I here there are a lot of large trees down, not sure if anyone has started cleaning up there yet. just got a new bar and chain for my saw, hoping yo get out a couple times in the next week but would like to keep informed of what others are going so we aren't hiking around for stuff that has already been cleared .

If we was smaht, we'd mark GPS waypoints at every place needing attention and share a map with each other (google maps makes this easy) and keep it up to date whenever work is done. But that's if we was smaht.

I'll help out with the trail clearing. I know where all the damage is on the ol TT loop, I'll do some more scouting out there maybe later today.

If it's not too wet after the Greenway I'll be game for hitting Sutton. Got a new used saw to check out.

Damn, there were big trees down. It must have been a micro burst, the tops of healthy oaks were snapped off about 50' up. I cut a bunch, but was going to run out of gas (me & the saw) so I hopped trail and might have missed some. This stuff is located about mile 2 of the 4 mile Old TT Loop.

TP,

so if I interpret this correctly: you cut all the trees you found but there could still be more down on the old TT - ?

Nice job cleaning up the TT loop Mike. Thank you.

I scouted the rest of the loop and there are 3 good size oaks left. They are all within 100 yards of each other. They are located about 1/2 mile into the TT loop from where Laura had started her TT a few years ago.

Mistress and Par 5 are fine. Must have been a micro burst.

I plan to head over there tomorrow morning- I'll see what can be done about clearing them or rerouting. Thanks for the 20 on the trees John.

The "O" is open for business. There is just one spot where the butt of a limb is resting on the trail. Got 3/4 through the cut when the saw ran out of gas. It's passable but if someone wants to finish it let me know and I'll tell you how to get there without walking the whole trail.
There is also a punky log down right at the beginning of Joes Trail (aka Sponge) that is a nuisance since it is on a descent. Didn't get to Fishermans but there wasn't any damage after the TT. The oaks really took a beating.

Got the one on the TT loop, it is now open for business.
