No, then we all become sheep riding around in tour busses with our mouths agape. The government is trying very hard to push people into this mode by limiting our access to public lands already. We need wild places to discover on our on and treat with respect.

As for Mann's books: I think he has gone overboard all in the name of a buck. Plus he has some patent un-truths in his books because " it makes for a better story".

Those people who want to learn and discover will find ways to do so without the popular media giving them GPS cords!
