    New question here. Moosic Mt Thanksgiving ride

    Our friend from Indy, Crawfishy...

    ...is coming in for Thanksgiving and would like to hook up and ride Moosic mt. Let's say we plan for Sat or Sun between 9 and Noon? Gotta burn off the Turkey with a great ride.

    Here's a few pics, and our blog that will be updated soon as there are more trail miles now at MMP

    Jeff B. you might have been neighbors in Indy?

    Myself, Bear, and Big Daddy Todd are in so far anyone else?

    I'm not even asking if that will be displayed or worn under.

    Ya, we like to keep the Funometer at Full Throttle! Can't wait to hear about your local trails either. Indy's just a hop away and Ray's is in between, not to mention the big motorcycle show and the Indy 500, him lot's of reasons to hop out there!

    1) Conglomerate
    2) Conglomerate
    3) The section where the Tupilo Honey loop goes out and comes back is to the photographers right. The riders are on the continuum of Stonehenge just after the wet roman road.
    4) Genes Trail
    5) Genes Trail

    The guy in the gray coat is holding on to Betty. When you spend as much time up there building as I do, you start to name the trees, rocks, roots, birds, ferns... 80+hrs the first fall/winter. 200+ last year. 70+ this year.
    350 hrs of trail work in 2 years up there.

    Not to forget the 400+hrs Gene Katapski put in and the great trailwork days this last Summer when 25+ members of Hubbard Bike Club showed up and built 5 miles of singletrack (150hrs) in one day!

    Well Lee, you'll prolly need a new map since you've been up here! ttyl, Fahn

    Rob:

    Did you include all the pre building work we did?

    I have been up there lot's this past summer in the rain most times!

    I love rid'in there! One time late in the day it looked like a thunderstorm, so I just headed up to the top of Blueberry in case I had to bail I could get back to the car.I was on Blueberry trail going downhillI when I saw 2 buck. I stopped and ducked down, while laying my bike over quietly. One noticed me, but the other didn't and kept walking up the trail towards me. It was near the old spring, and I assume they were coming to drink. I was directly on the trail and so were the deer. As he got closer I could hear him breathing and snorting as he browsed on twigs and leaves, and was no more than 25 feet from me. I though holy s&&t he's gonna walk right up to me and it was too late to stand up as I didn't want to really scare him. I just made a clicking sound with my brakes levers. That got his attention and the wind must have been right for him to get my scent.

    The other deer turned and walked down towards the rock field on Blueberry. The first one followed. He first started to run then stopped and stood looking around, so I could only assume he didn't get my scent and just the noise I made was enough to alert him and when I stopped making the noise he felt calm. If I had been 2 seconds later I would have been in the fields area of Blueberry and they would have seen me! but being still in the tress it all worked out had the camera out, but if I stood up I had no chance to get their pic! They both wandered off and I rode down Blueberry and never saw them again. It didn't rain and I had a blast after that but it made my day.

    Gotta love that place!

    Once you ride the trails Hubbard Bike Club put in, you'll be as obsessed as Lee is too! He's not the only one who loves our work. Right, Lee?
