For all So Cal guys: BLM is now redefining the Draft Desert Plan agreed to by all parties about 20 years ago. Open areas are now limited use and limited use areas are now closed, per Ridgecrest office. They just closed area between Cuddyback Dry Lake and Kramer Junction east of Hwy 395. Damn! Allegedly for study due to affects of vehicle traffic on tortoises. They are closing land any time green wackos threaten lawsuits because DC does not give them a budget to litigate. We are losing riding acreage at a dizzying pace. Please help by writing your Congressman and Senators in all 50 states. California is only the first step. If you are already helping, thank you. Our right to ride is in the balance, and right now we are losing.
