More support from us to him without negativity can go a long way in the future to keep up some good exposure.

When he called for the interview he mentioned that he had received a considerable amount of positive email from enthusiasts about his last article.
I'm not surprised at this quote, he chuckled when I said it.
Pat Brower, the land committee chair for the Great Lakes Four Wheel Drive Association, said, "two-tracks are becoming an endangered species."
Brower's group is for four-wheel-drive enthusiasts. Two-tracking is a favored pastime. He says the new maps will make for more confident decisions in the woods. But he thinks two-track opportunities are diminishing in federal forests.
"They are getting caught in the pinch between urban sprawl and semi-primitive, non-motorized areas," Brower said.
