"with the flow of the bikes" I have little problem with. This lady was coming right at me around a blind curve. Had I hit her, who would have been at fault? Probably me, eh?

I also have an issue with the deer in the park. For some reason recently they have been hanging out on the trail. I say we shoot the deer and get on with our lives. Everyone with me?

Just kidding, deer are cool! Don't sick PETA on me!

Some of the new trail put in this year was routed on already existing deer trials. :shock: So it looks like we are going have to share it with them. 8) :lol: Besides it there trail anyway! :lol:

Was out at Maybury today and saw 2 DNR officers walking the trail and trimming it. Most of the stuff they were taking down were the low hanging branches and some of the trees hanging over the trail. They skipped the low hanging one toward the end of the trail. Not sure if they came back for it.

The deer are too cool!!!! Two years ago I was whipping down the trail and spooked one and he skampered of only to find ou that he planted himself right were I was turning and I slammed em up and her hind quarters were the only thing that stopped me from endoing into the dirt. Thank God she was turned side ways :shock:
Some people are alive today simply because it's against the law to kill them.......

DNR helping out...I was told the DNR was helping us take out the downed tree in the Sanatorium this weekend. I also asked about fixing the low hanging tree at the end of the added loop (boy scout bridge area).

For those riding this section, be careful when you go under the low hanging tree as it has Poison Ivy on the underside (vine form)...

You mean the one they took out?

BTW, the tree at the end of the extendo loop is gone. As is the downed tree in the new reroute (bypassing the old downhill before the end of the trailhead)

Mayburry is great today (8/26/04)

I just hit Mayburry and last night's rain didn't seem to have affected the terrain that much. The sunny day really helped though. Have fun.

I rode out there this afternoon. Couldn't've asked for a better day. The trail was in beautiful shape, the colors are bursting out, and the weather made it all worthwhile.

Dave and I had a good meeting with Maybury staff today. We have several projects slated for late this season or early next year to get rid of some of the annual problem spots (mostly wetlands) and work towards and advanced loop or by-passes.

We'll keep everyone informed as to progress and workdays.
