Deanna: H12 Residents ♥ Megaloads

Deanna Goodlander: (Re: Set rules of road for megaloads): I spent a weekend in July at Three Rivers Resort with family and friends. Three Rivers Is where the Selway, the Lochsa and the Clearwater meet on the road where the megaloads pass through. Got some interesting discussion with folks who live in that neck of the woods. They are very much in favor of the megaloads. They say it helps the economy (which struggles in that neck of the woods) and does not impact the road. In fact they turn out to cheer when the loads go by. They say it is environmentalists who are more opposed to the oil industry and just use this as an excuse. If fact they are pretty angry at those who oppose the loads. Including telling us visitors not to frequent a restaurant owned by one of those who oppose, who is a fairly new property owner to the area.

Question: Do you have strong feelings one way or the other re: megaloads?
