Sorry Dude- they never did a thing for me--ever

Let's see.
A "not for profit" organization who's director commands a $250,000/yr salary.
Operates a 4 star hotel at the top of Crawford Notch- that competes directly with other "for profit" org's (like the Mt.Washington Hotel, a mere 2 miles up the road).
Last time I actually went into the AMC "Headquarters" in Pinkham Notch was probably 10 years ago- and at that time you could quite literally show up in shorts and flipflops in mid January, and equip yourself for a weekend up at Tuck's. The AMC "not for profit" that competes directly against my friend Rick Wilcox.
There member list, which includes many "pro bono" lawyers, are always willing to take up the Clubs cause.
It's basically a group of people from Joy St. in Boston who have decided to make the National Forest in my backyard, their own personal playground.
Ban the AMC is more like it.

I have felt that way for years. Well said!

Besides the FACT that the AMC is chock full of wannabees. Personally, I find no attraction to that kinda shit. Again, just me.

Recently saw some leaders in the AMC's rock program belaying. My GF who is a big AMC'r was shocked when I pointed out thier amazing belay technique. They WILL NOT be belaying me any time soon.
