“ I'm impressed by Martin's tenacity and his ability to do what it takes to convince the powers that be to cooperate. Without his abilities and perseverance there are a variety of trails which would otherwise have been lost. We all need to be thankful and supportive of the efforts of the volunteer crews of the Friends of BWCA Trails, the Border Route Trail Association, and the Kekekabic Trail Club for their work in keeping our BWCA Wilderness trails open and available to the public. I hope to see you out on one of our trails this coming season either hiking or better yet on a trail maintenance trip. ”
