The Recreation HQ wants to wish riders the very best on this 4th of July. As wildfires continue to rage in a number of states, we thought it was interesting to see a recent article with Smokey Bear riding in an OHV.

It is great to see the Ad Council listened to our concerns about their 2008 ad campaign which had Smokey Bear telling OHVers to simply pack up and go home vs. riding their vehicles on designated roads, trails, and areas.
