JEEPING FREEDOM IS A TENUOUS LIFESTYLE

The lifestyle we enjoy called Jeeping depends on Your relationship with Your congressperson.  If you want to continue to bounce your rig around places like Moab (featured pic), then you’d best think about what is offered here.

Are you worried about how this country is run sometimes? Do you think some politicians come from outer space because they sure don’t know what you think is right? Do you shake your head in disgust at some of the “bills” introduced in Congress? Well, how about we do something about it!

Now before you turn away, allow to give you some wiggle room — you can have a relationship through others.  Follow along.

 

It boils down to YOUR relationship with your elected officials, and especially your congressperson. Has he/she heard from you about what you want or like? Do you take their staffers on rides in your area? Do they know you are an off-roader who votes?

Your congressperson can help you in so many ways. They can intervene with federal agency bureaucratic stumbling blocks. They can help you with the VA if you are a Vet. They can get bills passed that make sense.

A good congressperson can help you get a permit for your event on federal lands. But know this; you can’t just come out of no where with a serious request and expect to be moved to the head of the line.

What About Through Others?

So, OK, you are not going to write letters, set up meetings with congress critter staff, or even get out and help someone get elected.  But you want a relationship where your voice can be heard.  Here’s how.

Or just bottom line, GET BEHIND and support someone, some group that is doing all this FOR you.  Be in the game; one way or the other.
