Default Car and Driver / Drummond Island editorial is out

Car and Driver / Drummond Island editorial is out. May 2008
As I am not a subscriber, I have yet to see it. (I just got an e-mail at work from our Communications Manager asking if that was me in the Editorial)
So how bad is it?

In the editor's comment to the letter, is it me or does the editor act like they did nothing wrong?

That is quite an attitude he is has. No one told me I couldn't do it so I guess its OK?..... Wonder what would happen if somebody turffed his lawn " there wasn't a sign there telling me I couldn't drive across the lawn".

I'm not surprised; but it would have been good for them to take the high ground and tried to educate rather than try and discredit GL.

In the end, the easy access to 4x4/AWD vehicles is probably the biggest risk to ORV routes because between attitudes of people like shown in their reply and the dolts that ripped up the wetlands on DI and got jail time.

I was thinking fly to his house, rent a 4x4 and do his yard, and leave a note on the front door that reads "There was no sign saying I could not wheel here, thanks for the fun!"

I need to hit the lotto
