LANDUSE VIKING DEBUTS IN COLOR FOR NEW BOOK

"Brock" the Landuse Viking "shielding public lands from closure" in color!

Ryan Williams of RTW Graphics created our new landuse book character, "Brock" as we sometimes call him.  First he was in black and white; but here he is in color.  What do you think, is he cool or what?

He will be on our book cover (released March 1st at TDS Desert Safari).  But look closely at what he is protecting and how he is doing it.  There are a lot of messages here.

Our landuse Viking represents what most organized recreation groups are doing these days, especially national umbrella groups like the BlueRibbon Coalition. Be sure to JOIN as your first step in helping this bad boy do his job.  He totally represents what Del & Stacie stand for in their fight as Team Albright.

RESERVE A COPY NOW as supplies of the first run will be limited.  The book is FREE because it's supported by advertising businesses. You pay for some shipping and handling, and a signed copy is yours when released. 
thanks,
Del & Stacie

CA PARKS OHV MESS HITS SAC BEE BY DON AMADOR


DON AMADOR CHAMPIONS OHV IN CA FEATURED IN SAC BEE

Governor Brown's firing of Daphne Greene in the State Parks OHV Division is featured by my access partner, Don Amador in the Sacramento Bee.  Daphne is a huge example of a GOOD bureaucrat working to help us keep our trails open and setting an example nationwide for other OHV programs.

Don blogs and talks about how all trail decisions are political decisions, and this decision to fire Daphne was totally WRONG.  Please read and send a letter in to support getting her BACK in the job.

MASTER-PULL PARTNERS WITH TEAM 4405 FOR KOH RACE



 Master-Pull partners with Team 4405 for the 2012 King of the Hammers
The Master-Pull 4405 Team will continue to “Race for Access”

Master-Pull, the leader in synthetic ropes and recovery equipment, has partnered with Travis Carpenter’s 4405 Land-Use Team for the 2012 King of the Hammers. The 2012 King of the Hammers will be the third running of the race for Travis Carpenter, who has qualified through the 2011 Ultra4 series.

The team’s mission of “racing for access” will not only continue, but will be further enhanced by several future projects and campaigns through this new partnership. One example of this is the upcoming “4405 Master-Pull Race-A-Thon” which will once again be held by the team at the King of the Hammers race. In 2012 the 4405 Master-Pull Race-A-Thon will have a focus on saving Johnson Valley and the Hammers trail system.

According to driver Travis Carpenter, “I am very excited to be racing under the Master-Pull banner. This is not a just sponsorship where we will only be running Master-Pull stickers on the 4405, this is a true partnership. We will actually be working with Master-Pull to help insure that public lands remain open to the public. In addition to the 4405 Master-Pull Race-A-Thon, we also have another combined project that will be unveiled by the end of the year.”

Alex Riedo of Master-Pull states, “In that the proper use of recovery equipment on the trail is essential in minimizing resource damage, the partnership with Travis Carpenter’s 4405 Land-Use Team is a fitting match for Master-Pull. Responsible off-roading is more than just picking up trash on public lands. Reducing your impact on a trail by winching out instead of throttling out can help keep trails open and reduce the maintenance costs by public land managers.”

Master-Pull develops and supplies superior recovery equipment for use in a wide range of applications, from recreational off-road to heavy duty military and industrial use. The ropes used for these applications represent the greatest in synthetic rope technology, which ensures Master-Pull’s products are the most reliable in the field. These products include synthetic winch lines, kinetic tow ropes and recovery kits.

JOHSON VALLEY (HAMMERS) LESS ATTRACTIVE TO NEW MARINES?

POST WAR MARINES MORE "MARINE" FOCUSED AND LESS LAND-BASED?

My access partner, Don Amador ran a blog about the new Marines and how they are more focused on ocean/marine issues in the future. So maybe they will leave Johnson Valley alone because like we've said all along, THEY DON'T NEED IT.

Check out his blog with more links and see how we might be winning this battle here:

Utah Land Use News and TAP Tour II

UTAH LANDUSE NEWS AND Winter on the Rocks UPDATE
with TAP Tour II


Brought to you by Del & Stacie Albright, Access Advocates, BlueRibbon Coalition
December 2, 2012

BlueRibbon Coalition will be represented by Del & Stacie Albright at “Winter on the Rocks” (WOTR) put on by the Utah 4x4 Club and Canyon Country 4x4 Club. BRC works closely with these clubs and others, as well as the Utah 4Wheel Drive Association. We are proud and honored to be part of this year’s activities and look forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces. Of course, we are all about saving trails and keeping the sport alive, so if you spend time jaw-jacking with us, you can figure that will be the topic of choice.

WOTR will be the first stop of our Trail Access Partnership Tour (TAPT) II. TAP Tours are where businesses join us on landuse adventures bringing off-road businesses together with customers, all in the spirit of saving trails and keep backcountry motorsports alive. Please find more on the TAP Tour here at http://www.trailaccesstour.com/.

We want to help raise more raffle prizes for the event so perhaps we can call on you to reach out (again) to any businesses you know of and send them this link and a plea for goodies. We will be doing the same from our end. Sponsor Packages: http://www.winterontherocks.com/?page_id=377

The event made a nice donation to BRC last year as part of our partnership in fighting for all trails in Utah. We hope to make that donation even bigger this year (with your help). THIS is the year to make the fight for Utah even bigger and badder than it’s even been. 2012 is election year and YOU KNOW what that means. We have to make changes at the highest levels in order to keep our freedoms alive and well in the backcountry.

Stacie and I are able to get to WOTR and be BRC this year because of the help of THREE awesome businesses who support us a lot in our landuse fights: T&T Customs, Nemesis Industries and MetalCloak. Please NOTE! These are three businesses with some market share competition for similar products, BUT they set that all aside to support landuse and access. Say thanks when you when you see them.
On the team,
Del & Stacie Albright
