Once a tire breaks through the clay layer , which is usually only a couple of inches deep, the sand is exposed which cause the are to dry up in times that it shouldn't this makes the area uninhabitable for the amphibians. This what the greenies use against us and it wasd pretty damn easy to show this back at 1/4 mile. Bottom line is that this is a cleanup thread and the past few posts incl;uding this one shoiuld just be deleted so that way world war 4 doesn't start up such as world war 3 started last year at about this time.
Im a jeeper, and love to rev up and get some good runs going through the mud holes, but mudboy, you are 100% correct. To the naked eye, whats the big deal, its a mud hole with some ruts, but if it is through the clay layer, it can cause issues which enviornmentalists get quite pissed about.
I will be there with a good group of peeps...some jeeps, some H's, and cant wait to get some good wheeling in Sat night (havent been out to wharton in a bit). Maybe ill meet some of you guys there, as Ive been on this forum for a while, but never did any runs.
