Default moab boycott

These businesses all signed a letter to Utah's governer urging him to limit or eliminate access to Utah's back-country to off-highway vehicles. Please do not give them your money, they do not want you in Moab.

Copied from Rocky Mountain Extreme:

In light of some recent events (namely the anti-access letter to Gov. Huntsman in the Trib and DesNews) it has been suggested that it's time to use the weight of the off-road community to bring some pressure onto certain companies. And I couldn’t agree more.
I believe that the first portion of the list should focus on Moab. Why? Because Moab's main industry is tourism, with 4-wheeling being one of the cornerstones of that industry. If a significant number of 4-wheelers begin to boycott certain restaurants, gas stations and shops in Moab, these companies will begin to feel the pressure and will either have to change their tune or downsize and even close.
The beginnings of this list come from companies that signed the mentioned anti-access letter. They are an identifiable problem that must be dealt with. This list should not be populated with companies that people simply dislike, or that seem to be a little bit green. This list should be targeted at companies that are actively part of the problem. If they redeem themselves by showing a marked improvement in their attitudes towards access to public lands, then they will be removed from the list.
In addition, we should not only boycott these companies, we need to write a letter to each of them expressing our discontent and inform them that we will no longer be using their services.
