That's... a first for me.

Buddies spare tire gate sheared at a weld, spare tire bounced into the river and was luckily caught by some deadfall. Not sure we would have found it otherwise (at the time we all assumed tires sank I guess? Didn't think it might be floating away)

Weird day...

To be fair it didn't need to be winched, but we had to use a long rope to help with the weight while buddy pushed it up the cliff it fell off of...

Yet, people will throw beer cans on the ground and then wonder why we have to fight for public land. That’s how it is out here.
But I didn't put my hair in a pony tail for nothing so if I'm going home alone I'm not going at all.

Well it is still a factory fancy rim clad in 33" rubber. Wasn't exactly going to leave $500 floating in a river. But yeah, we would have grabbed it regardless of worth/value.

Which is why I volunteer with the largest "Public Access" backcountry group in North America. We are actually getting ready to begin doing offroad driving and recovery training for cheap to all paid members. I'm shortlisted to take the course. Normally $3500/week, we have costs down to $1000 for it and they are flying their instructors to us (Military style 4x training)

I’ve got a spot near me that I go to that’s just out of city limits. I straight walk up to people shooting guns at things and tell them to pick their s*** up or this place will get shut down. Oddly, it gets picked up. Being a sentinel of basic standards is a heavy task though.

Oh, there’s a spot at the specific place I’m referring to where there’s just mounds of spent shotgun shells and other brass. The people who leave that s*** are the same ones who break chains on gates leading to private property and trench FSRs, and then complain the loudest when a place either gets locked down or graded.
But I didn't put my hair in a pony tail for nothing so if I'm going home alone I'm not going at all.
