I do applaud your efforts and the access you provide for the disabled. As a photographer, I have often thought of doing video tours of some of the hidden and splendid places I know of that are difficult for "mountain men" and impossible for the disabled. It's a gloriuos wild environment that can still be found here if you know where to look and can be very uplifting to a saddened spirit. But as in so many things in this society, you just spinning your wheels without backers.
I do concurr with Phineas that there are just a few too many that refuse (as they do know better) to respect the wild places, and so while we have to respect others use of the land, it doesn't mean it is particularly welcome. Some of us are just a bit overprotective of what we see as abuse by those that really haven't spent much time being quiet and personal with the land. Some of us feel more empathy with our woodland critters than with those that going tearing down some trail causing them to panic. We're goodguys and you're good guys. The bad guys unfortunately are always just going to do what ever they damn well please. That's really the problem.
See? TOLD ya we have common ground...:D
I'm glad no one had a video of me when I caught some guys in [unnamed ohv's] riding across tundra. I too get pretty overprotective when I see misuse of public lands.

We're not that far off from each other really.

You've actually convinced me that the clubs are doing more good than harm. The phineas T that said "duh" is an imposter. Have fun.
