    DuPont Survey for SORBA Members

    Received this in an e-mail. (No Russian brides.)

    Subject: Your feedback is requested on the Use and Value of Dupont State Forest
    David Brown is seeking input from user groups on the use and value of DuPont State Forest. Following is a request for feedback from forest users.

    DSF first opened to the public in 1997. The initial purchase of 7,600 acres included Hooker Falls and Wintergreen Falls. Triple, High and Bridal Veil Falls were obtained later and opened to the public in December 2000.

    After 13 years, eight years with full time staff, it is time to evaluate this young State Forest.

    Why do you like or not like the forest?

    What does it mean to the community and to the region?

    It is also important to look ahead.

    What changes are needed?

    What would you like to see improved?

    I invite SORBA members to write and tell me your feelings about the forest. Please send your comments to Forest Supervisor, PO Box 300, Cedar Mountain, NC 28718. Hard copies of letters are preferred, typed or hand written OR send email to david.r.brown@ncdenr.gov.

    Thanks,
    David R. Brown

    More trails, less gravel, fewer horses and suggested routes with map at the kiosk.

    Move it closer to Asheville.

    I can deal with shared use areas and believe the horseback riders have their needs but why not designate some trails for their use only and others for mtnbikers. Actually why not limit horses to the double-trac only, especially keep them off of the purpose-built bike trails like Ridge Line and Airstrip.

    Multiple SORBA chapters received this message from Mr. Brown. I believe that he is addressing "SORBA" because he knows that as an organization we have a vested interest in this forest. However, he really has no way of cross-referencing any letters that he would receive to know if you are a member or not.

    Therefore if you have constructive criticism or just want to express your opinion I would encourage all MTB'ers to do so. In fact, we could probably benefit from people posting their letters for constructive criticism here.

    Just remember that you represent a group that would like improved access to the forest when you submit comments and letters.
    BS'ing less, riding more.
