I was keying one that one statement you made in your first posting "the wilderness is for everyone, including 4-wheelers". In 1952 the Sierra Club published a list of objectives. The second on the list was to ban all vehicles from public land. During the RARE I and RARE II agreements in the 1980s the Sierra Club said that as a result of those agreements,there was an adequate quantity of land set aside in wilderness. Then the so called Desert Protection Act which locked up 9.5 m acres in wilderness. Now the Boxer bill. The SC will not stop until they have achieved their goal of locking up all public land. The only way to stop that baloney is for the majority of the population to stand up and demand that common sense and science determine land utilization.
