Signup here for running some summer patrols of the trail.  I would like to get at least 1 per month but more would be better.  In talking with Kyle we need to have more of a presence on the trail leading up to the repairs which should still start with the new fiscal year.

 

The Basics:

-Must signup here before going

-Minimum 2 rigs, max of 4 (No solo patrols)

-Groups of 4 should split into 2 groups of 2 and meet in the middle on the trail

-All rigs must be stickered member club rigs (non-members can ride along but only with a member in the members rig. sorry prospects, this is part of the contract with the forest service)

-All people must stop by Kyle's office in Camino and sign a JHA. You only have to sign once for the year but everyone needs to sign prior to one of these small patrols.  Kyle is usually in the camino office 7 to 9 am thursday through sunday so it is easy to stop by on the morning when you head up.

 

What you do:

-Be friendly to people on the trail but inform them it is closed and give them a OHV map

-Be friendly, you are advisement not enforcement (but you can let them know that the ticket isnt cheap and because it is closed on a court order the forest service is not allowed to give warnings)

-Be friendly and invite them to reach out to the club and get involved in a trail work day (we arent hunting for members with this but asking to get them on a list for when we need volunteer work, tell them that the more people who help the sooner we can get it re-opened)

-Take pics and perform any basic maintenance work needed.

 

What next:

-Post up here dates you are interested/free

-When at least 2 can do the same day, I will notify the forest service of the plan

-I will get whomever is going some door magnets, maps to hand out, and some volunteer vests

 

Also note that there is nothing in our forest service contract that prohibits camping on the trail during a patrol and the 10N13-C spur has 2 campsites with views of the valley.  The group of 2 rule still applies to those camping so both rigs must camp.

I'd be interested in doing a Strawberry Patrol and a Deer Valley Run. 

We could camp on Strawberry or at Blue Lakes

Kris - Both Gil & Betty & Lynda & I would be interested in a patrol run this Sunday (2 rigs). We would need to coordinate with you or Kyle to get the signs, vests & maps. Would you prefer being the contact, otherwise, I can? We'll have chainsaws & the PPE. If, for some reason, Kyle would prefer this not to happen, please let me know. Thanks.

Please text or email direct @ 707-373-1115 or gseymour@undergroundconstruction.com

So today's trail patrol was so good.  Thanks Guy and Lynda for a wonderful day.  We helped out a few people and educated a few people.  But fellow posse member we have some work to do this fall.  Also the snow is gone you can go all the way across to hwy 88 or vise versa.

For all those who are interested to run the patrol, Kyle works 4 x 10's from Thursday through Sunday & bases out of the Camino forest service office (where the chainsaw classes are held). Sign the JHA form once & it's good to the end of this year. We were given magnetic door & strip signs, information & maps, to hand out to anyone you meet up with on the trail, currently in our possession. Let us know that you will be going & we'll get it to you. If this possession changes, we'll post it accordingly.

Be prepared to dive under low hanging tree limbs on the Amador end of the trail, or cut them, if you go before our next maintenance run.

As a reminder, 1 team of 2 rigs or 2 teams of 2 rigs can do the patrol from opposite ends of the trail. Have fun & be safe!

Does anyone want to go up strawberry tomorrow? Super late notice but I figured I'd ask. Obviously can't go by myself either lol. 

Taking my buddy as a passenger up the hill and wanted to get on something mild but still fun. Maybe see what we could do about trees in the trail.

Since nobody signed up for the Trail Patrol and Deer Valley run, I'm cancelling. Promised to take the family camping instead.

I have let kyle know and will fire out when you can stop by the forest service office to pick up materials and sign paperwork.  Should be doable the morning of your run but I will want to make sure someone is there.

Kyle will be in his office till at least 9am on both of those days but if you wont be driving by until later he will make arrangements.  Just let me know what day and time you are going and I will let you know where to meet him.

We went from the 50 end to the 88 side. We came across 5 people and informed them that the trail is closed due to litigation.

Brent and I were aired down and on the trail by 10:30 am, and off by 3:30 pm. We talked to 5 people about the trail being closed  and handed out the maps Kyle had given us. We only saw 2 motorcycles and 3 ATV's the whole day. I managed to lose one of the door magnets off of my truck, apparently some where before V rock because it is not on the door in the pics. The weather was great and maid for a great patrol. The trail looked great from all the hard work the club did 2 weeks before with the maintenance run.
