yeah for sure, unless a specific site of significance or sensitivity is actually run over, the sands of time erase a rally footprint quickly.

For Yilgarn Rallye we had to demonstrate that to the WA dept of Conservation, within 3 months its hard to see anything and 12 months almost impossible

but for Ecuador the environment and related issues was part of the mandate that put them in power so its big on their minds
