WMOTA President’s Message

Welcome to the White Mountain Open Trailers Association’s (WMOTA) web
site. WMOTA is a private non-profit social club for adults, a 501(c)7
organization. The Club is dedicated to promoting fun, safe and responsible OHV
riding in the White Mountains of Arizona. Quads and Side-by-Sides are
welcome. We are not a jeep club. Riders’ OHVs must be street legal. See
https://azstateparks.com/ohv-laws-regulations for these requirements.
The Club normally meets for business on the second Thursday of the month from
April through October. Our monthly ride is then typically on the third Saturday
following the meeting somewhere in the White Mountains. Many of our
members will RV camp, usually a dry camp, at the monthly ride site and ride on
Thursday and Friday in addition to the official Saturday ride. The Club may also
offer unofficial rides like a fall foliage, a night or a lunch or dinner ride. It’s a great
way to meet others interested in OHV riding. From time to time members will
organize unofficial rides out side our local riding area to Utah, Colorado or
warmer locations during the cooler months here in the mountains. In short, if
you’re interested in OHV riding the Club is a great way to meet and ride with
others who also enjoy OHV riding.
WMOTA also is working closely with the US Forest Service to maintain and extent
the Maverick Trail. Maverick is currently 50 miles in length and runs from Clay
Springs to Pinetop-Lakeside. There are proposed extensions west bound to Heber
and east bound to Springerville.

There are many methods to improve your Mac performance. First, you can open the Activity Monitor to check the memory utilization issues. Choose Quit to end the process you are experiencing. You can click Quit if the process takes up too much memory. It is possible speed my mac to use the System Memory tab as well to see if there are any processes that run slow in your Mac.

Another cause of your computer’s performance being slow is CPU. It is recommended to close any application that uses too much CPU. In order to do that, start the Activity Monitor and press the “X” button underneath the small window’s buttons. It is possible to use Google to search for the applications that consume too much CPU power if you aren’t sure the ones. It will give you a pretty good idea of what applications cause your Mac to slow down.

If your hard drive has been overloaded the drive can also trigger the Mac to slow down. The operating system can run slower if you have several programs. You can delete files you don’t use or move them to another drive. Open Activity Monitor to see a listing of all running processes on your Mac. A few errors should be apparent – they are an indication that your Mac is running too many programs at once.
