Are there any members in the SoCal area that frequent Johnson/Lucerne Valley's?

If so what do you knw about te possible/probable closure of the 180k acres of OHV land in JV?

If not to bring you up to speed...The 29 Palms USMC base is planning on expanding their current training facility by capturing what is now the Johnson Valley OHV land consisting of Soggy Dry Lake and everything east up to the current USMC base border. North...not sure how much however, it consists of enough so as not to give us ANY land to use.

There are a few alternatives in place the biggest is for them NOT to take any land the next which is A3 (Ithink) which is moving east/Northeast which will move them towards highway 40 and "in the direction of" Needles.

Impact of this closure will cause numerous situations
1) Fall in business support by visitors (gas, markets, fastfood, restaraunts, etc)
2) Pressure of more people gooing onto other OHV lands (El Mirage, Cal City, etc. More people = More riders resulting more safety issues, less places to park/camp, etc
3) More people/riders per acre = More land pressure causing more concerns of "greenies" of land "abuse"...etc.

I apologize if this has already been beaten however, being new here and a concerned recreactionist I thought I'd bring it up!
