Just got this email from JPFreek Adventure Mag:

On Thursday, April 23rd the California Water Quality Control Board is having a public hearing in Rancho Cordova to finalize their decision on closing the Rubicon Trail.

JPFreek Adventure Magazine is asking each of you on behalf of the National Off-Road Association - - who are within driving distance of Sacramento to attend this important public hearing. Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts need to show the Water Board the overwhelming public support to keep the Rubicon Trail open year-round. NORA's goal is to have over (500) OHV enthusiasts present at this public hearing.

This is serious. On April 1st of this year, the United States Forest Service issued a 2-year temporary closure of the very popular Tellico OHV Area in North Carolina. Help Rubicon from turning into a Tellico type situation by showing your support on April 23rd.

Assemblyman Ted Gaines and a representative from Congressman Tom McClintock's office will be in attendance, as well as Off-Road Hall of Famer, Mark A. Smith. Local Sacramento news media will also be covering this historic event.

Please call or email Erin Lara, Member Services Director at NORA to let her know if you are able to attend as we are trying to obtain a head count. She can be reached at (530) 333-1487, ext. 1 or If the Rubicon Trail is closed, even temporarily this go-around, this will not only set a precedent for the permanent future of the Rubicon but also every other publicly-owned land access point throughout the United States. THIS IS CRITICAL!

Meeting Place and Time

Location - 11020 Sun Center Drive # 200; Rancho Cordova, CA 95670

Date & Time - Thursday, April 23rd @ 12:30 PM

So whats the deal with this pirate 4x4 save the Rubicon thing? It seems sketchy. It sounds like it says that you'll still use other ORV trails in the area if they close the Rubicon.
