Not all that up to date on it but a few years back there was a list published on line showing who supported groups that want no mechanized use on most public lands. Maybe they have changed their tune due to pressure, maybe they just threw a couple of bucks to the opposition (us) so they can say "Look we support you....." (even though they still support the anti's with far more bucks) If and when I have time I'll see if I can find it (the listing)... I do know that before I knew about the list I was in an REI looking at tents and GPS, Spot etc. Once my up till then helpful sales person found out I was doing the ADV bit he just walked away to help someone who just walked in the door.....across the store. Needless to say I headed for the door with my wallet intact. Soon after that I found the list on line and REI was on it....
