This is really important, this is only one step in our newest Land Use dilemma in California:

The State Waterboard is trying to gain control of all of our Trails and how the Forest Service manages them. On top of the closures we have endured in Travel Management from the USFS and BLM we will now have to contend with Water board Actions on our Trails.

This affidavit was used during the 2009 Water board action against the Rubicon and was very effective in preventing it's closure by the Water board.

We need to do this now for the entire State.

Thank you,


CA folks..DO THIS NOW!

If you wheel in CA you NEED to do this. Not only that, you NEED to pass this on and get more people to do it. (Actually, even if you don't wheel and just want to access to dirt roads in CA in Prius, you need to do this)

Not gunna bore you with all the details, but here's the jist of it: What happened on the Rubicon with the water board may now happen on all forest roads. They want to use waterboard rules and regulations to shut us off our land. Before you start making all the CA posts, don't worry, this is coming your way soon too.

This takes a little more than the normal effort, but here's the directions:

1. Download this affidavit:

2. Print it and sign it if it applies to you. (that is, if you travel on dirt roads in CA. Actually print one for each family member. We need numbers)

3. Send it to Amy Granat who will deliver all of them for us to the water board.

You can do do that one of three ways: (this is the PITA part)

1. Mail it to PO box 298, Clarksburg CA 95612
2. Scan it after you sign it and e-mail it to:
3. Fax it to 509-275-4744

I can't stress how important this is. Go Nike and JUST DO IT.


Kurt, your resident land-use A-hole.

Is this limited to CA residents? Technically I do wheel in CA almost yearly :)

It is - but it's not like you are putting your address on it :lol:

Speedy and I went to the Nor Cal Rock Races today and collected 108 signatures. :D

Next weekend we will be at Slickrock and then at the CalRocs competition at Donner. The Following weekend we will be at Donner again for the We Rock competition.

When this happened on the Rubicon, we collected over 700 signatures. For this one we need 7000. So if you are from California, spread this around.

In the next week we will be formulating comments for everyone to send in.

I really appreciate the help.

That's what counts then :lol:

Thanks for all your hard work on this as always. 7000 signatures is going to take a lot of work so please, everyone get the word out.
