Haha ... Nothing like being beaten over the head with your own words ...

Thanks for reminding me about that stuff ... no one likes a scofflaw ...

PS: they never did change the signs to make it clear that only 4x4s are allowed ...
But I'll stop riding there and consider myself lucky that I never got a ticket ...

I consider this civil disobedience.

I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government.

Holy shit gentlemen, I just got back from Clear Creek and found it to be far from open. I went the completely lawful route this time (I was also hunting with several firearms in the truck, so I wanted to be as legal as possible) and actually got a permit to enter the asbestos zone. I would've even paid the 5 bucks if the iron ranger had been set up on the side we entered from. (New Idira) I called the Hollister office and asked if it might be possible to obtain a permit over the counter. The lady obliged me, although don't expect this level of service, especially on a weekend. Anyway long story short I had a great time cruising around, but was shocked at the amount of closed roads out there. Basically everything that was open before is still open and everything that wasn't is closed, plus they're now expecting you to get that permit. I had expected the single track to be closed, but they've also closed most of the roads. I didn't see any rangers, but there was some activity at the decon site. I also found a new BLM issued Clear Creek map that only showed the roads that are currently open. Anyway, just passing on my findings today. Hope y'all are having fun, and from the pics it looks like you are .

Cheers!

Call the Bakersfield BLM office and ask them about the "no motorcycles" sign. I did years ago and recall them saying they meant dirt bikes (unplated).

I don't think they can single out a type of highway vehicle. If they actually do I'm going to borrow a friend's Jeep and...

Heck, the Hollister BLM leases these hills out to sheepherders to run their
flocks through in the spring time. How are 10,000+ sheep less of an
environmental impact than a handful of street legal motorcycles using
the existing access roads?


It's all about the money, and I'll bet those sheep herding contract
payments end up in Rick Coopers bank account.

Hey BAARCers, and woodsxr & Calioutdoors247,

We're having a crew at Hollister Hills this weekend for AJ's 14th birthday
(no presents, says Dad ...) We've been doing this for a few years,
and it is always a fun event ...



The crew!

BAARCers always welcome!

I'm planning on being at the Madrone campground Friday afternoon ...
It is the last campground past the store ... last fire rings on the left
before the turn-around, if we can get 'em ...

We should have folks there through Sunday ...
show-up-or-don't, plenty-of-room-for-everybody style ...
we'll have people appearing when they can all weekend ...
I guess they charge $10 for camping ...

You'd be welcome, Calioutdoors247 ...
I think woodsxr and Mikengrace have been threatening to show up ...

Plus, I'm pretty sure it's legal for us to ride there!

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn
