"Thank you, Dick, for taking the time to show me the progressive and positive works that are being done out there. I am impressed every time I visit the site and come back with only positive things to share with other government agencies and the public. Keep up the good work." Wade Anderson, Regional Manager, Southern Interior East Region, Britich Columbia
"It was phenomenal watching and listening to your presentation. The way you and Joani 'tag teamed' was right on the mark for emphasizing and reemphasizing all the important information. In my mind, you missed nothing. Very inspiring not only from a business professional standpoint, but also very cool to see a husband and wife team work so well together. Well done!" Adrian van Nieuwkerk, Okanagan Trail Riders Association Executive.
"The design work was exceptional and you are a master of your art." The trail work was "excellent in design and construction. The trails were exciting to ride which is exactly what I wanted to see, however the work far exceeded my expectation in signage, bollards, trail hardening, and deactivation." "The signing is excellent." "I have great respect for RecConnect and complete faith in you." John Glaspie, District Recreation Officer, British Columbia Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and the Arts.

"Montana partnered with NOHVCC in May to host this same trails design, construction and maintenance workshop. I absolutely recommend taking the time to attend and make sure the right people in your state have the resources to attend as well. The Montana workshop was very well organized and rich in content. The presenters (both NOHVCC staff and RecConnect) are experts in their field and are able to effectively teach their trail design, construction and maintenance techniques in this workshop setting (even in torrential rain!)."
