***RESPONSE NEEDED BY APRIL 15, 2009!!!!***

As some of you most likely know, due to past incidents near the train tracks in Glamis, the rail road companies want to close of access to Wash Road. This road leads to a MOST of the camping available in Glamis... We are looking for OLD SCHOOL OFF ROADERS that have used the road prior to 1972... please read the article below for more details!!

Dear Fellow aSa Member,
The Union Pacific Railroad has indicated that they will close the Wash Road along the eastern border of the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area to public travel on May 31, 2009.
While the road is on Union Pacific property, it has been used to gain access to popular camping areas for many decades. It is the ASA's position that the publics' use of Wash Road on Union Pacific property for more than 45 years establishes a public easement. We have informed UP that we are willing to take legal action as necessary.
Civil Code section 1009 prevents such easements after March 1972. However, if the ASA can document that the public enjoyed use of the road for at least five years before March 1972, where the landowner (Union Pacific) neither objected nor granted permission, we may be able to escape the restrictions of Civil Code section 1009.
Here is how you can help:
If you used Wash Road from at least March 1967 to March 1972, please provide a narrative stating your family and friends' personal use of the Road. Download an affidavit form, put your narrative on the form, and have it notarized. (Auto Club will notarize for free as will some banks).
If available, include photos that demonstrate the use. Put contact info on back.
If available, include Newspaper or other sources of date certain information. Put contact info on back.
Include any other evidence you think may be appropriate.
Mail to:Vince Brunassoc/o American Sand AssociationPO Box 1872 Canyon Country, CA 91386
The deadline for this is April 15th.


Thank you for your continued support to keep our OHV's open and accessible

Just FYI- I am a notary also. (One of my many hats...lol) I work in Temecula and live in Hemet. If anyone needs to have this document notarized and is in my area, I would be willing to do it free of charge. PM me if you need my services.
