Natimuk locals think they own the place 14-Jan-2005 At 2:46:23 PM Kris
You stirrer, I was merely interested

The Nati/Araps locals are no different to anyone else who visits Araps. They've trashed the place just as much as any. It was those guys who were blowing up kerosene tanks, and trashing phone boxes etc in their youth. Those dudes setting up climbing instruction companies etc in Nati, writing guidebooks, taking photos are profitting from and encouraging the behaviour you're talking about Dalai. They must understand that they can't have it both ways, they can't profit from the resource and expect it to remain in a pristine state and un-managed. The Nati locals are not (even self-appointed) custodians of the Mount. That said I love yous all, and don't get cranky at me

We all fell in love with Araps, but most of us also fell in love with life, love, families, other people's needs and wanted to make a broader contribution etc.
