RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I am a active member of NOMAC ( Northern Oregon Motorcycle and ATV Club ) and our mission statement is:
We are a non-profit organization made up of individuals with a love of the outdoors and a passion for Off Highway Vehicles. We are committed to the preservation, enjoyment and sustainment of our riding areas and keeping our sport available for generations to come.
I have recently received a copy of the Forest Service decision on Mt Hood National Forest OHV riding areas and I am very disappointed in the Travel Management plan as it is described. It has removed my ability to enjoy the Mt National Forest as an OHV enthusiast and will destroy our forest areas in the future.
The plan has condensed OHV users to and area which will over crowd and become an unsafe area for usage. The Quoted staging area and camping facilities will be inadequate and will be imposable to bring my RV into and use.
I feel the language used in the Travel Management plan is vague at best and clarification will be nesccessary along with additional periods of comment and adjustment will be needed before any implimtation of the plan.The Law enforcement issues alone are going to be impossable to keep up with as an individual.
I would like to extend an invitation to any one as a supporter of OHV usage to help us in our fight for improved and safe riding areas in the Mt Hood National Forest where we plan on supporting forest preservation as well as safety and training for the OHV community
