If thieves want to get to the these archeological sites, remove dinosaur
tracks or go after fossils, blocking roads will make it simpler for them.
There will be nobody else around, since this land can no longer be used for
recreational purposes, to watch over these treasures. All of the protection
built into the great pyramids in Egypt did very little to stop looters.
There is such thing as overregulation which usually results in the lose of
freedom. I do not take it lightly when some idiotic bureaucrat takes these
freedoms away.

You can stick to paved roads but many of us prefer to actually enjoy public
lands that were intended for public use by our forefathers.

It will not be long before meteorite hunters are considered thieves due to
the ridiculous 1906 Antiquities laws which were never intended to
nationalize vast areas of land without any public input whatsoever.

The meteorite collection weight limit on public land has now been reduced to
Zero pounds.
