The bug didnt show up to RSG. I showed up and watched some 35" super swampers plow new trails through the forest, knocking over good sized trees. He also ripped around in the stream and up the stream banks. At one point they were going to cut down a tree with a chain saw, but the rig came unstuck before they did. Winching with no tree guards/protectors. I dont believe anyone had permission to be here either, it was the first trip here for all of them except one. Most of the others treaded lightly. Made me sick, I dont even want to think about wheeling for a while.

I had heard that it was going to be closed. Is that definite or still up in the air?

and they'll be the first to complain that trails are being lost. No consideration for those that have worked hard with land owners to keep places open.

I beg to differ. Strongest axle known to man.

I've seen RSG devour 60s and 14 bolts but a 35 with a lock right, they go right through.

The use of the go go petal may have something to do with the biger axles getting destroyed.

I love the ease of ridiculous sarcasm on the Interwebs. You don't even have to keep a straight face...

I was told this was turned over to Mass. Wildlife Management as of today and access to the property is no longer granted from the road or from the previous land owners property....

There should be an outcry from MA wheelers. Contact your state representatives and let them know how you feel. Think about how the wheeling community would respond if they tried shutting down the Rubicon Trail. Hopefully this travesty will moblize wheelers, local clubs, NEA4WD, and EC4WDA, etc. into political action.

People are all talk but no work. Another reason to join the NEA.

That last group that went, pretty much destroyed the chance. Not practicing Tread Lightly and driving off the trail.

Now is too late to be contacting your reps. WAY too late. They've already made their decisions and rec'd public comment and none (well, OK, probably 15-20 people wrote on it) was from the wheeling community and all the rest was from green whackos.
The time to be writing your reps is always... so they know we are always here.
But, as you say, people are all talk and no work, so, another one bites the dust.

Weird but two years ago I would have been freaked out, so pissed I wouldn't be able to stand myself... Now, I really don't seem to care......
We are our own self fulfilling prophecy.

Talk soon,
