2,000 round-trip truckloads. Can someone estimate the amount of greenhouse gases that will contribute to the polution in Steamboat? Its pretty obvious, we are allowing others to kill us slowly. Don't forget to thank your local city councilman for shortening your life and killing what was once so good. --------------------------->
"All of those trucks have to come through town," he said. "That's a huge traffic issue."
There's no end to the traffic in the near future.
"On my project alone, we will have over 2,000 truckloads of rock and sand," Kohler said. "We're only a third of the way through that, probably."

Hey, I refuse to return to Steamboat because its already ruined. Its a complete disaster. An abomination of greed and ugly, stupid people who probably "earned" their money by taking advantage of someone. I don't respect rich people. I don't respect power to consume a small town and twist the life out of it. I don't respect your view that anger at this situation is a product of my not having the same assets. I respect compassion for nature. I respect compassion for the world that was before your greed arrived. I respect people who don't take more than they need because they hope to apear better than others. Just because you became a city official or politician or big land owner doesn't mean you are valuable or decent. It probably means you are better at manipulating people than doing the right thing for the greatest good. Take Steamboat, keep poluting it, developing every inch, inviting more outsiders, selling your crap, flaunting your worthless materialism. I care not for you, only for the sad aftermath you will leave behind. If there was true justice in the world, a great tornado or flood would wipe Steamboat and every other ruined place from the map. Go ahead suck up your blood money and enjoy a ghost town run by illegals. I would never be dumb enough to buy into Steamboat now. The most valuable things in life are the things you can't buy. And you can't buy your soul back. Sucker!

The Piolt is just copying the trend of spiraling into chaos, just like the rest of Steamboat and its surrounding areas. Anonymity is needed to get the truth out and to really invite true emotions. There is no need to hate the messenger. They are the pure voice of any place. They see the evil and the digression of the few. They are the heart and soul of what really matters in a place. They were probably there before the nonsense started and hope to return it to what it once was. Nothing stays pure for very long anymore. Our planet survived and flourished for eons until greedy, disgusting humans came along like a virus and poisoned everything. Want to help the world, destroy everything that angers you and send a message that it won't be tolerated. Go watch Fight Club and start your own project mahem in Steamboat. That will get those pencil-neck, money-loving dirtbags to pee their pants like the cowards they are. Build it and we will raze it. Let the revolution begin!

Oh boy! New land to develop and destroy! Hey, everybody, I'm Steamboat West, I found some beautiful, untouched land that is supposed to be used by the ever-shrinking natural habitat and wildlife, but i've got a better idea: let's put a bunch of hideous, second-rate, energy eating, over-priced homes, retail outlets and stores full of crap you don't need right here in the middle of this pristine place and totally RUIN it for the future generations. This is a great opportunity to be one of the first investors (aka: dirtbags) to ruin even MORE of what was once a beautiful space. Come on people, just accept it, everything has a price. Nothing lasts forever! Enjoy the last remnants of this stupid planet while you're still alive. God gave it to us so we could rape it for all its worth. Don't stop dreaming of the things we can ruin. They are getting more valuable because we are making the good stuff disappear. All aboard the moron express to oblivion!

Steamboat is really benefitting from all of the new development isn't it? Boy, I sure hope the invasion of rich morons continues so Steamboat can be blasted into oblivion and chaos and then see the rich folks sell their monstorsities they call second homes and leave an aftermath of ruin in their wake. What a great world we live in. Local governments with no balls being manhandled by money-grubbing dirtbags at the expense of those who just want to coexist with, enjoy and preserve the natural beauty of the place. Development has been out of control in almost every beautiful place since the late 80's when the world got so greedy it sold it's own soul for a wad of dirty dollars and the end of the healthy planet as we once knew it. Thanks for wrecking all things good and decent.
