    Somewhat inaccurate overview of the history of the case and how it has been resolved, dispite the efforts of The Irrelevent Modern Acronym folks:

    Here's an explanation of why it matters, because The Irrelevent Modern Acronym folks were headed straight for our national cemetaries next:

    The second link is a religious website, scroll to the lower paragraphs if that offendeth thee, pilgrim.



    The cross sat unmolested since the '30's offending no one. Originally erected as one man's tribute to a fallen friend, the site served as the location for local Easter Sunrise services since the horse and buggy days prior being gobbled up in the Mojave Preserve debaucle. It has been subsequently destroyed by forces aligned with The Irrelevent Modern Acronym folks and will now require reconstruction, but at long last this pointless and unjustifiable exercise is over.



    Why this matters to those of us who ride is that most of the more creative methods of gaining land closures that affect us nationally are spawned, tested and either passed or defeated as a result of the efforts of my neighbors right here in the largest county in the U.S.



    In other words, we be on it. Constantly.



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

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Finally some common sense...
    “One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”

    ― Edward Abbey
