It looks like the new FS Trail Guide scandal has hit the big time with posting of an article today by the Washington Examiner.
Washington Examiner Article on FS Trail Guide Scandal
As I said in the article, I believe this project is a prime example of gross incompetence by the federal government on any number of levels. The first question that should be asked is, “Why was this project needed when the FS already has a number of highly skilled OHV trail master-performers and proven OHV BMPs?” Second, “Who authorized this frivolous and unneeded project that was funded with taxpayer dollars?”
Third, “When is the agency going to ‘man-up’ and admit this was a huge mistake on their part and assure Congress, taxpayers, and the OHV community that something like this won’t happen again?”
All of those are questions that must be answered and the sooner the better. HQ urges readers to leave a comment at the Washington Examiner website to show that we are not going to be insulted by this type of bias.
Thanks again to Ron Arnold and the Washington Examiner for covering public land recreation issues.
