Decision allows ISDRA RAMP to remain in place

After 15 long years of near-constant litigation, we have finally won the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) case, keeping open thousands of acres of sand dunes for OHV recreation. The 9th Circuit just released its opinion affirming the District Court decision from 2014 and allowing the ISDRA RAMP to remain in place.

Peter Seck, 50, a packaging sales rep from Granite Bay, Calif., on his 1967 Jeep CJ-5, as told to A.J. Baime.

The Auburn Jeep Club is the oldest Jeep-only club in the nation. Every July, the club makes a trip to the Rubicon, one of the toughest off-road trails in the world. It is 22 miles long from Georgetown to Lake Tahoe in California. It is so rugged, Jeep named one of its most well-known vehicles after it (the Wrangler Rubicon).

In 1967, my dad bought a Jeep and he lived in Auburn. The club asked him to make the Rubicon trip because he was a general practitioner in town, and they liked having a doctor with them. He went for several years. In 1979, he rolled the Jeep on the Rubicon. No one got hurt, but that scared him, and he never took his Jeep on that trail again.
