    I can only imagine what these people are going through. However I need to question the author, as to the Pilgrims being attacked?
    Playing the Devils advocate, I read where there are improprieties on the Pilgrims part along with the previous land owner.
    The author makes the analogy of 2 computer owners. 1 savy and the other a novice.
    In context, I'll use the bulldozer. I take a bulldozer and drive it to town, I suspect I'm asking for trouble.

    :confused:

    From my experience in Alaska, this is typical of the urban "Rangers" often assigned there. Driving a bulldozer to town might not get you any comment, if you use a trail which has been in use by heavy tracked vehicles for years. Driving a bulldozer train across untracked virgin permafrost muskeg is allowed only to government agencies. There are places south of Nome where the muskeg has still not recovered from the building of the White Alice stations in the 50s. Rather than fly in a couple of small earthmovers and making a strip to handle the larger ones, the Feds moved a "Cat train" across a hundred miles of virgin, fragile ground to get their men up to the mountaintop site. During the construction, a native eskimo neighbor of the site got in trouble for driving a Goliath to Nome. The fact that he had a badly injured construction worker with him and saved the man's life did not help him one bit.
