Yesterday I went for a run on 52 North to check things out and the trail is good to the Morris Road, the new section up to the new shelter is very rough but from the new shelter to Nepisiguit is great. I stopped at the Barren shelter on my way back and that was when my trip was ruined, what a disgrace how people are treating this shelter, the battery is gone (no lights), the fire starter cubes (which are made by a volunteer who is 80+ years old) were all over the floor and even on the counter and the diesel fuel that was in the bottle was poured all over the front of the stove with diesel soaked paper strewn all over the shelter, so needless to say the shelter smells like diesel and is a complete PIG STY, the only thing I can say is someone needs to learn the meaning of RESPECT, do we need to have surveillance cameras put in, very frustrating for this volunteer who has put countless hours into that shelter in the past few years, think i’m done with that, so if there is no wood, no fire starter, no paper, no garbage bags, no kindling, thank the clowns who have no RESPECT. The rain has been downgraded so hopefully we get way less than they are now calling for. Yesterday Tony and Roger did 513 out to 514 and down to Sobey’s field. This will be the last grooming until this bad weather passes and then we are into the Christmas Season so realistically it will probably be late next week before we go out again if we can at that time. Get out and enjoy your trails.
