Quack Attack work parties
 
Due to snow level on the trail and miss communication with the forest service the camp out 25th-27 has been moved to July 9th-11th. It will begin on Firday at 10am. Unless snow lingers we will start and finish the lower end and then start on the picnic and water fall areas. The upper areas will need lots of bodies to complete.

Mona and I will be camping up there for the whole weekend so feel free to join us on the work party for part of a day or for the whole weekend.

If you can come help on this trail it would be appreciated. Things to bring if you can: Sharp axe, sharp shovel, sharp heavy duty pruners, water, insect repellent, boots. We need an experience welder with on board welder and all their gear for making tree savers. If you have on board welder it must be in a trail rig capable of going off road.

I am looking forward to this trail opening, as it will be a true Class II trail not flat dusty roads which is all that is in this area.

If you have any question please feel free to call me. Randy 541 419 9952

Vistas on the top of the new trail
are always a reminder of what we work for.

Signing the new trail 210 (Quack Attack)
The work parties have been interesting.
This weekend we met three PNW members
who traveled far to see the progress and help.

Most difficult or more difficult
without lockers and a steady pedal you donít want to go.

Joe and Stacie on the steep incline
were great help this weekend on the work party.

Another John! Our Token Tall Guy for the weekend pounded the signs in place for each juncture.
Voicing encouraging words along the trail and asking questions about how it all came into being
John thanks for helping out.

End of the trail and the new small kiosk is in place.
Thank you Jon and Josh Pyland

for the trailís beginning and
this smaller version at trailís end.

We ended the almost completed trails project as we started it: ice cream at Hoodoo Lodge.
Helpers came and went from Connecticut,
Washington State our club members
forest managers too changed but the end result is pretty much a lot of fun.

Our tired iron in need of baths for the upcoming
July 30th trip down the SWR with our Forest Service managers in tow.

Your report looks great!!

How long is the trail? Looks like it would be a great trail for a day trip from Vancouver, WA.

To all the DC4W's and everyone else that helped build this trail, thank you! This thing is awesome, and I was glad to be able to help out. You folks have done a phenomenal job and I look forward to enjoying these trails for many years to come.

Heres some video I took.




Jon_in_da_couve 07-26-2010 02:54 PM

And some more :cool:






Jon_in_da_couve 07-26-2010 02:58 PM

And a couple more...



Again I'd like to thank you folks for not only building the trail, but also for the hospitality and patience you showed me. The birthday cake was tasty, and I really appreciated the help with my busted tie rod. You folks are some great people building some amazing trails!

Jeepinjoe 07-26-2010 09:34 PM

Stacy and I had a great weekend. Thanks for sharing the videos Jon.
