    Default Official Robesonia Spring Trials Thread

    Hello everyone, sick of the snow yet? We still have almost 2ft of snowpack here in the mountain but these warm days are melting it fast. There are no bare patches yet except where plowed and there is deep mud there! Should be a very wet Spring event!
    Work Days: Saturday April 18th & Sunday April 19th.
    Event Day: Saturday April 25th.
    Work days will be setup here at my house and across the street. We have many sections up, just simply need to change up several enterances and exits. Please come on out, it's the help that makes this event what it is.
    Each day we will be starting at 9:00 AM.
    Adress is:
    101 E Mountain Ave
    Robesonia PA 19551
    call me if lost, 484-357-9058
    We will offer camping (primitive) on your own both work and event weekends.
    For those of you not too keen on tents I am offering up my camper here at the house and/or Dads apartment up in the woods, first come first serve, reserve early.
    Work days are free if you get your hands dirty, and yes, there's driving involved.
    Event day cost will be the same as last year. Will post pricing later.
    As for prizes this year there will again be a winch donated by my father, not sure if we're going to award to a placed finish or simply raffle off this year, still deciding, but either way, someone will be going home with a new winch!
    Please let me know if youre planning on coming up for work or event days and if you're camping. I really look forward to seeing eveyone again this year!
    PLease email or call me if you have any questions, suggestions or such.
    Thank you, Lyle

    If he is he better pass through a metal and be strip searched before heading up to the campsite.

    Default Snow is melting

    Getting there, a few patches of ground are showing through here. There is about a 4 to 6 inch layer of mud everywhere there is no snow. It's like a slurry. You can't even walk on it. I hope some of it hangs around for the event!

    Default Is it ever going to melt?

    Well folks, at this rate you'll need snow tires and/or chains! I thought the rain and warm temps would melt the snow but here's a pic of the back yard this evening. There are a few more patches of mud thanks to some severe flooding and small land slides but for the most part, it is still all but impassable. I tried using the Series and also my 4x4 four wheeler and could not make it up the hill behind the house. with temps dropping and possible snow Friday, this could be an interesting Spring event!
