Post Joined the Blue Ribbon Coalition
After reading a recent article about another group trying to close National Forest Roads I decided to put my money where my mouth is and take steps toward taking a stand.
Joined the Blue Ribbon Coalition yesterday. They have a decent payment plan for those interested in a lifetime membership. I just went with the one year for now.
Take a look at the membership of this group, vs some of the big "environmental" groups out there. We are under-represented. It's actually baffling to me as I see so many forum posts from people like us complaining about loss of access.
I agree that there needs to be a balance between those who want peace and quiet and those who want to drive 4x4's, ATV's, etc... However most of these anti-access groups really don't want anyone, especially those with motorized vehicles up there.
If you are already an active member of a group or are attending the meetings, KUDOS to you. For the rest of you, I challenge you to put your money where your mouth is and protect our access to our land, the land that our tax dollars, permits, etc... pay for.
Furthermore, I think we need to follow the issues more closely and always send our comments and thoughts to the government, even if the area isn't in our backyard.
If you are interested in the BRC.
