    There are a few companies on the list that surprised me. Sad to see any OHV getting shut down.
    Tellico in Murphy, NC fell due to trout unlimited...well not completely. It was a great place to go hit the trails and sad to say I only had a chance to go twice . The years of off-road use and lack of trail maintenance and silt fence to prevent run off in trout streams was what killed it...so I heard. These anti-OHV groups watch for our mistakes and act on them, we have to be cautious and fix any problems that we see before they can act.
    Off-road groups starting doing work to fix the problem at Tellico but it was to late.

    Sorry to ask this, but is Patagonia the company selling offroad tires? Someone just told me about those tires this week. That would seem crazy for them to be against OHV recreation.

    Because of where @skunked and I live, I believe he is talking about the clothing company Patagonia that is also in California. They are very active in this type of activism.

    Yep, the clothing company. Heavily worn by the yuppies and tree huggers.

    I have a cabin in joshua tree ca. A few years after buying cabin, thieves broke in and stole all my tools, everything in the house, my trailer, and my sandrail that was parked inside a locked shipping container.

    There’s a community center about 60-80 acres away- can see it from my backyard. I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself and see if anyone had ideas of places to look for my stuff, tips for the sheriffs, and/ or information.

    I was dead wrong about finding help or helpful people in there. I’m going to have to research the acronym, but something like “wemo” rings a bell... biggest group of ignorant, angry, finger waving, holy than thou, “it’s ok for my horse to shit in your front yard, but you can’t ride that dirt bike around here”, bossy, know it all liberals That I have ever met.

    “All off-roaders are criminals”
    “At least now that your sandrail has been stolen, you won’t be able to destroy the desert with it”
    “You have sanctioned areas 100 miles from here that you can use your Offroad vehicle, but only certain times of the year- go there with all the other off-roaders”
    “We have banded together to force the BLM to stop you from using your Offroad vehicle on BLM land”
    “It must have been off-roaders that broke into your cabin”


    I especially liked their claims that;
    “Your Offroad vehicle is destroying the dirt road that we pay to keep graded- the only reason the dirt roads around here keep getting bumpy is all the dirt bikes and atvs!”
    I tried to argue that their jalopy ford escort with blown out struts and mismatched tires was probably worse... and that I pay just as much or more tax to use that area and county maintained roads as they do... and that I actually HAD smoothed out the local roads a few times free of charge when I had a reason to rent a tractor... how many of you complainers have actually done something about it? How about adapting to the environment you are trying to retire in as apposed to emposing your crazy thoughts and will upon the general population?

    My family still has land that was homesteaded in the area back when the government was still giving it away... my friends and family have been using the area for generations for everything from buggy rides, to hiking, to just hanging out and enjoying the stars. Nobody has a sympathetic ear to anything other than their own exclusionary, self centered, and closed minded agendas. They were one step away from shouting me a racist and chasing me out of there with pitch forks.

    Whatever the actual name of the organization is... They meet at the copper mountain mesa community center, and a bunch of them are retired or on disability and are proud of the fact that they can fight to remove your freedoms while you are hard at work trying to put food on the table and pay your taxes. Lovely to have neighbors?!

    Also, not far from there... MVDLT has an office in yucca valley. Mojave valley desert land trust.

    As far as I’m aware, it’s a lobbyist group and they buy private land to specifically disallow off-roading, and seek grants of previously public lands so that they can “protect them”... spend a lot of money on anti off-roading politics. Lovely. Lovely to have neighbors?!

    @scouthead that is one if the reasons why lots of the locals around western Colorado don't like it when people move here from CA. They want to bring those ideas here.
    Sucks for you, for the crap that has happened.

    No, the tire name brand is Milestar and Patagonia is just the name of that tire style.

    So many things that I don't know...

    I bought Toyos because of the local dealer who does a good amount for the trucks at work.

    Yeah... and as much as i like it here, i cant stand the politics. i have less and less family here every year and the light at the end of the tunnel gets a little further away every day... i may be forced to relocate at some point, and i hope that if i do, there is still somewhere to go where people reapect family values and vote/ govern with a few brain cells and a good sense of reasoning. Also Hope the rest of the rats jumping off this ship havent already so Stained the idea of "californian" that its impossible to make friends and gain peoples trust.
