trash on the trails

wheeling in JV over new years I noticed a lot of trash on the trails, mostly beer cans, and quite a ways up the trails so we cant say it was from other than rock crawlers, litter bugs suck

I saw alot also.. I realized that all i can do is just pick up what i see on the trails as i go.... I am not going to argue with anyone, it does no good...

After last weekend i think i need to get one of those linemen bags on the buggy to throw trash in.....

There, fixed it for ya....

Sure it wasn't from your rig?!






j/k


But on a serious note, if we want to do everything possible to help win this battle to save Johnson Valley OHV as we know it, we all need to be good stewards to the place.
We can't afford to be mindless pigs at this point in time

Thats all I do, pick the cans and water bottles up that I see. Found a half used fire extinguisher on the middle of Claw Hammer Saturday night sitting on a rock.

not only the trails.. but the lakebed is worse.. it amazes me what people try to burn...

i always pick up more on the lakebed than the trails.. yes i police call my area when i arrive and get all the nails and other crap off of the lakebed.. not just the trails..

I have a big magnet that I let the little guys drag around camp.
I'll even pay them for each nail they drag up.

But as far as the trash goes, I have sat thier waiting for a group to move and watched people just toss cans.... that is why I do bring a trash bag with me on the trail.

I that happen on a night run a few months back, guy tossed his empty beer can right in front of me. I walked over, picked up the can, handed it back to him and kindly said: "I have a trash bag on my rig you can use anytime, but if you litter on the trail, this place will get shut down for all of us." The guy said he was sorry (pretty sure he had more than a few) and that was it. Sometimes we all need a reminder now and then.

I usually carry a mesh laundry bag that I hang out back and I let everyone in my group know they are free to use it.

Coming back out from Soggy Dry Lake (wasn't exactly DRY ) after New Years, we saw the line of rigs going around an obstacle on Bessemer Mine Road about 1/4 mile from the hwy. When we got closer we saw it was a black hefty trash bag scattered in the middle of the road. Everyone was just driving around it. My buddy pulled over and I stopped behind him. We spent the next 15 minutes picking up someone else's trash, turkey carcass, turkey neck, mashed potatoes, paper plates, half empty bottles, DIRTY F'in DIAPERS and WIPIES covered in SHIT, while our families waited in the trucks. Only one other rig stopped to help, Thanks for the GIANT garbage bag, we were screwed without it. All the others just went around, some of them laughing as they passed by.

The only thing you should leave in the desert is piss and ashes (no nails please, got one in the sammi this trip as well)...

Other than that, the weather was great. My daughter learned how to ride her quad, and my wife learned how NOT to ride a 50

Looks like she needs to learn to put a helmet on.

just because the bike is small doesn't mean you cant smack your head and get hurt or killed.

Ya, that's Darrel. I recognize the front of his Jeep...whereas he's always behind me, and pulling cable off my back corner.

Thought that might draw ya out. Thought you already forgot your password

BTW, not broke, just putting in a new DOA motor...just waiting for it to arrive.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't you ALWAYS trailered your rig to the lakebed?

Meeting at Means this Saturday (FOJV)...ya going? 3-day weekend

DOA Racing Engines = "Dominating Other Attempts." And it's by choice...not BROKEN! ...anyways..

As Bob says, KOH is our next planned trip...You in?
