Default Blue Ribbon Task Force - Outdoor Recreation

An Executive Order by the Governor has formed a Blue Ribbon Task Force regarding outdoor recreation. The two attachments address both the Executive Order and the Outdoor Recreation Plan - 2013; the Plan consists of 196 pages of reading material.

And how does everyone think this will affect USFS efforts at recreation planning? I've already informed the team that built the Blue Mountains plan revision that they may want to look at the differences between Oregon and Washington as far as OHV is concerned. Part of the Umatilla NF is up here, and so far I see nothing to distinguish the part in Washington. Earl and Sande are working on it too, and they could very well catch something I missed with their better knowledge and experience with the FS.

Umatilla has totally ignored Class II (4x4) in it's trail planning and has no plans to implement any Class II opportunities in the near to medium future as far as I can see. I see them at every RAC meeting and keep hammering on it, to no avail.

There's a couple of good trails in the WA. portion of the forest that we plan on giving them grief about, and the Supervisor has been warned. At the meeting on the 4th we had almost half our club present, and we all spent some serious time making our views known. Got a couple other issues going as well, but I'll hold off on those till I have more info...
