I know a lot of places up Manastash got turn up unfortunetly. Just after they ran an article in the paper about how they are going to try and crack down on illegal mudding and such.

For reference I was born and raised in Ellensburg :P

Don`t blame all the westies for the bad few,
probably some live on that side too.
I did see a suzuki group tear up stuff on Menashtash in 2002 ,they didn`t want to wait for a jeep club to clear a log and break thru a snow drift to stay on the trail. That group of suks I saw at the rocks alot.
The group clearing the trail was Tacoma Webfooters and Klamouth 4 Wheelers

Don't worry I was just joking ;) Idiots come from all around. I definetly can't say there's not people here doing it. If this huge red ford F-250 on like 36-37" TSLs isn't just for looks I can't imagine it's for navigating the trails :x

hards, i've ran w/ one of the guys from the webfooters before....'s one of my older bro's friends dad....has a really nice cj7, they're a bunch of good guys, so its not everyone, theres people who have excrement for brains on both sides of the mnts....

verrive....i know from watching fullsize that they dont do so hot up there....watched a suburban get wedged between 2 trees coming down a hell....forest service told 'em they were NOT cuttin the trees, so they had better figure out some other way to get the 'burban outta there....i believe they ended up cuttin it up, or findin a couple w/ a huge winch(s)....we didnt stick around to find out, we were all laughin too hard.

We should all collect donations from offroad companies and supe up a Cherokee for the forest service so they can go on the trails and patrol and ticket people who feel like going off the trail :P

They need a rig like what El Dorado County Sheriff uses for patroling the Rubicon! :laugh3:

I dunno if it'll go over, but what if some clubs or people offered to take USFS officials out there so they could ticket people abusing the trail systems. I've seen such cooperation take place with SAR, but then agin the circumstances are diffrent when it comes to SAR.

Yeah, I had the Rubicon one in mind :P I honestly wouldn't mind letting a forest service guy tag along if it keep stuff open ;)

I would let the forest service tag along if it halped to keep places open although taking the cherokee would probably be better than a topless cj7

We met a Yakima County deputy in his full size extended cab pickup, hauling his quad, coming up a trail we were going down. He just appeared out of nowhere, driving in a place where he was likely to get stuck if he didn't turn around. Regardless, they are out there and you never know when they might show up.

Memorial Day weekend at the Little Naches had a fairly good showing of deputies and rangers checking rigs and making sure things weren't completely out of control.

that sounds about right.....the yakima county SO are pretty cool about things....hell half of em have rigs themselves, or they know those of us that do, as long as people dont get snotty w/ em they're for the most part a bunch of decent guys. luckily i've never had in runins with em.
