I saw this thread on another forum and thought I'd pass it along for all of you to sign!

__________________________________________________ ________
We were talking to one of the rangers in Wyoming and said how much we loved camping in some of the 'just off the road' sites and also how nice it was to stay a few days in each national forest.

We were floored when he showed us the proposed change for 2009!

All roads except one main road are to be closed and gated, no camping except at the maintained campgrounds. we asked if this was a new wilderness designationa nd he said "No, it is to be in effect NATIONWIDE!"

This will be voted on before summer 2008.

What they do plan to keep open, will all have a FEE tied to the use of camping, boating, game/fuel wood retrieval even day use areas.

I contacted the US Ag and asked about the National Forest changes, the woman, Julie , was very helpful and said there is a petition online to have this turned into a public comment period item.

It is organized by Shelley & Ken Moore of Heber/Overgaard, AZ

http://access-advocates.org/petition_01/

Loosing dry camping and boon docking on OUR public lands is too horrible to think about. please sign the petition and pass it along to everyone you know that camps...

Thanks
Pat

Online petitions are meaningless. There is no way to verify the signatees. The best option is actually writing your elected representatives.

Agree with Ray. Writing your congressman will have more of an impact than 1000 petitions.

I believe contacting our congressmen will help as well as this petitions which we have to put our email addys and home addys on so they can be verified. I am doing both.

If you need the contact info. for your elected representatives, Congress.org has a convenient search box located on the upper left hand corner of their website. Just enter your zip code, and it will give you the contact info. for your elected federal, state, and local officials!

When you copy a post form "another forum" it would be helpful if you at least note that the original post was wrong.

Their is no action to totally close federal lands.

This is how bogus rumors are spread.
