As an avid outdoor enthusiast, I read this article and begin to fume. First, I resent the smug atittude of the Sierra Clubber elitists, but mostly I detest the yahoos of the offroad vehicle set that have no respect what so ever for the beauty that surrounds them in the back country. I 4-wheel, I hike, I backpack, I hunt, I fish, I ride a mountain bike, I LOVE recreating away from civilization and I HATE finding beer cans and used toilet paper in otherwise pristine settings. I drive unpaved roads near my home and see huge amounts of trash that has been tossed from passing vehicles. Why is it mostly the packaging and containers from cheap beer and fast food?
What do we, as off-road driving enthusiasts, need to do to eliminate these elements from our ranks? What is it going to take?
