This is news to me, but it explains why the kids have been complaining about the trails lately... They use words like rough and bumpy, like thats a bad thing?!

@boostindoubles Is the trail boss sturdy feeling or kind of flexy ? Been drooling over them for a while.
It is sturdy when all the clamps are tight. If you are swinging it for a while, some of the knuckles loosen and you have to re-tighten them. When getting it out, It takes a minute or two to setup and breakdown. It's not going to replace a regular mcleod, but for what it is, its gold. It fits in my pack and I forget about it while riding. Its for those quick fixes in remote places that would be long walks and short digs. It's also is great when I need my bike to test shit out while digging.

Good to know. I'm all about some mobile trail gnome activities.

It's kind of comical, our local city trails organization, which I am part of, has a tools-trailer that we bring to trail building/maintenance events. Somehow a picture of me, "deer in the headlights" (not the gnome, the mcleod and rogue hoe guy) smack dab right in the middle ended upon the side of this thing, and it's huge, like life-size. So now, I'm plastered front and center all over the city wherever this trailer goes.

Maybe you can spring board a political campaign after all that free advertising!

Required. Some people wear their bicycle helmets...but that looks mega dorky. I use my climbing helmet. That's Kevin in the picture, he was going back and forth using the excavators too.

I hate hard hats. Most models slide down my face if not looking up. Great for crane work I guess.

24" Stilson, not so much...
No. I have to wear one when working with crane loads. Will protect me when the 10mm socket someone left behind rolls off and may help identify the splat Mark if the 40k lb payload drops. Actually I stay well away from any vertical energy paths so it is just a PITA either way.

My climbing helmet works pretty good, and is for, uhh, protecting from falling rocks...kind of.

Looks like well attended work parties, we had one last weekend also. Except we were knocking down Scotch thistle as per our agreement with the land owner. We were in a 7 acre field of them and it seemed endless.

I told the kids to go cut out the Devil's Club. I don't care if it's on the trail or not, just kill it.

Required by whom and why?
