Great Pics!

A HUGE THANK YOU! to all of our volunteers! Also a special thanks to Deuce x 1/2, Fullsize4life, frdtrckmnrich and ksejeeper for hooking us up with the equipment. We couldn't have done it without you!

This was a very large undertaking consisting of blocking illegal side trails and filling/retop-coating a pretty substantial hill. The road is open for use, but please Tread Lightly! The fresh work is still soft and needs time to settle in to place.

Well, was your question answered? Thank you so much for staying till the end and bringing your tractor. We needed every piece of equipment and then some. Yeah, Rich, we're glad you brought it.

Wish i could have stayed longer. Tractor is going in this week to see what the hell is wrong with the hydro pump. That thing was getting to be on my nerves.

Well, now that everyone's rested and recovered ...

Does this type of project interest folks? There are a few more roads in the area that could use similar work to keep them open and passable. They would combine into a nice little loop out and back from the SL area.

Now that you've seen the scope, should I work toward doing this elsewhere, or was that more than people want to do again?

This was a huge undertaking. We would need more commitment, equipment and planning to tackle something like this again. I think the short notice didn't help as a lot of people including us plan our weekends kind of tight. This just happened to be a weekend we hadn't committed our time somewhere else.

X2 on timing. That Saturday just happened to work out as other plans that were well in advance fell through. Saturdays are SO HARD for me to get scheduled off its ridiculous.
