    Hi Matt, I agree with you on respecting the trails and something needs to be done for sure. I would like to suggest that you and your crew tear up quite a bit of landscape also while rescuing some of the vehicles you retrieve from our wildlands and it doesn't appear that you give much thought to tearing up the trails and other places you decide to just turn around. Not trying to be critical but just pointing out that we all need to be more respectful. I love your videos and you and your people, and thanks for rescuing those in need, we all need help once in a while. Thanks again and keep up the great work that you do!

    I agree 100%. I live in PA and all of the trails are messed up from the side by sides. You go down them and they shake you left to right. They used to be so smooth that you could do 40 mph down them now you are limited to 5 mph. They are even tearing up the trails for the wildlife management areas where you go hunting and fishing. About a year ago the trails never used to be that messed up. Seems to me that everyone is getting them now. Also some off road parks do not allow the side by sides in anymore because of what they do to the trails. The long dirt road that I have to my house is also staring to get messed up because people think they can bypass all of my gates. The road only goes to my house and no further. I keep putting up chains where they go around my gates but they just make another trail around that. So now I have to grade my road once every 2 weeks. I also have private property signs too but they don't seem to care because most of the people who are messing the trails up are from NY. Don't you guys have your own woods with trails. Stay the hell In your own state or at least have more respect for mine.

    As someone who’s lost access to trails due to a vast majority of people negligence, Matt’s 100% spot on. Treat your trails/ off-road recreation areas with respect. Stay on the trails, take your mess home with you; and have fun!

      It's not just the littering, it's how they rip up the trails. Simply put, SXS can go faster than the trails can handle them. They whip through all the twists and turns, tearing up and washboarding the road as they go. But yeah, then they start going off the trails, breaking down, leaving crap everywhere and making it a hassle for the county. Then eventually they look at the money they're burning maintaining it and say "alright, no more"

    Thanks for reminding people to stay on the trails. Sadly, I see people go in out of bound areas at the lake near my home. They run across meadows and tear up the land. If they keep it up, the area will be closed to all off road vehicles in the near future because there are tens of thousands of hikers, bikers and equestrians that use these lands that are getting sick of the 4WD guys that can't stay in the areas that are set aside for them.

    "How can this happen so consistantly?"
    Well let's see. How long can a man who should know better go before he runs a proper connection to the battery on his Jeep to the winch on his trailer? You look like a rank amateur every time you bring that power box out. It truly makes your towing company look bad because you're not doing things the right way.
    I get that you don't mind damaging something by using a hammer on something that needs a screw driver but you winch too much to not take 4 hours to run leads off your battery to a power port on the back of your truck that the trailer can plug into. Is it just lazy or do you like looking bad?

    Same story everywhere with side by sides. I would get behind any effort to ban them entirely. I don't buy the "few bad apples" argument either. The vast majority of these people ARE the problem. Keep it up, and those of us who still respect the outdoors and our fellow outdoors people will eventually get the legislation passed to get rid of you.

    You're not wrong about people needing to respect the trails and treat them better. After they trash the trails, the trails get closed, then they go out and trash the FS roads and all the good camping areas, then those get closed. Its very frustrating

      Pretty for sure they just go when they get the call but it is over a 100 degrees right now in many places utah, arizona, and california. Most of those areas are breaking records every day the past few weeks with a heatwave this year. In Texas where I live it is normally a 100 degrees by now but I think we got their weather this year. It was 68F at 6am this morning and the high the last few days was 80F and I am loving it. Several years ago we had a 100 days over a 100 degrees one summer which is not to far from average. But this year we barely in the 70's all last week. Weird stuff happening here. We have also had 20 inches of rain in the last month where as california lakes are drying up.
