And there is, in fact, right now a canoe vendor who drives his dually diesel truck through there on a regular basis to pick up canoers.

You know, the interesting thing is, within the very first day after the first public meeting here, the paddling groups were on the blogs and they were talking about how the landowners are trying to keep them out, and you don't think if two or three of them get $1,000 fine, that's not going to get on the blogs? You bet it will," Boruff said.

Done deal.  TPW Commission Approves Devils River Land Acquisition

And I was one of the 20.

Quote
At Monday’s meeting, of 13 persons who testified before the commission, all said they favored the Devils River Ranch purchase. Of 24 written comments received from the public by TPWD, 20 supported the purchase.

Ok, what's next?  Next up?  Shall we get into the Christmas Mountains again?  Obviously there is zero money now for Chinati.
