another thing you can do....that I BEG you to do:

Is get the word out to as many people as possible. E-mail all your friends, post on bulletin boards, talk to people...

Once we get the press release done it will be easier becuase you will have something to post, until then, just get the word out.

STRESS to people that the time has come for the ENTIRE OHV community to all come together to fight for our trails. Most people ONLY fight for thier backyards. We cannot do that anymore. Comments from people who have NEVER been to Tellico (me included) weigh just as much as a regular on those trails.

Im not quite sure exactly what you are after, but here goes anyhow.

I started going to Tellico in the mid 90s although I had know about it as early as back around 75 or 76 when I first began driving. I knew people who were 4 wheeling at Tellico back then, but I never had a rig back then so I didnt go. I have been there many times, and have done the annual cleanups and the SFWDA workdays several times over the years, and have noticed how each time there were more 4X4 folks and fewer trout folks volunteering. Also, the trash on the trails has diminished tremendously.

I have seen the hard work put into Tellico by the SFWDA guys, especially Gunnar Byrd and his construction company.

I believe that closing or restricting the Tellico OHV area is an effort thats going to backfire on those who want it to happen. The people who go to Tellico to wheel are gonna wheel somewhere, and I think we are going to have some serious land conflicts as a result of closure of the OHV area.

Its my National Forest, too, and I should have a say in how its used. The National Forests are not supposed to be a wilderness, they are supposed to be an agricultural asset to be used by the Nation. That why the USFS is under the Dept of Agriculture, instead of the Dept of Interior like the Park Service. The USFS website states "The Forest Service manages public lands in national forests ..." Note that it said PUBLIC LANDS, not private, limited access, restricted to certain groups etc.

Its my national forest, too.

That's exactly what we're looking for. Please save this and post it on May 7th from 4-9 PM Eastern Standard Time... but I guess that would be more like 3-8 PM CST

You can get an idea from the JV rally thread here:


https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=664629

We want pictures, stories, show how your FAMILY recreates in Tellico!

The goal is to show the powers that be how important Tellico is to the OHV community.

Remember that this thread will last for YEARS as a testament to how important the area is to us.

Is there a site that accepts funds?
I'd like to do something as a private party beyond what TT's can provide.

Used to be the saying that "as CA goes, so does the rest" for quite some time we have been fighting the same battles in different locations.
I think it's time to make a dent, a big one.

For the most part I am an FSJ specific vendor, although I love to dabble.

I encourage all vendors to step up and support the cause.
At my age I'll probably never see Tellico.
I hope your children do and I hope their children do also.

Not sure if I should post, but I'm in as a sponsor!

My donation will be made through my new time eater; www.diffsonly.com. It's new and still not completely setup yet. But my goal is to have it diffs only; so crate axles, lockers, axles, hubs, and yokes is about it. I may put brake parts in there, but not sure...

That's right!! He is and if you'll notice he's on the other side of the country. That's the kind of support we need right now. The entire community needs to come together Wayne has definitely stepped it up for us.

I will be announcing all the vendor/sponsors shortly (day or two). I really hope you guys show the same kind of support for them as they have for this. I believe you'll see what I mean in do time.

The press release is coming together and will be released soon. Keep checking in and watching to see what comes next.

Hey, it's good to see you on here. Thanks for spreading the word around. I miss it to. Last time I hit Slickrock was Dixie Run and I took the left side because it was getting late. I had every plan to go back up the right side later

The offical rally thread is up in land-use

https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=676594

That is not the final-final press release. We may tweak it a little more.

We will also post the list of vendors helping out in the beginning of that thread in the next coupla days.
