Ok, let me get this straight...
So when the Forest Service (who's tasked with management of the Wilderness) doesn't do it's job in a timely manner (just how long ago did they hear about this from mnlumberjack, an FS volunteer no less?), then someone else steps up to the plate to do the job and what, practically gets smacked down by what comes across to me
as a You better do this only with proper authorization or you'll be arrested!
I can see the headline now: A group from the fanatical wilderness protection organization 'HAZ' arrested for Removing graffiti without a permit'.
I tell ya'... when it appears to be ok to spray paint on rocks in a wilderness but not clean it up, what is this world coming to?
Yes, in this litigious society I understand the need for waivers and such for structured groups, but a few individuals who just happen to be HAZ members doing something good? Sorry that just stinks.
