We are all signed up for members to preform trail patrols for this year.  

Signup here for running some summer patrols of the trail.  I would like to get at least 1 per month but more would be better.  In talking with Kyle we need to have more of a presence on the trail leading up to the re-opening this summer.


The Basics:

-Must signup here before going

-Minimum 2 rigs, max of 4 (No solo patrols)

-Groups of 4 should split into 2 groups of 2 and meet in the middle on the trail

-All rigs must be stickered member club rigs (non-members can ride along but only with a member in the members rig. sorry prospects, this is part of the contract with the forest service)

-Bring OHV maps to hand out to anyone you meet on the trail, door magnets, and volunteer vests.  Kyle is usually in the camino office 7 to 9 am thursday through sunday so it is easy to stop by on the morning when you head up.


What you do:

-Be friendly to people on the trail but inform them it is closed and give them a OHV map

-Be friendly, you are advisement not enforcement (but you can let them know that the ticket isnt cheap and because it is closed on a court order the forest service is not allowed to give warnings)

-Be friendly and invite them to reach out to the club and get involved in a trail work day (we arent hunting for members with this but asking to get them on a list for when we need volunteer work, tell them that the more people who help the sooner we can get it re-opened)

-Take pics and perform any basic maintenance work needed.


What next:

-Post up here dates you are interested/free and trying to find someone to go with

-Post up some pics of the trail, give a quick post about when you went, who went, how many rigs you saw on the trail, what type of rigs seen (jeep, atv, dirtbike, etc.), and the number of maps handed out.  I will then put this information on the trail report form and submit it to Kyle.

-I will get whomever is going some door magnets, maps to hand out, and some volunteer vests.  (I have a set of magnets and vests but Kyle should have some available for pickup at his office) I am currently out of maps though. 


Also note that there is nothing in our forest service contract that prohibits camping on the trail during a patrol.

I tried (and failed) to get one going last year. Hopefully I'll get a group going this year.

I used to wheel a lot. . .
