QUIT LETTING OUR FEDERAL RESOURCES BURN!

"HOPE" IS NOT A METHOD FOR FIGHTING WILD FIRES!

Let's tell our federal land managers and politicians to stop "letting it burn!"

DO IT OUTSIDE


GET OUTSIDE AND RE-CREATE YOURSELF

And Do the Right Thing

By Del Albright

Summer time is get outside time, and that also means being thankful for the freedoms we have in this great country.  I try to never take anything for granted; especially time I get to spend outdoors, whether hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, taking pictures, hiking, biking, or just sitting on something besides my desk chair looking at something besides my computer screen or mobile device.

Teach your kids the same values.  They are the future.  And be SURE to join and support those groups and organizations that help keep your hobby alive and well, like BlueRibbon Coalition in my case, along with your state and regional associations.

Inauguration Day 2017 for Off-roaders

Inauguration Day 2017 for Off-roaders

Today January 20th, 2017, Inauguration Day marks a new era for us off-roading/four wheeling types.  But please allow me a slight caveat. 

While we may celebrate for our guns, our freedoms and our trails, DO NOT think the battles are over.  First off, the new Administration will be pretty darn busy with a TON of issues that need fixing.  Our trail closures and losses, I'm sorry to say, won't be fixed in the first 100 days or the first year.
