    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

    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

    one of the list of businesses i mentioned in my letter I faxed. Its going to hit the economy of the already shitty high desert. the open desert is the only good thing about the high desert and they are taking that away...
