As you probably already know, I don’t often take up causes here on this blog. I prefer to keep politics off this site so I can focus on the main purpose for this site. But every now and again I like to bring certain topics to light that impact recreational vehicle owners and those who use our public lands. This petition is one such cause. The US National Forest service wants to close down the only public area that has access to the Verde River. The Verde River is a very popular location in Arizona’s Tonto National Forest and is used by both locals and tourists alike. If you have used this area or are planning to do so in the future or you’re just a concerned citizen, please take a few minutes to read the preamble and sign the petition. Doing so will help voice your opinion on the matter and might make a difference to help keep our public lands open for public use. Thanks. Mello Mike.
