Every Friday we will look back at our 50 years fighting for your rights. This CORVA's fiftieth flashback Friday is brought to you from the year 1995. We effectively sued on behalf of off-roaders and won the equivalent of 140 million in today's dollars. These funds had been taken by the state from the OHV trust fund and transferred to the general fund during a time of budget shortfalls. We have been protecting your rights for 50 years, since before alot of you were born. I will see you all in person at the #truckhavenchallenge tomorrow 👌
A little throwback Thursday look at the #truckhavenchallenge in 2010! This is our 24th annual challenge and it is growing bigger every year. There are many great events happening this Saturday but only 1 that keeps YOUR land open to YOU! Like open riding in ocotillo? The rubicon trail having all year access? Johnson valley remaining open to ohv recreation? Want your voice heard in the BLM desert advisory council? Want to support fighting (and winning) against the state water resources control board to restrict access in 17 Forrest? Do you want an organization to fight back against government overreach and illegal closures legislatively and effectively? Well then we think we know where you'll be this Saturday 👌 yes this event does involve actual offroading but the course is friendly to any vehicle of any skill level... With optional lines for more advanced participants! 😬 #truckhavenchallenge
We have topped the limit for @ie4w 5000$ matching grant!!! We are so thankful for groups like @ie4w who are so generous and caring and really stand behind our message! These funds go directly to fighting at the capital to keep your lands open! We are a volunteer run organization and rely on donations to hire lawyers to enact legislative change and to get advocates to sway the opinions of legislators. Our best feature is our awesome members like this group and our 2nd best is our many success stories in fighting for your rights which we will be highlighting over the next few posts 🙌 🙌
I'm sure by now you've seen the viral story by @pbs based off an environmentalists Twitter photo claiming a Joshua tree was cut down to make a 4x4 trail into pristine desert. I would like you to examine the photo and see if you can find tire marks, foot prints, hatchet marks, or a single piece of evidence that this plant did not fall over on its own months ago... This is a perfect example of making a photo fit an agenda regardless of the truth. The fact that this photo and story were both the product of anti-OHV persons should not surprise anyone in the least. Again we would like to thank the 4x4 groups that participated in the cleanup effort this weekend despite no help from the supposed environmental groups. I hate to use this term but this is #fakenews Please tag and share this to get the word out, thank you.

It’s been a great run but this is my last post as the guy who started the CORVA IG. I started it because I was sick and tired of seeing access to our public lands being taken away here in CA and they didn’t have one. As a 48 year old white guy with two left thumbs I probably wasn’t the best candidate but it worked out. The account has grown too big for me too effectively handle and CORVA deserves better. I will be handing the account over after today to a duo that really know their stuff and can maximize the incredible tools IG has to offer. Buying CORVA gear, becoming a member etc... will soon be available from your phone like the cool kids accounts! It’s an incredible tool and with other recent changes to CORVA and an increase in overall knowledge of who we are and what we do the account needs to be run by someone more tech savvy than myself. I’ve met and ridden with some amazing people and continue to be blown away by the #offroadcommunity It’s been a sincere pleasure meeting and knowing some of you. Waaaaaay too many people to thank and tag for all of their support! I hope I don’t offend anyone but I truly appreciate all who have helped me out and I thank ALL of you out there who have stepped up to membership or bought gear. I stole this pic of Alabama Hills from @roaminglost because it’s awesome and he’s a good dude and captures the spirit behind CORVA. I’ll leave you with this, these are YOUR #california #publiclands don’t let anyone, any organization, any government take these away! Please consider a membership or get involved with us or any reputable land use advocacy group that does more than just file petitions. I’ll be cruising around on my dual sport and still helping behind the scenes. Have a great rest of your week and then get out there and enjoy YOUR lands! #corva #isupportoffroadrecreation
“Due to a lapse in funding this website will not be actively updated until funding is restored “. This sucks. Not sure when the Gov will get its act together we don’t know what was closed or open right before this happened... Anyone in South OC know if the #maplesprings gate is open or not? Hopefully this ends soon and those that use public lands can get back to enjoying them! 😩😡
Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! The #corva store is fully stocked! Go get you some #publiclands supporting goodness! #offroadcommunity #supportthosewhosupportyou #protectingthelandforthepeoplenotfromthepeople #isupportoffroadrecreation #corvathebear
So many awesome and different friends and supporters and vehicles to tag or mention! A very sincere THANK YOU to all that follow and support us! What a great year 2018 was we appreciate you all! We at CORVA wish ALL of the awesome #offroadcommunity a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Looking forward to 2019! (No post tomorrow it’s a bit of an open secret 🎅🏽 contacted us and actually sub contracted his #california portion of his route to us you know he ran into some red sticker/ green sticker snags and we pulled some strings....)
