    This might break first trip out, but a 7" screen for under $200 on an android os w/ cached maps is worth the risk. On my dirt bike i'm setting up a 4" screen on a military spec rugged samsung rugby pro...

    It's just a resolution and has no actual legal impact. A resolution basically means "we all agree on a statement" and that most likely it won't be accepted by the Utah legislature.

    I will say that with the appointment of the head of REI to lead the interior department that there is a very strong chance that Canyonlands national monument is a very likely reality. The interests of the national monument is to reduce the amount of OHV trails/roads (goal #1 in importance) and to prevent mineral and oil extraction (goal #2, with potash being the biggest issue right now). She already has bi-partisan support from the oil and outdoors industries. Unless something crazy happens, she is likely to be approved as it currently looks.

    We've been going through the greater Canyonlands proposal and it seeks to close 40% of the OHV trails. Let me repeat, 40% of the trails there. Including some incredibly important motorized and OHV routes that are world class and would be real losses. I'm a skier and outdoors person and I'm all for protecting Canyonlands and support some of the activities of the outdoor industry, but it's just too radical.

    Anyway, our access in this area is in real trouble.

    This is what happens when we elect radicals to represent us and to be the voice of the OHV industry for access: no one listens to them and they have no voice whatsoever.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, 7" Cool thing about the dualSportMaps app for android is that you stream maps in over wireless but whatever you look at is saved to the sd card so I've got 24k topo's, as well as google maps for a pretty big area.

    I am stuck in Arizona just five more days.
    It's riding weather down here though.
    But nowhere to rent a bike.

    Maybe a good thing.

    Yup, via 4x4. Spunks cabin is just ~3/4 mile SW of the peak. Gated on both sides of the mountain year round through I know you can get up there on a sled in the winter.

    I'll take your word for it. You seem to be an authority on the subject.
    I'm a city boy. I guess if you've seen one you've seen all three or

    So, a man from Montana walks into his house holding a sheep under one arm.

    His wife sees the sheep and screams, "Why you bringin' that filthy animal in here?"

    "This is the pig I've been keeping with when I'm not with you." He replies.

    "That's not a pig, it's a sheep!" She insists.

    The man looks from the sheep then back to his wife and says:

    "I wasn't talking to you."
