    I was sickened to see an example of this on the Canterbury loop last night. The log feature that is close to the Manchaca Rd bridge has been disassembled. Very, very discouraging.
    What! That's a (was a?) highlight of that chunk of trail.

    It probably didn't meet RidingAgain's safety standards.

    Careful now... Let's hope your intention isn't to insinuate that I had something to do with removing the log feature Tip is speaking about... As that would come close to slander.

    And that would not be nice.

    But if you're simply saying that I have safety standards that the log feature may not have met... Then I'm okay with that.

    Although... I didn't actually see the feature in question, so I don't have any particular view on the matter.

    But safety standards are a good thing to have... As I'm sure all properly minded people are able to grasp.

    For instance... Those hammers in your little picture... In the real world, I would hope you would not give a hammer to a little kid and put them up on the roof of a three story building to go hammer some nails into the roof of that building.

    Which, not doing, would be due to some safety standards you held to.

    Now... What you hold to as safety standards... And what I hold to as safety standards... May differ.

    And that's perfectly normal.

    The above made clear... Let me know if you'd like to discuss the matter some more.

    Maybe.

    Maybe not.

    But I'm certainly not foolish enough to do so.

    Shoot... I'm not even foolish enough to think about it the way it seems you have.

    Yikes.

    FYI: I've been a mod on this board since early 2000's and since seen an ownership change. I was stricter before the change and now occasionally address the whims of irate members. This thread is tiresome and I won't mod it because your li'l feelers got hurt. Out.

    I understand the desire to make the trails less dangerous. I do it all the time when I trim punjii sticks. Or delineating an edge of a cliff so that it is more visible so someone does not inadvertently go off of it. All good stuff.

    But there is a difference between mitigating unseen dangers verses obvious "risk vs fail" dangers.

    Going back to the ski area analogy; an Olympic style ski jump looks pretty friggin dangerous to me. I would never attempt it. But nobody is going to go burn it down because "someone might get hurt on that thing?"

    Okay, I'll try to change the topic to something more positive. I rode the stretch called (I think?) "Firehouse" yesterday for the first time. Not sure how I'd missed that all along since I ride pretty much everything around it all the time. Anyway, that's definitely a cool (not so) little stretch of trail. Quite rocky in places, but good to have a new segment. Combining that with Hielscher, disc golf, and the south side of Slaughter Creek in Circle C, I was able to get in just under 13 miles on the west side of Mo-Pac alone!

    Anyway, just wanted to say that it's always fun to discover new parts of this network of trails and wire them together into an ever-broadening variety of routes! I think I'm up to 5 or 6 mostly distinct routes that I ride on a regular basis ranging from 12 to 20 miles depending on how much time I have that day.

    By the way, apologies if my description is too specific here. I'm never 100% sure how fuzzy I need to be when talking about various segments of the SATN.

    Maybe I'm just trying to fit in with all the other a-holes on this thread.

    Beginning with those who think they're all that to be able to call other people a-holes.

    Or maybe you just don't get me.


    That work for you, RMB.
