Do not worry about making ruts anywhere when it is wet. I have ridden regularly in a couple of the places where it is considered taboo to ride when wet and guess what? Ruts go away quickly anywhere and everywhere. Rut freaks are Nazi's. I bought into it for a few since I am respectful but found that I could still ride the trails with ruts in them and then I found myself needing to ride when it was wet and went for it. I managed to have fun when muddy and with the rutted up after effects. My name is not Josh Bender by the way.
