Exactly my thoughts. I heard a lot about that register and IT was a HUGE reason for me to get out to Black Kaweah and spent 30 minutes or so going through it in peace. I will not be going up there this year any more...I think some registers are very special, and could serve as a reason for some visitors to visit the mountain. I do not see why anyone should take it from where it belongs, no matter if it is to preserve a signature at a museum or to have it around home. As long as there is one authentic signature from your Clydes, Eichorns, Dawsons, Jensens, etc why take dozens of them?
If person who took the register (from Black Kaweah) is reading, please do your best to return it to where it belongs. It is a long ways in there, and if you do not want to hike all that way you can PM me and I can return it for you. 100% confidential, would not judge you in any way, and would actually respect you a lot for admitting your fault and doing the right thing. And to all others who have any historic registers in possession, please return them, or PM me, and I might return them if I am interested in the peak.
Actually, I want to make an effort to have some of the historic registers be returned to where they belong. Not sure if it will work but I think it is the right thing to do.
