Roadless Areas - Off Limits To Sledders?!

Check out the message below from the "Last Refuge Campaign".

Apparently they have already decided that roadless areas are off limts to sledders....

P.S. Sledders, please do stay out of designated Wilderness area. We don't need to give the "extreme green" any legitimate ammo.

P.P.S. Sledders, please take a moment and join the Blue Ribbon Coalition if you haven't already. ( http://www.sharetrails.org )

Re: Roadless Areas - Off Limits To Sledders?!

This is so sad when we have the extremist groups with lots of capital behind them.with the amount of capital these guys have it will always be an up hill battle for us.

They actualy think that we are being miss led by the manufactures which is so sad.

I snowmobile because I like to go out and see nature with my sled and with my sled I am able to see places that I would not be able to see without.And now they want to take away our freedom give me a break.

I like this false statement"motorized mob".Know wonder the public thinks we are out to destroy everything,with the internet it has become easier for them to spread such false claims,but with the internet we can counter attack with truth to dispute their junk science but it is and will always be an up hill battle.

Thanx mdmead keep us updated on the issues like you always have we truly appreciate your efforts,good work mdmead!

Punch Da Throttle and ROOST!!
