That whole deal was chewed on pretty thoroughly some years back. Lets just say that the agreement with the timber company to use the land excluded motorcycles and leave it at that for now.

Spent the morning at the Capitol making presentations at five senate offices. The point was to work out a lead and co-sponsors for the required senate version of the OHM bill. All went well.

Our bill should go right through early in the session in January. Laying the ground work for that to happen now.

In the DNR email blasts that I get it says that they're considering opening up trails for ATV/UTV use at Woodboro Lakes near Rhinelander. Does that also mean plated dualsports and 2-wheel ORV, also?

As with other trails, it is up to the local land manager. It varies by county and state property.

State Trails Council today in Oshkosh. Packed a lot into the meeting.

We've been doing a lot with the concept of trail towns and some initiatives there (at least with some user groups). I gave an orientation about how Boulder Junction evolved to add dual sporting to their recreational catalog. Nice to be able to show a case where facts and reality prevailed.

Off Road Vehicle Council meeting today. The purpose was to resolve some issues prior to our funding meeting next month. We have a ton of funding requests for ATV trails to deal with that may total twice the amount of the money that is available. Perhaps about $7M in requests.

Boulder Junction folks stopped by the Central Rally site.

They mentioned that interest in promoting dual sporting is starting to spread to other communities in the area - even some that are not warm to ATVs.

I like that this successful project is seeding some others. All good for our recreational interest.

Yes, very heartening.

The Off-Road Vehicle Council (WI) met this week. We dealt with some funding issues this time.

After trail maintenance miles for ATV trails were paid, we had just under $3M to spend on just under $7M in requested projects that ranged from trail and bridge rehab down to maps and signage. Hard to sort through all this with a $4M shortfall, but we managed to work through it.

In the end, I think we made good choices as far as what to fund.

Once we get the OHM legislation in place (and we generate some money) we will eventually have a similar process for those trail funds.

Things are looking good up here; the idea of a county wide referendum was shot down, and the Phelps atv connector was approved. Heard today on the radio the Phelps plan has a 2 year sunset clause, meaning it's gone in 2 years if someone screws it up for everybody. Would be nice not to have to drag the buggies to another state or county just to ride!

Spent a couple of days in NW WI as part of an ORV Council meeting. Met with some county foresters and spend some time in the field on trail maintenance and funding issues. Also trying to improve the grant review system to help us do the best we can in reviewing grant applications.

John Newton of WDSR approached his hometown township board (Laona, WI) about allowing off-highway motorcycle use on a tract of township land in Forest County. Over time he was able to get approval from the board to establish single track motorcycle trail on a portion of an 80 acre tract. John says that the single track will be used during WDSR events but that it will also remain open for public use anytime. Even though he only recently got approval for his initiative, he and the WDSR folks managed to put in about .7 miles of trail that will be included in this month's event. Next year they will be able to continue trail building and hope to get a total of about 3 miles of single track on the portions of the property they are allowed to use.

This is great news! It will also serve as an example for other similar opportunities that might be developed on small tracts in other places around the state.

John mentioned that the trail will be shared with some other user groups like mountain bikes and equestrians but ATVs will be excluded to preserve the single track quality of the trail.

Thanks John for going after this!
