halos and pitchforks!

2 posts in this topic

Me and the Mrs. went for a ride to Red Top yesterday and I have to send out a great big THANK YOU to the volunteers that maintain the trail system. Since our ride earlier this spring we could see that a considerable amount of work has been done to improve the area. It was really nice to be able to take "foxxy run" for the first time in a number of years. grin

Now for the "pitchforks"! Why do "we" and I use that term very loosely continue to ruin it for ourselves? I couldn't believe the amount of LACK OF RESPECT for the rules/laws in place to protect and preserve our riding rights. I could probably show others close to 6 places where "riders" went off the trail, around barricades in many cases, right past "DO NOT ENTER" in all cases, into wetland areas. It is so frustrating knowing that 1% of the "riders" out there are bound and determined to ruin it for the rest of us. I am starting to think we just might be our own worst enemy! How do we rid ourselves of the "riff-raff"? Believe me if I would have seen the violations taking place the CO/Sherrif would have been notified. madmadmad

Thanks for the update nine-tiner.

The last couple times I was up there, the Foxy Trail was closed. I also noticed areas where people went off trail. As you mentioned, it's a small percentage of riders who are doing this and hopefully someone saw them doing it and reported them.

The sad part of this is, no matter how many times someone is caught riding in areas that are not open, they will continue to do so. For some reason they feel they're entitled to do what ever they want.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
