UFWDA - United Four Wheel Drive Association Contributes $5,000 Grant in Support of the DBBB Legal Fund
Back in October of 2018 we very graciously were awarded a $5,000 Grant from the UFWDA - United Four Wheel Drive Association. The funds from this Grant come at a great time and will be used directly in support of the ongoing DBBB - Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway’s Legal fees. We will continue working towards the goal of sustaining this beautiful route indefinitely.
The fight has heartened up. This past year alone in 2018, SFWDA contributed $56,538 in cash along with countless volunteer man hours both on the trails and behind the scenes diligently working to bring this all to fruition.
The future is bright! There has already been a very positive impact within the local Slade, KY and surrounding communities. Our OHV presence when travel to and from the DBBB is now where and how a considerable amount of revenue is being generated. Visiting these communities is boosting their economies considerably. We now have the attention of local residents and politicians. As always we will Tread Lightly! and be sure to respect all land owners and always stay on the designated routes. Digital Maps at a nominal cost are available from Cartotracks to keep you on track.
So, now after three very successful Meet and Ride events held on the DBBB trails it was obvious people love these trails and want more of them. There are now 50-100+ miles of expansion of the DBBB planned to meet the growing need of the OHV community for entry level experience. The roads throughout the DBBB are part of the historical county transportation systems which make the right-of-ways county property and allows access to the public. The DBBB is of moderate difficulty and open to licensed vehicles only. While there are some hard core level obstacles in vicinity the DBBB trails are intended and designed for entry level off-roading to provide both a safe and rewarding off road driving experience.
