Done - a little long and kinda personal at the end, but did it.

I filled it out, the idea that someone might read that and base our states manegment practices on it is scarey.

Rather "selective" in their questions and wording?

I used the "fill-in-the-blank" whenever it was offered (always to mention rustic 4WD and two-track access).

Done....


And of course mentioned rustic 4wd, and RESPONSIBLE 4wd use in all the fill in the blanks. Also mentioned their preference of dirt bikes/atv's over 4wd vehicles in one of them.

I am honestly very suprised that 'off-roading' was listed as an option at all.

Filled it out. Lovely DNR section. And it cut me off in the middle of my rant - apparently they didn't really want our opinion, did they?

GREAT start!

HUGE thank you to whomever "Stickied" the thread and put it on the front page
(CC?)!

Remember to get your spouses , friends and family to fill one out too.
This is a survey where we need thousands of responses rather than hundreds.
Like I said, this a great start . . . but we have a long way to go yet too.




Keep up the good work!
