Default Suggested Brushing Dates 2013?

Well the summer that never was is over, and my air conditioner is out of the window. Tractor show done, tuck show done, and there is a severe nip in the air, as hearts and minds turn towards the upcoming sledding season. Trail maintenance is about a month away, and because those on this board are the greatest tail maintenance crews, and I just can't think about doing this without you, lets look at the calendars to see what weekends work for those on here.

We have no major brushing projects that need to be done, except about 1.5 miles of new trail that will need to have the existing 2-trackes checked for the snow branch hangers. Typical brushing and signing should be accomplished in just 2 Saturdays.

So what say you? If you have never been come on up for a great day of decent work, followed by an evening of fun with dinner on us!

Looking forward to a little "tail maintenance". LOL!!!!!

I would vote for either or both of the October weekends because of weather and color. The first weekend of November is always bad because of the Novi show.

OK I guess I have to agree with everyone else. Don't want to drive all the way UP alone.

Guessing and hoping that's the short cut from Moran back to the western loop from the RR grade.

I have several small ones in the works.
I have one approved we are brushing/signing and opening this year.

I have verbal approval on 2 more, we may have time to get one of those open for this season - depending on my schedule. The other is a connector to the Mackinac Bridge Viewing park. It is approved but I need $$ to build it. Not sure when that one will happen.

I also have 3 others planned, and they all require USFS approval, so will be a process to get them in. I have high hope for one (which is actually a re-locate). One is a 50/50 shot. One is a long shot - we will see how friendly they are when this all gets presented.

I will make up a press release at a later date.

COLD here the last 2 mornings!

I sense a reunion amongst friends. Could beer be involved? Perish the thought.

Edison Road????? I ran the quad over there in August, that would be a NICE alternative to the "Ditch"

The gates were open, so off we went.
