20 Mule Team Riders vs. OHVer's

O.K. Here's another on e from me, then I'll crawl back to where I came from.

I'd like to know if any of the 60 or 100 milers at the 20 Mule Team Ride had
any trouble with the OHVer's that seemed to be out in-force last weekend. I
sit on the advisory board of the Jawbone Canyon OHV Facility that oversees
that area. I'd like to report to them that there was no problem between
horses and OHV's. I personally did not have any problems. I did have several
motorcyles scream by me, but since my horses have been "de-sensitized" to
OHV's, it was not a big deal.

Will you let me know? We are always discussing sharing trails at our
meetings. Although I am not an OHVer, the BLM was wise enough to place people
with different perspectives on their board. It has worked well. I am
impressed with the people from the OHV community as to their willingness to
"co-habitate" with other trail users. They appreciate having my view as an
equestrian so that they understand our concerns. I may even get the president
of the Calif. Off-Road Vehicle Assoc. to do a limited distance ride soon!

Anyway, your comments would be appreciated. That's all!
