Randy, Mona and I gave highlights of our objections as requested by the Objections Officer (in this case, the Deputy Regional Forester) along with a couple of other OHV supporters and the president of Ochoco Trail Riders (Class I and III club)
USFS is now compiling comments from the meeting and will be sending out the information and working on setting resolution meeting to see what can be solved and what has to go back for more work by the ID team and Responsible Official (Forest Supervisor).
Hopefully my objections can be resolved, along with the others as well, and I, along with a couple of other people requested that boots on ground resolution meetings with staff on weekends. I let them know that I was available anytime, anywhere to meet and work with staff to see what can be resolved. I also told them that my trip over there was min. 5 hours drive and with fuel and lost time at work cost me at least $300.00 out of pocket, and that should say a lot about how much I believe in the project.
They will be sending out compilation of what is going on as far as re-work, resolution, etc. soon.
Will let everyone know as it comes out.
