California Tahoe NF trail work day, a hit!

Recommended Posts

What a day! 21 dirtbikers show up and kick some ass maintaining trails. We made our presence known and showed we can be an asset. Good deal. Thanks to organizers and thanks to all who showed up! There is more work to be done and a date has been set for the next one. Not sure of date. 21 is great, 40 would be awesome!

BTW, happy to see old format back! And glad to be one of the first to post on it.👍

Also, u guys missed out. Zman and I rode our work, then headed over to town and rode the Divides. Back at trucks at 7:30. What a day! Out the door now to go poke around w a saw in another forest! Good times.

Chad said it before, Dave had a HUGE turn out. 21 volunteers. Mt. Bikers, Equestians, Sierra Butte Head Honchos, and the OHV crowd. It was a who's who of the TT community.

They worked me till I was gone. All I could do was watch when they were cleaning up the last switchback. I'll have to save the Bouncy Castle till next year.

It was a great day! We cleaned up a nice trail in Downieville. 👍

Travis, I think your ears were burning.

I'm really glad you all had a great turnout and sorry I missed this one! Great Job Dave Wood and all who helped! It's nice to start hearing positive things in the OHV community as opposed to all the bad news lately.👍🤣

I've never seen so many new bikes in one spot. There were a number of plastic sets without a scratch on them.🤣

It took me a whole day to recooperate. I was whipped! 👍 I didn't move from the couch all Sunday.

I had to pull the steering stops from my frame since I couldn't make those nice turnies we were cleaning up. These poor guys would work an hour on one turn just to see me mess it up immediately.

Martin's Husky looked like it was just off the showroom floor.

The streams were higher and stronger than I've ever seen them. The stream into Downieville was HUGE!🤣

Martin's Husky basically is just off the showroom floor. I think he grabbed that thing like 3 weeks ago.

Travis, I think your ears were burning.

Why would his ears be burning. I am pretty sure he only knew 2 of the people there and I doubt that they would have been talking about him
