Default All National Park roads closed.

Couldn't get gas in Hite. All roads, through NP's are closed. Somehow the rangers are "volunteering" to enforce these closures.

http://www.nps.gov/shutdown/index.html

head's up for anyone headed to UT or any NP soon.


Good news is the pit toilets in San Rafael Swell still had toilet paper this morning.

Fun. Can't keep public land open but we can go ahead and keep paying employees to close it.

None of this is for show.

Spent the last 6 days in the Swell. Near Temple Mountain. Crossed the Muddy river. 2+ hour bike extraction. Hanksville for gas then Crossed the Dirty Devil toward Hite. Plan was to hit Maze and Needles. No luck, so up Flint and back to Swell. Got gas from other motorcyclists.

He? Really Mike? Congress has the purse strings. Don't muck up the thread with BS.

Wow, how deep was the Dirty Devil? Were rangers camped at the bottom of the flint to turn you back? Or at the east end of Poison Springs Road?

What's the opposite of Congress? Progress.
