Hi Tacoma World,
This is one of the most popular forums of vehicle enthusiasts that I frequent and I thought I would start a thread here to inform a country-wide audience.
Ocotillo Wells is one of the few places left in California that still allows open riding to Offroad enthusiasts. The area hosts Hundereds of Thousands of visitors each year and designates 85,000 Acres to be used specifically for Offroad Vehicle Use. The area has been used as such for almost 40 years and many families have grown here.
Now, environmental groups such as PEER (Public Employees for Environmental Action), and DPC (Desert Protective Council) are seeking legal action that would limit Offroaders' ability to use this land for its intended purpose.
Please help fight the action and give the Offroad community the reputation that it deserves, don't let these groups paint the picture that We as a whole are reckless and destructive. I fear that with no action or voice, the park could be limited to the size of what Pismo Beach is now.
