Got out to Dragon's Tail yesterday dragging my chainsaw through the wet snow and found three leaner trees.
One was fine as it's securely? wedged in the crotch of another tree at the top, but the other two had to go.

The first one went easy as it was hanging at the right angle (and it's pieces would make a good log pile), the other one was a chess game
because it was leaning on two smaller trees under pressure. The top of it is still hanging there all caught up in the upper branches around it.
Cleared a few face slappers as well. Nice quiet sunny day to be out there, lots of foot prints, no FAT tire marks.
I love mountain biking because I haven't found anything that is more FUN !!
Of all the paths you choose in life....make sure some of them are DIRT !!

Commuting miles in 2012 = 1065
Total road/trail miles = 2800
Number of rides = 152
Trails ridden = 28 different in MI, 2 in Oregon

Rode with Chris from ypsi, Dave B., my friend Kevin on his skinny tires and the trail was nice. Snow covered with ice in spots.

Sorry we missed you Travis. I'm sure we'll do others.

Dave actually did post ahead of time in the "ride announcements" forum: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=127488
