I guess the new trails should be restricted to, say like 74 inches and wider?
This is of course a riduculas idea.
But I do respect the elders in trying to keep what they built. It was their effort. But this divides us all?
So do we become united, or split up to all off roaders in one group and a few who want to wiggle between trees?
There is just a teensy weensy problem here tons of people are forgetting reflected in the comment above.... And that is (by the way I'm a 66yr old fart been wheeling all my life) way back when the old farts built the tight technical trails we didn't have the greenies fighting every step of the way like now days. Nowdays NO ONE can just run out and build new trails. The opposition (read greenies) look at the whole off road community thing that what we have is where ALL off roaders are supposed to play. So what is out there now is all we are going to get, and it gets smaller all the time. And the other little point is that everyone is a taxpayer, public land is everyone's. Go talk to the folks that got their 99 year leases to build their cabins in days of old that now have to either turn them over, or tear them down or pay huge new rental fees.
So while is is nice to rant about tight trails for small rigs and exclude the larger ones, there is no place else for them to go play now. The political reality is that there aren't going to be new lands for new trails for the new wheeling crowd to build their own world.
So it really boils down to everyone learning how to play together or w=everyone is going to lose the war with the greenies cause we can't get along. Unfortunately it appears that we will just end up losing it all cause we sure aren't learning to play well together in this new world.
