No, Mr. Essington, I do not think I am better than everyone else. I also do not hate 4x4's. I own one. The point is that, even though I do not have any extraordinary physical ability, I did walk up to Panamint City and enjoyed it very much. Most people could do that. I do not see how anyone could imagine that driving through desert springs does not damage them. Of course it does. We have a responsibility to protect those special places we have left in this country. One can drive to many such places. Why use winches and 4x4's to get up Surprise? Go to Saline or Butte Valley or Redlands Canyon ... or the thousands of other beautiful, accessible places.
