How many of these silly vehicles are actually out there? The propaganda material recently posted wants us to believe they are a major presence/threat, and so all off-road access must be prohibited. Has there been any data presented? How are these things registered with the state?and this one which shows the two trucks from the video in it. But one is a chevy and the other a toyota.
There are quite a few more than just those 2, but they have become the 'poster children' of the PPA's continuing MAP campaign.It has been my experience and observation that both Jason and Al do not have ANY desire to acknowledge this point of view but rather go to the extreme stance employed by the recent brochure.
I wish it all could be that easy. I think we all can agree that type of land abuse displayed on the links in this post cannot be tolerated in the pines. However, the PPA propaganda clearly attacks all ORV pine barren access in general, including the responsible, conservative users and enthusiasts exploring our beloved pines. Instead, efforts and focus should be directed at preventing these types of abuse thru enforcement rather than publishing an overly dramatic presentation advocating a thinly veiled message in advocating for the very unpopular and restrictive MAP initiative that would only impact and hurt the law abiding, pine loving enthusiast. As I type this response, it is eerily familiar with the tactics used to erode our constitutional 2nd amendment rights. It has been my experience and observation that both Jason and Al do not have ANY desire to acknowledge this point of view but rather go to the extreme stance employed by the recent brochure.

Wow nice work Teegate!
I would agree with you on the picture's location. Nice work by the way. I know the one photo had a posting date of 2017.
It does not take much effort to move one out of the way. If it is naturally fallen is one thing, purposely cut another. I carry my small battery powered chain saw that works quite well; slow, but faster than a handsawNow I have wondered aloud whether the state choosing to not clear fallen trees on some roads is their way of 'closing' a road without closing a road, but that is just my two cents.
Thanks, bookmarked to read at length.Jersey Girl, Ben's excellent article is a very good starting point, posted by 46er previously.
