    4 Wheeling on BLM Land in New Mexico

    This message is to inform Wayalifers of important upcoming events and has been coordinated with Wayalife to assure compliance with forum rules.

    The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is scheduling a series of meetings across the country with invitations extended to BLM personnel and to off-road vehicle enthusiasts. New Mexico is the next state on the list and meetings, as described in this posting, will take place from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the dates and locations listed below:

    Albuquerque: February 2, 2016, Holiday Inn & Suites, 5050 Jefferson St NE, 87109
    Las Cruces: February 3, 2016, Holiday Inn Express, 2635 S Valley Drive, 88005
    Roswell: February 4, 2016, Holiday Inn Express, 2300 N Main St, 88201
    Hernandez: February 16, 2016, Hernandez Center, 19418 A US Highway 84 87537
    Farmington: February 17, 2016, Red Lion Hotel, 700 Scott Ave, 87401

    The overall goal (from our perspective) of these meetings is to keep what access we have and, hopefully, gain BLM support to grant even more access. We'd, obviously, want to convince BLM reps that we are responsible parties that follow the rules (such as Tread Lightly) and do what we can to convince others to do so as well. One of the things that motivated me to suggest this posting on the Wayalife forum was a response I got from a NOHVCC rep that they had had trouble getting 4WD folks engaged in a state where they had already done this (they did get good Motorcycle and UTV participation).

    Around Albuquerque, BLM is almost the only game in town when it comes to hard/extreme trails. This is true for other areas of the state (and many other areas of the country) as well. This may be our last/best opportunity to advance our positions relative to 4 wheeling in a collaborative environment before Vehicle Travel Management Plans are cast in government concrete. All Wayalifers that are concerned about access to BLM lands are highly encouraged to attend one or more of these meetings.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
