The Gussy was Greasy

The past two days I have been putting in some long hours at work, but today I needed a break, so I headed home at little earlier than normal.  Bucky texted me to find if we were still going riding today and I asked about how much rain we got when that storm ripped through but he said it was a quick shower. Since it wasn't a soaking rain and it had been hot all day I figured the trails would be fine.

We headed out towards Echo Valley and while passing the Jeep trail head at Upper Paugussett I noticed one of the trees that was blocking the entrance was cut up but it wasn't enough to reopen that part the trail.  It wouldn't matter any way because the rest of the Gussy on this side of the forest FUBAR any way.

Bucky and I headed up the Poly Brody Forest Road and discovered that the blow downs that were blocking the road had been taken care of. I rode the bypass trail but the last tree had been cut so that you could still ride through it.

We rode the down the Gussy and back up the unsanctioned trail because the logging hasn't started yet so that part of the forest is still closed. Then we headed down the Mulikin only to find the section that was blocked had been reopened.  I was wondering when that was going to happen. I am planning on berming the upper portion of the reroute so that it flows better, as well as, taking out the rocks in the middle of the trail, again to improve the flow.
