I Am Almost Old Enough, I Can't Wait!

I ran into some great Women on a recent canyoneering trip in Utah. Click here to go to the website of The Great Old Broads for Wilderness
At 49, I am old enough to be a Training Broad.
I think to a politician there could be no group more intimidating. and they can be pretty chatty after a couple of beers.

Sign our petition to Sen. Orrin Hatch letting him know that you support Great Old Broads for Wilderness' efforts to keep roadless areas roadless. Letting him know that we, of a certain age, don't want to be used as an excuse to punch roads into wilderness.
