placing lots of signs on various parts of the Bruce and Conservation Areas locally. I thought it would be a fun game to see who could identify the most.

There's one off snake rd at the Bruce as you head uphill into grindstone area. Has been the last few years.

I hate to be the downer here, but I really, really advise against posting signs for any event, no matter how cool and worthy, in the precious Dundas Conservation area or any conservation area. It's just not the right thing to do. In the end, Storm the Trent is a commercial endeavor; there have to be better ways to promote the event than having signs posted jarringly and out of context in these settings. I hope they come down as quickly and mysteriously as they went up.

Sorry for taking a stand on your log, Hammer.

I should correct myself as I know Sean is usually very anal about the signage that he puts out and I am pretty sure he doesn't actually put them in the Conservation Areas. Usually a telephone pole on a regulary travelled road nearby an entrance. Similar to GranFondo. I can also bet that Sean would remove the signage almost hours after the event as he is that diligent and respectful of these areas.

Totally agree. I keep finding the corporate logo for some nameless evil creamsicle conglomerate in the weirdest places in the forest. But i lay vengeful waste to those little four sided orange and white triangle thingies and their glowing robot masters whenever I see them. I smite 'em good, Trav.

They're as plain as a wide, groomed trail in the snowy northern wilds. Only a total weenie couldn't find that sort of thing. But maybe if that enterprising young fellow from storm got there first there'd be a sign.
