Spitler told me he advocates no OHV use at all. Anywhere. But he is at least practical enough to know that won't happen. So, his goal is to relegate OHV's to 3-acre parcels (motocross tracks), or "parks" outside of a very few large metro areas, where OHV riders will just have to be happy. He feels the CDCA plan of 1980 was merely a stepping stone to a much more restrictive goal of eliminating vehicles entirely from the backcountry. When I mentioned that such a plan was meant as a framework for land use from that day forward, and was intended as an agreement to be abided by between competing land use interests, his exact words were: "That was then, this is now". In other words, there is no such thing as an agreement, and his word means nothing.

Officially, OHV groups and their leadership have abided by the agreement. Only unknown individuals intent on violating the law operate outside the agreement. On the other hand, also officially, radical environmental leadership has led the way to officially violate the agreements each and every single time one is struck. Whenever they don't get everything they wanted in the agreement, officially, they either re-open negotiations with a new threat of lawsuits, or they file lawsuits against land use managers such as BLM or USFS in order to dictate policy. Balance is not their goal. Total control is their goal, and it's evident from the way they betray everyone else in the process.

Spitler is at the tip of the spear on this sort of dishonest and adversarial tactic. His use of public money while Chair of OHMVR Commission should give you a pretty good indication of the character of this person. Why he was never prosecuted for what he did is beyond my ability to understand.
