Wow.

Pardon my ignorance to the legalities and what not of offroading, but even if you're on private property, isn't that still illegal?

Yeah, Al has been hosting that bog for YEARS. Thats Linden Road that you're seeing. Me and a friend of mine were coming home from fishing when it was going on, I didnt like that he allows people to park on the shoulder of the road. The guys got a giant yard, he can afford to let people park on it if he's going to host this event. It is too busy to have a parking lot on the road.

but its not wetlands. Or, atleast there has never been standing water in the area.

Do you know how the DEQ and DNR define a wetland? Wetlands are transitional areas where land and water meet. Whether water is slightly above or below the surface of the land, the single controlling feature that makes the difference when identifying whether or not an area is a wetland is the presence of water.
Land does not have to be wet all of the time in order to be defined as a wetland. In some cases, it will not be immediately obvious that a wetland exists. The presence of water will, however, cause a number of physical, chemical and biological characteristics to develop. These characteristics can be used to identify and locate wetlands. Catails are a good sign. Also did you notice how wet and nasty his land was, yet I never saw a single water truck...hhhmmmm, seems like wetlands to me, unless those were non-wetland catails and it was raining the whole time in the video but I just didn't see it

Well, I do live 5 minutes from where this was held, and drive by it very often. I have NEVER seen standing water on his land. Thats all I was saying.

The same thing seems to be for the property behind my yard. It's farm land that hasn't been planted for a long time. Theres no standing water, but cat tails are still growing there.

what law is that? i wheel in my backyard a lot! Everyone who has been to my house in a 4x4 has driven through my pond! Its his property if he's that close to the road i'm sure the police would have come to check it out and told him about it being protected wetlands. I know this has been going on for years with no problems! Leave them alone its not affecting you, its not public land not illegal so drop it!
