    DOTS - an open letter

    Dear who ever tore down my beautiful log bridge,

    Why you got to play me like that? It took about an hour to build it up. I carried deadfall from up to 30 yards away. I was bitten by multiple mosquitoes during construction. I went over the bars like three times not being able to see the other side had come undone. Thanks for nothing.

    yours,

    nOOby

    Don't feel too bad man. My family and I camped up in Winter Park last weekend right off Blue Sky trail. My 2 boys and I rode down Blue Sky on Saturday around 4:00 pm. Made a little loop and headed back down Blue sky a second time (my boys are 13 and 11). This time they were a little more comfortable with the trail so they increased their speed a bit...well some jacka$$(es) went out and put multiple fallen trees across the blind sections so I had the novelty of watching my kids go a$$ over tea kettle over the trees somebody laid over the trail. After riding the 1.5 mile stretch we ended up pulling at least 8 fallen trees off the trail. Sucks. What do you do?

    sure logs would pop out if you looked at them funny and it was totally dangerous to walk over but I don't care. Boooooo!

    Sorry bud. Just trying to make ya feel a bit better over your little childish bridge ya built and let ya know you are not alone. Maybe stick to your lincoln logs. You may be safer.

    Just seemed that way to me. Not gonna lose sleep over it tho...take care. I hope whoever wrecked your bridge has the decency to go back out and fix it. Don't understand why people do that stuff but I guess it is somthing we gotta live with.

    FYI, there was a large tree lying across the trail blocking it. About 2' high on the high side and 3' on the low side. I just made it ridable(questionable) again.

    Sorry your kids got sabotaged, you sound a little sensitive right now. I didn't even reference your post, I was talking about my handi work.

    Have another beer and go to bed. I'm, fairly sure he and you will both recover from your days trauma.

    The more out of shape you are, the steeper the hill looks.

    Are you talking about the large downed tree on Doe Tr from last spring? If so, I'm not surprised, that's pretty much a dog walking trail for Big Springs. Plenty of hippies that don't want to see any type of trail maintenance done... pretty much like their homes.

    nah, closer to the east end of blue dot at the first draw after the meadow, probably a 15" diameter tree.

    Lets switch hit and talk about some of the Pu$$y lines being created over on some of the Hobits @ W. mag. What the hell is going on. Nut up people. That trail is already stupid easy.

    on a less whiney note, west mag, reboot and the dots are a fine commute home from the ned bus. Really enjoying it to unwind after work.

    That's nice. Really nice way to unwind. All I have to unwind is some dirt roads and a little bit of the Foothills trail close to Wonderland Lake, on my commute home.

    As to the log, next time, just bunny hop it.

    Perhaps next time you should consult Bob Vila's new how-to guide.

    "Constructing tamper resistant, rickety azz log features on your local forest trails."
