    8/26/2017 imtbtrails Maintenance on Golden Eagle...
    What would @Maddog , @Voodoo Tom , and I have in common on a Saturday? Well Trail Maintenance on Golden Eagle of course. This was no everyday run this took strategy and tenacity as the section we wanted to work on was no where near a road or simple access.

    We ended up meeting at the Sawmill 7N23 Forestry Road off of Pine Canyon Road. We met there at 8:00am, consolidated in my truck, and then drove up 7N23 for a solid hour to get to the area we wanted to work on.

    Then we spent 5 hours doing trail maintenance, then drove another hour back to our original rendezvous point.
    Those guys busted their azz today. We nearly got 1/2 a mile of serious trail trimming completed. @Maddog brought a 4 stroke gas extended hedge trimmer that did a great job. I tried for about 2 hours the night before to get "THE BEAST" running but to no reliable avail. I think "THE BEAST" has seen its last day of trail work.

    Anyway I'm sure everyone drug a beer into the shower with them once they got home. I know I'm pretty tuckered out!

    The section we worked on:

    Maddog claims this is as far as he can lift his arm.

    Thanks. I always donated forearm skin on that section. Somebody even got a piece of my shredded skin/blood on their arm too! Nasty!

    I don't see any ORANGE paint warning me of upcoming pebbles or brush stumps. Please go back and complete the job :laugh:

    Wow. Well, I've only ridden there once, and may never ride there again - but props to your crew for getting out to make it that much more enjoyable. I do recall getting my arms tugged a lot. It's a great local trail for you guys! :thumbsup:

    My delts, lats, tris and bis are all saying "Why did you do that to us todayo_O?!?!?!? Now it's their payback time! Hope I recover before hoops night on Thursday! I have had some liquid pain killers but beer in the shower:confused:? Hope you didn't pull a Cosmo Kramer and whip up a big salad in there too:gag:! Great time working on a truly great trail! Hope they fix the other end of the road so it's easier to get to next time:rolleyes:!
