Are you one of those people who likes to trek off the beaten path to your favorite fishing hole? Then you might want to sign the petition that Arizona Off-Roaders is circulating.
It seems that legislators and others are complaining in Maricopa County and parts of Pinal County that off-roaders are stirring up too much dust by riding quads, 4x4's, motorcycles, etc. And they want to restrict or close access to many areas on Arizona State Land.
For those of us who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, this news is distressing. It's already getting harder and harder and to find good places away from other people to fish, shoot, ride quads, etc. Now the Arizona State Land Department wants to make it even harder!
If you live in Arizona, I urge you to sign the online petition and spread and word. You don't have have to live in Maricopa or Pinal County to care about this issue. Rulings like this have a way of spreading once they pass they pass in one area.
