The Painter Mine is located in the heart of the rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, the nation’s second largest wilderness area.
During Monday night's General Member Meeting, Bill &
Patty Davis reported on their recent experience with the
Forest Service's new test website.
As you may already know, the ability to actually make reservations on the government mandated website will launch on March 1st, however there are serious concerns about the process thus far.
It is highly recommended that every boat owner & club member get on the website to set up a live account PRIOR to the rush on March 1st.
Also, it is imperative & has been highly encouraged by Carmen, who is the Forest Service representative that the Davis' have been consulting with, that we as a club voice our opinions, concerns & comments.
Carmen has requested this be done via email so that she may have documentation in writing to present to legislators that the old system "wasn't broken". Her email address is: email@example.com
Bob Hays also had a comment & suggestion to all, that when you go onto the website, make sure you do not link to float boats, as they have a lottery system.

evaluating travel routes across the field office. Due to
the expanse of the field office, two planning zones have
been established -- North and South. The first zone to be
analyzed is identified as the “North Zone Travel
Management Plan”. This area can generally be described as
all BLM-managed lands within Clearwater, Latah, Nez Perce
and Lewis counties and continuing south into Idaho County
to include Slate Creek on the Lower Salmon River. The
North Zone has been subdivided into three travel
management units -- Craig Mountain, Clearwater and the
