Rangeline Nature Preserve / Re: Upcoming Trail Work
« on: June 15, 2016, 11:39:57 AM »
3 hours
Novice trail is trimmed starting backwards to the intersection of Intermediate & E1. 
It will still need mowed on the edges, but all the trimming is complete.  There are 2 small trees larger than my pruners could handle that are a little low (for tall riders) that someone might want to go back & get later on. 

I'm don't want to make assumptions .. but am I OK to do some trimming at the entrance to SC up top?  I can't make the 'official' work days - but would like to help  I don't have a weed-eater, but I can catch the face slappers.

Also, in regards to bandit trails - last night while riding I think I saw the same trail Splinter is referring to.  It also goes to the right at pipe dream.

Equestrians ALREADY PAID a trail permit fee. They have for decades. MTB use fees have been brought in line with equestrians.

I do not agree with the implementation of this, but mtb's were not singled out over all users. Yes, mtb's were singled out over hikers and runners, but that treatment is very much like how equestrians are treated.

BUT, the trails they pay the permit fee for are NOT multi-use trails. Mountain bikers, hikers & runners, are NOT allowed on the trails they pay to ride.  So, mountain bikers are not being treated the same as equestrians. :(

I second on the Camp Glen.  That is the one I recommend every first time rider to.  (kid or adult)
It's a great trail & Ft Ben is a great park.

Racing...from the novice to seasoned / Re: Take the DINO survey!

A few years ago either DRT /or Planet Adventure hosted a time-trial format race, which was perfect for TR. 

I also have very much enjoyed the night races. The backwards night one was probably my favorite race ever.    ;D

I know that Anderson owns about 30 parks and they have a Parks and Recreation Department that I assume manages these parks

The City of Anderson has only an 'interim' Parks Superintendent, Steven Blackwell, who also currently holds the position as Department Head for the City of Anderson Transit System. Doug Zook, the previous Parks Superintendent, resigned last August & took another position within the city at that time. The President of the Parks Board, Nancy Anderson resigned her position about 6 months ago?  Darrin Foltz, one of the remaining 3 board members was named President of the board just recently. 

So they (the City) have 2 positions they should be seeking people for: Park Superintendent, & Board Member, but they aren't actively seeking to replace either.   

Sorry to those who live outside Anderson for the 'political' listing of people in this post, I think it might help someone outside get a better understanding of why things are should I say 'challenging' in Anderson.

There are other parks/ and park user groups included, Rangeline just happens to be the only one you hear about because of this forum.   

I have read the ENTIRE horse thread. Which other threads lay it all out for me?

PM sent


Did anyone/or can anyone get a copy of the promotional piece for the event in Anderson?   

"MC Sports Pro/Novice shoot" was listed on the event schedule. 

MC Sports was a local sponsor.

I have been told there were others locally.  These would be good to contact also.

I believe the link you are looking for:
Anderson, Indiana ... Human Resources Department Head: Wayne Huffman

I just want to add my 2cents on the main topic of this tread

indytriple said:
Also, a *GOOD* map of Gnaw Bone would be worth it's wait in gold.  That alone is probably stopping some people.  It's confusing as hell out there if you've never been there.  Not everyone thinks getting lost is fun.

I've looked at the map posted for GB & it's exactly that map that keeps me from riding there.  Getting lost & riding in circles all day isn't my idea of a good time.  Hoosier National is better mapped/marked.  In my opinion get a good map you will get the riders.  :)

My favorite is a reversible one, one side breathes and allows you to start cool in temps around 60, other side you stay warmer, comfy down to about 50s with no jacket...sounds crazy but it works very well.

This is by far my favorite Spring/Fall riding shirt.  I start with the 'Stay Warm' side, then when/if I get too warm - stop, turn the shirt inside out to the 'Stay Cool'   I now own 2 of them   ;D

I got an e-mail from a friend of mine that has never ridden at BCSP.   Loves to ride technical trials.  So he wanted to go to BC to ride trail “H." I'm like .. What is he talking about?  I ride there all the time & don't know trail "H".   Turned out once I looked at the BCSP trail map it was Schooner.  He’s getting the letter “H” right off the map, so why would he call it “Schooner”?   

You've got Epic Trail status!  (Yay BCSP!)  You have lots of guests from everywhere.  Why not make it as easy as possible to navigate?

... & I don't understand not handing out a simple card with "Trail Etiquette" (I modified the IMBA just slightly) right with the trail map at the front gate.  The same triangle of yield applies to everyone that is asking for a trail map right?

I did wonder why there is a 12" wide ladder bridge on the novice trail.
Can you give a location on this bridge?   -just curious, the only time something like that was used on novice was only to temporarily bridge a low area just to keep the trail open during flooding a few years ago.
