    at least, not without a video camera. Yesterday I drove up to Flagstaff and I came prepared with character letters (to offer some back up for my 4wheeling history). I talked to a really nice Forest Service fella and explained to him that the trail was inadequately marked and so forth. He said he'd talk to the judge.
    A few minutes later, he came back and related that the judge had dismissed my case and I could go.
    I learned several lessons.
    1. Fight all offroading tickets/citations
    2. When you cuss, forest servie officers writed down everything you say (thought it has absolutely no bearing on the case)
    3. Always have a video camera that proves you didn't go "off-trail".

    oops, I recently earned a citation for "driving off trail". It seems a hiker told a forest service rep. that I was driving off trail. They gave me a 250 dollar ticket for heresay. I won, thank god.

    And the hiker(s) never deviate from the path. At least if I do go off the trail, unintencionally I will try to get out of the citation, but take it in the end I'm sure. Would the other "nature lovers"!
