Good afternoon all, as a long time stalker of both the ACA website and forums, I have finally decided to create a forum account
Last weekend, I decided to do a short tour from the Dayton, OH area down to the southern part of the state. It wasn't a huge multi-century run or anything, as I am still building up, both physically, mentally, and financially for those, but I ran across an issue when I attempted to crash for the night at one of the state parks.
Granted, this was during a holiday weekend, thus it was to be expected (and planned for), but I didn't take this into account in the planning stage of this trip. The issue is that Ohio does not have a "No bicyclist turned away" policy that I have read about. In light of this, I would like to submit a proposal to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to get something into effect that so this would not happen to other individuals who may tour across the state.
I have attached the proposal to this thread, and hopefully, I can get a few suggestions on the next steps.
edit: I have corrected the name of the deparment from Ohio Department of National Resources to the correct, Ohio Department of Natural Resources. I love MS Word's autocorrect feature!
