Thanks to a tip from NWGUN.com reader Bryan, I just read about a road closure plan for Northeastern Oregon (Wallowa-Whitman National Forest) that affects nearly 4,000 miles of forest service roads.
This kind of closure is *extremely* impacting for anyone like myself that enjoys outdoor activities involving motor vehicles. My favorite place to camp is on forest service roads, and I also enjoy dirtbiking and other activities (like outdoor shooting) that require motor vehicle access.
If you want to read more about this issue, please check out the Oregonian article here.
I strongly encourage NWGUN readers in Oregon to get involved in any way you can to put a stop to this plan. Let’s work together to keep our land accessible (we do pay taxes to keep these areas maintained and staffed, so we should be able to enjoy them, right?).
Do you have land-use advocacy ideas? Please share.
