    Anybody know about this? Tamarancho

    Last week to my surprise as I approached the junction of Alchemist and the loop at Tamarancho, there is a wrecked Toyota truck sitting by the trail. Shocker. Its going to cost more than the truck's worth hauling it out. What up wit dat? Can we/should make it into a lounge? I don't have a picture 'cause I'm still in shock. Actually its not that exciting but I'm curious.

    That's been there at least a week. Whoever got it stuck took plates off and covered it with a tarp. I think the cops will run the vin number to see who last owned it though before you could make a lounge out of it. I am sure the boy scouts are aware of it, surprised it is still there.

    i think that thing was there when i rode pine mtn thanksgivin, i heard guys talkin about it.

    Even if he busted the windshield and busted the vin off the dash, there should still be another one in the engine bay (at least there is on hondas) so hes screwed.

    Oh well...

    I was out there today (Thursday) and its now gone. It was apparently dragged up the hill to a fireroad or something about fifty feet or so above. So much for the lounge idea.

    Also, I'm mad that they tore down the teeter-totter. Did someone get hurt? I've fallen off a few times myself.

    And further more, don't hit your head on the sagging trees!

    Okay, I'm done now.

    First one I ever hit was on a ride at Tamarancho, really rung my bell good too. I was swearing up a storm and got surly with someone else on the ride when they asked if I was okay (wsa sorry about that, but it really f'n hurt).
    Then later in the year I rung my bell again by running into a tree on the Sea Otter XC course.

    I feel like Sonny Bono. I expect to get threatening letters from the trees soon!

    Teeter-totter

    Yes, I saw that it was gone. However, they're doing maintenance work at Tamarancho for the next several Saturdays -- perhaps the teeter-totter is on the punch list.

    Someone should contact Danny Forer -- I'll bet he knows.

    Remember: pickup trucks MUST stay on singletrack.

    After finishing a lap out there a year ago, I came across a guy who's arm was sticking out funny walking his bike down the hill. It looks like he dislocated his shoulder. His bud rode off in front to get the truck. All I could do for the guy was give him the advil out of my first aid kit.

    I hope they give that thing a solid concrete base that does not drift down the hill like the previous bases.

    Hey Erich...

    Yeah,
    The totter can dish out the pain. I did an endo going too fast off the "boulder" (counterclockwise) in front of some MTB ladies that were walking their bikes up. Only thing that got hurt was my brake lever. Missed the tree and rocks and them.
