    DB Reroute Work

    DB trail reroute work has begun and the first official trail work day on the reroute is July 14. If you are not racing at Brundage, please come out and work on this new reroute (which has even more flow than the Eastside reroute) which moves the trail from private property back onto US Forest Service land.

    Get Lost, Parker, & Impdude- Please come out. You guys are some of my best diggers and hardest workers!!! (I'd say you guys are the hardest workers, but the lady named Jarmila that came out to work on the trails on June 30th tops you guys. She was 6 months pregnant and worked for 4 hours in the heat!!!)

    Meeting time & place: Saturday, July 14th @ 9am @ Highlands School (carpool options will be available)
    Duration: As long as you want to stay!!!
    What you will need to bring: Water, Snack (to keep you fueled up), and your bike (as it will be the fastest way to get to the worksite). Tools will be provided

    Any questions, post 'em here.

    Out to Lunch

    Sorry Al, I'm off to Japan today. I'll catch you on the next big dig.
    Am I being kind?

    B4x is in NoMex, SoCal or thereabouts for awhile and most likely won't be there. (I'll be in Stanley.)

    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    Bump

    This thread has been too slow. We need to see some more committment.

    I will be there with the yellow mattock to get dirty. I'll be driving a Honda Mini Van so there will be room for Al and a couple of others. As always the van will have liquid refreshments and barely pops for post ride discussions. Nothing like a couple of beers in the cooler to provide incentive on that nasty Entrance Exam.

    Since the trail head has been busy lately with lots of talk about how great the new additions are, I am hoping people show up to build some new single track. A couple more sections and we are done with the reroutes around private property.

    Early in the season there was lots of talk about not using the Kubotta for trail work and build nice tight hand built trails. With 40+-hours of trail work under my belt doing some nasty bench cuts this year, I am wondering if maybe the Kubotta isn't such a bad thing when it comes to those steep sidehills. I hope those same people who wanted trails to receive the hand job start showing up to swing the Pulaski.

    To those that have shown up, thank you, thank you, thank you! I hope you are enjoying the satisfaction and rewards of riding trails you built!


    Now let's see some passion for the Meek loops! Who's going to be there?

    Buddha -

    No worries about the lack of volunteers. I get satisfaction seeing the people I do see helping out. It will all work out. If you must know, my memories of building beside people have fused my commitment to build...and leverage what resources I can to build...whether that be a load of Mcleods to build singletrack...or a pile of redwood for Ivan.

    My props go out for Ian & his crew, and everyone who has waded through the process of getting the approval to build a trail and then thrown in the hours to build it. It truly takes dedication, and a love for the ride. And yeah, I wish I could build again with Ian, Patrick, Nick, and Jim, but I am slammed.

    sorry....

    Sorry, I can't make it. I am taking the family to Brundage. My ten year old wants to try the kids race. I am trying to decide if I will do the race, not to race just to ride. I would like to do some of the downhill stuff on Friday if its open. Let me know when you plan on building again. It was a good time out there last time. I still need to become familiar with the Bogus trails. I don't even think i could find Eastside again if I went up alone.

    I'll get them up there. PM me with your #. If I have to drive there myself and bring them up to Bogus, I will. Plz be patient, as I will have to make arrangements.

    I keep promising.... I'm planning to be up there. I have the little one again but that means I can't change my mind and go ride.

    What is the tool situation? I think I will bring rose nippers unless there are other light tools I can bring and use whatever you have there.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?

    18 McLeods, one shovel, a pick, 4-6 pulaskis, and a heavy duty garden rake will be up there. Just bring water. If you are hiking in, chat with me before you go in. I'll tell you the shortest way to hike in.

    Ouch!!!

    this was a PITA, but necessary to work on DB. I thought some of you would get a kick out of it...and what has to be done to get trail work days ready for volunteers.

    Another trail work day on the DB reroute will be held on July 21. Meet at Highlands School at 9am. Please bring your bike and plenty of water. We will ride down Entrance, and the old Eastside Trail to Sinker & DB. We will stop working at Noon, as the temperatures are too brutal after that.

    If you have any questions, post 'em here.

    Al, what time do you think you'll be at the Eastside entrance?

    My Saturday ride plan was to ride up Bogus on my roadie. I might be able to start a bit earlier, ride my mountain bike instead, and fit in a bit of trail work too.

    I'd like to help out. I've never participated in trail work before, but I know my way around a shovel. Tell me, what is the recommended attire?

    I'd bring a spare set of shoes to change into, if you are mtn. biking in with clipless pedals. Hiking boots and gaiters are the best shoes to bring. Wear clothes that you will be comfy biking and working in. Bring a hat to keep the sun outta your eyes. If you have a hat that you can keep wet...all the better. The evaporative cooling will keep your noggin and you cooler, overal. Plan on getting dusty and dirty.

    Cool, thanks. I'll do my best to be there. Meeting at Entrance Exam will save a bit of time on the ride up.

    One last thing...

    Everyone should look for Ted Tokumoto. He will be leading everyone up to the worksite, and direct the work. I may, or may not, be there. (I really need to get ready for my next race.)

    For those who volunteer, thank you. You and your support truly show your commitment to our community.
