They Are Killing Our Access

In my travels around the country helping folks to get organized and keep trails open, I have seen too much of the above problems. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of great clubs that are doing just fine.  But I've seen my share of egos and personalities driving folks away from organized recreation.  There are ways to fix that.

KEEPING TRASH OFF OUR TRAILS

We have to educate them.  And yes, we have to pick up behind them.  Unfortunately. But until we educate them all and get our lands and waterways FREE of trash and garbage, we will need to be vigilant in our efforts at trash pick-up!

New Year; New Country; New Hope


2015 - The Year of Better Times for All

by Del Albright

I consider myself a top shelf, full blown, get 'r done Patriot and love this country -- albeit a few times these past few years I've had to remind myself to stand proud in spite of the antics of some of our political leaders.  But no matter, I still wish all a Happy New Year and a new year of hope and better times. 

I've been shot at in three countries and will never surrender my love of our freedoms.  I hope you will stand with me in 2015 and make some change that really counts.

This landuse update comes to you from Del Albright, Outdoor Recreation Advocate

January 2013 Highlighted Landuse Issues/Links from Team Albright

1.     Johnson Valley, the Hammers – PLEASE sign the petition needing 1000 signatures a day, to request the White House to deny any request by the 29 Palms Marine Base to use land from Johnson Valley OHV area for base expansion.  We love the Marines; but they don’t need our OHV area.   Go here to sign:  http://ultra4racing.com/featured/1000-signatures-a-day-needed-to-help-save-the-hammers/.

2.     Oregon – comments needed on Oregon Dunes Designated Routes Project DEIS, right away.  Best coastal dunes around are in jeopardy and need our help.  Your letter can make a difference.  BRC has a sample letter here: https://www.sharetrails.org/alerts/2013/01/15/oregon--comments-needed-on-oregon-dunes-10c-designated-routes-project-deis.

Rumbling of Thunder

Rumbling of Thunder - A Whole New Sound in the Off-road World

The over-paid, seldom-right weather man spoke with such animation and excitement that you couldn’t help but get taken in by his rambling analysis of the on-coming weather pattern (from outer space).  But he had me from hello when he mentioned the "rumbling of thunder” and how we would be hearing it for some time to come.  I realized at that moment he had just described the new sound I’ve been hearing in the off-road skies – thunder!

Thunder is the sound made by lightning, ranging from a sharp loud crack, to a long, low rumble.  I don’t think there is any one reason for this “storm,” but rather a culmination of people getting fed up with unnecessary closures and restrictions.  Can you see the lightning and hear the thunder?
