The concern is that some tree hugger is going to see the trash on the video and then the BLM is going to start hearing about it. I think itís a legit concern and wouldnít be surprised if it causes some serious changes down the road.

    So who are the assholes in that scenario? The treehuggers or the people leaving trash all over the place?

    Actually, one of the very very few times I agree with treehuggers is when it comes to litter. Absolutely zero excuse for it. Pack it in, pack it out. Period.

    I will never understand the fascination so MANY people have with choosing to bring something for themselves to enjoy, consuming it, then throwing it out into nature like the WORLD is their personal garbage bin...

    Selfish and disrespectful for sure.


    The only time I found trash at an event and wasn't pissed is when I found these tucked in the rocks at devil's playground on Pike's Peak during the PPIHC race.

    One was a pull tab and the other was the type you had to have a can opener to puncture the lid. Kinda cool find.

    Not sure whatís assholish about expecting a private event promoter using public land to keep things tidy.

    It all comes down to how they were raised. My dad always made me clean up before and after at very desert trip, I do the same with my kids. Unfortunately we see other parents just let their kids go wild and use the desert like itís a dump, these kids grow up and continue in their ways. My buddy has a cabin that backs up to KOH and they spend most of the week just trying to keep people in line and stop them from littering and driving over what few plants are left around their cabin.

    I donít think itís unreasonable to expect people to wipe their own ass. The promoter put the trash there by holding the event and allowing the public to participate, I understand that. Thereís a difference though between accidentally dropping a piece of a wrapper, and throwing EVERY single empty beer can over the barrier tape and into the trail. Thereís a lot of that happening and itís only a matter of time before the promoter has to get stupid strict about it. I wouldnít be surprised if they stop allowing alcohol altogether.

    The real shit storm happens at night and that has nothing to do with the promoter since itís open to the public, so I guess it all comes down to the asshole and his trash. Even without the event, the asshole and his trash still exist. One did not create the other. So whether or not KOH happens, the threat of drunken hillbillyís throwing trash all over BLM land will continue to persist. People just need to be decent.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
