    I know some of you do not live in southern California. But this is very important and we can use all the help we can get ASAP!

    There has been an on-going fight for years to close LUCERNE VALLEY and the famous area and special event known as "King of the Hammers"
    It is also a spot we use for desert racing and desert runs.
    Please check this link and make the phone calls to your local politicians. Once its gone it will never come back. If you care, do your part to help.

    Thanks

    BLM will have to by law redigsinate the surrounding areas aroind Barstow and Lucerne Valley from "open access" to "restricted access" closing off many areas and trails. Simply because there will not ne enough leftover land to support open access.

    All land in AZ is private or military/government owned pretty much, no open desert, except for the BLM land south of the 8 West of Tucson to the CA border

    This^^^^^^
    Im not getting political, but Liberal Environmentalists do not want us to have fun in the desert.
    I learned this at a very early age in the 90's when I joined the ASA (American Sand association) fighting to keep Glamis open because the milk vedge plant. All we can do is show your voice
