    OK Bubba, how about the Sedona mountain bike community reporting any new trails they spot being built while they are on a mountain bike ride or hike? Did any mountain bikers see the new rogue trail off Brewer being built? Was the person who spotted it a mountain biker?

    Maybe the guy who found the new trail has a talent for finding new rogue trails and would be willing to head up a group to find new trails being built.

    Here in Cottonwood, just to the south of your permenant digs TD, several of my local mountainbiker friends and I have formed a sort of neighborhood trail watch group. We monitor google earth mapimagery to try and spot trail builders in the act.

    Working together as a team, we are able to keep our community under constant survailance. Any time we spot someone engaged in rogue trail building, we are ready to alert the authorities. The only downside seems to be that...google earth images for our area were taken June 13, 2011. Idealy we would be able to observe these trails in real time, but Hey...We're all doing what we can in the spirit of your original post.

    This is something you could even do while your wife is driving the motorcasa down the road, TD. And with your computer expertise and map making experience, I'll bet you could find a way to get more recent updated trail imagery as well.

    Anyway, this is what we are doing in Cottonwood. I don't see why this wouldn't work in Sedona as well. So...If I come up with any more good ideas and plans you could enact up your way, you can be sure that I will forward them to you. Because the important thing is that we get everybody involved.

    Working together we can stop this menace.

    Centurion:

    Great idea. It's interesting all the supposed mountain biking leaders aren't coming forward with some ideas on how to curtail unsanctioned trail building of poorly built trails. I was brainstorming at the Bend Brewfest today trying to come up some other idea on how to track down the individual who built this last trail.

    I ran across a guy who claims to be a professional trail builder tracker. I told him he can live at my house for free in exchange for tracking fees. I told him I would teach him to mountain bike when I get back to town.

    We need to get back on track and come up with some solution to this recent downhill type trail build. For years the irresponsible downhill rider types that construct steep fall line trails on loose soil that heavily erodes over a short period has given mountain biking a bad name in numerous communities.

    So since none of the mountain bike leaders have come up with any ideas I have come up with another brilliant idea. A while back Ranger 77 came to me and asked if I would donate some money ($95) to support FGR. I told him I wanted to wait to see if ra was going to get the approval of a new trail in Flag before I committed to such a large sum.

    Well while I was on another 25 mile downhill ride in Bend, OR I had a lot of time to think about what I would consider to be a WIN/WIN proposal to the Sedona Forest Service.

    I believe FGR has a current member ship of 20 or more riders. They all are committed to proving they on on board with no more unsanctioned trail building and they want to be involved in the building of a new Mt. Elden maintainable downhill trail.

    My idea is that ra or Ranger 77 meet with the Sedona FS and ask them if they can do the decommissioning of the new poorly constructed trail in Sedona. Once the decommissioning is done Ranger 77 can give Ch3 a call and have them come out and do a news piece on the decommissioning process that was done by a local downhill club who is committed to work within the system to build new maintainable downhill trails.

    After the decommissioning is done by FGR and the news piece with Ch3 is done, I will kick in the $95 Ranger 77 had asked me to contribute previously.

    You are probably right, but if they do they get the PR rather than FGR. I'll offer the same deal to FOF, if they go out and re-due all their poorly constructed water diverters.

    My plan is simply to not ride rogue trails and to not build rogue trails. If more people did that, then I think we should all be fine.

    PR:

    You obviously aren't a very skilled adventurous rider, or your full of BS. Most all the TD haters ride the rogue (user built) trails in Sedona because they are the best trails for the advanced skilled riders.

    Recently the best local bike shop showed a highly skilled touron one of Sedona's best user built rides. The guy had a world class experience and had no clue where he was at, he just knew that was one hell of a ride.

    If you aren't full of BS you are definitely to be commended Have you ever inhaled? Do you even own a hoe?

    I am not perfect. I have done some things I am not proud of. However, as I have seen the consequences of my actions when I have ridden rogue trails, I have decided that it is best if I ride the trails that are sanctioned by whoever owns or officially stewards the land on which I am riding. It is called being a mature adult who looks out for the good of the many instead of just myself.

    Despite all of the great trails you have claimed to build, you still do not have license to do so. No matter how you cut it, what you do goes against the laws that we as a society have put in place.

    Could you expound a little on these "consequences" you have seen as a result of riding trails not built by a duely trained and licensed, sanctioned, permited Forrest Service sponsored trail builder?
    I Where I ride there are no such trails. All our trails are either rogue or pieced together roads, fire trails, foot paths, rv tracks, and cow paths out here in the desert. And while I have seen no negative consequences as of yet...maybe I am missing something. Please educate me. What are the consequences of riding a rogue trail?


    Despite all of the great trails you have claimed to build, you still do not have license to do so.
    Trails TD has "claimed" to build?" Are you serious?

    You can cap on him all day long (I know I do), but once you infer that Traildoc has not actually buit a ton of top notch sustainable trails, even I have to speak up. Because, love him or hate him...TD has built miles and miles and miles of trails and worked to maintain them...by himself and with others.

    When you infer that he hasn't you lose all credability.

    No matter how you cut it, what you do goes against the laws that we as a society have put in place.
    TD got busted for doing a one by four foot unsanctioned trail improvement. He paid his fine. Give it a rest.

    PR:

    Since Centurion told you what he thinks the story of TD is, you still haven't said whether you inhaled or not. What exactly is a mature adult? If not riding user built trails is part of the definition, I think you might be one of the only mature adults signed in on the Arizona forum.

    My bet is that they already have. It's amazing how much people can get done simply by following the protocols that the Red Rock Ranger District has set in place. It seems pretty simple to me- don't do any unauthorized trail work. ...Or you could skip getting authorization and just do it and wind up sacrificing one of your mortgage payments to the feds and have a 6 month "vacation" because you can't ride anywhere within a 5 hour drive of home. It isn't rocket science.

    I was hoping for something more specific. Your statement was kinda like the stuff we are getting from our politicians these days. I want you to know I really appreciate what you are trying to do and I hope your dreams come true. Someday I hope you can say I told you so this is the way to go. If I am still alive then I will throw a party for you. What is you favorite adult beverage?

    Woahey:

    There you go again. Do you want to bet that the FOF has done the restoration of that project, and I will bet they haven't? I will pay your membership to the Sedona Mountain Bike Club if they have and if they haven't you pay mine. Either way it goes to a good cause, right? Are we on?

    You say it is amazing what people can get done when following the protocols. I assume you are not including yourself in that statement, right? I didn't know Northern AZ took five hours to cross, how fast are you driving or are you talking about riding a bike?

    I've been sucked into your trolling too many times. I think you need to come to terms with the fact that you have been kicked out of the forest and you lost any influence you had around here. I don't speak for FBR, but the people that are doing the work in FBR are better riders and trail builders than you and they don't need your bad advice. I feel bad for you. I would feel angry and want to lash out at people on the internet If my poor decisions led to me being kicked out of forest too. I hope things improve for you when you are allowed to return. I still think you are a better person in real life than the guy you play on the internet. I need to spend more time getting people excited to ride bikes and less time playing internet thug.

    Good luck John.

    OK I will take the bait which trails have you or ra personally built that is better than the Aerie trail in Sedona or the Renegade trial in the Whistler Bike Park? If you don't answer the question then some us might think you are being kind of hypocritical.

    Being a better builder is somewhat subjective, but when thousands of people ride a trail each year that at least means the trail is popular among the masses which is where I choose to do a lot of my work.

    Whats the difference between a 'Rogue' trail and a 'User Built' trail ?


    Do you realize you are now trying to stop people from doing what you have been doing all along? You ever consider politics?

    P:

    What I am trying to do is market mountain biking to the advanced masses who want to ride a bunch of really great trails (FS system, user built, adopted, social, scenic, techie, etc) in Sedona. I told the FS years ago my goal was to make Sedona a great place to mountain bike and I wanted to work with them to make that happen.

    I have kept my end of the bargain. Now it's time for guys like Ranger 77 and ra to get all those maintainable downhill trails built to show us how their dream works. They have thrown all their chips on the crap table and the wheel is spinning. I hope their plan works before their hair turns gray like mine

    That's the problem, there was no bargain. You asked for forgiveness and not permission, and you didn't get it. Now your butt hurt that they wont let you play in the woods anymore and you keep trying to muck up the trail projects in forests you haven't been banned from, YET.

    Whoop:

    If you say so, it must be true. It's hard to argue with a person with your insight about these things. Have you ridden in Moab lately, I understand there are a bunch of new user built trails there that has stimulated a lot of interest in people who had gotten tired of going there?

    Who throws all their chips on the craps table? It seems like ra and ranger take advantage of the max odds on the pass line and come bets, whereas TD bets on the hardways / big 6/8. Learn your terms.

    GadsZooks!!! Moab too? First Sedona, and now Moab! The Mecca of mountain bikers far and wide? Say it ain't so, TD.

    Looks like we had ALL better come up with a plan. I mean...Cottonwood could be next!

    What a Country!!!

    I didn't say anyone is tired of Sedona, they're tired of listening to you talk to yourself. You=nutbar.

    Amen brother! Sedona is probably a great place to ride but TD makes it so annoying that I'd never want to ride there .

    It use to be the crystal metaphysical freaks that kept me away. not any more.

    That's why you haven't ridden sedona? Seriously? Just get off the internet for a while then...for the love of god. There are two kinds of people, people who KNOW when TD is "taking them for a ride", and those that do not. You buy in hook line and sinker each time with posts (and attitudes) like this.

    Just go ride there and enjoy it. It's not that hard. Don't let E-friends and E-acquaintances run your life. You don't need any approval to ride there.

    My. How uncivilized.

    Rest assured "mate." If you ever come to Sedona, Traildoc would be among the first to offer you a tour of some of the finest trails in America. And, knowing him, since you are from far away...he would probably also host a barbecue in your honor.

    TD can be a pain in the A$$ much of the time, no doubt about it. But get past the selfrighteousness, the arrogance, and the smug elitist attitude... and he's actually not a bad guy.

    So just chill out a little there mate. Take a couple of deep breaths... take your meds, and maybe go for a nice long ride. You'll feel a lot better for it.

    TD rides with a couple friends of mine who I consider to be super nice guys, so I don't doubt he's a great guy in real life. Why, oh why, does he try to sabotage it with the endless MTBR posting? It really is bizarre to watch.

    How is it that so many mates are viewing the AZ forum? If you plan on doing some riding in Sedona let me know. I will give you a FREE tour and FREE Shuttles. My friends Craig and Kim from down under visit at least once a year. Craig owns a company that designs vertical packaging machines and apparently the US is a hot market for vertical packaging.

    Vk:

    If I were to stop posting on MTBR new advanced viewers to the Arizona forum would not see my offers for FREE tours, maps, lodging and food. I am giving the advanced masses an opportunity to have a great mountain biking vacation rather than a mediocre vacation.

    I just left Bend, Oregon where I had six days of great riding. While doing the Cog Wild shuttle up ride Tiddleywinks I met a guy on the shuttle who spends three weeks in Sedona each spring. He told me he picked up this great map at the OTE bike shop that showed all of the advanced trails to ride in Sedona.

    When I told him I made the map he said it was the key to his staying in Sedona for three weeks to ride. He said he went into Bike & Bean to get trail Intel from them and they pulled out the Bear Tooth map and said here you go.

    When he saw the map wasn't as comprehensive as my map he said no thanks do you have something else. They pulled out their hand drawn map and said how about this. The hand drawn map just didn't cut it for him. It didn't have any of the new trails plumber Phil recently built for the FS and was totally out of date.

    Anyway long story cut short. Gary invited my wife and I to park our motorcasa in his driveway which allowed us to stay in Bend an five extra days to have a great riding experience. That hospitality came about because of one stupid $6.95 map, that you can also get online for free.

    I have been working on a new map that I will be forwarding to Bike & Bean free of charge to try and help them provide better trail Intel to their new customers. If they don't want to use it it will also be available of free online with my other maps.

    Find a need and fill it! What a country!

    When you buy it at OTE it costs $6.95. A good % of the $6.95 goes for funding new trail signage in Sedona. I have been told that possibly in the near future there will be another online Sedona map service, similar to what is being used in Fruita.

    Apparently the Sedona Mountain Bike Club (SMC) has asked the Fruita mapper to come to Sedona to provide the SAME type of mapping that they have in Fruita. SMC asked me if I would contribute all my GPS trail tracks to the Fruita mapper and I declined due to all the hard work I put into the project and because I didn't believe their map would be as comprehensive.

    When I asked when the new mapping service would be available, I was told ASAP, when I asked what ASAP means, I was told SOON.

    I will have the new Bike & Bean map done by the end of the day if not sooner.

    More contradiction.. You want it to be comprehensive but you are not willing to contribute to insure that it is.... Think of the poor tourons that get stuck with a crappy map of all the user built trails Ambassador.

    FYI. Maybe not comprehensive but it's available now. The Skid Map

    I thought Justin's effort was pretty good too. Maps and Information for Sedona Trails

    I'm not certain the FS really wants a "comprehensive" map until they've had a chance to adopt or decommision the remaining user-built trails. Is your map still available at OTE or just online?

    To the best of my knowledge, a rogue trail is one the has been ridden into existance without the use of tools or the relocation of the natural terrain. A user built trail is built by users with tools and may or may not involve the relocation of rocks and brush cutting.

    both


    Who makes the corrections?

    Touron and Lost Watch don't exist anymore, etc.

    This can't be the new mapping system, your just pulling my leg, right? I think this is the link to the map company the Sedona Mountain Bike Club is going to try and use for Sedona : COPMOBA - Interactive Trail Map

    AZ:

    I don't think it alienates more than 5% of the 95% who end up coming to Sedona because they know I am providing them with a great riding experience for their hard earned working dollar.

    Name one specific thing I have ever said that is going to keep the advanced masses from riding in Sedona? I had this very same conversation with the number one Sedona FS volunteer trail builder. He just kept telling me everyone hates me, but refused to tell me why.

    He finally said it was because I have told everyone about all the great trails we have to ride rather than keeping it a secret. He and guys like Ranger 77 want to keep everything a secret. They don't want the poor guy who works his butt off paying high taxes and only takes a one week vacation a year to know where all the great trails are.

    They want him to somehow learn where the trails are by some old time method, rather than the instant information age we live in. The reason why they don't want all the cool user built trails known about is because they don't want the FS to know about them. I want the hard workers to ride the trails and make a determination whether or not they are any good. If they are good they will get adopted.

    What is the purpose of having a great trail, if only a very select few are going to get to ride it? How is the FS ever going to adopt a trail until they know it exists and is a well built trail.

    Ra and Ranger 77 have I assume several new trails on the drawing board, but so far they haven't shared their location yet. They also have other trails that they ride all the time that they don't let the masses know about. If that is the model that works for you go try and find their trails because their having a blast.

    Traildoc, you sound ok mate cheers n thanks,

    Down here mate the only way we can get a decent trail built is build it ourselves in national parks.
    The parks and govt doesnt let you have a piss in the bush let alone ride bikes in most places, and the endless counts of greenies that think every human apart from them shouldnt set foot in the bush, its the same on the water, im a fishing guide and our space to work is getting smaller, if the greenies had their way i wouldnt have a job but the big commercial boats can do as they please,
    I agree that motor bikes n 4wd really can stuff things up in the bush, but imo mountain bikes have little impact in our bush anyway..
    Good luck with your passion mate, but not to much luck, cheers

    Calling people d$ickheads for not doing trail work is one that stands out. That post was deleted but you still posted it.

    You claim I said that, and once again it is not true. I have always called people the L word when they don't help build some of the trails on those volunteer days. I call people like Ranger 77 a hypocrite for saying he and his crew are better trail builders than I am.

    You don't become a good trail builder like me and the number one FS volunteer trail builder unless you have done a bunch of trail projects like one and I did for the FS. I don't know were one got his experience, but he is definitely in the higher echelon because he tells the FS crews how to do their job.

    Unless Ranger 77 and ra did a bunch of user built trail work where would they have gotten the experience to build great trails? They could have learned good trail building practices from the IMBA manual, but that doesn't tell you how to build a great gap jump or jump off a large log jamb.

    Wait, are they Lazy for not building/maintaing trails? Or Lazy for not building/maintaining trails you feel appropriate for 75% or more riders?

    Your act is getting tired. Sorry, but it is.

    OK CO here it is : https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&p...NTM0MjBk&pli=1

    Have you tried that other map thing out that rockman posted? How do you plan a ride with that thing?

    Did you fail the ignore class? I think Phillbo and 64 are teaching it, but they still haven't gotten the lesson plan straight yet.

    this is funny ish. Somehow all of his stuff turns into a slow-motion train-wreck and yet for some reason he keeps doing it. Maybe someday he will recognize that it isn't everyone around him that is wrong but I am not holding my breath.

    No need to place you on ignore. This is America and you have the right to your nonsensical posts. Will it win over the masses as you claim? That is debatable. Sad to think what is going to happen to you the next time you are caught building an illegal trail in Sedona. Six month restriction of Forrest use and $1000.00 fine was a warning. As for being played by the great Traildoc. Maybe, but I think you have lost more respect by your postings than you have gained.

    Man, I just come over to the AZ forum for laughs anymore, it's not good for much more.
    Thanks for the chuckles, I just lost my 4th friend this year to a tragic death and I really needed that.

    There's so much funner things to do then yell at a screen, you guys.

    I am not trying to win over the masses, I am just trying to give them a great riding experience in Sedona. What part of that don't you get? Someone asks me for help in their visit to Sedona and I give them the tools to have a wonderful experience, it is that simple.

    Guys like the number one FS volunteer trail builder deserve the credit for all the recent trail work and I deserve some credit for the free guiding, maps, food, shuttles and lodging.

    Because I advertise my desire to create a good user experience, you feel I don't deserve any respect. I don't care about the respect, I just want people to have a great time. The reason why I am arrogant is to drive you crazy trying to make me look bad.

    Riders come to me for Intel all the time and leave Sedona with a big smile on their face. Right now while I type this post I am parked in Boise, Idaho in front of a guys house in my motorcasa. I met Mitch five years ago in Sedona at the Mt. Bike Heaven bike shop. He was looking for fun technical riding in Sedona, well the rest is history, we have been friends for the last five years and now he is returning the favor.

    Hopefully you can accept the fact that I have helped others have a great riding experience and most like to help me in return. Having initiative is not a bad thing, and no the government didn't help me to learn to work hard at something that allowed me to live the American dream, Bill the donut maker did.

    Now spend some more time teaching your kids to work hard and develop some job skills, so they won't choose to live with you until their forty. That is your responsibility so don't blame it on GW if they become screw-ups.

    Please answer my question, and I will put you on Ignore forever: Why do you have to be such an ahole online to get your point across? It's a very simple question (but I'm 1000% you will make it more complicated).

    And one side question you're free to answer if you like: what happens if you lose you, what I'm assuming, numbering one messaging vehicle: MTBR?

    Obviously it is my own doing. You and several other MTBR posters seem to be obsessed with making me look like a bad person. You can't accept that I am a good person, so you keep trying to make me look bad. There is something about your thought process that can't accept that what I am doing for the mountain biking community is ultimately good.

    It is true I didn't like the way the FS built the stairs on the Adobe Jack trailhead to accommodate hikers and not mountain bikers. Hopefully they will allow some kind of improvement on that section in the near future.

    The continued use of "I". You are not the face of mountain biking, in Sedona or anywhere else in the country. You continue to alienate and be exclusive, always "I" not we. "We" are tiring of this spiel, you are not the only Trail Builder. There are many whom do it for the love of the sport, not expecting anything in return and you are giving them a bad name. You on the other hand do it for the spot light me thinks, for the pat on the back. Thanks, that's all you get from me. Mountain biking is inclusive.You're continued "challenges". I have one for you, I challenge you to stop posting you're inflamatory rhetoric and public e masturbation. Would you like me to go on? I can go on forever about narrcissistic behavior for instance. How about latent hostility and illusions of importance? How about paranoia? They may apply to you. Enough of you're trolling and flame baiting, please stop for the good of the community.

    Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

    1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
    2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
    3. Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
    4. Requires excessive admiration
    5. Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
    6. Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
    7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
    8. Is often envious of others or believes others are envious of him or her
    9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
    10. Often mild to moderate paranoia, that others are out to do him in.
    11. Predominant “name dropper” boasting or suggestion association with people or affiliations of importance.

    I would love to answer your question, but you can't give me one example of what you are talking about.

    I have built mountain biking trails to give mountain bikers who like my style of riding a new trail to ride. I have done trail improvements to allow people of my riding ability to ride the trail that couldn't be ridden previously. I have made maps for people to be able to navigate better in Sedona.

    Do you think I am an a hole because I don't want our governor to give transportation funds to IMBA to build new mountain biking trails? I would rather the funds go to higher priorities like fixing potholes in a badly worn out highway.

    Do you think I am an a hole because I did a trail fix that needed to be done w/o jumping through all the hoops to get the required paperwork to do it w/o being cited?

    Do you think I am an a hole because I don't believe drug addicts that have never worked should have children?

    Please give me some examples of where I am being an a hole?

    See post #93.... You don't get it do you.


    Someone ask you a question and you go off on a number two FS volunteer , user built this , user built that ... 30%'er this 70%er that dissertation...

    Try focusing on the question and not your preamble.

    Here in Boise, it's somewhat gray due to the wildfires.

    Now answer a question for me, how much volunteer time have you given to the mountain bike community in the last three years?

    Are you unhappy because I have helped build new trails for the mountain biking community and have communicated those activities to the AZ forum? You want me to keep the volunteer activities a secret, right? Why is that my friend?

    I took two minutes and googled the definition of humble, and then "benefits of being humble". Enjoy.

    hum·ble   [huhm-buhl] Show IPA adjective, hum·bler, hum·blest, verb, hum·bled, hum·bling.
    adjective
    1. not proud or arrogant; modest: to be humble although successful.


    Being humble is not only effective to be a leader, but it is also useful for developing your overall character. Being humble will help you to focus on others instead of yourself which is a very noble character trait and will be liked by all who experience or see it. When people see how you respond to others and don’t attempt to overshadow them or dominate them in any way, you will make yourself far more approachable. This can lead to many great things but will likely have the biggest positive impact on how easily or quickly you build relationships. People generally don’t develop bad first impressions of someone who is humble and its generally easier for a humble person to earn the respect of others.
    Think about your first impressions of someone who is showy, pompous, or arrogant when you meet them. Is it easier of harder for that person to earn your respect than a humble person? What do you think of someone when they take credit or make themselves look good at the expense of others? Its not really a valuable character trait to have.
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.

    None.. Yes... because you are annoying as hell with your long winded 30% of 70% or the number two FS volunteer ****ing crapola... I gets old. Can't you get that hint?

    I'm starting to think there was not an issue with your 4x1 foot user built ambassador ego trail improvement and that the number two FS volunteer told 70% of his number one FS trail building volunteers to kick you out of their forest just so they would not have to listen to your 30% user built bull sh!t.

    YMMV.
