  1. Archaeology bombshell: Gold looted from Aztecs by Spanish conqueror discovered GOLD looted from the Aztecs some 500 years ago was found to have been stolen by famous Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes, archaeologists have revealed. https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1227789/archaeology-news-aztec-discovery-hernan-cortes-spain-mexico
  2. Scientists analysing a meteorite have discovered the oldest material known to exist on Earth. They found dust grains within the space rock - which fell to Earth in the 1960s - that are as much as 7.5 billion years old. The oldest of the dust grains were formed in stars that roared to life long before our Solar System was born. https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-51099609
  3. Is that where you shoot up all the old bottles? From 600 yards away?
  4. IMHO, the next roads they close should be the ones Bob uses. He'll just have to walk. Nothing personal, just some good old what comes around goes around.
  5. Here is the latest "official" comment submitted: https://cara.ecosystem-management.org/Public/DownloadCommentFile?dmdId=FSPLT3_5217127&project=48210
  6. Sorry I missed out on all this.
  7. I think we've all seen how they close "unauthorized" roads, and they make the sole determination as to what roads are "authorized". Many of the "unauthorized" roads were in existence -- and even on maps -- long before the FS or the BLM deemed them to be "unauthorized". It's all arbitrary and capricious and every new wave of bureaucrats wants to exercise their authority.
  8. Hi Luke. I pretty much said what I wanted to say in my first post. Then, of course, good old bob stuck his nose in my face for having an opinion, mimicked me and wanted to debate. We all have opinions on this matter. I think George Carlin pretty much sums up my thoughts on this matter but what really really matters is what the USFS does after reading all the input from the public. There is still time to chime in with your opinion but most likely the USFS will ignore the public input and do what the liberal activists and their donors want and the Wile E Coyote cartoon will continue. Like I said in my original post, I'm all for fire control. I am not in favor of spending one dime for saving critters that don't exist and I see no point in closing access roads on public lands.
  9. That's one way to do it -- FECON. And then we can all watch as noxious invasive species like bromus tectorum take over and create more of a fire hazard then was there originally. https://www.nazinvasiveplants.org/cheatgrass
  10. Exactly, and this is what they want to do: Improve approximately 150 miles of existing non-system roads and construct approximately 350 miles of temporary roads for haul access; decommission when treatments are completed. Relocate and reconstruct existing open roads adversely affecting water quality and natural resources, or of concern to human safety. Mechanically thin trees and/or implement prescribed fire on approximately 952,330 acres. o Mechanically thin trees and implement prescribed fire on approximately 1,260 acres in the Long Valley Experimental Forest (in coordination with the Rocky Mountain Research Station). Implement prescribed fire alone on approximately 45,290 acres. Mechanically thin and/or implement prescribed fire on approximately 68,360 acres of Mexican spotted owl (MSO) protected activity centers (PACs), approximately 128,800 acres of MSO recovery habitat, and approximately 500,940 acres of northern goshawk habitat. Mechanically thin trees and/or implement prescribed fire to restore approximately 40,760 acres of grasslands and meadows (includes 21,550 acres of grassland cover type). Conduct facilitative operations (thin and/or burn) on up to 157,270 acres of non-target cover types to support treatments in target cover types. Planting, burning, and other activities to encourage reforestation on approximately 69,360 acres of understocked areas that were previously forested. Restore hydrologic function and vegetation on approximately 9,570 acres of meadows. Restore function in up to 470 miles of riparian streams and intermittent and ephemeral stream channels (non-riparian). Restore up to 360 miles of stream habitat for threatened, endangered, and sensitive aquatic species. Construct up to 200 miles of protective barriers around springs, aspen, Bebb’s willows, and bigtooth maples, as needed for restoration.
  11. I just submitted my 2 cents worth at https://cara.ecosystem-management.org/Public/CommentInput?project=48210
  12. Hi Luke. There are existing laws that govern where people can drive. I suggest people follow the law.
  13. I'm going to ignore Bob's obvious provocation and point out that the comments of others -- read at following link -- agree with me and chriski that "no action should be taken". This proposed pipe dream is a huge waste of taxpayer money which would replace Mother Nature with a bunch of bureaucrats at the USFS while severely limiting the public's right to access in this area.
