Big Deal Rock Climb? That's a funny one to replace, was there something wrong with the bolts? Maybe check Grave Robber next to it as Chris and I put those bolts in at the same time.

Nepotism? Stupidity? Blind hubris?

Perhaps the most poignant quote
"Trump is not known to have taken any briefings from the State Department yet, despite having conversations with several foreign leaders,according to a source at State. Trump has made moves that run directly counter to U.S. foreign policy, such as speaking with Taiwan's president a talk that upset China and suggested to U.S. diplomats that he doesn't care what they think. Trump also has yet to select a secretary of state, a delay that could be due to his awareness of the importance of that role but which is nonetheless deepening anxiety within the Foreign Service."

That water is going to be HEAVY in four years.
Welcome to the trump era!! build it and they will come with there $$$ and there entitled lifestyles!

Mentioning Trump is disingenuous at best.
No, I don't think this'll go through.  It's an asinine proposition.  The Cog has a use permit for a railway, not a resort.  And a 35-guest-room-restaurant-resort will be huge: can't see it happening in under 7,000 square feet.  All kinds of variances will need to be granted to construct such a structure.  Fish and Game and TWMNF will both oppose construction.  The AMC will remain silent and I suspect the Society for the Protection of NH Forests will too.

So far, we've managed to create a serious hiccup in the AMC's plans for the Sparkling Cascade Hut (been told recently there'll be an update by year's end) and the AMC's pockets and influences are far deeper than the Cogs.  Remember, the AMC wanted to build on Sphinx Col on the 60's and was shut down.

It is absolutely imperative that the Coos County planning board members feel how strong opposition is to this project.  If you're among those who'd prefer the Cog not build, sign the petitions that are circulating.  And GO TO THE MEETING THIS THURSDAY.  Be vocal.
