Regarding the issue of the use of 4-wheelers and snowmachines; it's not just kids that need something to do. I'm an adult, and the happy owner of a 4-wheeler. It's good, clean fun. (if you don't believe me, come over when we get some snow and listen to the kids squealing with delight when I pull them on their sled with my 4-wheeler)

However, much to my dismay there aren't many places in Ketchikan I can ride it. So, I'm left with roads; or making my own trails.

There has always been dissension between people who prefer their entertainmnet without the use of motor-driven contraptions and people who do. I have to make sure I don't run over a walker, hiker, skier, whatever. They have to make sure I see them. Neither is wrong, each is doing what they enjoy.

And, (make sure you get this down) they BOTH have a right to be there.
