bruset said:Maybe I will go to one of the meetings. Which one are you going to? We can both be heckled and stoned, as I forsee that happening. Defending ORV's is a highly unpopular thing to do. Especially when you have people who compare them to nuclear weapons...

woodjin said:I think I will go to the august 19th meeting at the bishop farmstead in Southampton. The PPA headquarters. Should be interesting. I have to check to see which day that is on to know for certain if I can go. If so, I would be happy to attend it with you.
bruset said:The other thing to throw out here is that every year there is a MASSIVE cleanup in Wharton planned by the Jersey Devil 4WD club that attracts a TON of Jeep/4WD people who all pitch in to help clean up the woods.
I have yet to see a PPA Cleanup scheduled, or get that many people involved.

woodjin said:Also, 343,000 acres have been damaged by ORVs? Where did they get this #? How do you even begin to figure that out? I think they just make this up. Okay, you can count the pits, but 343,000 acres? Come on! If you look at an enduro trail in the woods, they are about 1' wide. How to you factor that in. How long would a 1' rut have to be to = 1 acre?

LARGO said:Then these folks would absolutely have to find somewhere else to protect. Problem solved.
bruset said:Easy now. The idea of protection is great. They way they're going about it is what I (and presumably others here) have a problem with.
