    I live up in Pennsylvania but was born in Tn and still have family just south of the Jackson area (Bolivar, Somerville). We visit two to three times a year, usually in conjunction with the spring or fall trail ride at Loretta Lynn's Ranch. My riding buddies from down that area constantly telling me about loosing riding area's like Chickasaw State Park. It used to be a great place until the hoodlums on ATV's f'd that up for everyone. We used to spend hours on trails there from the early 70's till what 2000 or so when they banned everything except plated bikes on gravel roads only. Now we haul over 2hours up to LBL or out to West Point to ride while on vacation.

    Knowing that Tennessee has land that could be used for recreation is far better than Not having land to begin with. I still own property there so I Gladly signed the petition to help in opening up More Of this available land.

    Thank you all for your efforts regarding this manner. It is a noble cause! My kids and future grandkids will thank you for your hard work in organizing this.

    75 Bronco, I feel your pain but lets face the facts, There's plenty of land for the hunting crowd to share in the land with the riding community. Just be thankful you don't have laws like we do in Pa that doesn't allow hunting on Sundays!

    Coming here from Massachusetts where we work with the agencies in charge building bridges through swamps , trail maintenance etc. it was that or we got nothing. Glad to be here in Tennesee. Is there a group like Netra here . new England trail riders association . Only together can we gain ground. I am older now ( 63) riding offroad for many years. Always willing to lend a hand . I have seen first hand that we can win.
