Del & Stacie Albright's Trail Access Partnership Tour

I've mentioned before about Del Albright leading the fight to keep public lands open to the public.  He and Stacie Albright have come up with some creative ways to grab the public's attention and recruit more troops.  One of their current strategies is the Trail Access Partnership Tour which they describe as such:
TAPT is about saving trails and building support for organized recreation:
Join BlueRibbon Coalition Del & Stacie Albright on landuse fun convoys, dedicated to trail access awareness and building strength in organized recreation groups, while providing adventure stops and area orientations along the way.  every_trail_sacred_ribbon.jpgSupport landuse; have fun; hang with the big boys like Nemesis Industries, Burnsville Offroad, T&T Customs, Daystar and other partner businesses.     
Campfire stories will be unequalled!   Evening sessions will include landuse seminars, membership building motivational speeches, leadership tips, and vendor showcasing with tech tips as appropriate.
Our goals include: To increase awareness of landuse and access; to build support for organized recreation groups like the BlueRibbon Coalition; to promote responsible motorized recreation; and to secure a future for all of us to have access to our public lands and private OHV areas.

The Trail Access Partnership Tour is already underway; you can follow Team Albright's travels on their blog.  They also put together a short video from their adventure on Sleeping Princess and Cactus Canyon trails, outside Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City, Arizona, which are two of countless trails across America that are currently under very real threat of closure by liberal politicians under pressure from environmental extremists:

If you want to learn more about these trails and others like them in Arizona, there is no better guidebook than Guide to Arizona Backroads and 4-Wheel Drive Trails.
