There are a lot of folks who don't like the term "Off-Road" because there's something of a battle going on for access to public lands, a lot of very difficult roads (which are still legally roads) get closed off permanently and then nobody can realistically visit those places. That's why you'll usually see me using the phrase "Off-Pavement" even when I'm talking about very serious terrain that requires 33"+ tires, locking differentials, skidplates, etc. and saying "Off-Road" generally only when referring to tooling around on somebody's private property with permission.
It's not just the government, it's cowardly people like this constantly trying to close other areas to get their own form of revenge on a society that in their little minds has wronged them. http://www.coueswhitetail.com/forum...creek-road-fr-203-permanent-closure/?p=666033Places like the Glamis Dunes in Imperial County California are quickly becoming smaller
It seems some Gov't Agency wants to keep some kind of brush from disappearing
So they keep closing off more & more area from Off Highway Driving
That is a friggin' shame right there. Not only ruins the availability of off roading for us, but also shows the true lack of intelligence and respect of some people. :doh:After the next rain no one is going to know you did donuts in a wash. It's the mountains of garbage that dirtbags leave out there that is the concern.
