I agree 100%. Interestingly enough though, the remote locations we get into and out of we rarely see any trash. Except one time as we meandered down a canyon heading south out of Joshua Tree we came upon an area that was completely trashed by target shooters. I about threw up. My wife was enraged. We passed by a small group, ignored them and continued on. One of the most difficult things we as a group are faced with is our inability to delineate ourselves from the low life weekend warriors. There is no help from corporations either as the TV commercials about Jeeps conquering nature, or the Bronco blazing new trails are extraordinarily damaging to us, the purveyors of Tread Lightly & Leave No Trace ethics, and to our collective reputation.Sadly, many are not good ambassadors of the outdoors. Leave no trace (lack of it) is present in every outing I do. Trash, getting off established trails, toilet paper. If everyone in this group committed to bringing out one more bag of trash then you took in, man what a difference.
Not really, I visited the Pine Barrens 20 years ago and, well, it’s New Jersey, what can I say? ( LOL ) even back then I witnessed more than a few bozos with way overbuilt rigs tearing it up. After four or five bozo encounters, we packed it in and headed home.There’s off-roading in NJ? Who’d a thought that!
Because they like that Powah. LOLLOL! I would like to believe there was a “beginning”, but maybe there was no such thing. NJ will retain it’s reputation as a “police state”. Why? Your guess is as good as mine.
I just purchased a regional map for trip planning to Utah. I cannot believe the two long columns of rules and regulations in small font. Resistance is futile, you must assimilate!Because they like that Powah. LOL
This is a prime reason I'm in the midwest. I grew up on the east coast (DC) and folks are losing ground in the "fun" arena.
I'll have to look at that. Is it a state map or a federal map. The Feds are falling apart with this sudden change of course we're going thru. You have to admit it's a challenge.I just purchased a regional map for trip planning to Utah. I cannot believe the two long columns of rules and regulations in small font.
