great day.

need to find a few places to stage from for the desert when rowher is abruptly closed though!!!

My buddy went up there today and said there were rangers at the gates. Not sure if they were at EVERY entrance, but I think it would have been a bad idea to try to find a way in.

Every gate was closed, sierra, san fran, boquet, etc, i tried, all closed.

Talked to a Ranger at the gate, he said it should be opened up by tuesday or wednesday, said certain parts of certain trails are washed away, and they are working on them now, also said lots of people have been getting hurt and they have lots of lawsuits going on, they are considering maybe shutting it down for a while to figure out how to deal with lawsuits.

lawsuits?? how to deal with them??
yeah.
you rode your OHV and got hurt. it's your own damn fault.

and there's signs everywhere stating that riding is dangerous. no one made you ride. you chose to ride.

fuck. this pisses me off.

I was looking forward to riding there this week.

Who knows guys maybe there's just some fucking huge flooding going on up there and they just want to control it before a whole bunch of bikes go up there and tear the place up seems like the most logical explanation and you know half of the extra rangers that they bring into watch all the gates know fuck all about what's going on....

I'm sure in a few days this'll all blow over although Klammer says that they are going to do a trail survey sometime next week and they need to get everybody out there and ride the trail so the trails do stay open anybody needs information about it pm Klammer

I rode on the 26th, a couple days before the rain. There were 5 or 6 rangers out, including one on a bobcat. They were doing maintenance on the main road to staging area 1. They were all friendly and smiles and waving. They didn't stop me, but they did have a father and son trucking in stopped for a spark test. It was pretty busy up there.

I think we all need to chill and wait for the water damage to be repaired.
