    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    I hope they do a better job than the first work party... Horrible routing and half benching. Bruiser would be chanting "Full Bench, Full Bench!"

    I remember about 15yrs ago WTA blew open trails, at Spring Lake, you could drive a logging truck through. Looked like they used a D9....

    I've been through the WTA trail crew leader training school (Props to Brian Jones for pulling that one off for a few years) and on a few WTA work parties in the past. They gave me a tape measure when it was over because I spnt the whole time biXXXing that they were actually measuring the trail width at 6' with a 2' brushback on either side. 50 people and we only made 300' of progress on a flat dry trail in one whole day. HUGE waste of energy. I get that the FS wants to go wide in the backcountry because it makes it so you don't have to come back and clear it every year.
    This stuff at Moss is half that width and can't follow a contour to save it's life.
