I was reading through Fox news this afternoon and saw this article. Thought I would pass it on to you guys, but many of you out West are probably dealing with this right now. Its pretty frightening when you consider the prospect that environmentalists can practically get a whole recreation area closed because of one stupid plant...Those of you who don't think it can happen in your areas are wrong, we're seeing the beginning of it here in Florida, and it scares me. What next, they'll want to protect the sand, because we're harming it as well. Our tax dollars go to pay for this land. We should be able to use it in a responsible manner, hell I'd even be willing to buy an off road permit if they wanted me to. But c'mon, closing this land is just going to encourage people to do things illegally, I know its wrong but its a fact. Bottom line get involved some way, send a letter or email to your local representative and let them know how you feel.
