From a national perspective, OHV had just become aware of the need for it to become substantively organized to protect and defend itself from the political agenda of anti-access groups who now had added motorized recreation to their list of human activities that should be either banned or severely restricted.
Although OHV has become more effective in battling closure advocates in the administrative and legal arenas, it still has a long way to go when it comes to becoming a political force in the electoral process.
Anti-access groups have developed an effective strategy to further their goals. They are engaged in both the grassroots/administrative process AND the electoral process. OHV should be commended for their successful efforts in the administrative process, but they are still in the beginning stage of affecting the outcomes on Election Day.
The Trail PAC was founded to help give OHV a seat at the "political table." We started that effort for the 2012 election and plan to grow our impact for the 2014 midterm cycle to help send pro-trail candidates to Congress.
Please go to the donation link below if you want to make an early contribution for our pro-trail efforts in the upcoming election.
See you on the campaign trail,
Don Amador, Founder
The Trail PAC
