One of the BIG hidden cost draining our budgets is vandalism! Maybe some think this is fun or funny. The cost of replacing gates, shot up signs & rescuing people where they don't belong because they went beyond barriers is EATING Our FUNDING Alive!! Don't like the gates? Learn more why they are there.  Sometimes gates are put there to protect the road and sometimes to protect the driver!  It only takes a couple of people who are abusing our backcountry to ruin it for everyone else because of how much it cost out of an already dwindling budget to pay for the damages.  See something then consider saying something! Don't want more gates on roads forever?  Become an active steward for forest roads and educate others to do the same. Better yet consider joining us, a group that says no to abuse of our backcountry!  We don't just think about it, we work darn hard for our roads and we speak up for them!
