Looks like Marines would like our OHV area. There is an online petition to try and stop their expansion.
Link to sign Save the Johnson Valley OHV Area. Be fiscally responsible. Stop 29 Palms Marine base expansion. Keep public lands open.
With utmost respect for our nation’s military and national defense, we request our government deny any request by the US Marines to acquire 140K acres of public land designated for OHV use in Johnson Valley, CA for the purpose of expanding the 29 Palms Marine base. Expanding the world’s largest Marine base will cost tax payers millions and the Marines have publicly stated the land is only needed 2 months a year. Economic reports show neighboring communities and small businesses could lose $100 Million annually due to base expansion. The Marines current expansion plan is unnecessary and fiscally irresponsible. We request our government encourage the Marines to work with the public and obtain permits from the BLM to meet training objectives instead of closing this land to the public forever.
Signed this morning, I hope everyone here will take the time to sign it too. Restrictions on wheeling in one part of the country don't just affect those who wheel there, they affect us all. So no matter where in the U.S. you live, PLEASE take a minute or two to sign it and help all offroaders everwhere.

Done and posted. Even got my mom to sign. She is kind a tree huger not into offroading. But I told her to think of the animals that will be killed when they start bombing that area. That did it and she signed!!!
