    Default Adopt a Road update 2020



    I contacted Brant at USFS to see where things stand with BF and DC and trail clean-ups etc....his response below....

    Hey James,
    DC and BF are indeed open and good to go for the season.

    Official or formal volunteering is still not allowed. Not sure when it will be allowed again. I keep asking and keep getting told, not yet…
    If you or others want to make a unofficial trip there is no problem. Unfortunately, I can’t count your hours. If you make a trip, unofficially, keep track of how many hours and people. You can total up your unofficial hours and let me know.

    I don’t have anything specific to deal with, my guys cut many trees in both areas so should be cleared out. Keep an eye out for problems and for sure document them and send to me. I heard there are a bunch of horses in Barbour, so watch out for them.

    Keep in touch.

    Horses? Would they be from a local owner or wild?

    Barbor borders some private property I wonder if they belong to the ranch that has that shelter along the trail

    I wonder if there is a difference in operating philosophies between ranger districts. Colorado Four Wheelers did the gate swing at China Wall with the forest service on the 15th, just don’t know if it was “official” or not. They also were scheduled to do a cleanup run on the 20th.

    Brian, if you see this, can you elaborate?

    Up here in the Canyon Lakes district we cannot officially volunteer at this time. I was told it is because the FS has not yet finalized their plan on how to handle volunteers with the pandemic. We still unofficially did a cleanup of Moody Hill and Kelly Flats.

    We definitely had the support of the ranger district on the 15th. They sent us two FS rangers to assist us/unlock the gates, and they rode the entire trail with us just like in years past. The 20th clean up was just a club run without FS support to go back and take care of items we discovered on the 15th. A little litter and some carsonite posts, etc.

    I didn't get to go back on the 20th after experiencing either a bad IAC or TPS. Had to hold it above 2500 RPM to keep it running and limped it home. Couldn't get replacement parts in time for the 20th. Someone had replaced the TPS previously and busted the pigtail, but thread-locked the screws! Seriously boogered up the threads trying to remove the TPS, so ordered a new TB which should be here today.

    Thanks Brian. Hope the new body takes care of the problem. Sounds like it was super crowded on the 20th.
