Im not going to get too specific but there was a missunderstanding of what was going to take place today at the courthouse.
It was thought today was our day to meet with the judge.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED
We met with the F.F. officers our lawyer and a federal attorney. There was a short talk about how the officers justified why they gave there tickets, and then we were given options.
1. Pay the ticket
2. Take the case in front of a federal judge.
We are taking the case in front of the judge.
THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE SUPPORT AND WE WILL KEEP YOU ALL POSTED ON WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

yes can be a bomb. But yep going to see the judge or magistrate in NOV. We need support to to be there. We need at least most everyone that was on the trail ride to make an appearance if they can and as well as anyone else that can show up as supporting members in the court room. Need to pack the court room so they have no place to sit down. Keep in mind this has national meaning and can use all the support as possible.

November what?
How can I rearrange my schedule to be there if I don't know when to be there?

A crowd will do nothing to improve the merits of the case.
The case will win or loose based upon the facts.


Contacting your Tourism Board, FEDERAL Representatives and FEDERAL Senators and getting them riled up could get the NFS to change their policy at the National level.

No two tracks will surely reduce tourism.
No access for full-sized vehicles also reduces access for fishing, hunting, mushroom picking, rock-hounding, geocashing, etc.

I'm sure the local Chambers of Tourism and Commerce would be interested to hear of these new restrictions.

I hope you guys win. It sounds to me like those rangers were wrong. Hopefully a clear understanding of where people can and cannot be comes from this.I think they should give you guys a little respect for going out there and cleaning up other peoples trash.

Anyone who was on this trail ride is welcome to come along as a witness. The more information we can give the Judge about that night the better.
Send me a PM if you would like details.
Thanks everyone
