Looks like the ecology was being destroyed from the very beginnings. It sure hasn't stopped.
Well, Mr. Horner, I guess that's a "No" answer as to whether or not your were around long before there were enduros.
By the way, the "ecology" wasn't being destroyed in the photo I posted. It was merely a picture of a very tough young man on a Harley-Davidson crossing a stream in the middle of literally thousands of acres of woods. Within hours his tracks would be erased by wind-blown sand.
That man was lucky enough to have lived to be 92 years old and he was dear friend of mine. Bill Schemel loved the Pines and gave back to the environment in ways you wouldn't understand because they involved wise, conservative USE of the resources of the Pines, not glass bubble preservation.
