I am 22 years old and have been a Juneau resident my whole life. I am an avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman, as are my family and friends. Within the past five years I have developed a liking for dirt biking and off-road recreation. It saddens me that there is no area designated to ride here in Juneau.
I have been following the Rough Riders’ attempt to get a place to ride and have seen it go nowhere but into walls. I love the beauty of this place and want to keep a balance of the environment and recreation and I believe it is possible. I don’t intend to complain or start some big argument. Instead I want to personally ask those who have been paying attention to this issue and have opinions on it to write me. I am looking more for people who are against it, or who were against the previous attempts to create a designated area to write me with reasons why in educated and thoughtful reasons.
I’m doing my own personal research paper on this and would like to hear from you. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope we can all move forward on this to find a balance somewhere. Thank you.
