Road Inventory/Mapping 2005
In response to the new public land use policy that would soon go into effect The California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs had called on all member clubs to participate in an inventory of all roads and trails in their area. The Gear Grinders had willingly accepted the call. We inventoried by GPS mapping all roads and trails within our area of responsibility; an area of approximately 1718sq. miles covered on pages 64 and 65 of the DeLorme Atlas and Gazetteer of Southern California. It was a daunting task that took many hours and volunteers to accomplish. On the bright side, we got to drive our Jeeps!
