I'll come out on Sunday and put in a couple hours. I figure I spend enough time playing out there that I should maybe do bit of work too.
I do also still have a reasonable amount of wood that I'd be happy to donate for some bridge work, though some of it still needs de-nailing. I know one of the ramps on Tower Circle is sort of hurting, but are there any other places that could use some lumber?

Yes, count me in on Sunday. Someone post a time frame and I'll fit it into my schedule.

Streak, you're right about the Tower Circle bridge. I did a back flip on it the other day as my rear wheel dropped into the broken part where the support logs had been dislodged. Dan snugged it up a bit by moving the logs back into place, but it sorely needs repair.

I have a leaf blower as well and will be willing to come down if someone posts a time.

I hope to be there, atleast for a little while. I'll probably be bringing along some little hands to help out.

How does 10am meeting at the Water Towers sound?

If the Key Master gets there before you, we can drive straight up to the water towers, otherwise there is room for a couple vehicals near the gate at the end of Summer Street, from there a 100 yard walk to the water towers.

A big thanks goes out to the mover of the trees on Salems Lot. I rode out that way this evening to take care of them and was very pleasantly surprised to find them already taken care off. That plus dry ground allowed for a seemless ascent to the top of Salems Lot.

leaf blowers need some sunglasses, quite dusty out there.


DB, Can yoiu bring some lumber? We can fix up that bridge real quick like. and maybe a couple others if we have time.


Already blown....today is Snake alley, bottom portion of eastside, barto woods, couch, hale trail, pinelink (almost all) I cut over to, salems lot, lower brakerburner, fern alley and watkins way.


If I am not there start without me. I will chainsaw the 4 tree's, any body know of anymore? Roots, North Boundary, Backlash, and Outback are the ones I know of.

I will be there with a blower at 10:00. I have mapped out what PJ has done and sketched out some logical blowing loops for what is left. With two blowers we will focus on completing everything from the start of Bear Trap back through the lower trails. If we have a third blower and enough people we can send a pair out to Dodd's to work on that end.

I have not been beyond Pine Link So have no idea what is way out. Usually there is something on Bear Trap and or Outback and there could be stuff on Coit North & Avery.

I will have my handsaw with me, it can take out a pretty good size tree.

I can make it to the Water Towera at 10:00. Chainsake, rake, loppers, Dan's handsaw.

Just might bring an MTB, too.

Halleck's blower is a bit on the fritz...Hoping Jeremy will have his. Glenns is probably workable in a pinch. Metal rakes and a 3 wheeler may help the summer street extension descent. Its a bit rutted up.

If you find loppers out there.......bring em back. Apparently too heavy to lug for the boys..natural wood color handles.

Bear trap is good, one chainsaw tree on the steep climb on Outback, Coit Summit is clear, Backlash has one chainsaw tree around halfway.

Good day to have so many hands.

Bear Trap, Outback, Backlash, Avery Trail, and 2/3 of Coit North are complete on the far end. Last third of Coit North Summit + the steep part of Brake Burner left.

An entrance to Salems Lot from Avery Trail was also cut to make the transition easier on the downhill.

I did well, a total of 4 miles walking with chainsaw and 10 minutes of work.

I ran the all the work done tonight.......at least 6 miles of it. what a treat. South Boundary is left on the water tower side, and we probably should clear North Boundary just in case.....

Great job!

Thanks to everyone for coming out and prepping our playground for a great season. North and South Boundary were wrapped up today, and I altered the entrance to Trapper to take advantage of the existing bridge 20 feet beyond the original entrance. A little bridge work here and there left to do, but overall we are in great shape for April.
