The problem is Bryan as we have discussed before that every dollar that is given to these groups even if dedicated to trails frees up money for them to use against us in their never ending battle to free the woods of motorized use. Years ago I went through the process of applying for a grant to help us build bridges over waterways on the Naches trail. (couldnt get more enviro freindly then that) and was denied because and I qoute "we only support muscle powered sports" I wonder how many mt bikers and hikers use our bridges hmmmmm. Its great that they support their own but ****ed if I will ever support them. And yes it is madning that many of our vendors dont step up but many do and I support them when ever I buy.
