Sorry guys ....yes I am still alive. I have been preoccupied with some rather life changing events in the last few months and haven't even been on here.
As of a couple days ago I have finally gotten the trails repaired and ridable again. Back in the spring ALL the trails along with about 2/3 of the whole farm were literally under several feet of water after a big rain and the Pottawattamie creek got out of its banks. (we call it a creek here it becomes a river downstream a ways.) Then we have had lots of wind and rain all summer so trail work difficult. I was also in my busy season with work. On top of all that in the planning stages of the life changing event I spoke of earlier that we are still in the midst of . Will fill you in on it later as/if it becomes reality. There was a lot of damage done, creek banks washing ,trees floated in and fallen down, stalks washed over places and now with the wet summer weeds and vegetation have really grown up.
Any way except for a bit of weed eating on the parts that are to narrow to mow and trimming lots of branches hanging into the trail they are ready to ride. I have missed them through the summer , no evening relaxing rides.
All that to say I am ready to schedule a Bird farm trail ride, I am open to ideas for dates. If no ideas I will pick a weekend ride date for not long from now. I have some pictures I would like to show ....but this is my first exposure to the new rideforum format.....thus still learning, and must relearn how to post pics.
So in the meantime if anyone wants to come ride, with a pruning shears in hand ,you are welcome to. Just contact me, we are here most all the time and my schedule is pretty open.
