We left in the morning around 11:30 am and headed down the D trails East (Wawa) it was a good trip, had a few small holes to fill, a few down trees here and there, one washout to fill then it was smooth sailing up to our groomer turnaround at the warm up Shack. The next day we left town at noon, headed on the D108A North (Hornepayne) same thing there, pushed and cut a few trees, now when you see the video you will see Alain cutting a tree in the middle of the trail, before anyone says he has no safety gear, you guys are not safe... risk management and all, I've been cutting with chain saws since I'm 13 or 14 years old, My Dad taught me the right way and my uncle, he was a logger. I also had a school training on proper use of chainsaws. I never got hurt once. Alain is a Logger, well until he got laid off, he has his own grapple skidder and he has been logging for over 30+ years, he knows what he's doing... he's what you call... a PRO with chainsaws.
ok... back to the day, we packed the trail up to the washout and filled a section of it to be able to go over with the groomer we then packed the trail 20kms up to the Dree road CPR tracks. On our way back we had a very steep hill to climb.
Overall it was a good weekend of packing trails with no incidents.
