Rantings against Imba are mis-guided, we would be much better served by using that energy to rally against this legislation.
Personally I have a very pessimistic view that this legislation can be stopped or even modified to take other rec. users groups interests into account. I suspect any trail within ANY state rec. area that we have access to is in the cross hairs of equestrians. No matter the statements of the resident DNR Land Mgr. to the contrary. I can see them taking over any trail we maintain or even develop on state land. Good by Waterloo , so long Poto. Which is way I'm thinking I cut my last bench cut on state land yesterday.
As for IMBA , if IMBA is nothing more then a glorified "payroll company" then they need to stop beating themselves on the chest on how they are this awesome advocacy organization. I'm sure it's some what galling to see pronouncements by IMBA on how they have won access here or any where that was actually accomplished by a local organisations.
