Report on recent trail work near Port Carling Muskoka.
The weather was very overcast and threatening rain but Mike Webb, Steve Long and myself decided to head out regardless. We knew there was a lot to do and so decided on a section running along the side of Medorra Lake Road, in case we had to bail due to rain. Once we got started the rain did as well. Luckily it only lasted for a short time and we trudged on. The brush along this 1.5 km. of trail is probably the worst on any of our trails. With the sweat running off our foreheads and arms that were getting tired, Mike motivated us onward with a steady supply of gas to keep the machines going. We persisted on and within a few more hours we were done! With the trail as well as ourselves. Off to a late lunch at Glen Orchard Store and from there we headed home for some much needed rest. None of us are as young as we like to think we are!
Next Clearing Day
I am hoping to get a few guys together for Sat. October 12 to take a run out “C” trail to Moon River and do some brushing and clearing as well.
