    That the closing has been moved to December.. perhaps the city folks are rethinking about closing it..
    I was told by a friend of mine who lives up that way.. He said it would have too much of an impact on the economy.. hence the delay in closing it..

    If it's remaining open.. we need to plan a off-roading trip/clean-up trip... make the townspeople happy..
    Who'd be up for a trip?

    not too sure on the delay, but from what i read the law takes effect sept 1, 2003 and will be inforced jan 1, 2004.



    Sec. 90.002. OPERATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE IN PROTECTED
    FRESHWATER AREA PROHIBITED. Except as provided by Section 90.003
    or 90.004, a person may not operate a motor vehicle in or on a
    protected freshwater area on or after January 1, 2004.

    doesn't it have to be so wide or so deep, which in effect, doesn't include the slab /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    my wife and I talked about it.. we can shoot for the last weekend in August.. we're tied up til then..
    And the truck is just about done..
    I'd like to get a cleanup organized.. advertise it in the local newspaper.. maybe the postitive publicity will help ease tensions.. ya never know..
    So... last weekend in August...
    Who's in? I believe the better the turnout.. the better it will all be.. enough heads up time?

    I made it a point upon leaving the Slab after each wheeling trip to pick up trash for about 2 hours. I always wound up picking up the most trash at the entrance were all the people swam and stuff. Most of the time the places in the "back" were far cleaner than the front...And we are the ones that will no longer have access to the slab while all the polluters can still go out there and polute....go figure!!! I definately want to go on one last trip to the slab...if I can get my junk rolling again!
