i think it's a county road(?) thus, allah says the county grades it twice a year

I know in the past the coalition has given some money to Charmain to buy gravel and the county supplied a grader. While it is a county road, no one but oil people and climber use it so there isn't as much motivation for the county to spend their limited budget on it.
Sand inhibits the production of toughtosterone, so get it out and send.

all the break ins over the years are probably not climber on climber crime or the oil guys breaking into cars on their smoke breaks.

I burned up 2 tires, overRPM'd the engine on a Chevy Metro, thus split the distributer cap, etc, etc. repairs. Never again. I've now got a new Fit, and will never risk driving it down any steep hills again that don't have an easy back way out. Thumb a ride in to the southern region I guess, or get a 4WD. Good luck

"anyone" and "someone" always seem to be projecting. "nobody" tries to help, but all his brahs are busy drinking....sorry, looks like you're it.

Facilitate fixing the road of course! Get your shovel and yard rake. Slaps will meet us out there at 2:00PM sharp today!

Heh, good point. We'll be there right after we inspect and certify/replace all the bolts on PMRP, clear the fallen trees, secure the Lode, open Oil Crack and Arena, finish the LAC process and write the Climbing Mgmt guide, improve communication to all our donors, work with other LCO's on their missions, raise the cash for the payment this year, build the bike trails, and verify the oil company has no problem with us working on the road.

Then I'm going on break. :wink:

Seriously though, we have donated some money to the cause over the last couple years. Essentially Charmagne, Lee County, and RRGCC all do a part to keep it passable.

When you understand most of the traffic is climbers, you have to believe it is partly our responsibility to keep it maintained. It also helps build brownies points for us as a community and that's never a bad thing.

one factor that could mitigate and reduce the need for constant concern is by driving a slow steady pace up the hill and NOT spinning out and digging holes that then quickly trap followers.

nevermind

nevermind

but not to slow, you want to go fast enough to keep momentum though the holes that already are their, moderate speed > going too slow > f'n flying.
