I looked at my map. If 10% or more of the area in the State one lives in is National Forrest or BLM, then one should get a 4 wheel drive. Public land is MY land. I can't get to most of my land on paved roads (except for the lot where I live in the City) on smooth dirt roads. I can get to my land on rocky snowy slippery extremely steep roads that you must drive less than 5 mph. That's about as slow as I can jog or walk fast. With a 4WD in the one of the right States (in my case I'm now retired and in California) an average Joe has a bigger lot to play on than a millionaire on his own ranch. In other words when it comes to real estate, I am better off than Bill Gates is if he does not have a jeep or something like that.
And all I own is an average city lot, nothing else. Except all that free public National forest and BLM that covers 10% of California and 90% of nearby Nevada. And a 4WD truck.
