I know it's a long way but Wright Lake at least has facilities.
Facilities are a good thing

Forest Fire

My neighbors & I had a fire burn the southern end of our properties today. It was caused by the train. Not sure what was going on with the train but he left a trail of fire behind him for a couple of miles.
Luckily the forestry guys kept mine contained to 3 or 4 acres or so. I don't think I sustained any real damage at all. I will admit that I was a little
disappointed that one of my favorite sections of singletrack is now bulldozer wide. I have always wanted some whoops, I have them now...LOL

The worst damage I have heard so far is, One of my neighbors lost his pasture which is going to be hard on his cows.

Here is a link

Oh yea, I almost forgot, All this happened while I was working in Tallahassee

It just hit me, I guess the guy on the dozier thought the trail arrows were for him...

Don't worry guys, I will just change it up some & it will be even better than before

Damn, sorry to hear that. At least it wasn't any worse. Fires have been out of hand this summer.

I also need to make a trip up to your place Treeman. I think I'll be a little more capable than on the day I first got knobbies. :P

Mark, glad it was contained. Check out the fire that started in AZ that is now SW New Mexico and headed to the Mexican border.

I missed the Treeman-Fest this year, but will make up for that. I plan on cutting this year's xmas tree at your place, and hauling it back to Pcola on the back of the DR or GS

I started getting phone calls about 3:00pm from my neighbors that my place was on fire. I burned up my phone for a little while by calling all my close by friends to go help until I get there. Then they were calling me on updates. It was pretty much out by the time that I got home.

Trreman, glad it was not worst.

FYI: Tooyguy1 and myself are going to ride the northern side of your Sneads to Pine MT. track this Saturday. Well that is the plan.

So it will be Mark and Mark riding Mark's Pine Mountain route.

Godspeed to the fire: it's got a lot of work to do in Mexico.

As to Treeman, sorry to hear. Needless to say, the RR easment doesn't inlcude the right to set your fields on fire. Besides, asserting claims against the RR is a well-established tradition in the Panhandle -- including the justified ones like yours.

That's a good way to make your mark, Mark.

Yer second from right--meaning yer with the girl on the far right? If so, you got the best lookin one IMO; yer a man of good taste.

I had a Filipina girlfriend once. I reached new heights of FAIL with that one.
