Hey people.  Just wanted to share about CORVA who is running the defense for the Carnegie expansion.

 

They say it best: "CORVA is a varied group of outdoor recreationalists who are extremely active in promoting the positive aspects of vehicular access on public lands and protecting that right."  Membership is $30 a year which puts you on their mailing and emailing list and you get a nice sticker - got to start putting these on my truck. I've been a member for about 2 months and so far I've only received their quarterly newsletter.  I personally am not a fan of politics, but since getting involved with CORVA and finding out how environmental groups, corporations and communities in general are being fed mis-information about off-roaders and our impact on the land, it's nice to see there is actually a way to fight back.

 

I'm sure this isn't for everyone, just wanted to share in case anyone else was interested in joining.

Alyson,

 

I didn't realize that they support rock-hounding.  I believe that we should leave nothing but foot (and tire) prints, take nothing but photos.  That alone would make me think twice about supporting them fully.  Yes I know that no political 'party' (lobbying group, club, etc.) will ever represent your views 100%, but that is quite a big one for me.

Rock-hounding is apparently legal on BLM property.

My sister is a rock-hounder and apparently there are rules and regulations about which areas you can take rocks from.  I don't get why she likes it nor does she understand why I like off-roading, but to each their own.

To which CORVA supports only what is legal, they also support Tread Lightly.

Erin,

 

Lots of things are legal .... doesn't mean I have to like them.  Fox hunting is legal in many places, I don't like that.

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

You don't have to convince me. I don't like any hunting whatsoever and I don't eat land dwelling animals either.

The off-road and 4x4 communities have limited support and I don't want to see our trails and OHV parks close.

I'm not political by any means, and I'm not pushing an agenda, but for what it's worth, I'd rather have an organization supporting at least some of things I support rather than no support at all.

I'm not political by any means....

"I don't eat land dwelling animals" and "I'm not political"

 

I don't think I ever have seen these two phrases in one post.  Erin, you made me laugh as you always can.  And I know those statements to be true as I know you....it just seems so funny to see them together...
