    As many of you know, access to vehicle traffic on West Mill Road was cut off by the town of Hammonton when they came forward with an exclusive license agreement. This petition is asking the DEP to move forward with actions to give us all vehicle access to thousands of acres of woods that the closure of this road has taken from us.

    I'm hoping some of our members know the motorcycle clubs, and can ask them to sign.

    Hunting clubs would be interested. I know some were sitting along 206 annoyed as hell when the gate first went up.

    If you know the names, I can look on the websites and will email them. But maybe our redneck friend has already.

    301 as of now. I wrote a hunter who is a member of a club that many years ago had the state throw them out after acquiring the property the club was located on. He and the other members may be sympathetic.

    I just paid to run the post on the NJPB facebook page as an ad for 7 days. So this will be getting in front of a lot more eyeballs now.

    We now have 340 signatures. Send me an email, and I'll split that cost with you Ben.

    I kindly asked the Outdoor Club of South Jersey to introduce the petition to their members. The administrator(?) came back at me with:

    "Sorry I'm for getting all the vehicles out of the forest there's too much damage".
