I agree with some of those earlier comments, You need to go off the beaten path to see some of the real beauty of yellowstone.
Yup - people, no matter what type of transportation tehy use, cause erosion.

What the environmentalists often forget - animals do too. it is natural, eh?

wow this thread took a severe wrong turn somewhere. if people don't want to wheel in michigan fine. if people do, equally as fine. not everyone wants to go out and roll their rig. not everyone wants to cruise a two track looking at nature. neither is right or wrong.

I have never been to Drummond Island but I'd sure like the chance to go. I just hope that these two who did this will be looked as the exception and not the whole face of off-roaders. I would sure hate to see the park closed because of what they did.

Please change the title of this thread, it is misleading. It should say something like "Jail time for being a law-breaking inbred jackass on Drummond Island".

kthxbye

x2, people have different tastes in four wheeling. Just don't start talking about banning a place I like to go to. I personally love wheeling the public trails on drummond, if some people don't thats fine. wheel were you want just leave my legal wheeling spots alone.

x3, I highly doubt the park will close, but im sure this set back the progress on getting the trails on drummond designated as orv routes. As well as getting the marble head steps designated as a legal obstical.

Definately not locals. I live here and have never heard of them. I do know the judge, though.

I hope they don't have kids. It's sad to think of what people like these do to the gene pool.

I was sent this link today.... thought I'd pass it along for of you who care to view it.
Actually most of these photos were from out on Maxton plains. (Same group their prior trip to the island) I hate to see this shit happen but you have to admit it sure helps make a strong point. The name of the web site says it all.

Just something else to be aware of.. these folks don't like you or want you in their neighborhood.

I've done a geocache at almost every one of those sites pictured on lucecountyorvdamage.com Very scenic and picturesque areas, but it is obvious from their pictures that most of the damage seen has been caused by little 4-wheelers.
