    Surveyor dies in Johnson Valley

    Report: man was surveying for Marine base expansion project

    By KRIS REILLY
    Editor

    JOHNSON VALLEY • A man died last week of unknown causes while surveying the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle area for the proposed Marine base expansion, according to sheriff’s department documents.

    Foul play was not suspected, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department report.

    On Nov. 14, a group of surveyors was several miles north of the intersection of Bessemer Mine Road and Old Woman Springs Road, east of Lucerne Valley.

    A man identified as John Patrick Mike began coughing and needed to take a break; he then started convulsing. Members of the group attempted CPR, but Mike died at the scene — in a remote location accessible only by four-wheel-drive vehicles.

    A deputy was called at 1:49 p.m., and later the coroner was called to the scene.

    There were no signs of trauma to the body, according to the deputy’s report.

    The Marines have made it clear that the Johnson Valley OHV area is their preferred location for the expansion of the Twentynine Palms base.

    As of press time on Monday, the Marines had not yet released a record of decision (ROD) on their expansion plans, but the ROD is expected before the end of the year. The final decision will be made by Congress at an undetermined date.

    The OP is probably talking about how someone working to shut down a riding area died unexpectedly.

    I'm all for giving the Marine Corps the training terrain they need to be ready for anything. I also hate to see riding areas closed. I wonder how likely it would be to see an agreement something like the hunters have with the US Army Fort Hunter Leggitt? They close areas when training is scheduled, but otherwise let the public in for recreation.

    In this case they are talking about expanding a live fire area. That means one it is in use, there will be ordinance on the ground. That would in effect shut it down to public access for ever.

    WAYYYY over his head. I like your style,Mr.Burmshot. I have a strong feeling that this Bolt guy will be drifting off back to his little cyber room VERY soon. I have to wonder if the dork even rides.. Anyway I'm sorry if I pissed off the regulars her but that Bolt guy reminds of a KNOW IT ALL guy that we all had in Auto Shop in High School. I don't know about evryone else but the guy I knew back in shop is now doing a "mean Burger flip" @ McDonalds.

    So that TT thread constituted BOLT "getting his ass handed to him" to you guys? That was sad. You TT guys actually resorted to calling each other "retards". Really, retards? That's the best you could come up with?

    I'm all for them not taking our riding area's, BUT i'm not for somebody who is glad that another human died doing his job. Wake up FF's thats why he named it "Bad Karma" so if you don't agree then :fyyff:fyyff:fyyff:fyyff
