-Joseph VTurner. +I believe it is because to these members, bushwalking is an escape from lifeNormal living involves mixing with people of all kinds and opinionsIt means doing one'​s ​share of the community'​s work. Also most of us cannot feel satisfied with the world as it is and living means fighting to change itIn such a liferecreation plays a very necessary part and bushwalking appears to me one of the best forms of recreationBut it is no more all of Living than sleeping is all of living. And it is when people forget this the trouble beginsWhen the week is just something to be got through for the sake of the week-end to come; when all one's interest centres on food-listsmapsand transport then various abnormalities appearTo some, test-walks or the fulfilment ​of some schedule become a fe tish and club traditions sacredSome dream of the primitive existence on a desert island (well supplied with the products of modern industry via Paddy-made). Little cliques spring up, happy together and not very interested in other members.

-With Ray Bean'​s ​open letter many of us must agreeMany Bushwalkers are intolerant. They look down on other walkers, other clubsother members ​of their own clubThey are particularly intolerant ​of the non-bushwalker publicThey don't like picnickersthey don't like scoutsthey don't like shacks, they don't like aliens, they don't like motoristsWild statements often made about farmers'​ methods ​of using (and abusing) the landShow no appreciation ​of the farmer'​s need to liveWhy this intolerance?​ +
