Fall Bird Farm Trail ride Oct. 23 ,2021

Post by bird man »

It has been dry for a while now ,so it is time to try again to have a trail ride at the Bird Farm.
Date: October 23 2021
For those not familiar this is a single track in the woods and field edges trail located near Garnett Ks on a 200 acre working farm. There are also open field for those who want to ride with lots of space and no tree to dodge.
Trails have something to offer for everyone from beginner to seasoned rider. Excellent venue for kids and adults alike. No rocks and scary/dangerous hazards .... but you can get hurt if you try.
For those of you who are familiar with the trails, it is dry enough the creek bottoms are now offering lots of possibilities for off trail riding challenges (fun)
We will have ride waivers for riders to sign.
Can come as early as 9AM and stay as late as you like (dark). Bring a sack lunch ,snacks and water/drinks and enjoy a day on the farm riding with family and friends.
We are located 12 miles west of Garnett Ks. There are multiple places to purchase snacks and etc. as you come through town. The little store just outside of town (yoder store) now 7th street grocery is still there and a good place to stock up with fresh made sandwiches, drinks and etc. It is located just west of town about 2 miles on the road coming to the farm (7th st)
Parking will be the usual spot in the grassy shaded area across the drive east of the windmill.
Any more questions ? post or call Larry at 785four four 8 four 9 four 2

Like Snarfie, I also plan to come up from Wichita. It does depend somewhat on whether I get my forks back from the shop in time, but they tell me they can get them rebuilt before Saturday. On my last day in Colorado last week my left fork dumped it's oil.

If anyone is on the fence about this thing, I encourage you to go. Even if you don't bring a motorcycle you can enjoy hanging out on the farm, walking the trails, and great company. Bring your lawn chair and be ready to relax in the country. :-)

Well..........just checked the rain gauge ,have had .6 inches of rain thus far with more indicated to come on radar. It is forecast to be nice by 10 o'clock but the trails will still likely be to muddy.
If your bike is street legal and you want to come anyway be here by 10 -1030 and we can do a road ride to lunch somewhere if you want.
That will allow us to check the trails in the afternoon to see if by some chance they are dry enough (quite doubtful)

We will try for next week end or the week after for the trail ride.

Wichita (at least my house) didn't seem to get any rain. KC area looks dry. BUT...looks like Birdman got a little soaked. Don't want to let those in the SW US hear me complain about getting rain, but....bummer! I'm game (I think) for either of the next 2 Saturdays to hit the trails.

For the LOW LOW price of $10,000 Brother Larry Birdman and Company can bring rain to your crops. Sound too good to be true? Here's how it works.

You have a drought condition, no rain in sight? NO problem. You simply Call Brother Larry, transfer the funds, and he will prepare motorcycle trails near your crops. Meticulously prepare these trails for a day of fun riding for all, BUT WAIT, there's more... Then Brother Larry in his patented process will invite desperate individuals who need to ride to get a day out, throttle therapy. Brother Larry will post on a proprietary website, (rideforum.net) an open invite to all those in need of a days adventure. BAAAAAAAMMMMM. Three inches of rain. Guaranteed.

Sound simple? too good to be true. Time after time Brother Larry's patented process has been tried, tested and proven to be true. It is the combination of effort that Larry puts into the trails, and the built up drooling from the invited riders, the anticipation, the generosity of sharing these trails. That is the secret to Brother Larry's proven rain delivery system. So, stop what your doing and call now. And remember when Brother Larry says lets ride, It rains, and you can take that to the bank.

Sorry Larry I couldn't resist! ;-)
There is absolutely no excuse for what I am about to do.

Trail Report

This evening I did a pre ride trail check just to be sure everything is ready. They are dry enough to ride and with a bonus there will be no dust either. Grass along the trail is lush and green, and more leaves are falling. An added feature that we didn't have 2 weeks ago , the leaves are changing colors so it is getting real colorful in the woods. The forecast is getting better so looks like the weather will be good for Saturdays ride.

Got ur text, thank you,

I might see if I can get help loading my lill beast. I have not been able to ride the last couple years.
I would love to bring it down and get on her again with room to roam. Problem is not riding so much as it is stopping.

Would love for someone to stretch out Lil Nells legs for me...she is one sweet mare.

No doubt will be folks I know and not seen for some time so that would be bonus also.

Maybe you got an atv I could pilot and not fall over when stopped...?

I got a good camera and would love to take some shots.....
