We are starting to clear the trails on Saturday Dec. 8, 2018 to clear our trails. I need positive commitments for that day and every day there after to ride with me to get the trails open. Some have asked if they can use their sleds, I do not have an answer other than if you are there with the tucker or if you have a chain saw that shows some usage I do not think any one will bother you. That is my thought only! This is not and early pass to ride your sled. I really need to hear from you. Contact me at 779-5228-cell or 775-3406-work. Getting your trails open by December 16th depends on your help!

We were out clearing the trail to the groomer shed this morning. Mike Stewart, Barry Alger and my self were there. There were several trees down and some brush that needed cutting. At this point I think all of our trails have been checked. I want to thank Barry and Mike for their help! Oh I almost forgot the fact that it was spitting snow up there this morning. Maybe it is a sign?
The trail is all done. I debrushed it last Saturday, it was a spur of the moment thing where I had a little time so I could not ask for help. The trail looks really nice and will be a big improvement to what we had.
Sunday Dave was out repairing waterbars on 4&7 on Howe’s and Gagnon’s properties. Bill and I were there checking the trail clearing down trees. We went all the way to the Highway Garage.
We will be working on the “Arthur Trail” on Sunday the 21st. We will be starting at 8:00 am on the Tin Shanty Road end. Any one that wants to park at the groomer shed and ride up meet at 7:30 am at the groomer shed. There will be transportation to go back up and get your vehicle if you park up on the Tin Shanty Road. Hope to see you there!
We had a work day today to debrush and clear trees on the two trails out of the Stone House. It only took 2 1/2 hours so that was not too bad in the rain. It is a little over 2 miles of trails. The dedicated workers were from left to right, Mike Stewart, Barry Alger, Mark Quesnel, and Adrian Sanford-Wilson, and myself. Thank you for you help! It looks like with our web guy Cliff Dutton I am able to post the photos again. The lower photos are from the work yesterday on the Girl Scout Camp relocation. Cliff did I do it right?
The Rutland City Forrest section is done now. Rick and Fred Hubbard and Dave Fucci did the excavation and Bill Lohsen and myself with Dave seeded and put hay down on the trail. When the state part is done with Rick McKirryher we will go back and do the final debrushing and signing. The trail is a major improvement over what we had! I want to thank all that has made this possible. It has been a long process, but I guess we have to be patient.
We finished the project today. Dave, Doc,, Scott R., Bill and his grand son and myself was there to complete the project. Every thing went as planed. We did not have to touch the water bars that the State was so concerned about so that is a good thing.
I am going to try and attach photos but our SmugMug page is still not up and running for me to transfer photos but you can see them there. Our web guy is working on it to make it easier for me to show you these things.
Rick Mckirryher was hired to install water bars on our trail 407.When I left at noon on Monday he had installed 24 water bars and he was not to the good road yet. He was making great progress though. John from the State said there were, I think, another 64 to go by the time the get to the Notch Road extension. That trail will have a lot more up and downs until we get good snow, but as I said Rick was doing his best to round everything!
