I hope that people in Utah understand just how negatively this would impact the economy. They better make a stand now.

The environmentalists never give up, take take take. They'd all be happy if the great beauty this country offers was only viewable by foot or in pictures.

Glad I'll be able to get in there and see it before they close it off.

I have never been to Moab. It has always been a dream of mine and the wife and I were planning a possible trip next year, which has been postponed about 3-4 years due to an overseas assignment. I pray nothing comes of it, but I better get there before all of our land becomes postcards of places we were once able to enjoy.

My favorite line in the article...

"Conservationists say residents need to understand it’s for their own good."

How about "conservationists" understand that "residents" know what's good for them. :naw:

Cannot take pictures without a permit. Oh and the flash you use disturbs the migrating army ants and your camera uses fossil fuel to charge.

I'm really hoping that this is one of those issues that actually never gets any real traction (see what I did there) in the legislature but crazier things have happened.

This is ridiculous at best!! I wish to someday go to Moab and see these things and these full retards are ruining things for everyone! How in the world have they managed to get so much power in today's society?!

Sick. I'm getting fed up with these n'er-do-wells dictating how we should live our lives.

Anyone heard about the power of FEMA to take peoples personnal vehicles away in a national emergency? One good way to keep the sheep on the roads is to take away off-road vehicles...can't get around the barricades.

You could just change the word "conservationists" to communists, and it would have about the same meaning. "Let us tell you what's best for you."

Idiots think it's a good idea, until there economy in that area takes a massive hit. Take away its biggest revenue and see how well they fair then. Stupid tree huggers.

So let me get this straight, if I'm a disabled vet and can't access the great outdoors because some conservationist closed the areas to Jeep and ATV/UTV use then I must buy a postcard? Or, because of the Americans With Disabilities Act, can't I just tie a conservationist to the hood and call it good? Permit accepted?

I like your idea!

I was lucky enough to hit up Moab in a rented Rubicon last August. Actually my wife and I got married in the desert there. I seriously hope they don't follow through with this. We hope to relocate to that area someday. We were impressed with how clean the trails were with no supervision. It appears the off road community appreciates nature just as much as the tree huggers. I'd argue hikers walking on the crust will do more damage than tires on sandstone.

I couldn't believe the nerve of these people when I read this line. "We are going to do everything we can to destroy the tourism industry so many of you rely on to feed your families. But we're doing this for you're own good, really" I almost admire the ballsiness of that statement. But I don't. Unbelievable.
