yeah all the people against logging dont remember that alot of money in logging goes to schools and if you are against logging, quit using paper, sell your wood house, and stfu

if there is a gate or a sign, put your truck in reverse and leave

i used to build tigercat logging equipment. select cut logging is actually really good for the environment. it allows plants and trees much more room to grow. it can also lead to some pretty good wheelin spots. and most areas around ontario will let trucks in after this is done... if you are responsible

yeah, it creates good habitat for all wildlife. people think clear cuts and stuff are bad for the enviroment but every guy i know that has shot a deer or bear around here has shot them in a clear cut

as for the subject at hand, i dont know of any "legal" mudholes around here ... the stuff people hit is all vacant lots, vineyards etc .... and the vineyard people hate it when they get hit cause their equipment ends up getting stuck later ... as for you guys losing stuff near powerlines .... the utility companies dont drive trucks on 39s and lots of times dont even have 4wd ... so thats a no brainer those roads are for them to fix / maintain the lines.

saw one of you guys is from fairfield ... there is legal wheeling about an hour away, knoxville BLM land .... i can take you sometime its been a while since ive been camping up there .... i dont hit any of the hardcore stuff cause its real over grown and im a stock 1wd on street tires.

most guys who drink and wheel will blow way over .08.. i know i'm probably over the "legal" limit by the end of the day.

Dang, all we have in South Florida are mud holes and swamps. I'll gladly give these up for real trails.
Anyways, with the way SoFl has grown, all but a few places have been completely done away with and replaced with homes and buildings.
We have to constatly fight to keep what few places we have open to stay open. Our club gets involved with clean ups and community acts. I personally ride the trails every week or two and pick up garbage to help keep it clean and keep it open.
We are only allowed on certain trails and there has been more than once when some dumb *** redneck (I am a redneck just not a dumbass one) didn't think the gate or signs meant anything and went in and got stuck. They would be standing on the side of the trail and basically begging with us to winch them out. I always tell them I'll send someone for them, which is the FWC Officer. Those are the *******s, like the OP, that get my trails shut down so I have no pity for people like that. If you don't want your trails shut down, you better start doing things to keep them open.
And as far as wheeling on private property, you would want to re-think that at least 1,000 times before doing that on our property in GA or NC. Good way to find your truck full of holes.

/1 year later.


I hate to be one of the bad guys - but the issue is, most of you are young kids or uneducated adults in that particular area and the places you are mudbogging are actually access roads to powerlines and other areas that have to actually be used for work crews to take out. Fireaccess roads, all kinds of stuff - if you find a trail leading out into the woods and its been taken care of - dont go bogging/mudding on it. period.

If, however, you find an abandoned gravel pit, or some area that wont affect vehicle pass-through - then by all means enjoy it till your told not to.. but the police and landowners and private companies that actually own those roadways have every right to fine people for tearing up the access - someone in a tractor has to get up there and take care of it after a bunch of kids decide to have fun.

Anyway... /End Rant

Be responsible, thats about all I can say! =)
