    One of the challenges we face in dealing with the DNR and other agencies is their perception that we make up such a small percentage of the folks who use public land that they don't need to bother with us. We can tell them about our membership numbers, the trail miles we maintain, but in the end what really counts is our impact on the economy. The attached form is meant to help us gather information about dollars spent on wheeling trips, man hours spent using public resources, and the impact we have on local communities. How much you spent fixing your truck the week before your trip isn't included - although it has an economic impact, it is harder to guage than a $100 hotel bill in West Branch or a $40 meal in Gaylord.

    Please feel free to pass it along to other people outside GLFWDA - we need as many responses as we can get in order to build a proper database. At some point, when we have gathered enough information to make a useful report, we will make the summary data available via the GLFWDA website.

    I wish I had finished this up before SnoFari so it could be passed out at sign-in, but if you still have a fresh enough recollection of your spending, SnoFari information would be a great place to start.

    Thanks,

    If anyone has a contact in the Mudchuggers, I would love to get this to them before SnoBlind.
