I thank the members of the Bennington Trail Conservancy who helped with "Green Up Day." Fifteen ATV riders spent the day picking up everything they could, all the way up to Sucker Pond, the entire Sucker Pond recreational area and across the Stage Trail to the Million Dollar Road.

"If you bring it in, bring it out"...

So, when will you bring out the oil slicked mud that you create when you rip up the trails?

Whenever I take a hike on a trail that is supposed to be off-limits to motorized vehicles, I'll without fail find some section that has been ripped up by some idiot that got there from some logging trail. And, oddly enough, that's where I'll see trash. I don't think that hikers are bringing in styrofoam Dunkin Donuts coffee cups and chucking them alongside the trail.

So give yourselves a big pat on the back, all the while you and your less charitable brethren are 'getting back to nature' by chewing it up with your redneck toys. If I had a dollar for every time I saw a couple of ATVs parked outside a decaying trailer alongside a couple of wrecked cars I'd be a millionaire...
