I read what you wrote. Horses were extinct in North America until introduced
some 500 years ago. Now if you want to argue that they were re-introduced,
you could, but you'd have to explain the differences between the fossil
record and the horses that are out there now. Shall we release some wolves
into England and tell the locals it's okay, they belong there.

I agree with you on a philosophic basis, bikes are indeed inanimate and if
I
ever see one out on a trail on its own, I'll order it off the trail.


There is no right to bring a bike onto a trail.


Why ever do you say such a silly thing. I have every right to ride the
trails.

That's being done in the US.

Why? We just returned something that should never have been killed in
the first place.

Yes, of course.

BS. There is no "right" to mountain bike. That was settled by a
federal court in 1994: http://mjvande.nfshost.com/mtb10.htm.

And beavers have been reintroduced in Scotland, after being gone
hundreds of years.

You may have meant that as hyperbole.

Assholes did exactly that to us in Wisconsin. Really.

People from Chicago released wolves in Wisconsin?

Of course we should. It could be pretty entertaining. Quite how
gruesomely entertaining, you can read in my short story "The
Survivor". Don't get it from Amazon; you have to pay on Amazon. Get it
from Smashwords free of charge
http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/72627

Come to think of it, another free short, in "Two Shorts"
http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/73667
has a hi-fi connection...

Now that is just wonderful, Andre. I have seldom been more entertained
or bemused than I was while perusing the first page of your 'outwrite'.
In my experience, prose of similar quality to yours is seldom found in
the public domain.


I'm glad you enjoyed the story Mike. I give away free books and short
pieces all the time as promotion; it generates word of mouth. If you,
or any other RBTer, want to read the novel, IDITAROD, from which The
Survivor is an outwrite, write to info at coolmainpress with the
commercial extension with the title of the book in the subject line
and Gemma will send you a 100% off coupon to use at Smashwords.

It raises intriguing questions, such as: precisely how many limbs do
awkward teenagers usually have?, and; does a plane impacting on frozen
soil really make that noise - or are your teeth special?


Ha! Another writer was also stopped by teenagers with too many limbs.
See, an outwrite is in a much rawer state than the text in a novel,
which is obsessively rewritten and polished. In a sense, the readers
of an outwrite are its copy-editors. In a while I'll update the story
with solutions to all the valid difficulties reported to me, including
images that stop readers when that isn't my intention, and eventually
it will be as polished, and flow as smoothly, as the novel itself.

Try dragging your finger across your hair when you've just washed it,
or against your teeth when you've just brushed them. You'll hear the
squeak of cleanliness.
