    Since I signed a few minutes ago, signatures have been added at a rate of about 1 per minute! That's pretty amazing. Doing what I can to keep them coming... Hope you will do the same. Thanks in advance if you do. If not, well, I'll still respect you as a human being, lol

    Done. Thanks for letting me/us know about it. Only been there twice, but I've got a number of friends that ride there as well.

    Our national defense is top priority, if they need the land for military, fine. But free up wilderness areas for motorized recreation. Wilderness areas don't do the country any good, except keep the tree huggers happy, and they are generally useless.

    I signed it. I've been riding quads out in that area for (off and on) 15 years or so. Great riding. I normally ride near Cougar Buttes/Anderson dry lake/Soggy dry lake however last weekend my wife and I camped in the hills past North Anderson Dry lake then rode around the far-northern portion of the OHV area and a little on roads which skirt the wilderness area. There are some good trails out there, we did ~65 miles and didn't even scratch the surface of things to see out there. We'll be going back soon.



    I also suggest joining CORVA and the Blue Ribbon Coalition. Those groups are literally out on the front lines trying to keep our public lands open for us! Plus you'll get a cool decal for your truck LOL

    +1 just signed. Although i have never been there i signed it because we are losing our riding places all over the United States and we have to do everything we can to stop it. The tree huggers are trying to out us everywhere they go because we are ruining their precious natural forest by riding these polluting fossil fuel eating machines down trails. Its not ok for us to ride in these places but its fine for their mountain bikes and horses to stomp tracks through all while driving their trucks and suv's to get there and be green. Anyway if you havent signed it you should take a few minutes and do a good deed!

    The issue isn't a lack of patriotism. I'm about as supportive of our military as anyone gets, but even I have had enough.



    We live in the largest county in the continental U.S. (San Bernardino county is larger than any of our 9 smallest states) most of it already occupied by government in some capacity.



    We figger we're already doing more than our fair share. I didn't move to Big Open to end up confined to my own backyard and nearly every day we find ourselves embroiled in some new encroachment. At least the government is honest enough to just take it over. "Environmental" causes use it as a place to test their legal tactics, then if successful they employ them in YOUR state, town or county. Never mind my motorcycle, my horse isn't even welcome in much of this county for "environmental" reasons, and unwelcome in the balance of it simply because guys will aim M-16's at us.



    The rationale for the land grab is logistics. Currently troops are shuttled and convoyed to and from Camp Pendleton to 29 Palms for various training exercises, which is neccessary but somewhat wasteful of resources.



    Once claimed these lands have nearly always proven to remain in the hands of government, off limits, forever. Do you think for one minute that they'll relinquish an inch of Pendleton in the bargain? Not a chance.



    It's a pretty hot issue around here and will be difficult to reconcile satisfactorily. Admittedly those of us directly affected by it have a bigger stake in this than just the closure of a riding area, but I thought some background would help. Signing the petition provides much needed ammunition in the big picture. It matters.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Thanks for signing, people. Last time I checked the petition, it looked as though it would easily meet the required 25k threshold. Im about check again. Anyway I hope it really does some good because I want california(and the u.s.) to remain a great land for off road recreational opportunities for as long as possible!
    KJ, just KJ, ok.

    Just checked again. 2k sigs needed by 02/14/2013. Tell your friends about this and ask them to tell theirs. Would be horrible if it ended up a couple hundred short...
