Moving this discussion back to the proper thread. The arrangement we had worked out with Charmane was for maintaining Bald Rock Rd. on the PMRP not the Lode Hill. In any case, Lee Co. provided a grader, Charmane an equipment operator, us the gravel. The new oil company, Triad, is not interested in continuing this arrangement. If there is anyone in the climbing community who is qualified to operate a motor grader and would volunteer their time then we might be able to talk to Lee County and get something going again.

slightly off topic but is there anything we can do about the low head damns that have appeared in the water logged (ie creek) section of Bald Rock Road. from what i've heard and seen, it appears the oil company's stacked metal tubes over their pipelines that cross the creek bed to protect them. the result is a less passable road and pooling of water behind what are essentially load head damns.
Sand inhibits the production of toughtosterone, so get it out and send.

pawilkes..I drove that section of road three weeks ago, and it appears those low tube dams are no longer in place. they were laying in the grass, so unless they put them back in, I am assuming they were taking them out.

It's always funny to me when it's said that climbers bring so much money into Lee Co.
Sure there is some coming in, but not much. Most I can think of would be Koops for food, drinks, tobbacco, and maybe gas. Not many actualy venture into Beattyville with $ to spend.
The majority of money is spent at Miguels, Shell, Chevron, Subway, Ziggies Awesome Mountain Wieners, the Beer Store, and if here for a while, a trip or two to Stanton.

Don't get me wrong, climbers spend money while at the Red, but there are just not many opportunities in Lee Co.

Hey, if it works with elected officials though, then great.

Mark Jackson and I met with Vanilla Ice Executive a few years back when we worked out the deal for us and Charmane to pitch in on the road maintenance. I think another meeting with Vanilla Ice Executive would be better than deluging him with calls. As far as climbers doing business in Lee Co., Lago Linda's plays into the equation. I'm sure some of her patrons are venturing into Beattyville.
