Grub Hub Camp Kitchen helps reduce waste to make camping much easier and more sustainable.
Leeds, Utah (Dec 20, 2012) - For many people base camping is a tradition that makes it possible to enjoy hiking, mountain biking, climbing, rafting, photography, fishing, hunting, surfing, and other outdoor activities, often taking place miles from home. Base camping also allows exploration and enjoyment of new places with the limited recreation time we have available.
"Unfortunately 'car camping' or 'base camping' is often associated with high impacts to the environment," claims GrubHubUSA company president Joe Baughman. "Just like at home, most activities within camp center around the kitchen. Without an easy and efficient method of organizing, cooking and preparing food outdoors, excessive waste and negative impacts to the environment are much more likely. When campers negatively impact an area the result is more regulation, higher costs and less freedom."

Fort Mill, SC – December 6, 2012. For some, the Henderson 250 was a race to the Best In The Desert (BITD) championship. For others, it was an opportunity to finish the 2012 BITD season with a bang. And that’s just what NASCAR standout Justin Lofton did. For the second year in a row, Lofton captured the Class 1500 win.
“It was an awesome weekend for all of us on the Lofton Racing Team,” said Lofton. “We were bummed that we missed the pole by two-tenths of a second. And I know exactly where that’s at, so it’s the most annoying thing in the world.
“We took the pre-runner out in the Sportsman’s Class and were able to get a quick peek at the track to make sure there were no holes out there.” Lofton continued, “So when we got into the 1500 buggy, it was comforting to know what to expect. Overall it was a great race.”
The Ashton/Island Park Ranger District is interested in hearing any comments, concerns, ideas, or issues you may have regarding their Island Park Off Highway Vehicle Trails project/proposal.
The purpose of this proposal is to revise management of areas open to cross-country OHV travel and designate OHV trails that connect to the Forest Transportation System. This action is needed to provide a safe and sustainable travel system that reduce resource impacts, improve public safety, improve access, and improve the ability to enforce travel restrictions.
This proposal will:
1. Designate approximately 33 miles of trail. Of the proposed 33 miles of trail:
• Approximately 11 miles of National Forest System Roads currently closed to public motor vehicle use will convert to National Forest System Trails.
• Approximately 19 miles of user-created routes will convert to National Forest System Trails which will require reconstruction.
• Approximately 3 miles of trail will require new construction.

Johnson Valley, a popular OHV area in California, is at risk. The Marine Corps is trying to expand the 29 Palms facility and takeMon, 11/26/2012 - 18:08
Take Action to Protect 4WD Access
Johnson Valley, a popular OHV area in California, is at risk. The Marine Corps is trying to expand the 29 Palms facility and take over most of the OHV area for training exercises. The Marines would only need the extra space(147,000 acres) for less than 30 days a year. They plan to use the area for live-fire training, as a result, the area will be forever closed to OHV recreation.
An amendment to the Defense Authorization bill that passed the full House would require the Marines to identify the impact closing the area would have on OHV recreation and the local economy. The amendment requires the Marines to examine using the Johnson Valley area in ways that would not permanently lock out OHV access, and the potential of using other nearby public lands instead of Johnson Valley. This amendment only asks the Marines to consider other options.
The US Senate is poised to act on the Defense Authorization bill. Contact your 2 US Senators urging them to support the Johnson Valley amendment in the Senate bill.
It always seems to be in the way and no convenient place to snug it out of the way. Enter the next generation of decorations for the end of winch cable.
Factor 55 has designed a line of strong and light recovery products for the the off road market based on exacting aerospace and defense industry standards. Their ProLink series, of 6000 series aluminum, eliminates the traditional winch hook in favor of a safer and stronger screw pin shackle D-Ring.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Commission, pursuant to authority contained in Section 5090.24 of the Public Resources Code and Section 11120 et seq. of the Government Code, will conduct a tour on November 30, 2012 and will meet on December 1, 2012 according to the following schedule.
OHMVR Commission Tour: Friday, November 30, 2012 Hollister Hills SVRA
Time and Tour Information: The tour will meet at the Hollister Hills Training Building at 10 am (please see attached map). The tour will last six hours and end back at the Training Building at approximately 4 pm. In order to participate in this tour, you must have a high clearance 4WD vehicle. The tour will involve some walking over uneven terrain. Layered clothing and sturdy footwear are recommended. Services will be limited during the tour route, but we will stop at the camp store which has a payphone as well as sundry items. Cell phone service is intermittent. Participants should be prepared with sufficient food and water supplies for a full day on the trail.
Redondo Beach, CA (Nov 15, 2012) – Badlands Off-Road Adventures, Inc. has released a “Winching Recovery Bandana” that contains all the information required for a winch recovery operation in a soft foldable format, which can be stuffed in to your recovery bag.
According to Tom Severin, President of Badlands Off-Road Adventures, “the bandana is a fantastic supplement to the Badlands Off-road Adventure’s Basic to Advanced Winching and Recovery DVD. The Bandana is packed full of useful information and is a quick reference in the field when you do not have a DVD player nor time to watch the full comprehensive 81 minute DVD.”
A winch is a useful off-road tool that can quickly become dangerous and potentially lethal to the operator and spectators. Proper use requires good working knowledge of safety procedures, safe riggings and inspection. Since winches are not used often, thorough training is a must to retain that knowledge. The Bandana serves as a quick reminder of the details learned in the training class and watching the DVD.
Event is May 10-12 at Hollister Hills, SVRA
