    Two alerts in one day! Please read the message below and, please RESPOND. I know it seems like there is always a letter to write or call to make, but stay with us, it's worth it. If we all unite together (all user groups) we can overcome the radical enviros, and help preserve the activities we all love. It's worth it.


    The BLM has published its EA (Environmental Assessment) for the RR4W Jeep Safari 5-year permit, which expires at the end of this year. Whether you are an EJS fan or not, it is imperative that we all write to the BLM supporting Alternative A, which basically grants the permit as requested. (Alternate B would deny several routes, including Pritchett and others, and Alt. C would deny the permit completely.) The EA for this permit is not only for EJS and Labor Day Campout, but for all other motorized, non-competitive events that require permits on EJS trails.

    Even though the EA does not effect casual motorized use (i.e. use that does not require a permit), the denial or restriction of the EJS permit would set disastrous precedent for Moab trails. Once "permitted" use is banned, how long do you think it would be before some of these trails are closed to ALL motorized use?

    PLEASE go to www.blm.gov/utah/moab and download the document (its a PDF file), read through it, and WRITE A LETTER TO THE BLM SUPPORTING ALTERNATIVE A. The public comment period runs through October 31.

    Moab Public Land Use

    A very easy and quick way for a person to speak out for a wonderful recreation area. Come on everyone stand up and be counted. We are lucky in the West to have Public Lands for Recreation. If you don't believe the impact they have on mountain communities in Colorado just come to BV and start counting Out of State licsences and see for yourself. When those people come to Colorado they spend a lot of money which in turn keeps the small mountain towns alive and well. MAKE YOUR VOICE COUNT, or don't cry when Public Land Use is a thing of the past.
