The 1st of what? As in New Year's Day? That ain't gonna happen for me, unless I want to spend the rest of '08 in divorce court. Can we do it on a non-holiday weekend?

Help

Below is cut from KTMTALK, BLM in Utah is doing pretty much similar stuff as Ocala.

We want to voice as much of an opinion, or just awareness of the OHV community, so if you could cut and paste and send an email, every little bit helps.

I've highlighted, in red, the parts you need to use for an email, thanks.


---------------------
Everyone, BLM and others are detirmined to get areas shut down to us. Please read below.

"A Wilderness Study Area by any other name... still stinks!"

The Bureau of Land Management in Utah is Ground Zero for an epic land use battle that could close tens of millions of acres of BLM lands across the West.
The issue concerns the question of whether or not the BLM can create millions of acres of NEW Wilderness Study Areas across the West.
There will be a series of key public comment periods regarding this issue, but perhaps one of the most important deadlines is THIS THURSDAY, December 13, 2007. That is the deadline for the Price Field Office's Resource Management Plan revision.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
This issue extends beyond Utah BLM lands. Utah is Ground Zero on an effort to change the law to allow for an ongoing, never ending expansion of Wilderness Study Areas across all BLM lands.
Fortunately for you, dear BRC Action Alert subscriber, making effective comments on this issue is extremely easy. There are four simple comments below that you need to make. Simply cut and paste these into an email and click send.
As always, if you have any questions or need any help, please call.
Brian Hawthorne 208-237-1008 ext 102
Ric Foster 208-237-1008 ext 107
BlueRibbon Coalition Public Lands Department
SITUATION:
In a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS), Utah BLM's Price Field Office is proposing to designate somewhere in the neighborhood of one million acres of new Wilderness Study Areas. "Isn't that illegal?" You ask? Yes, it is, but BLM says it's legal because these WSAs aren't "WSAs," they are actually "Non-WSA lands with wilderness characteristics." But you asks; "aren't they managed the same as WSAs?" Exactly!
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Send the BLM a quick email with the four comments below.
Send your email comment letter to:
Bureau of Land Management, Price Field Office, 125 South 600 West, Price, Utah, 84501

E-Mail: UT_Pr_Comments@blm.gov
IMPORTANT: Put "Comments on Price RMP SEIS" in the subject line and be certain to include your name and address. A return email address is NOT sufficient! (BLM often discards "anonymous" email comments.)
Dear Price BLM,
I would like to make the following comments on the Price Field Office SEIS:
1) I believe the BLM is establishing new WSAs without the authority to do so. Calling a new WSA by a different name does not make it legal.
2) Please disclose the difference in management prescriptions between "non WSA lands with wilderness characteristics" and WSAs in the FEIS.
3) The 1999 inventory found lands that contain extensive OHV trails to have "wilderness characteristics." If the presence of OHV use did not impact the presence or absence of "wilderness characteristics," then by what rationale is the BLM proposing to significantly reduce OHV trails in these areas?
4) The SEIS is utilizing the Utah BLM 1999 statewide wilderness re-inventory. This inventory was based on criteria that were not available for public comment and review. As an OHV user who will be directly affected by your decision, regulations say I should have a chance to review and comment on such criteria.
YOUR NAME
YOUR ADDRESS

Email sent, thanks for posting that Chris. It should have its own thread.

Paste it up or I will!

I'll do a letter as well. Good find, ChrisE

Fleas- I have a set of cheap gear for sale on my Farklefest...(L) generic helmet, gloves, knee guards, roost guard. $49 bucks but if I can hand deliver to the OHV parking lot, the Flea Finger Discount gets it all for $25.

There is a real nice pair of size 12 Fox Proformas there as well that I am selling for my friend.

Hijack, bump, and shameless plug....

You probably posted these before, but what size is the gear? Thanks.

Looking foward to it Alan.

This weekend is calling for cold and rain. I will probably take a ride tomorrow and come down to ONF the following weekend. Surely some of you will be up for a ride by then. I will try to take some pics, heading East up the old railway this time, why not its two blocks from the house.

OK so it looks like everyone is bailing this weekend. Probably for the best anyway, we should limit our excursions during hunting season. You see the nasty looks we got out there last time?

I'll try and ride on the 22nd. Inlaws will be in town and I'll need a break.

When I bailed early last time I stopped to look @ the map and a hunter pulled beside me bitched at me about hunting season and said the Wardens were looking for some guys on motorcycles. Thought for a minute we going to shoot it out. Don't know who he was talking about???
