Washington/Oregon woods closed down ? #1
Due to the COVID stuff, both a Washington and Oregon have apparently closed down the public woods to riding. I don’t know about desert areas, but unless you have property, your enduro is sadly parked for awhile.

:Ugh

IF it isn't one thing, it's another.

California run OHV parks are closed, not if desert areas like Johnson Valley could be closed, no gate.

I don’t understand the reasoning for some of the closures. What is the danger in going out to an area where you’re not likely to run into anyone. Been checking some of my favorite small lakes that I like to fish this time of year. Usually just a couple boats out, self pay, no one working the ramps. How is this a problem?
This whole situation is extremely dangerous but come on, how is going off by yourself an issue? Sorry, just venting.

I agree to if self pay, but I'm sure the States reasoning at least for some lakes is maintenance is needed, like garbage pickup and port-o potty cleaning. River access is all open though.

When I read this Post yesterday it sounded very much like an Australian style "April Fools " joke, being that it was April 1. Looks like it was for real.
Are "April Fool" jokes conducted in other parts of the world ?

Yes here in the States, and that’s no joke, or is it.

Not to hijack but daughter woke up her son and told him to get a move on, school opened back up and he was late. When she told him April fools he cried, loves school.
