WV OHV POLL - (please take a moment and fill out) -

Post by JMM » Thu Feb 28, 2008 3:47 pm

I know there have been several polls before, but I was just curious about the information from the polls. After the polls had been created and numerous people had taken time to fill them out it would be nice to see the information laid out.

Just a couple of questions

Thanks, Jason

My $0.02...I think it would be great if they opened a park. However, there are so many free places to wheel in WV (for now anyway) their fees would have to be pretty cheap.

You're really liking these google forms, aren't you? :)

I'll put in my 2 cents. I sorta agree with smccollamjr, but I'd rather pay a little to wheel and know it's legal to always have a question in the back of my mind.

EDIT: A comments field would be nice, too, Jason, but I know you'll probably get a bunch of junk comments.

Sure wish I knew where these places are. If there were a park like Rausch Creek within an hour or 2, I would probably pay to use it 5-6 times a year.

I'm with Flexed, depending on the distance, it'd be awesome to have something like that.

I'd love to have a park to legally wheel at. I'd probably pay a little bit to do it...I go probably twice a month right now in the dead of winter, so I'm assuming I'll do it more during the summer months

I agree with Kevin. I know there are plenty of free places to go in WV, but going to a park you know there are going to be designated trails with varying degrees of difficulty, without having to guess.

You just posted a comment in a comment field. I can add one and then delete anything that may need deleted.

When you guys say "They" who are you talking about? The state? I think the chances the state would come and put together a park envolving OHV and trails would be about a 1% chance... they may listen and they may think about it but when people find out with off of the things this state needs I cant see them putting the time, land, and money to build and man it. I'd love it if they did... as much as the rest of you guys, but I think if its going to happen its going to have to be a private party that puts it together to get it done.

thats just my $0.02 - I may be wrong? Thats just how I see it right now.

I agree, it's hard to get the state to do anything. Let alone something that they wouldn't be able to get a big profit out of.

You all know just as well as I do that it's all about lining SOMEONE'S pockets.

Hmm...even a private venture could do pretty good depending on location. Let's say the land was owned/free/etc....hypothetically speaking....how much would it be to build one? I'm saying build the climbs, make everything nice, if the whole group pitched in?

When I say "they", I'm definitely not referring to the state; rather, someone with enough initiative, capital, and/or contacts to get something happening. Maybe it's the Hatfield-McCoy guys, or the Paragon guy? Or maybe even us and MOR?

I saw an article about these guys in the most recent Low Range mag - http://www.jonfund.com/
From what I understand, the JonFund is a group of guys that are securing access to land for their group through permits, leases, and even land purchases. Kind of a procative OHV club - definitely something worth exploring.

That Jon fund is really interesting Dan, good place to keep an eye on and see how its working for them.


Over 50 people have filled out the poll posted above... here is a quick run down of the numbers

100% interested (duh)
95% from WV - some from PA, and KY
Concentraited locations in WV are North Central WV and South Central WV
average mileage on four wheeling trips is 469 miles round trip
split pretty good on camping/hotel - most would do either
95% wheel with a club or group of some kind
and the two states they travel so far are PA (Paragon/Rousch) and KY


I'll post back up after 100 replies and see show what has changed
