Roadless?

Recommended Posts

To all of you Oregon riders out there:

You still have time to write to our unlustrious governor and tell him to shove his roadless bill where the sun don't shine. In a nice sort of way,that is. He needs to know that we won't roll over and play dead.

All right here.

http://www.governor.oregon.gov/Gov/GNRO/oregon_forests.shtml

Remind the governer we've burned more acres in Oregon then we've logged. Actually having roads into the forest will help ODF get to and put out fires before they grow too large.

Governor Kulongoski has made clear his intention to keep Oregon’s backcountry

Still, he wants to hear how Oregonians want their roadless lands managed.

• Sections or concepts in the 2001 Rule that should be strengthened

• Adjustments to roadless area boundaries

• Potential conflicts with existing uses within inventoried roadless areas.

In addition, Governor Kulongoski hopes to learn how Oregonians value roadless

they presently use them. The information gathered through the public comment

him prepare the petition, which is due no later than November 13, 2006.

I don't live in OR but find this a very interesting thread. Thanks for pursuing this topic Ryan. I hope OR recreational land users unite and fight to keep their access to our precious public lands open. :thumbsup:
