Re: Now that you mention it, the Rubicon and the GAGs
Those articles relate to traveling on the trails during, "high run off" times of the season, as unadvisable.
They(CA4WD) even mention the fact that they dont want, a gate, as it would also prevent "Over snow activities".
I strongly agree, with you that we need to be very carefull with the environment, especialy durring the most damaging times of the season.
Naturaly the environmentalists dont want us in there in the winter, but they also dont want us in ther at all. If you are suggesting that we absolutely do not travel on any trails durring the winter, that is opposed by any environmental group, regaurdless of standing laws and allowances, then we have already lost. The fact that they dont want us there is a given, if you are allowing them to keep us out through the use of bullying tactics and propoganda, you are playing right into their hand. Through decreased use, they can affectively argue, that the trail is rarely used anyway, and more than likely accomplish the 1st step of their aggenda. I find it ironic that, you advocate we not use our lands, that are ours to use, when it is the very thing you fight so hard to defend. Are you suggesting, that if we roll over, and freely give up winter 4 wheeling, we may somehow save summer 4 wheeling, by appeasing the envirozealots,...I think not.
Please dont ask me to give up my backyard playground until we have lost the fight, if indeed we do loose the fight. And of course I too will find another place to wheel durring the spring thaw.
Adversity is imminent, versatility is mandatory, misery is optional.
