They were burning it in a controlled burn on Tuesday and it was completely closed at that point, there was a sign at the gate and the ranger made sure to tell me 5 times they were burning Sandpine and to stay away. Maybe he's just talking about the result of the controlled burn?

Hopefully that is all it was. I remember ride Widerness Trails after a prescribed burn, within a week after the burn and it was kinda neet. It was still smouldering but not enough to be a hazzard and you could see alot further than normal. All has grown back now.

I was hoping to have another ride or two with Marcel - this is a tragedy

In case any one is actually confused.  Sandpine is or was (as of last night) closed because of a controlled burn, that remained controlled.  The bigger issue is that Rabbit Ear #2 is still flooded!  I am ready to install a bilge system.  Oh well.  The rest of the trails are sweet.

Just rode Alafia, Sand Pine is closed and extra crispy.  I have not seen the results of a controled burn there before, but it looks alot more substancial than what I see at croom.

Dibs on Marcels reign then  ;D, if he's gone he won't be needing it. Although we should probably bury his single speed with him.

When did the Germans bomb Pearl Harbor?  Were they disguises as Japanese?

Holly TAMALES...  I go away for one day on the forum and there are 100-200 posts waiting.  You all need to get a job, ride more, or find other forms of entertainment.  For those wishful thinkers, I AM STILL ALIVE!!!!    ;D ;D 8)  Riding my Flight like never before.  But being buried with it sounds like a good idea.  I might update my will.   :-\

Sunday's fire was still smoldering when I rode the first part of Marcel's trail and over to the end of Bridges on the Whoops.  Don't surprise me they either let$ it go or purposely burned the rest of my favorite trail.  It will return though.

They need to turn that shznits to glass! Or al least take down that little section of tight trees, or is that a technical spot? I am so confused!

Just getting rid of the dry undergrowth.  The trees lose their leaves, but you will be amazed how quickly the area recovers after some rain.
