It's time to get 4x4's on Ft Hood again (Petition)

Postby KF5ZXT » Mon Oct 01, 2012 10:20 am

Petition set up to open up a local Texas trail (description here). I know John wheeled here a few times. I encourage all to sign.

The reason Ft Hood commanders banned wheeling access was because military service members and civilians were not following simple range rules. I need at least 500 names to sign this petition to get this up and running again. If you have not been to Ft Hood before, it is truely a sight. imagine trails that you could run on that was used by tanks. There is some gnarly trails waiting for us.
Please help the military jeepers, Texas4x4.org, and area surrounding Ft Hood to enjoy Ft Hood again as it once was.
Below is a link to the petition. You want to know the best part... No park fees.

Mod's, if this post is in the wrong section, let me know where to post it. I wanted to post it in the section with the most traffic.
Thanks for viewing.

In the not-so-distant past, Fort Hood allowed off-road capable vehicles to enjoy specific training areas on the installation for recreational "wheeling." Even though Fort Hood contains an incredible source of terrain for off-road enthusiasts, it is currently off limits for this type of use according to Fort Hood regulation 210-3; ATV's and dirtbikes, however, have been given a brand new dedicated facility to ride in.

It is currently very difficult for recreational off-roaders to find areas in Texas to legally ride without having to pay significant entrance fees to privately owned parks and traveling several hours to these few locations. Fort Hood already has the knowledge of how to successfully manage the allowance of off-roading in the training area, leaving no reason why it should be currently forbidden. The installation even stands to gain significant money from reinstating a 4x4 program. The post would also be able to regulate as they please, and check-in procedures and buddy-system requirements help protect Fort Hood from liabilities regarding safety, vehicle recovery, etc. There are also many individuals in the community willing to dedicate some of their time to maintaining the area and helping more novice wheelers.

I am confident that this would be a very successful program should Fort Hood decide to pursue it once again. It would be a fantastic morale booster for those currently serving, and a wonderful new way for the post to reconnect with it's surrounding community at virtually no cost to the post. Off-roaders could also be an excellent source of information for teams that are working to preserve and protect the environment of Fort Hood.

Jeep Owner wrote:Update regarding Wheeling at Fort Hood

I have begun correspondence with III Corps at Fort Hood and your signatures and comments have been forwarded to those who have the power to make the big decisions. The initial response that I received indicates at the very least a willingness to revisit the possibility of Fort Hood being reopened to wheeling. As they assess the ability of Fort Hood to reinstate an offroad program, I will be kept "in the loop" and will continue to pass on that information to you all.
I would like to thank each and every one of you for signing this petition and showing your support not only for the wheeling community, but our soldiers and their families as well. Let us all keep our fingers crossed, and see you on the trail!
