That is cool! I wonder what all they will have. I just joined REI because I am gearing up for BorregoFest and other outings.
There is a thread somewhere on it in here.. or in the blue room.FunJunkie said:I can't find anything on this either. got any links? Sounds ricockulous that an outdoor company would be trying to limit outdoor activity. I never bought from them just because bass pro is cooler.
They sell OHV trail books there. Dom, where did you get this info?DominicG said:REI is an advocate for the closing of OHV trails
That could be the next great socal shirt idea!Fjamming said:Let's boycott pavement.
What are you trying to say Dave? lol I agree in that just because someone supports The Sierra Club does not necessarily mean that they do not condone responsible OHV usage. If that is what you were trying to say that is...CADavebert said:The only thing I found, was a forum, where someone said that REI supported the Sierra Club and another similar state organization. (FYI, the link was dead and I could only see it via the Google Cached link).
I'm personally not a big fan of the Sierra Club, but from a business perspective, I completely understand why REI, as a company, would try to help support the Sierra Club. That said, I, again personally, don't agree with what the Sierra Club stands for most of the time, but they are not completely bad.
The same thing can be said for OHV. There are some groups and users who are HORRIBLE, and making a bad name for all the rest of us. I believe it is up to the responsible behaving participants to clean up after the a$$ hats, and to confront the a$$ hats whenever they are doing things in the wilderness they shouldn't do.
My 2 cents.
Is this all getting as political as blue yet? ;D
