The discussion was about what we were going to do if our grant proposal was accepted.
Our grant proposal was for $27,700 and our goal is start using and doing the work in March or April, before the heat hits.
We would be involved with the setting up and labeling the Back Country Byway in Goldbutte area. This would not necessarily include kiosks. It would be setting up the markers for the Scanlon Freeway road and another road. It was 62 miles with 100 signs. We will need a pounder and jack hammer. We will try to add GPS coordinates. Europeans like to use these roads. We will need to keep track of our mileage.
They would also like our trip maps for the Searchlight area. To convert for their use our DNR Garmin must be converted to .SHP.
BLM is trying to set up Travel Management Routes in Southern Nevada. A Resource Management Plan is also due by September 2015. They also want to have this done for the Searchlight area.
