Default MOAB is under threat of closure

Saw this on the United 4WDA Website:


Moab Closures - AYL episode on ABC TV

Moab has become the next hot-spot of environmental worry as environmental groups and off-highway vehicle organizations face off in a land access war with the Bureau of Land Management intrenched firmly in the middle.

As the Comment period continues through November 30th, users can contact their BLM offices, and the Moab Field Officce in particular, to tell them which of the four proposed plans best reflect recreation in the moab area...

If YOU have been to Moab... You know what is at stake here.

If you never have made the trip to Moab... well you may never be able to see and experience what we are talking about! It will be closed

Possibly repeat of phittie's post...but a little expounding information also.

Found this so far; on rockymountainextreme.com :

The BLM's Moab Field Office has released their Draft Resource Management Plan (DRMP) and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The combined document is available online.

This document will determine how recreation is permitted in the Moab area for the next 20+ years.

Here is a link to there "Dear Reader" page:


This page gives a brief overview of the 4 alteratives:


This page is a more in depth look at the alteratives (1-good, 2 very bad, 3-ok, 4-good (In my humble Jeeping-orientated opinion.))


WAY more depth about the alternatives


PLEASE BE FAMILIAR WITH THE ALTERNATIVES AND MAKE YOUR OPINION KNOWN BY COMMENTING! Comment period ends November 30.

Ive submitted my suggestions and comments. I REALLY URGE EVERYONE TO READ THE PROPOSAL FIRST. Your comments are expected to identify specific sections of the proposal.

I gotta be honest, I support proposal D and recommended modifications to make it more environment friendly. Alternative C is the one they WANT to use...but it's way too restrictive. Alternative C, in my opinion, is a preclude to getting more lands shut down by forcing OHV users of ALL kinds to over use the lands we are allowed to wheel on and then later show the overuse of the lands to get them shut down. I believe this is the same tactic being used in the ElDorado Nat'l Forest and other areas. Which there is a petition for by the way.
