Poison Spyder Customs is back under new ownership

Poison Spyder Customs Under New Ownership
Banning, CA: Larry and Cheri McRae are the proud new owners and caretakers of Poison Spyder Customs. The McRae’s including daughter Cortney, are excited about this new venture and Larry commented, “We, like so many, have known and respected the Slays for years. We know how hard they’ve worked and sacrificed to build Poison Spyder Customs into what it is today. "

"When we heard the Slays were simplifying their life and dropping the Poison Spyder Customs product line, we had mixed emotions. We were excited for our friends in the 4 wheeling community who decided to travel down a different path, but were disappointed that the Poison Spyder products would no longer be available. Cheri and I wondered if we could do something about it. Clifton and I had a meeting at the SEMA Show and the rest, as they say, is history, added McRae.”

Land Use Planning; Bruce Babbitt; and Hunting

My BlueRibbon partner, Don Amador, has posted up a great blog on the public process, Bruce Babbit, and hunting. Actually, its' more than that, but for sure you can get a lot out of this quick read with some good links.

Don links to a fish and game aritcle about getting involved in the management of hunting. The guy who wrote that article is Ken Mayer, a very good friend of mine. Ken is now the Director of Wildlife for Nevada. Ken knows government and in his piece he explains what we can do to ensure we have a say with the USFS and BLM.

It's really important that we are part of the early on "scoping" process -- where we can get our ideas in the game right up front, and hopefully see our ideas end up as the process spits out a plan.

Theft Prevention -- An Ounce of Prevention vs. a Pound of Pain

My friend, Tom Severin from Badlands Offroad Adventures and 4x4training.com has some sage advice here, as well as some links to cool theft-prevention products.

"Remember the good old days when you could leave your bike outside overnight? Or your front door unlocked while you ran an errand? (Yes, I know I’m dating myself.) Sadly, those days are long gone. Theft is now a part of our lives. But we can minimize its occurrence. Four wheelers (and all motorized recreationists) already know that their vehicles are quite attractive to the wrong crowd. Yet it’s good to be reminded occasionally of the simple steps you can take to protect yourself and your property. "
