As one of the two Oregon state liaisons for the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF), I will be attending a meeting of the BLM in Salem, OR this Thursday March 6th. As I'm sure you know, one of the main focuses of the RAF is to work hard to keep current landing surfaces open along with actually re-opening other strips previously closed. I really need your help in developing a list of BLM managed lands in Western Oregon which have had some type of aircraft usage. While not impossible, it's going to be difficult to argue to keep airstrips open if we can't do a good job in presenting our case that we have in fact used BLM managed ground to operate our aircraft.
Keep in mind, this request is only for Western Oregon BLM areas. If you're not sure whether the site you've been using is in Western Oregon, list it anyway and I'll try to figure it out. A map on the following http://www.blm.gov/or/plans/rmpswesternoregon/ (I hope I did that right) will take you to a map of the area in consideration. We're short on time so please jump right on this using any resource you can to help me with this list.
