Re: Why Tread Lightly!...?

Had a great trail run over the weekend... took a moment out of the action to allow this tortoise to safely cross the wash.

Re: Why Tread Lightly!...?

Wow... how the summer flies!!!

Quick tip of the week:

Spill kits! Despite the fact that oil comes from the earth, it is very important that we work to keep oil and other fluids from contaminating our trails. Breakage happens. Seals go bad. Its part of the deal... So what can we do?

- Inspect your vehicle regularly and before each trip for leaks, and fix them as soon as you can. As if you were looking for another excuse to get into the garage and out of domestic duties...
- Either purchase a pre-made spill kit, or make your own. This includes durable large-capacity garbage bags, absorbent material, etc
- If you have a fluid spill on the trail, please scoop up any contaminated soil and bag it, disposing of it at an appropriate location (not your pesky neighbor's garden.)
- On rock (think Utah), use absorbent materials to wipe and clean up the spill as best as you can.

The dinosaur unions who protect their exclusive placement of oil in the earth thank you. As do we. Have a great weekend everyone!

Re: Why Tread Lightly!...?

nothing pisses me off more than to see an old scar where some moron decided to four wheel across a meadow in the Sierras.....it's called being responsible with resources but sucks because we cannot control every person that buys a 4X4....

Re: Why Tread Lightly!...?

Time for a long over-due tip of the week...

Labor Day is coming up here in a couple weeks. I'm sure everyone is excited, and hopefully has some plans to hit the trails!!

Labor Day also happens to be one of the busiest weekends on public lands, so with that in mind... We would like to make a couple recommendations, if we may.

-Play it respectful. There will be thousands of people out enjoying the public lands. Please keep that in mind, and slow down around high-traffic areas and areas of low visibility. You never know what could be around that blind corner...

-Play it safe. Use all the proper safety gear, and seat belts on vehicles designed to use them. We want you all to be around to talk trash about how "insane that obstacle was" or how "great that trail is". For the more visual learners... A video from our friends at Stay The Trail in Colorado: StayTheTrail's Channel - YouTube

-Play it sober. Beers are best enjoyed in camp after the tires have stopped turning. A gentle reminder that you can still get a DUI in many areas, even on the trail.

-Play it fun. Get out there and hit the trails. The forum should be VACANT over the weekend...!

Justin Lilly is now working for Tread Lightly. He is a good ambassador for the off-road community. Say hello to him at the next event and buy him a beer.
