Ramblin Vewe Trail Day Recap

What an amazing day!  Many thanks to the folks at Ramblin Vewe Farm for allowing us to come in and assist with their trail efforts.  AND after today the postings are down and the trails are open for riding!  There are probably still a few spots that we'll need to be gentle around so use your head and if areas are still a bit bogged out then step off and walk around for now.

We had an awesome turn out today, I don't know if anyone ever got an official head count but I would say by the end of the day we had around 20 folks working the trail.  The early risers got a crew of about 10 or so and started from the lower lot and the rest of us stragglers went top down from the Boyd Hill side.

The target for the day was a new trail 'Farm Junk' that starts up top near Das Claw and works its way all the way down to the lower parking lot off Morrill St.  Bets are out on its overall length, we have yet to get a GPS device on the entire thing.  My current bet is around 1.5mi...yeah, its long.  Some others think even longer, some shorter.  We'll find out soon enough.

 Plenty of canine supervision today

Many hands make light work and the two groups met in the middle roughing things in well ahead of schedule, around 1030-11am.  That allowed us to break into groups and tackle mini projects along the trail.  Rock work, line refinement, sanitizing.  Its amazing what you can get done in a few hours with that many people.

 The initial stages of what I am told is a magnificent stone bridge over a drainage

 Trying to get the puzzle pieces to fit. We eventually figured it out.

Huck or Roll?

Afterwards we fired up the grill, had a few adult sodas and just enjoyed the great Spring weather.  Chatted a bit about some plans for this season.  Group rides kicking off soon, more social events, more trail work.  Things are buzzing in Central NH.
