      add to that road maintenance - Kaiser Pass road to Florence Lake and VVR
      is under Dept of Agricuture management, and if you have driven it you
      will see how they allocate funds: subsidize the water to the farmers
      below in the billions, but the road today look worse than 20 years ago,
      and it was BAD 20 years ago. There's a reason they are selling a
      T-shirt at VVR to let people brag that they actually drove that road and
      lived to tell the story ;-)
