    Trail Work Stoke

    I figured with all the negative Nancy crap going on I would start something new.

    I did trail work last night. I took my 1.78888865555 year old out with me. No excuses, no problem.

    Have you trail worked lately? Can you say you have contributed positively?

    If so, go ahead an post it on up.

    As soon as this thread turns negative, I'll get a MOD to delete it.

    I was too busy telling the wee-one to pick up the shovel, stop crawling in the ivy... do you really think that knick is big enough...? Geeez, trail workers these days.

    Yeah, I helped...

    ...a couple other volunteers improve water management on DSRF's Wilkie Trail September 12th. And when checking the work September 22nd, I ran into extrmtao checking it from the opposite direction!

    How about this.... That day you saw us my buddy's son had just cleaned all of burnt mountain. His first attempt at 10 years old and on a 24" wheeled bike no less.

    Picked up and removed many large branches from several different trails over the past week due to the storm at DSFR and other trail locations. Helped remove several mud bogs on Ledford trail and did some rock armoring. Contributed to making 1 drain on buckhorn that still needs many many more.

    Countless hours of web site work and socializing about promoting the need for trail work so our current trails don't become worse than what they are.
    Sure I have pictures...

    Back to positive news; since I've lived and ridden in this area from the early 80's on, I've never before seen such amazing advances in trail advocacy, trail building and trail stewardship. Back then we had Jim Partems book 'Off the Beaten Path', a map of Pisgah and a bunch of hiking trails that hardly anyone ever concieved a bike could travel. The sport has taken off but so has the care to the trail. Purpose built and sustainability were unheard of terms back then, now they are household words. Hats off to the many, volunteer and career trail workers who have opened so many doors (trails) to what we as the old school riders never dreamed possible. Your trail design, building and updating of old school trail is welcomed and appreciated. Thank you and keep up the good work!

    Guess we don't have that many purists in the Roanoke area. Folks around here will not use a trail that is covered in mountain laurel and blowdowns. Too many other good places to ride that are easier to find and navigate. These trails have zero usage by mountain bikers in their present form. Even "santicized" Price Mountain is difficult riding, some parts are similar to Dragons Back /Tail - its' sister ridges to the south.

    Rebuilding the DH trail in Draper UT

    The scale out west is a bit different. We go a bit bigger. Perspective is an amazing thing. Folks from WNC should travel more.

    While true, I'm amazed at what my folding saw will do.

    We cleared a gaggle of trees in BC. Again. By hand. One of these days I reckon we'll all be out there clearing hemlocks. By the thousands.

    Also in keeping with the positivity requested by the OP, I am going to take that as a "thank you". You are quite welcome.
