I totally agree.
I've been riding the trails this season since early December, we had more than enough snow out there and still till now (Jan 09 2008) barely any trails have been groomed or maintained, not to mention the poorly documented and marked trails, i cannot count how many times i've come to a crossing or intersection and not having any dam idea which turn to make (RIGHT? LEFT? Straight?) who freekin knows.
It's a sad sad thing when you start to really think about it (OFSC that is) where one will pay $200 - $300 for a trail pass and nothing is done all season on many of the trails, but think about this a bit, when things do get done who does them????? (Volunteers) thats who, so what does the clubs really have to pay for??? hmm a little gas money for groomers, some insurance, some printing for bad MAPS and a few baddly posted signs, i see more signs warning about using trail at own risk than telling me where the heck i am going.
Anyway thats my take on the situation and i plan on buying a new GSP unit so that i can start making my own maps of trips i like to take, at least i know i will get there.
Oh another thing, try calling your local club or OFSC and see if anyone will ever pickup the freekin phone!!!!. I recently had my windshield broken, so of course my permit was on it, so now what?? well i had to try and call them to get a replacement, no freekin way i was going to pay full pop for a new one, but i never ever got through, i gave up after three weeks and decided to cut the windshield with tin snips and put the permit in my compartment. If i get stopped and they give me shit for it i will give them one huge piece of my mind.
