Seriously, if I had a permit for 10/1 or the week after, I'd be all over my politicians, the news outlets, and the park service. I'd emphasize the costs I had already had, and how most of it was non refundable, non recoverable, and non negotiable
. I'd get the commercial outfitters and any private permit holders and we'd make such a stink they'd smell it in Washington. I wouldn't expect them to open the gates for me, but dammit, they'd know I was animated about the issue.
And on launch day I'd be at Lee's Ferry, ready to go. And it would take one damn lot more than a cop to stop me. I mean, he isn't going to shoot me, and he's gonna need more than one of him to arrest me. Or my group.
In other words, I'd become a radical. A sign toting, slogan yapping dare you to stop me radical.
Edward Abbey and the Monkey Wrench gang would have nothing on me.
