Armchair analysis promoting padodes.
Having become a proud first time father over the New Year I am currently confined to armchair analysis of the posts on MV. From the comfort of my chair I must wholeheartedly support padodes in the efforts he made to ensure an abandoned tent and rubbish were cleaned up in Wicklow. I realized his original post about the matter was removed from public view, presumably while PURE looked into the matter. I hope evidence of the identity of the polluters was gained and I hope his original post can be restored to public view, including the photo of the tent. David Kirk posted a piece suggesting padodes should have taken care of the mess himself. While I admire David Kirkís commitment to collecting all the rubbish he finds in the hills I think there is only so much individuals can do. The last thing we need is the very people who care about the hills to argue about who should remove rubbish. We are presumably all on the same side against the savages who would wantonly dump and destroy. So well done padodes on the efforts you and Simon made to sort it out with PURE. And letís not give the polluters the satisfaction of having hillwalkers pointing the finger at each other.
