This includes were you can go, cattle and sheep grazing, construction, mineral exploration, air and water pollution, land disturbance, species protection and habitat conservation.

The Western Mojave is considered the area from China lake in the north, 29 palms in the south, the SBDNO Mtns to the west to Fort Irwin in the east.

Pat, did you go to the meeting in Victorville this evening? ( 8/21) How did it go? What was discussed? How many people showed up and how many were off-roaders?

I went to the meeting in Victorville, there were about 40 plus people, mainly two wheeled users. It is not an actual meeting with the BLM. It is a meeting set up by District 37 to inform people of what will happen if the WEMO plan is accepted in it's present form, and to urge people to write letters to the BLM to comment on WEMO.

District 37 is suing the BLM to have changes made to the plan. There are about 22 different items that we need to comment on to change the WEMO plan for "our" (the motorized off road user) and the areas benefit.

Route designation, open areas, and habitat conservation plans were discussed mainly.

I urge poeple to attend the remaining Informative meetings, and send your comments to the BLM.

How about a boiler plate letter that everyone can put their contact information into, sign and send?
