    California land under federal control:



    The California Coastal Commission boundaries:



    Location of Malibu:



    Malibu lies within the jurisdiction of the CCC and nowhere near any federal land.

      Which one? I worked part time for an independent logger one summer logging in the W. Cascades along the upper Skagit and "Stilly." Maybe we stumbled across each other at some point? Terrible what happened at Oso. I knew people who lived there. Good lord the falls at the base of White Horse Mtn. were gorgeous. I still miss going there.

        Good. Then you will know how to split a second growth Doug Fir for firewood using only two axes. The old logger I worked for showed me how. Never could run the skidder properly. Not enough practice I guess.

            No were near...are you a 2nd LT? NPS shown in Green controls the land from Malibu east into Los Angles Country and looks like a small parcel of DoD land as well.
