SO this must be the future of the route designation. Here in Florida, we are in the midst of 3 ADPs. The Ocala ADP is turning into such an exercise in futility.....
THe Phase I ADP is completed but no maps, except for the OHV (ATVs and Motorcycles) map. But when we take the maps that are published on the USFS site and ride the trails that are marked on the map that (somewhat) coincide with the trails, we find (what we are referring to as) Yard Sale signs saying the trails are closed to prevent further resource damage. Nice.
In addition to all this, several off roaders throughout the state have been ticketed in 2 of the 3 forests for "excess resource damage"without ever witnessing the resource damage, just presumptions because we have mud on our Jeeps (and yes they say, you're getting a ticket because you have mud on your Jeep). This past weekend, the ticket in my own club was a "no parking" ticket issued after a volunteer saddled up next to the guy outside one of the big campgrounds where the atvs hang out, kept him there by talking to him until a ranger arrived to issue the ticket. A poorly marked No Parking area at that.
So dear friends, the FS has its marching orders and the order are to harass the off road community out of the forest. Pardon me while I go barf now.
