Ross Taylor from Vertical Life recently penned this article and along with an account of how this fire hit quite close to home (his parents home and property is in Wartook) he outlines some of the reasons why things might seem to take so long to be repaired or reopened. While I may not agree with all PV processes or decisions, I work closely with many of the on ground staff who are all dedicated outdoor people who really do try to balance the interests of park care and user groups. If you think you are feeling frustrated, I can tell you they are feeling it as much and often more. Time and time again, the reopenings are linked directly to the money they have, or more to the point, don’t have. Ross’ piece gives you something to think about and why patience is the name of the game.
