I was thinking the same thing. hmmm...

RE: AA1PR's M416 Trailer Build
You would have to have someone spend the time to search out trails and narrow down what's worth it and what's not. Then do a journal and create coordinates. The only problem is that hiking trails are earth friendly and will be around forever... but 4x4 trails open and close on a yearly basis.... so I could see it becoming hard to maintain a strict trail list that had the potential of staying open for decades. Probably one of the reasons the ultimate adventure always picks new spots. But it would be awesome to create such a task. it could have the potential of becoming an offroad tradition.

sorry the emblem upset you guys, I see it as nothing more than say a decal like most forums have, if you're not part of that group its usually useless to others

theres always W2W https://where2wheel.com/component/paypla...=subscribe for those that need help in finding trails to wheel, I thought that site was odd

sadly most of our trails over here are being gated as fast as you turn around, just another great trail yesterday was gated that went for about 15 miles over the mountain for no rhyme or reason

Not upset at all. Just trying to figure it out. It would be cool though if it had something behind it even if it was to support a club or a cause though.

I agree, but its a visual aid I guess to spot others interested in overlanind

RE: AA1PR's M416 Trailer Build
Not upset by the emblem at all man, I think it is pretty cool and well made, my apologies if it came out the wrong way. But it's because of how unique it is that I was highly interested in looking into it. Not a lot of people are going to have them so that makes it unique in its own way as well... I was just going off on a tangent cause they really should having something simular that is awarded. It would be more like.... you saw a particular emblem on a vehicle and you know that, that vehicle must have traveled all over the US To have obtained it.

I have a feeling other people that know nothing about the overland website will ask you the same questions Thinking there must be a deeper meaning.... so if it were me, I'd make up a different bad ass story everytime!!!! Big Grin and video tape your story and their reaction, and then post it on this forum!!!!!

Okay now back to the trailer build!!!!

I use to run two spares back when I lived/wheeled in AZ. Out here I haven't bothered with it because we're always on someone's land. Don't need to worry about being stranded like I did in AZ.
