Shared From Cal4Wheels, Jeff Blewitt:

"CARNEGIE LAWSUIT DECISION –
On November 21, 2019, the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Joaquin, Stockton Branch, rendered a jury verdict in favor of managed OHV recreation at the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA).

The jury’s verdict found the California Department of Parks and Recreation Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division’s environmentally sound OHV program – for both casual trail use and permitted motorized events – at Carnegie SVRA did not substantially interfere with the Connolly Ranch’s use or enjoyment of its land."

This is a HUGE VICTORY! This will be challenged but its important... to everyone that worked on this, all over California and the US- THANK YOU!

The names are too numerous to name but particular gratitude to CORVA and Cal4Wheel... and from those of us at Silicon Valley OffRoad- we express the heartiest of thanks!!!!

A quick note- as California pushes to close OHV parks for various environmental concerns, the question remains- why with all the rhetoric are they still behind? Is OHV really a problem or just a scapegoat?

MUST SEE STUDY | The economic impact of the offroad community in Arizona

"The study shows a shocking result of just over 1.8 billion dollars spent in 2017 and 370 million dollars in state and federal tax revenue generated. An estimated 10% is from non-resident visitors. The study also reports an estimated 1.6 million offroad enthusiasts in Arizona. 43% UTV, 18% Jeep or SUV, 15% ATV, and 14% dirtbike. This study also shows the creation of 22,000 jobs and over 1.6 billion in vehicle expenses."

Off-highway vehicle registration from other states will no longer be honored in 2020

"In past years, Utah has had standing agreements with some other states to honor each other’s OHV registration. This meant that visitors to Utah who had OHVs registered in states like Nevada were not required to obtain a non-resident user permit or pay a non-resident fee.
In the 2019 General Session, the Utah Legislature passed H.B. 105, which removed this option from future use. This means that starting on Jan. 1, 2020, visitors wanting to ride in Utah using a machine registered in another state will be required to purchase a non-resident OHV permit. These permits may be purchased in-person from an approved vendor or ordered online."

From CORVA, our dear friends:

It is with great sadness that today we say goodbye to our friend, our off road family member and eternal advocate, Ed Waldheim. Ed has fought many battles on behalf of our community, and has done more in the fight for land use than any other individual. Ed was the backbone of many organizations, and his dedication to service was like no other. His knowledge and passion are irreplaceable. To say it would take an army to replace him, would be an understatement. The legacy Ed leaves in our trust is enormous, and we, the people who comprise CORVA, promise to always honor this legacy. We will do this by continuing Ed’s work and doing our very best to push forward as he always has. We will never stop fighting! Thank you Ed for all you have done, you will be dearly missed!

Big Money Is Building A New Kind Of National Park In The Great Plains

"A privately funded, nonprofit organization is creating a 3.2 million-acre wildlife sanctuary — American Prairie Reserve — in northeastern Montana, an area long known as cattle country.
But the reserve is facing fierce opposition from many locals because to build it, the organization is slowly purchasing ranches from willing sellers, phasing out the cows and replacing them with wild bison. Those private properties are then stitched together with vast tracts of neighboring public lands to create one giant, rewilded prairie. The organization has purchased close to 30 properties so far, but it needs at least 50 more."

In Montana, a former Silicon Valley entrepreneur wants to create a massive, privately funded public park. Some ranchers oppose the American Prairie Reserve and say they can better conserve the land.

“When managing O&C timberland, the BLM must ensure that the land continues to produce timber,” Leon wrote in the 18-page ruling. BLM stands for Bureau of Land Management, which manages the O&C lands in question."
