I don't get it. Seems just like pipe dreaming. Do you have the actual ideas on how this could work in reality? Do you have the means to purchase the property and make it happen?

Saying things like it will have to have "smart" planning doesn't really do much for me. That's subjective and the only smart idea is the one that works.

Speculating that someone "could" do this, when there's no prospect of anyone actually doing it isn't really productive in conserving the land and making it accessible to the public.

Personally, I'm not against it being purchased by a private individual. That very may well happen and I'll go back to my world as it was when this was off the table.

What I'd hate to see is anything turned to development, which I doubt will happen... but it's always a possibility in private hands.

So St. Regis, not to poo-poo your ideas, but here's a number of things small groups can do to make a big difference:

Organize volunteer groups to help clean, repair and build

Set up a not-for-profit that does fund raising that goes directly to hiring Stewards to educate and assist Rangers in issuing violations (they cannot, but they can direct the Ranger's attentions).

Support advocacy groups that donate money into improving the existing infrastructure i.e. trails, lean-tos, latrines and educating the public on LNT

These things all work and make our public lands better for everyone, and help to conserve these areas.
