Getting back to the GMO Land issue from this April, are there any updates?

I think it was Dan who said someone on GMO land in Georgia got hurt, sued GMO and won. While trying to find information about such a lawsuit (I was unsuccessful), I did come across this nasty letter:

http://natra.dirtrider.net/pdf_files/TDEC_Report1.pdf



This really put a new light on land use issues, specifically crossing water. This may also shed some light on why GMO is so cold to Off Highway Vehicle access.

Honestly, I never gave any thought to water crossings. There are plenty of pictures around here of water crossings, making it seem "OK". Maybe it's not "OK". Had the Alabama people known they were Violating a Clean Water Act, I'm sure they would have remedied the problem with bridges or re-routes.

I know you cannot put up a house around here without silt fencing. It stands to reason we should not be causing silt to enter waterways from the use of our bikes.

Water crossings are a no-no from what I've been told. All the trails that I know of up this way ( logging roads mostly ) have bridges constructed over actual water courses. Any pics I've seen in the UP that entail watery stuff is usually from mud holes or anything caused by rain. Quite the fine if you're caught crossing any river in any kind of vehicle.

Even worse if your ride gets stuck in a body of water, just ask all the genius ice fishermen down in Keweenaw Bay or the even smarter snowmobile riders. You get fined by the day until you get your ride out of the drink.

Riding the Huron Mountains Saturday the 27th.

Anybody want to ride the Pesheekee Grade, Huron Mountains, the territory between L'Anse and Marquette, etc. with me this Saturday the 27th.? It will be cold and clear, .... no different than riding a snowmobile.

Ride Report: I started the day with snow flurries. The gravel roads were great! It would take quite a while to explore this area. I need to spend more time here. Thanks to you good people of the UP for letting me share your territory.

Nice pic! I do like that area a lot. Hopefully, I'll be able to ride with you next time.

How far north did you get? You saw 4 Beers Corner no doubt. Some great riding up East of Big Eric's bridge.

When you get deep enough into the woods, down some overgrown turkey trail, you may encounter one of these:


If you do, I'd advise that you turn around.

Any more pics?

Cheers, Dave

Yes Dave, I added some more photos to 'Photobucket' this morning http://s1168.photobucket.com/albums/...hekee%20Grade/ I certainly saw "4 Beer Corners". I rode from Champion to L'Anse, and returned by the same route because I didn't want to get lost (read: fear of the dark and the cold).

Saw this in the daily mining gazette this morning:



Probably can't make the meeting myself, but I'll probably call the guy for more info when I get a chance.
