    I know...that's tomorrow. Fortunately, I've been led to believe our comments can be general and simply in support of responsible motorized recreation (or MTB too or whatever) and its easy to make them on this link:

    Here is the background:

    Here is the Recreation Assessment: (moto mentioned in lotsa places, but 38 and 51 are worth a peek). Every recreation in the GMUG is listed. Its an interesting read.

    Good job!

    For our off-road inmates, this covers Taylor Park, Sargents, Crested Butte, Uncompahgre, Telluride and everything in between thats in GMUG forests!

    If you have a few minutes maybe at lunch today, take a spin through the Recreation Assessment. Consider making a few comments in support of dispersed camping, existing trails/singletrack and maybe talk about how great riding in general is for physical and mental state and how it gets you out into nature and beautiful scenery for awesome bonding experiences.

    Those are just some ideas to hopefully get a few of you off high center. In my comments, I mentioned conflicts with Rzrs as a problem and how their drivers tend to go off trail and like to tear it up and I also mentioned the need for more dumpsters in popular places like Taylor Park.
