I learned a lesson today that all you experienced riders probably already know. I have not seen a post on this so I thought I would share it for the newbies. I had to winch a log out of the trail today. The log was in muddy water and mud. I used a tree saver strap around the log and cleared the trail. When I finished my tree saver strap was covered in mud. I had no choice but to put it in my storage box and get other stuff muddy. Henceforth I will carry my tree saver strap in a garbage bag so that I can store it muddy without contaminating my other supplies with mud.
