    Cleaned up Thorny on Wednesday, the pickers were starting to get into the trail, plus general cleanup of branches and sprung roots.

    Trimmed back the branches off a fallen tree on the connector of 5 tree to slide.

    Trimmed the hanging branches off that tree on top of the hillclimb on 8 that is hanging over the trail and getting really low.

    Just after the hill climb on 8, it arches over the trail and is getting lower and lower, the only branch holding it up against the other tree is cracking, once that breaks it will fall about knee high.

    Good job!

    7/5/12

    Myself and SS Kevin removed the tree from JKE...

    ... but left a big section that hand saws wouldn't touch, so I will get with the big cc 2 stroker wood chip slinger next time out...

    Thanks to SS Kevin for giving up some of the ride to hep out tonight!

    pics coming...

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead!

    7/19/12...

    ...I tuned the section of Deacon the goes to Ledgeview that is now called Legdeview except the sign isn't up yet(coming soon) In an effort to get more riders on this great connector I leveled some rocks and opened up turns a bit more, trimmed it all out. It still has the rock over stuff but runarounds are a bit more friendly. In case your wondering it is right at the picnic table by Deacon, and it takes you to Ledgeview without missing any of Ledgeview except 25 feet of it...

    There is a 8 inch diameter tree down right after the logover special section on 8 trail, a hand saw would make quick work of it...

    5858 is grown in bad as well as the lower section of NFS

    Thanks Ron...

    ...I did 2 hours on T-Rex2 today 7/29/12 didn't see the tree someone must have got it by then...

    ...I tuned, designed more flow, removed loose roller rocks and anomalies, trimmed out eye pokers!...

    ...and that's the great thing about mOOn, lots of super people clean those trails like scrubbing bubbles for trails... LOL

    Ride da Moon...
    ...new and improved everyday

    Good job!

    8/1/12

    Buddy's trail reroute due to large, long downed tree...

    ...rather than cut it out simpler to reroute onto old now healed section of Buddy's trail makes for a great way to reroute, as this section has drainage from the paved road not much room to reroute.

    So Buddy's is open again.

    Trail work 9/ 19/12...
    ...I got one more tree tonight on the connector of Edge and T-Rex2 and a few more on Edge, also I trimmed and tuned Edge trail for 2 hours tonight before the ride, still amazes me how cool this trail is once you learn how to ride it. It provides thrills and improves your balance! Check it out sometime!

    Idea!

    After a great ride, started work on NFS from the top today...

    ...sun was warm and shining brightly making for a super place to be at the top of the park. Found a few bees still all stirred up that liked stinging my thumb.

    Realigned a rough section onto solid rock, trimmed the pokers and worked on the triple log over, a few well placed flat rocks and you can see how nice the locker makes for a neat repair, plus recycling things that are laying around is a big plus, this way the trail remains all natural. My work ended at the first 180 turn, I'll go from there next time!

    Then reversed direction and did T-Rex2 looking for more flow and rhythm from the water tanks down to the connection with T-Rex1

    DR6 that's the killer on NFS at the beginning...
    ...it really looks different doesn't it?

    That thing broke a spoke on my front wheel last year, then I had to ride down the rest of NFS with a wobbly wheel... LOL

    Salamander needs some love too. I rode down it last night and there are two or three low-hanging, overhead "thwackers" that make a tough trail ... well, tougher. I'm contemplating picking up a small chainsaw, so I can easily clean out stuff like this myself. If I have some time (not this or next week, unfortunately), I'll stroll on 58 and prune.

    Best,
    Mark

    Good job!

    Mark:

    Thanks, we'll get that clean up too...

    ...tonight I trimmed more of 5858 up & down from the Rt 29 parking lot, lots more to do, and noticed 2 big trees down between the Flume and the Rt 29 parking lot, actually if you park at the Rt 29 lot and walk down towards the Flume you will see the trees. The one on the ground is more than 12 inches in diameter.

    NW 2 has a new one laying near the main gate, it's rotted and should cut easy. I might be able to get it with my handsaw or a few riders could drag it off I think, as long as it's not wedged by it's roots! It's about 6 inches in diameter.

    I still gotta get Eagle trail reopened and Skinnys trail by 8 towards Plan B and Plan B

    So much stuff to do, so much riding to do... LOL

    Good job!

    Welcome to Hurricane Sandy clean up...

    ...today 10/31/12

    I cleaned Thorny and reopened the other Thorny aka "Thorny BMX" removing downed trees, thus marking these trails off the list, Wheew!

    You can now do laps on Thorny to your hearts content, maybe a few well placed "pumps" will be added in the future...

    A few pics of Thorny and why it's called, nice long needles that "HURT"

    Cool-blue Rhythm 5/12/13

    Spent my Sunday on the Moon Trails

    8
    LegdeView
    GumBall
    Mo-Zee
    Peek-A-Boo

    All blown clean, trimmed and improved, a later walk through with some tuning will occur next time I get a chance to do so.

    Gumball (a beginner level trail) is reopened and fun, adding a chance to play around more in the inner trail segment of the park.

    Thanks for all the hard work Lee, have to check them out tonight if it's not raining.
    GumBall? Have we ever rode it?
    On a side note when I rode on Sunday I moved 3 big trees blown down, one on Big Blue, and 2 on 5 Tree, the one was at head level when I rounded a corner, barely stopped for that one!

    Thanks and back at ya for all your hard work.

    Gumball can be found at the midway point of Peek-A-Boo, you'll see it as I made the intersections very visible until I can get 2 signs made. It's a short fun lolly pop.

    NFS triple tree gets "ROCKED"

    Thought about lumber for a second, but with all the rocks just laying there, and Mother Nature always gives me a 1000 year guarantee on Rocks!

    So...when life gives ya Rocks you make Rockaid

    Been meaning to get back to this section, well today after the ride, 1.5 hours of hauling rocks made it much better, not to say easy, but now there is a defined line from both directions, again it is NFS and not meant to be a breeze.

    Give it a try next time your up that way and let me know!

    pic views are from both directions

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Thanks Bill,

    basically I made a big tabletop of rocks out of it!

    More updates today, 6/8/13

    Removed downed trees on T-Rex2, Edge, Dark, Go'in Up, and 8, also on 8 I began restoring the original line on 8.5 that was closed by the tornado a few years back, huge tree that has now rotten and should be easier to cut out hopefully!

    Very tiring day, but lots got done!

    Skinnys has a big tree down and Rock-It needs a total trim as it is almost closed up. I'll get thew tree on Skinnys, anyone interested in trimming Rock-It?

    Give me a call, the blades are sharpened, the heads are loaded with line, the bottles are filled with gas, the chains are sharpened and the backpack is loaded. I had plenty of time to do trail tool maintence the last few months, I am back to better than last summer. I am free every night this weeek except Thursday, Alex is graduating HS. Moira and I are picking strawberries today, gotta keep the dehydrator feed, fruit roll ups this year too. I am getting cabin fever right about now.

    I will load the truck with the leaf blower, weed wacker chainsaw and dogs. Just let me know what night.
