    welcome

    You guys are welcome

    maybe next time we wont have so much fog on stony run...... the scenery is really nice at spots when you can actually see beyond your hood.

    maybe by next year i will have trails cut into the other piece of land as well... and maybe we will get up the nerve to try the big hill (for now it remains ATV only).

    nope,

    There was the one hill that i showed you guys when we walked over there. I think it is about 140 % grade with a soft topsoil pile at the top and twice as long as the others. So far i have flipped ATVS there about 30% of the time. There is another hill climb that has such a difficult entrance that i havent been able to get an ATV up yet. i think that one needs some more heavy equipment time. and of course there is the teardrop trail where i got the bulldozer stuck. but that one need serious chainsaw work to clear deadfall.

    stink bugs smink bugs

    you guys havent seen shit!!!! about a week after the trip the stink bugs invaded like a swarm of locusts....everybody on the eastern l slopes of the blue ridge is getting bombarded with them. They are starting to back off a little now but just yesterday the lady bugs started to join them. i go and move a board or something and there will be hundreds of both of them. This happens in the hills each fall but this is the worst that anyone has seen.

    As to new trails.... i just started doing recon on the other property... it looks like it is going to have lots of potential. with some rock ledges as well. i'll be up there bustin trails all winter. if you guys want to do a trail bustin weekend during the cold months you can send me a PM and maybe we can start a new post. The flood plain area also becomes quite challenging and quite different during the winter.
