Travel Management: Set Goals to help FS with mapping and errors
This was a good meeting to reconnect with the members of this collaborative, because all of the other meetings are in person in a location that is a 1 1/2 hour drive one way, and that doesn’t have adequate internet to participate virtually. Since the other people I used to drive with are no longer attending, I have to drive alone; the road is full of semis, and I have trouble seeing at night due to my recent cataract surgery. Keeping up with the activities of this collaborative is important because we still are landowners in the Zuni Mt. area and many of our friends still live in the Zuni Mts. The actions of this group affect how the land in that area is managed, and I like to keep track of what is being done by the Forest Service and others.
