Thank you for the walk,Mike,and for keeping posted the far away onlooker that I' am. Ive been following the tremendous amount of work, you and your crew have been doing on the mountain since I found about that endearing two-footer on fb a year back. BTW, today those pics belong already  to the past with the current FWW track laying.

Like Alain, and from even further away, I am watching every inch of the on-site progress and rejoicing in the knowledge of what you all are achieving up there, in the Maine woods.

Hopefully someone who had a camera today or perhaps tomorrow could take and post the same walk photographically that Mike did with all the track down.  That new 1420 feet is a beautiful set of two foot curves through a stunning set of Maine mountain Woods.

Ballast will be put down in the spring.

Mike...for a minute there I thought you were going to start ballasting next weekend, to satisfy your latest non-member  "fan".  ::)

We just need to finish one that was installed so our contractor could have access to the south side of the bridge. It will need some fill.

We are taking advantage of the early snow this weekend, and starting our tree cutting Saturday. We will be just south of the bridge, clearing the grade. The Bulldozer is not going up until January sometime, after repairs are made to it. So we will likely focus on small bushes and trees, unless the tree can fall out of the way to be moved later with the dozer.
