    Default How was the ride

    Our operators worked pretty hard getting the trails nice for N.Y.S.S.A. to ride after there meeting. Haven't heard anything if they had a good time or not.
    No B.S. here, just fact.Ask me.

    The 9 of us that rode from Tailwater on last Friday afternoon headed east on Kasoag's trails. WONDERFUL! Then in Williamstown we headed south to Happy Valley and the Square Valley trails. Again, TOP NOTCH! The wind was pretty strong, but we then headed west towards Parish and Mexico, taking the turn towards Mexico because the weather was starting to turn even worse (shoulda stayed in the wooded areas). Mexico's trails were pretty good with orange stakes all through their fields so we could find the way easily despite the blowing snow, couldn't tell how long ago they were groomed due to the drifting in from the wind but they were pretty smooth. A couple of ditches in fields seems to have been the only issues, as they came up quickly not being able to see them well in advance. Then we were on what looked like an old railroad bed headed north where we found a fairly-recently burned snowmobile, an older small-motor SkiDoo completely burned to the ground in the middle of the trail. A few of us moved it and got rid of as many charred aluminum pieces left over in the trail, some were still warm! Then we hit PBSC, which was obviously just panned prior to us getting there with no sled tracks on top of the panned snow. Moguls weren't filled in at all, might have been a new operator with the Trail Paver? Stakes seem to be all up, as again that's how we were able to see we were still on the trail many times with the blizzard-like conditions. When we got closer to Kasoag's trail back to Altmar but still on PBSC, many fairly large face-slappers were a major issue through all of the woods sections that were recently panned. Back to Tailwater on a day that never got above zero degrees, and was a pretty good short ride due to the weather. Overall, the ride was good! Thanks to the club's that provided an enjoyable ride in terrible weather!

    I did not hear of anyone riding from Tailwater Lodge on Sat after the Board meeting or from anyone that did. But one eastern NY NYSSA Director and his wife drove to Redfield and stayed a few days to ride there, where his report to me earlier this week was nothing but spectacular. He said he wanted the Redfield club to know how much he and his wife enjoyed their well-marked and nicely groomed trails...and that they will definitely be back there!
    Stay Right and BETWEEN the Stakes!!
