Those Damnable BLM Passes

If this is like the BLM pass demonstration program they ran in Southern California, you'll be required to stop by the nearest BLM or Forest Service office to purchase a day, month or year pass.

I was just leaving SoCal when the program started. It was immediately jumped on as a money maker and you could get ticketed for pulling off the side of the road a foot too far for the BLM or Forset Service worker's tastes. Take care when you pull over to change a flat on the back roads in the Mojave Desert National Preserve.

Needless to say, one ticket cost more than a year long pass. And if you got hit with a ticket you still had to buy a pass before you could go back out.

And I imagine that wonderful folks like the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office will do their part to "help" the BLM and Forest Service enforce the pass requirement if they're allowed a cut of the revenue this will generate.
