About 5 hours clearing most of big beech tree that fell across top of Yang and across fire road in Blue Mtn and also making a rock armored crossing for go around near the trunk that sits over where previous rock work was. Also closing go arounds on Depew. Plus about 100 hours this spring and early summer, mostly on Essplanade and lower Yin after the new connector..

Joy and I put an hour in each on the Beginner trail at Sprain on Monday, closing up mary lines, trimming branches and raking out the corners.

Then Burntoast and I did an hour each down on Tuesday at the south end making some rock bridges for log overs.

About 15 minutes today. Cleared a clothesliner, hanging precariously over the first of 3 up and over rocks mid-No Way Jose.

I'm not condoning the use of chainsaws in any of the County parks :wink:
but for those that need to transport fuel and travel light this might be the way to go :| . http://www.stihlusa.com/products/oils-- ... l/motomix/

Trees down at Blue; prep for FTF, need a chainsaw for sure.

Riding blue early today I came across 1 tree down on Stinger from the upper sis approach; after the first descending segment the tree is at the bottom there. If you don't understand where, I'll get out there again and take a photo.

The other is on Chewbacca approaching from SIS. Once you begin riding Chewbacca after the first little climb right next to the other huge tree (wonder how many comments I'll get for that description) that fell a year ago, it's blocking the reroute from that tree.

FYI- I took care of this^^ awhile ago along with clearing that tree down on Motorcycle and a headbanger on the blue trail.

Little icing on the cake threw this in on my way out :wink: ..Image
Wasn't really keeping track of the time. Not long, hit it and was out like a ninja.

Awesome Torque, you rock! WMBA leverages this thread as evidence of the number of hours it has donated to the parks, which is why I try to keep it updated whenever work is done. This comes back to us as recognition as a key county park partner, which can be leveraged for continued mtb access, free time in the lodge, leniency on events, etc. Please post up the many hours you work in there - no need to be humble or conservative in this thread! Thanks for all you do!

Thanks Pete. So you're saying I should milk it?
If I need to go in with a saw I prefer it to be raining= no one around to get in the way, it also affords me the opportunity to study the science of hydraulics in other words how water flows on the trail and how better to keep it off the trail. Countless trail maintenance/build hours Pete if you only knew.

As a rule of thumb Pete, we should probably take all the recorded hours for everyone cumulatively, then double that number to get somewhere near half what torque puts in. ;)
