The National Forest Service LOVES the Clean Up event.
It's been a GREAT way to let them know we're 'good guys' too.
It helps them get to 'know' us in another context, other than just the guys who write those loonnggg trail proposals in response to their projects.
The NFS 'guy' who handles our Clean Up is also the 'guy' I dealt with for the M-37 Project comments and one of the Baldwin District personnel I brought out on a trail ride to show them our chosen form of recreation first hand. His attitude toward us had been determined years before I took him out into the woods. It was formed through my continued yearly contact with him setting up this event. He (and MANY more, now) knows we're here to stay and are the type of people who can get things done.
In other words, the perfect candidates for a collaborative effort to get meaningful 4x4 trails designated in the Forest.
