Hi, is there any one that would like to pick up this sign and paint the wording on the fresh one sitting behind it? I’m not really good at it, as you can see I did it the last time years ago. Let me know please.
Last weekend Dave with his excavator repaired the tread area from Dick Howes to Bridge 24 on the Wheelerville Road. Bill and Doc were there and went to the highway garage and then to the hight of land above RD 65 on corridors 4&7 in Shrewsbury checking for problems.
Mark, Mike and I went from RD 651 to the bridge just before the gravel pit debrushing the trail for high overhanging trees and limbs and we patched the hole in the bridge.
We were going to work on the Stouts trail but, Dave was through that trail resetting a culvert and he took care of any trees that were an issue. So we will be starting at the Bove Camp area clearing, that is on corridor 407 at RD 651. I do believe that it is also the Gilman Road. If any one has any questions please call me. If any one is bringing a ATV let me know also. Thank you.Hope to see you there. Starting time is 8:00 am Sorry about the mess with the first posting, I do not know where it came from. Roy
Last Sunday Dave went out with his excavator and cleaned out the water bars from RD 651 at the Old Boves Camp and down around RD 16 then to RD 672 on the Tin Shany Road and then down to the Groomer Shed at RD69. On his way he moved lots of trees that were in the way or were leaning towards the trail.
Mark Quesnel and Adrian Sanford-Wilson were with me at the Stone house area. We debrushed the two trails going out the back of the Stone house and the trail coming into there from the CCC Road. Thank you for all your help.
I was out getting lot of our signs out of the woods today before the CCC Road gets opened up. It was a cold and damp day.We have several of the wooden signs that need replacing and also a lot of the VAST signs are faded really bad. We will need to replace these before the start of the next season. If any one is interested in helping with getting our signs back in shape let me know. Oh by the way it was snowing as I was taking down the signs! What is up with that!
Scott Ryan was out this weekend clearing trees and checking the trails. Thank you again for all your help! Dad and I went out yesterday and cleared all the big trees and opened all the gates and packed all the trails. It was a very slow go it took 16 hours but they are open now.
The riding is not great but if you go carefully you can ride. There have been riders out already. We need more snow!
Ride Safely and Ride Right!
I know that every one has a lot to do at this time of the year but if any one has a 4 wheeler and has some time it would be great if they could go on some of the trails and clear any downed trees. Dave with his excavator and Mike Stewart and Scott Ballard went from the Highway Garage across the Wheelerville road to Dick Howe’s property clearing that area last weekend. Thank you for that! Also I am going to be putting up the intersection signs on Sunday and if there is any one that would like to help me that also would be great. I am going to get to the groomer shed by 8:00 AM. If any one has any questions please call me @ 779-5228.
I walked the trail last week with Lisa. For the most part she was OK with it as long as we keep an eye on it and if it starts to show signs of erosion we need to fix it. The key to it is to keep the waterbars clean before fail. The part that we straightened she said was ok also but, as I know, we should ask first. I said the sharp corner was dangerous and after the logging there was a straight line with no trees to cut just clean up what the loggers left. So we worked things out once again.
She said that after they get the “Jeffords State Forest ” piece they’ll want waterbars in some ares there so I said to get in touch with us and we will get the job done so it is good for a snowmobile trail. That will be something for next year.
