New York!
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

Somehow I doubt that residents of NYC give a flying f#@k about the Bend and the people who live there. It's all about politics and which side you're on. Good on the Times for trying to expose the plight of real people along the border, but shame on them for bringing "the wall" into the picture to make a political statement. What could have been a real success story turned into a Clinton ad.

I think everyone on this forum can agree that a wall would be terrible for big bend. I'm surprised more people aren't talking about it. They are scared about getting political. I think if they are thinking of building a wall we need to be talking about it. I will be down there to stop them physically from building a wall if it comes down to that.

Oh. The Wall. If construction continues down south, I would hate to see the destruction that would occur just to get the equipment to the river in the Bend. I'd personally protest that.
