NPS’ Bill Line left me a message: “Yes, the Parcourse is being replaced,” he said. “The reason why is because the equipment is old and has lived its life and needs to be removed. We are installing new equipment. I don’t know when that work will be completed.”

So there you have it. Something old is being replaced by something new. I called back to find out what and left another message. I’d lay odds that the new equipment will be awesome, because new stuff is usually better than old stuff.
