Cameron Steele and Desert Assassins are back to share more of Baja in this edition of #BFGoodrich #50BestOfBaja. Episode 7 shows us how the magic of Baja extend...s from the picturesque cliffs and coasts into the middle of the peninsula. There, we learn why this desolate stretch of land is called the Never Never.
Check out a video from our 02/10/18 Trail Cleanup off Bush Highway between Butcher Jones and the Bee-Line We teamed up with our friend, Mica Harkins, to bring a... small group of volunteers out to help us remove a shingle pile, broken glass, and scattered trash left behind from before the trail was closed to vehicles. Between the 12 of us, we removed 1,045 pounds of trash and 6 tires from the Tonto National Forest. Thank you to everyone for their hard work and for making the day so much fun!⠀⠀
Thanks again to everyone at Ascender Game Carrier for making it a lot easier to for us move 1,045 pounds of trash half a mile to our truck and trailer. We love our Ascender Game Carrier for trail cleanup work! ⠀

I heard from the AZOHVC Legislative Officer Jeff Gursh yesterday that Governor Ducey has it in the budget to sweep the entire OHV Sticker fund for the next 10 years to pay for education funding. According to the Ducey's Chief of Staff they don't think the OHV community will care and will not make any noise or cause any political (read re-election) trouble. Does that sound like you?
Jeff is meeting with the Governor's Office this week to try and talk some sense into these people but I just want to forewarn you all that action on your part might be necessary if Jeff's arguments are not persuasive enough. Letters, emails, and possibly even a OHV rally at the Capital building might be necessary.
More to come...........
