I don't know you, so I can't call B.S., and emailed Rick Cooper (BLM) for confirmation on this issue. As I stated above I have been told by the Hollister office any plated vehicle, but so we can move beyond "he said, she said" I'll post up Rick's response when it comes (hopefully before Friday... ).
