    OFFICIAL NRA Clean up days thread March 22nd and 23rd

    Okay folks today was a good day and the meeting at NRA went well. As a result they are happy about the clean up plan and will be out on the 22nd to supply some tools and ect. This is a volunteer clean and the trash we collect will go onto my trailer and I will take it all to the dump. However they may just have us make a central pile and they will come in with a bobcat to pickup . Those details will be relayed to me when they are worked out.


    So folks lets start a roll call for those that are going to show up . This way I can relay this info to the FS to make sure we have enough tools ect .

    Please folks lets make a strong showing to show our support to better our relations with the forest service. Only good things will come from this and it is important we show our support. Even if you can only help for an hr every lil bit will help .

    Please bring your full fingered gloves if you have them and pack a snack . I will bring a few packs of small water bottles and or soda also.

    Also if you have your own tools and wish to bring them please do so but make sure they are clearly marked so it is easy to distinguish them from Forestry tools.




    Here is the roll call list Updated March 13th this list doesn't include the 10 or so maybes.

    1.Chris(clockwork) 22nd and 23rd
    2. Daniel 22nd and 23rd

    In for Sunday. Will bring 5 gallon Water cooler, as well as my own tools. Is there a start time set yet?

    Should we start a bribe pool so we can get the bobcat driver to make some large dirt jumps in the pit?

    There isn't an offical start time set yet . My guess we are going to start early so there is time to ride also . Right now I would plan on an 8-9 am start. I will have more info in the next day or so as I get some more info from the FS. As of now I know there will be a safety meeting prior to the clean up and I believe we will be signing a voulnteer paper for the FS. Also if you have tools bring them just encase we have more people than tools avail also this helps us look almost self sustaining mean lower cost to them which is always a good thing.

    Here is the updated list minus the 5-6 maybe's which is a good start


    1.Chris(clockwork) 22nd and 23rd
    2. Daniel 22nd and 23rd
    3. Michael 22nd
    4. brigham. 22nd

    Suggestion

    After our last trip and clean up effort I'd suggest not bringing the cheapest bags, get something a little sturdier as a lot of the stuff cuts right through the bag. And the best suggestion I think is to dig that old extra 5 gallon bucket out of the shed and bring that along to pick up trash in.

    Yes if your willing to bring bags feel free. We can always double bag them to hold the bullet casings and broken glass. I will also bring my wheelbarrel so it is easy to transport the full bags to my truck and trailer if I am hauling it off. The forest service may just have us make a central pile .

    I can make a couple of sifter boxes if we need them. We also should have a bucket for lead only. Seeing how it is toxic. AND we can take it in for recycling and make bank. Like 8 cents a pound.

    Okay I had a quick meeting with Debbie at the forest Service office today to go over the Clean up and plan .

    So as of now we are looking at a 8am start and running till 1pm . We will be able to continue afterwards but the FS equipment will be leaving around that time. Debbie is an awesome person to deal with and after talking a bit I feel there are some good things instore in the future. Anyways she also informed me that they don't have much in the way of tools so the more we supply the better . So we need to get an equipment count so we know who is bringing what . They will supply what they can and supply bags. They will also pickup the bags we pile up around Monday.

    So I will be bringing the following....Also I feel the tools that will see most use will be Leaf rakes and flat head shovels. I am buying 5 leaf rakes to start it off and will buy more if need.

    A wheelbarrel
    5 leaf rakes
    3 flat head shovels
    our trail tools couple rakes, few spade shovels
    and Some heavy duty trash bags

    Sounds good, I'll bring rakes and bags as well as shovels. Might as well make a sifter box while I'm at it... CW, if you need $$ for tools let me know, no sense in one person footing the bill for all of this since we're all riding out there .

    Yeah Ken, I am in on the contibution for reimbursements. CW let me know what else you might need (we may want to score some extra of the cheap gloves for those who forget).

    I have a few wheel barrows and flat shovels. I also have a manetic roller gizmo for the steel casings and nails. Compactor bags would be good for the casings and glass.


    Can the 23rd day run a bit later so I can feel better about getting there later? I have to do some care taking until about 11, so I won't get to be there until noon.

    Michael YARES, no 'n' please, yares like mares, not yarnes like in barnes....thanks.

    Moses C was saying he was going out on the 22nd and maybe a couple others. He is bringing a couple wheel barrows and such too.

    I am going by there tomorrow to drop a wheel barrow, couple flat shovels, leaf rake and a magnetic roller gizmo. Not sure where to stash them though.

    I have family in town on Sunday afternoon as it turns out, so maybe I can get done with old dad and make an appearance inbetween.

    Thanks again

    I'll bring a couple shovels, yard rakes, and some trash bags. I can probably score a big landscaping rake too. Do we need another wheelbarrow?

    Oh, and can this "Moses C" character be referred to as the "OTHER Moses"?

    Yeah we should have another wheelbarrel if possible. Mike I think you can find an overgrown area or over by the tree gap in the wash behind it . Thats a pretty good spot.

    JIC this is the tree gap .

    I can't remember his name, but if anyone knows how things turned out for our friend on the hardtail DJ bike, I hope he's feeling alright! Seems like a descent turnout and although many got bored of raking bullet casings before 1 o'clock, I think we made a dent!

    Yes it was a good turnout and it looks much better out there now . I have some pics I will post in a bit.


    BTW we are out of large heavy duty bags. I will pick up a box. But fear we may need another.

    I want to THANK everyone who showed today! I feel alot was accomplished today and there is a visual difference just from today . Of course it will take a few more cleanups to really cleanup out there. But we have had great start making a good dent with around 15people showing today.

    Alot ! thats and understatement Don't worry there will always be shells to be picked up.

    As you walk thru the pit you can definetly tell where we stopped today. Goes from clean to shells and glass everywhere.

    [QUOTE=ruppguts]I can't remember his name, but if anyone knows how things turned out for our friend on the hardtail DJ bike, I hope he's feeling alright!
    Tim went down hard, sounds like he washed out right before the double berms. Broke 8 bones in his face He is still in the hospital.

    Man that really sucks street tires and loose desert ground don't mix well. Let us know how it turns out and I wish him a speedy recovery.

    Easter Egg Hunt

    I don't think anybody found any eggs but we found a lot of other garbage. Good times A couple guys still had some energy to push up so I followed along with the camera. I got Kenny B hittin' a couple lines and then Moses making a taco. Thinking about taco's got us hungry so we called it a day. The consensus was that the new tranny after the berms requires a brake check before hitting the next jump. Kenny does the brake check, Moses says screw that, hope your shoulder is OK buddy

    Sorry but hit is mutilple times and you will get it dialed in . I run less travel and have no issues running thru the line full bore . Yes the second jump can have a harsh landing but if you soak a bit of the lip up with your body you can push it to the ground quicker. I go for broke and send that baby to the bottom which indeed makes getting set up for the trail step fun but I like to keep my self on my toes.

    Soon there will be a bigger jump further back that will send you further but landing you on the back side of the 2nd jump that is there already .Utilizing even more of the speed that comes thru there. S-line will turn into a super fast line with bigger jumps. Eventually that line won't be the line for everyone.

    After watching that hilarious video again (for the 20th time) The speed probably would have been fine, I just hit it crappy and kinda dead sailored it straight out instead of actually getting some height on it. It all good though, I haven't had a decent wreck in awhile, I was due. BTW, I dig the new gap you added to the S-line jump though, make that jump a whole lot funner!

    I'll be back out as soon as I buy a new front wheel.

    Back on the NRA clean up . I wanna thank everyone who showed for their hard work .I wanna also thank everyone who donated tools/sifters/trash bags ect for the cause.Way to step up and help out This was a huge sucess with 24 people showing up for the cleanup with only 2 weeks notice and being Easter weekend.This also shows the strong intrest in the pit and the willingness of the local community to step up in numbers to help make everyones Gravity related MTB dreams become a reality.

    I am sorting thur some pictures from today and will post some in a bit.

    Here are some pics from today.


    This is a mild visual of what the area we started to clean today.


    Piles of debri shells and class ended up like this after some sifting.


    Ground ended up like this


    After


    I didn't get many during pictures as I was unable to locate my camera for a while. But Daniel got plenty and I am working on some of those now.
