Perhaps you don't know just how close BLM came to ripping out your roadwork after the unpermitted bridge and repairs were constructed? It took an influential land-use advocacy group to beg the BLM to bring in their out-of-state engineering crew to certify the safety of the work before commensing with the demolition. This was the result of heavy-duty and heated head-to-head negotiating that came very, very close to going the otherway.
Of course, once the engineers studied the roadwork, they indeed certified it as safe, but BLM was under no obligation to do this, and they would be under no obligation to do so again.
Remember that your road repairs were performed when the area was under management by the current bureaucracy's predicessors. The current decision-holders, Villalobos, Pool, and Hansen are far, far less likely to cooperate with rogue roadbuilders, as they are already working on ways to get this work done legally. It's only been a few months since bozo broke the road -- we went without the road for a much longer time before your roadwork took place. Time goes by fast, so just hang in there.
Lastly, your challenge to others under the guise of your being "true desert rat" is reminiscent of decades of right-wing red-baiting. If I understand you correctly, you're saying that a true desert rat does whatever he pleases and everyone else be damned! This is not like the desert rats I know. It's my land, too, you know...
But if you DO decided to rebuild without a permit, do a better job this time so it doesn't collapse again in ten years! JUST KIDDING! Honest! Put the knife down, I'm just kidding! Here, have another Keystone...
