    The bridges in Skunk were in brutal shape something maybe a trail repair day could fix. While we're at it should probably fix bridges in Big Meany. Maybe some new ladder bridges that a variety of trail users could use.

    ravenshoe features have always come and gone... who's the land manager and what forestry/county/region department they work for? simcoe? would be interesting to build a wagon wheel loop with a few features. use some of that cedar in there, demonstrate woodsman skills...

    something like this but more hd...

    I've heard there will be a build day at Ravenshoe at the end of the month, assume these older structures were taken down to be replaced.

    right on cue. really none of your business. but i will entertain you, alot of land around here is owned by wealthy individuals/groups, companies, etc... i had the privilage of taking the jeep into one area and might even be able to hold a jeep event (kinda like "sweet peas"). it pays to get to know them through social/philanthropist dealings as well as business activities. be respectful, and show some stewardship. you would be surprised.

    by the way what is the intention of your post other then just knowledge?

    The one teeter-totter (on skunk?) went left to right about as well as it went up and down. There used to be a lot more challenging features in there.
