Yep.

Um, dude, the other sign says "Stay (On) The Trail." That's a whole initiative from COHVCO.
Which would indicate that COHVCO would be down with it.
Need to ask Brant if he is... I am, but it has to pass USFS muster.

I see what you were saying and I like the "no BS" down to earth language but I'm afraid it widens the gap between users (i.e. 4 wheeling and hiking/mtn biking) even further. No need to cause resentment by sounding as though we are all that matter.
I guess I'm saying that the message can be just as strong without specifically focusing on motorized users.
Ah, I see what you were saying now. I just figured that hikers and mountain bikers weren't really part of the problem.

Not yet. I have a call and a couple emails into him. Thursday is probably going to be the only night I have this week to do it.
