I'll be there if I'm in town!

Generally Naperville is pretty good about getting the big dead fall down if you give them a shout.  We will have a few workdays there this year to clear site lines, but that is about it.

A firing squad lol Well, I'm pretty fortunate to not have any type of foliage related allergies (much time spent in the Boundary Waters). So unfortunately, the ticket would have been worse. Called the FPDCC this afternoon and they said only Cook County Site Stewards with 30+ hours of volunteer work and attending the three required classes can do things like cut out trees and use saws. Sounds like a lot of work . . . to then do a lot of work. Hummm.... understandable I guess. I'm sure somewhere in those classes you sign an "I won't sue the county if I hurt myself" agreement. Which does make sense.

Cutting anything, moving any dirt or just about anything (other than dead fall off a trail be hand) besides just hanging out and using what is there is illegal in the Forest Preservers and will get you a fine and a healthy one, in the blink of an eye.  Using power tools, like a chainsaw for example, might get you placed in front of a firing squad. 

Good call on leaving it in your car. 

BTW, those vines may have been poison ivy, which is worse than getting a ticket.

No offense, but engaging the NPD is not likely thing to change this unless they start constantly patrolling the area.  Shaming and/or establishing a social conscience works, but only if the perps (see what I did there?) are on this board.  I'd call it a tie for crap shoot.   

My point was along the lines of fixing the trail.  There are several places where the problems at Knoch Knolls are due to poor trail placement from decades ago and are now mud holes anytime there are clouds in the sky.   Message NPD about allowing CAMBr to fix the problems that can be fixed and then there is less trail that needs additional user education to keep it from getting ruined.

20mm & 9mm QR.  I'm trying to avoid 15mm.  I figure by the time I can afford a new frame there'll be a new stardard anyway so I'll just try to skip over 15mm.

I just wanted to tell them that there were two trees down on the path. Since we aren't allowed to do maintenance on the trails, I wanted them to take ownership of the problem.

For the big trees, you can report them on this forum and it may be seen by one of our senior trail gnomes, Steve, who will then go to said tree (with a spotter for safety), and dispatch it.

Yeah that's what I figured, that tree was a monster. Seems like a lot of trees are down this year so far, at the roots too. Almost like the soil is extra soft or something.
