    We need to preserve what we have. Make people go out and explore and discover places for themselves. Great idea, thanks

    I am in total agreement.... I live in the Midwest/Illinois and I know it's not Colorado but it has its beauty as well. So much vandalism and disrespect for what Mother Nature has given us, if it doesn't stop there will not be anything for future generations, starting with my kids and so and so on.

    Couldn't agree more

    I do a large amount of my exploring on motorcycles and it seems everyone wants a GPS file for every trail. Get out and explore! Part of the fun its the challenge of finding areas and figuring them out. I have spent countless hours finding good trails when I have moved to a new location. The days spent totally turned around and confused are some of the most memorable. Just like most things people are not wiling to put in the work for the reward.

    I've never used a GPS to hit the trails. For 2 reasons
    1) I can't stand them because even in this day and age they are still not very accurate, unless you buy the ridiculously expensive ones.
    2) Um it's called exploring, not that much fun to me having a little box tell me I'm "wrong" all the time.

    Just my 0.02

    I understand the idea and think its amazing specially not handing out coord to just anyone but some are refusing to take them out and show the trails in person which I completely disagree with. I wasnt fortunate enough to grow up in the mounts, forests, or deserts exploring like a lot of you but instead started on my own when I left home. It deeply hurts me the fact that you wouldn't show someone specially someone who isnt local hurts. I just returned from a 4 year stint in the UK where anyone that Off-roads or there green lanes is highly frowned upon. If it wasn't for some of the more experienced people there showing, teaching, and correcting us I wouldve probably gotten in trouble for making a left where I wasnt suppose to. So maybe taking out some of the younger people to a well known trail 1st to see how they act and how they to being corrected instead of just refusing to take only people you know closely is a good idea. Thats what I have done in the UK and was highly successful and hoping to find someone to show me trails here in florida and explore myself.

    I hope you don't take this the wrong way but if someone refused to take you out and show you some trails, perhaps the problem is you. Certainly, there are plenty of people I've met over the years that I would never want them to know about the places I could take them to and I couldn't care less about how that would make them feel. Of course, none of that has anything to do with posting up coordinates here on WAYALIFE. In case you missed it, that was the point of me starting this thread.

    I couldn't agree more. I kinda reminds me of riding my motorcycle. I love heading out on the road coming to a turn and asking my wife "left or right? She'll randomly pic a direction and we always end up finding a gem in the middle of nowhere. I'm really looking forward to doing the same on the Jeep.

    Great idea and agreed, sad it actually has to be posted. My local forum has a mapping section that only known and vouched for members can see and participate in, and trail and road names and locations can openly and safely be discussed away from those not part of it, and from the ease of a google search. All of what we use is on maps of some kind somewhere, but making it more difficult to find seems to have helped, at least in our minds, because as you have seen out your way, the asshats will still find it. Ours are hard enough to find that it is more often the drunk locals.
    I also use a lot of the public roads used by the Jeep Jamboree another overland outfit, and I can say those groups seem to be very respectful, and friends of mine that guide say the same, and it doesn't lead to trail overuse or misuse.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
