    Default 2017 Club Picnic

    Hello All

    Just some quick notes for the picnic.

    Besides just hanging out talking about rovers, I have about 1.5 miles of general trails cut that most any stock vehicle should be able to manage without too much trouble. There is also a more challenging trail that involves a mud bog and stream, plus some log crossings. Stock trucks may have some trouble with that one but are welcome to try.

    If anyone is available for some work weekends, we could add some additional stream crossings and hill climbs to what is already there. I would look at June 24-25 and July 1-2 for prep weekends.

    Wanted to know if anyone was interested in having a challenge course with some specially constructed obstacles (Cross axle, etc)

    Just a reminder, hoping to do trail prep this weekend.

    I hope all is well by then for QQ. Went to load her up to take to VT and she had no brakes. Pedal went right to the floor. Nothing! A few pumps, nada. I inch her out and down the driveway, which is sloped and get her into the street, which is nice and level. I open the MC and it's just about empty. The clutch reservoir in the middle is full, the brake bit is very, very low.

    No idea when or where it leaked -- no puddle, no runs on the inside of the wheels. I had the truck out and about a few weeks ago and all was well. I filled the reservoir but no luck. I assume the lines are air-filled and everything will need to be bled. I had no time for that.

    So, back into the carport she went, the trailer back into the yard, and (with lots of swearing) off we went.

    The drive to VT moved pretty well and I'm so happy to be here. It was chilly when I got up, so a blanket, cup of tea and an unbeatable view of Lake Champlain.

    I guess it's not all that bad.

    Probably. Not 100%.

    We are on vacation in VT and will be coming home on the 6th. I can probably recover and make my way up -- probably sans Rover.

    Quick note for all planning to attend. There is no set schedule of events, but here is a rough outline.

    You can arrive anytime. We will be hanging out throughout the morning, and the trails are immediately across the street so wheeling can occur at any time.

    About mid-day if people are interested we can get some pizza from the local pizzeria.

    Saturday afternoon will be hanging out on the wooded trail, and there is a small challenge course set up, might even see if we can have some sort of prize/trophy.

    Late afternoon we will be providing hamburgers and hot dogs for all, but if people would like to bring things to add, that would be great.

    Camping is available both by the garages and across the road in the trail area.

    For anyone hanging out into the evening, I have a small projector and a collection of old Rover promotional films, thought we could throw those on.

    For any who stay over, Sunday will be just general play on the trails and head home.

    Any questions shoot me a note.

    Bill
