where we are. We twisted and wound through the woods throughout the course of the day finally making it back to camp. I am relieved to say that we made it back. The intersections were just not marked as well as in our home state. Day Two We assembled in the morning and our fearless leaders came up with a game plan to head for higher elevations and hope for better trails. We begin to climb in elevation and to our delight we found that the trails were a little better due to snow that fell overnight. There was laughter stories and camaraderie amongst all. How could the day be better We were adults that were kids again if even for a brief period of time. Final Thoughts The trail system in Vermont is run by an overwhelming amount of volunteers and we definitely have a much better groomed trail system than New Late Winter 2016 41 Cindy you did a great job organizing this reciprocal weekend. I know it was a lot of work but it was great. It is always nice going to different areas to see how they do things differently. When riding in groups it is hard to fit things together but you did it and kept it going. We learned how important it is to have great signed trails. We should always look for physical landmarks to show our way back. Thanks again - Maurice Barnes Hampshire. Without a doubt Vermont trails are much better marked. Saying Thank You to all those volunteers will never seem to be enough. I am truly proud to say that I belong to VAST and appreciate our volunteers and landowners much more than I could have imagined. Without the volunteers and landowners we would not have the amazing trail system that we do in our great state of Vermont. Thanks Cindy for posting the whole reciprocal outing together and allowing my friend Maurice Barnes and Rich a friend of Maurices. We found the trails very good in spite of very thin cover. Feeding the Canadian jays was fun and captured on film. The turkey club dinner at Pittsburg was very very good and followed by fireworks on Saturday night. New Hampshire could take a lesson on trail signing from Vermont. I will reserve judgment on grooming as after all it was reciprocal weekend and I think every sled in New England and beyond was in Pittsburg. - Gordon Holmes Reciprocal Weekend
