Off Road and Outdoors: Poison Spyder and The Access Army Team Up!

Poison Spyder and The Access Army Team Up!



NOVEMBER 24, 2009 • BANNING, CA — Poison Spyder Customs has joined forces with the recently formed “Access Army” movement in the fight for recreational access to public lands. In an effort designed as both a fund-raising venture for the Access Army and as a way for members of the movement to show their commitment to the cause, Poison Spyder Customs is producing a limited edition Access Army version of its popular Rocker Knocker and Ricochet Rocker rocker panel protection products for Jeep vehicles.

The Access Army Rocker Knocker or Ricochet Rocker features the Access Army logo CNC laser-cut into the rugged 3/16” plate steel. Access Army Rocker Knockers are available with or without tubular rock sliders. Best of all, Poison Spyder Customs is donating 10% of the purchase price for each set to the Blue Ribbon Coalition, which fights the legal battles for public access. “We’re passionate about this issue,” says Larry McRae, president of Poison Spyder Customs, “access to public lands is what our sport is based on. We’re proud to be a part of the Access Army!”

The Access Army is guided by its Joint Chiefs of Staff, veteran land use advocate Del Albright, who brings a lifetime of experience fighting to maintain public access through such organizations as the Blue Ribbon Coalition and the California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs. The Access Army brings together access advocates from all walks of life, and from across the spectrum of land use organizations, enthusiast associations and clubs. The Access Army seeks to exploit the power of the Internet, its online forums and enthusiast groups, and social networking sites to take the fight for access on the offensive with a proactive, targeted, aggressive campaign for public access to public lands.

Hollister Hills Fun With Friends

I like to go to new places and I was pleasantly surprised when we got the chance to hang out with old and new friends at Hollister Hills OHV area.  It was my first time to the area so I didn't know what to expect.

The weather was perfect with bright blue skies filled with puffy clouds and views galore from the hill tops.  Did I mention the great wheelin to be had there?  It's mostly gullies and trenches but still lots of fun and a great place to test out your suspension and flex capabilities. 

Hollister has a riding area specifically for motorcycles and another for 4 wheelers so they stay out of each others way.  It was really a fun place and I look forward to going again.

New product for the upcoming snowmobile season

For Immediate Release:

Ski Defender Hits the High Mark This Snowmobiling Season

Sandberg Snowmobile Ski Covers rolls out the Ski Defender cover just in time for the 2009/2010 snowmobiling season. Ski Defender covers, proudly made in the United States of America, are designed to protect snowmobile skis while your snowmobile is being stored during the summer and between rides in the winter - a perfect way to protect your skis from the harsh UV rays of the sun and the ever changing climate.

U.S., Canada and Mexico sign Wilderness MOU, What??

Here it is folks!  Sorry, links don't work as I'm not a member of Green Wire.

Copied from Green Wire:

PUBLIC LANDS: U.S., Canada, Mexico sign wilderness agreement

April Reese, E&E reporter

MERIDA, Mexico -- High-ranking U.S., Canadian and Mexican officials signed an agreement here Saturday to collaborate on protecting wilderness across North America.

The memorandum of understanding, signed during the WILD9 international wilderness congress, is the first continental wilderness agreement.

"This agreement will make it easier to exchange successful experiences and facilitate monitoring and the training of human resources, as well as financing projects that will protect and recover wilderness areas," Mexican President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa said Friday in his welcome to the congress, which meets every three to four years.

The agreement, a year and a half in the making, will allow land managers on opposite sides of the border to more easily work together on management challenges and opportunities, regardless of jurisdiction, officials said. For example, federal land managers will no longer be restricted in their collaboration with state or provincial managers across the border.

Mexico's participation in the MOU is part of a multipronged effort to step up wilderness protection at home, said Ernesto Enkerlin-Hoeflich, who heads the Commission for Natural Protected Areas for United Mexican States, a government agency.

The Calderón administration has been pushing for a wilderness law, similar to the one adopted by the United States in 1964, and the new measure has wide support among federal lawmakers in Mexico, he said. Currently, the only wilderness area in Mexico is the El Carmen Wilderness, created by CEMEX Corp. It borders Big Bend National Park in Texas.

"We are coming late, but I'm sure we're going to pick up fast," Enkerlin-Hoeflich said.

Protecting wilderness is especially important now, given the crucial role that intact forests, grasslands and other ecosystems play in sequestering heat-trapping carbon dioxide, noted Sally Collins, director of the U.S. Agriculture Department's new Office of Ecosystem Services and Markets.

Collins' office promotes the nonextractive benefits of natural systems, such as providing clean water, preventing erosion and helping to regulate the Earth's climate. Collins signed the document in place of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, who could not attend the WILD9 meeting.

For its part, the National Park Service plans to bring long-languishing wilderness proposals "off the shelf" and encourage Congress to adopt new wilderness measures, added Jon Jarvis, director of the National Park Service.

Sam Hamilton, head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which manages several wildlife refuges along the U.S.-Mexico border, said enhancing cooperation across national boundaries hopefully will ensure greater connectivity between protected areas.

"Wilderness forms the essential core of protected areas, but wilderness alone will not suffice," Hamilton said. "These areas must be connected."

Hamilton and his co-signers acknowledged that the border fence recently erected along long segments of the U.S.-Mexico border is a hindrance to that connectivity and will pose challenges to achieving the goals of the new agreement. Enkerlin-Hoeflich spoke of Mexico's "deep concern" about what he called "the wall" and expressed hope that the wilderness MOU will focus further attention on the need to create cross-boundary passageways for wildlife.

"We have to make the best of what we've got," Hamilton said.
