Croom Sunday
« on: August 23, 2008, 04:43:01 PM »
Is Croom in good shape? I know the rain is good for it, but I wonder if Fay knocked down a million branches. Anyone have some intel?

Two down tress on the blue loop and one on the red section which you need to carry your bike, other than that it's perfect.

About 3 million branches, but most of it crunches right up.  There was no sand today, and we got caught in a good thunderstorm, so that sand will not be an issue tomorrow. There are some very slippery areas. Really it was very enjoyable there today, you should have a good ride.

There were trees down as Tread mentioned.

We did clear a bunch of smaller stuff that we could move by hand.  The rain was a lot of fun.  It gets really slick in some spots, especially the pits.

Garry got hurt there today.

I understand he is at St. Joseph's hospital. I hear that it was pretty significant injuries. I suspect he will not be online for a little while. I think it is a shoulder and neck injury.


Garry we are thinking of you, get well soon!

We were picking big stuff up and moving it as we went. We helped Bob move a big tree after he cut it with the chainsaw. Jimbo was showing us his young back as he hoisted stuff up and out of the way.

I need to get my young legs back!!  Forget the young back.

I cleared a lot of branches and small trees from the red connector from yellow to south blue towards parking#1. If anyone planning to play hookie today, Croom is the way to go riding.
