We (our club) have been asked by the BLM if we can do our trail maintenance on Saturday, November 19th. They are also having an ATV group as well as a horse group down there at the same time doing work in their respective areas and wanted to have everyone down there at the same time.

One thing that I'm still waiting to hear back from the BLM on is doing any rail replacement. Someone has gone down there and cut out all the railing at the exit, which made the exit easier for sure. I'm hoping that we can just leave it like that because it does look much better with the railing gone. There is also a fair amount of oil spills throughout the trails which we will have to clean up. The oil spills are the biggest thing that the BLM is concerned with, and we will make sure it is handled. Other that that it will be the typical trash cleanup, painting winch anchors, and unstacking of rocks.

We will start at 9:00 am in the morning, and work until we finish, and the trail will be closed while the work is going on. Things to bring are warm clothes, gloves, sunscreen, water, lunch, and anything else you may need to be comfortable. We will provide the trash bags, paint for anchors, and hand tools for work. If anyone has a portable welder they could bring that would be a huge help. We have to do a little work on signs that got cut too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff S.

      in this thread, I want to discuss how 4-cycle atv engines work- what the different types are...  how they are set up and which you prefer.  To start off, are the cams on ALL atv 4-strokes powered by a cam chain?  I know that on say a lawn mower or logsplitter engine, the cam is turned by the tappet, pushrods, and valve rockers.  Which is better and why?  Chain-driven cams or pushrod-driven cams?  Are the pushrods just an old version and everything is transforming to chains or the other way around...or not at all?  Just looking for some explanation, history, and downsides/upsides...

      I'll keep looking/asking until I find someone that's in same boat, or atv as I'm in lol Well maybe not the exact same atv, any atv would be ok lol
      Riding skills from slow poke to flat WOT is fine with me, as long as were out there in Gods country!! Get in touch before the season starts to get acquainted before hand! Thanks, Steve

      Got some great areas, up north here, in my state, that I'v found/stumbled up on, around there, over the years, exploring on my own, since 86, that I'm willing to share with anyone interested, even if you've ridden there before, and might have overlooked some of the best, rugged hill climbs, and heavily wooded trail cliffs, steep hill climb adventures in the state, hidden just out of site/view! The main reason for my many trips there, was to explore for these hidden gems, and the overwhelming excitement, after coming across them, where if someone had shown these areas to me, it wouldn't have had the same thrill/excitement as finding them on my own! 
      For just $2000 I can show you and your friends these same wonderful area too....just kidding....no charge lol free to anyone willing to take the challenge, not for everyone, or your occasional passive/cautious trackers! Definitely need a larger motor, grunt machine or UTV with plenty of ground clearance, where I barely make it through some times, with my 750, 4x4 w/ 12'' ground clearance! 
      Get with me for more info, and lets plan a trip as soon as weather improves.
      Thanks, Steve

      Just a curious thought-what percentage of your quad use is work (yard, field, hauling, etc) vs playing (exploration, recreation, enjoyment) 
      personally mine is about 60/40 work to play.  Most of the work is winter plowing!

      I was looking on Amazon for something and came across this prime video and I started watching it.

      Not bad but I've seen better on youtube with today's gopros. The one thing I like is that the guy is talking while riding and shooting the video. He must have a good mic in his helmet because it makes for more interesting time watching than just watching someone riding on trails. The guys narrating and explaining things. I looked on youtube and its there also...
      How it became a prime video on amazon, I don't know...lol.
