.…as baby boomers age and society continues to urbanize, more and more people may turn to off-road vehicles as their primary way of enjoying the great outdoors.

Outdoor recreation ranks today as one of the major resources or utilities of the National Forests, not because of anything the government has done to facilitate or increase this form of use, but because of the demonstrated belief of several millions of people that Forests offer a broad and varied field of recreational opportunity.

A ranger must be able to take care of himself and his horses under very trying conditions; build trails and cabins; ride all day and all night; pack, shoot and fight fire without losing his head…. All this requires a very vigorous constitution…. Invalids need not apply!

I ride because I am addicted to the endorphins and to the adrenaline. I ride because the second my legs start turning circles I become a happier person. I ride because I love to feel the wind on my face and listen to the birds and bugs. I ride because it allows me to take out my aggression and anger. I ride because it stabilizes my life and creates balance. I ride because going downhill at 40mph makes me feel wild and free. I ride because I can’t cry and pedal at the same time. I ride because it allows me to play with the boys. I ride because I can go alone. I ride because even though I have ridden the route a 1000 times, I never know what is around the next bend.

—EMILY KACHOREK, US Professional Cyclist, 1980-

Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #485 – Feb 9, 2017

US-Forest-Service-patch-2014There are many great interests on the national forests which sometimes conflict a little. They must all be made to fit into one another so that the machine runs smoothly as a whole. It is often necessary for one man to give way a little here, another a little there. But by giving way a little at present, they both profit by it a great deal in the end.

National forests exist today because the people want them. To make them accomplish the most good, the people themselves must make clear how they want them run.

The fourth threat, in my view, I refer to it as unmanaged outdoor recreation. Mainly what I’m thinking about right now is off-highway vehicles.
