something like a hunting/fishing license with offroad vehicle stuff
just dont have it ran thru the DMV
Oh and we already have this and it is run through the DMV. OHV under a certain weight, iirc 1300lbs. require a tag. The proceeds from this tag go to supporting leo's in green and white trucks that now work closely with the County Sheriff, even working off the same repeater.
In my neck of the woods the forest trails are tight and twisty strewn with baby heads, ruts and nasty green puddles. We don't get the Hotrod UTV's like Flecker gets, he has long go fast dirt roads, completely different forest.
Pretty sure The travel management plan will never make it into the Tonto. The Ranchers need access to their allotments, the Miners need access to their claims. The local communities need the revenue to support the people.
It boils down to the money, banging your head on the steering wheel to change the government will give you a headache.
Stopped in the Mesa Ranger Station last week to pick up a National Forest Pass.
I asked the Ranger, Has the travel management plan been implemented in the Tonto, no. Do you have a current map of the freshly signed trails, last map 2015. leos and special groups (sar) have accurate up to date maps.
Can I go wherever I want in the Tonto Forest? answer yes.
