Response to Convenience??


The issue isn't so much inconveniencing myself that I would seek to avoid. Afterall, I would love the opportunity to be inconvenienced on Denali.

The issue is that why should we be forced to plan on one of only four weekends per year to visit the IL cow pasture? Afterall, the highest landbound point isn't there anymore. Why suck up to the Wuebbel's rule for their IL cowpasture, when there is a better highpoint! I'll gladly plan a trip anywhere, but it will be at my discretion, my timing, my planning...not somebody else's that is unreasonably overprotective of their silly hill. It's a lot like the idiots that finally sold their RI hp to the decent and cool couple that owns Jerimoth now...If there were a higher point, manmade or otherwise in RI I would have gone to it. The idea here is having an alternate and equally valid claim to the highpoint; and I would promote the Sears Tower (especially if you climb the stairs!) as equally (or more) valid. My 2 cents that's all.
