Last night while thumbing through the latest issue of National Geographic Magazine, I stumbled across an article entitled Going Public which is about public lands out west under BLM control. Towards the end of the article there is a paragraph concerning ORV use on public lands. Of course it was written by someone with an anti-ORV outlook, but there are several mistakes. They tend to glorify the mountain bikers and hikers around Slickrock, near Moab Utah, because they have to "put up" with ORV'rs. Now, if I'm not mistaken, the trails around Slickrock were originally laid out by dirt bike riders. This article clearly puts a negative spin on ORV use on public land. I'm going to send a letter to the editor in order to educate the readers about the mistakes in this article. I would also like to include some information about the ORV groups in the area that participate in trail construction/maintenance. If anyone knows this information, please post it in this thread or e-mail it to me.

Thank you for your time.
