Withering Economy to Kill Some of California's World Famous Motorcycle Destination Parks and Campgrounds

2011-05-22 11:23
We may have escaped the Rapture, but we just can't seem to hide from the massive Government debt that's now focusing on the jewel of many Motorcyclist's summer vacations - California's State Parks. On May 16th the Sacramento Bee reported that the State plans to close almost one quarter of California's State Parks. The closures will reach Statewide and threaten idealic destinations from Mt. Palomar all the way North to the World Famous Redwoods. The closures are enough to bring a tear to the eye of even the most hardened Motorcyclist. The list of the 70 Parks on the chopping block are......
