Gary Meeker and I learned last week that Mr. John Titre of the USFS, Nogales Ranger District, is taking a transfer to Utah on the Ashley National Forest near Vernal. This new assignment gets him back to where his career with the Forest Service began and closer to his grandkids. So, this is great news for John but not so much for TRS. If it was not for John, the Red Spring Trail most likely never would have been established. He was our moto trail champion. His work ethic while he was with the Nogales Ranger District is unmatched. We may never again see the likes of his dedication and support of our motorized interests. Tomorrow we will meet with John to wrap up some loose ends about the Red Spring Trail information kiosk project.
Gary and I are working to put together some parting mementos for John. We think an appreciation plaque and a TRS club jersey are appropriate.
Cheers, (or maybe tears)
