Loading Ramp @ Cleary Summit

#1 Post by john » Sat Oct 26, 2013 6:45 pm

Went out to Cleary Summit today and rode around the Fairbanks Creek area.

While there I discovered that the Snow Travelers Ramp was damaged and in need of repairs.

I can fix the ramp portion (which is where the damaged occurred) but it'll require 2 full sheets of treated CDX and some deck screws. I have the deck screws.

Does anyone have any treated CDX they would be willing to donate or will the club (board) be willing to purchase the 2 sheets for the repairs.

I'm planning to go back up next Saturday (Nov 2) to do the repairs.

Thanks.

Prefer 3/4, but 1/2 would work if I leave whats left of the old sheets on.

Having not seen it, 3/4 CDX would be good if it can be attached to existing to make a replaceable surface. If there is enough there to attach to. I can get the CDX and help.

Don't know where the ramp is, maybe breakfast before hand?

Thanks Larry,

3/4 on top of the current would be the best solution. I did some repairs to it a couple years ago and those are holding well, just has a few holes.

What needs to be done:

1. Re-surface the ramp
2. Remove the attaching 2 by that secures the ramp to deck and reattach it to the ramp portion and then reattach to the deck.

Will take CDX as noted and deck screws. Will need a *beep* gun and socket set for tools, maybe a hammer. I have the tools and deck screws.

Saturday (Nov 2nd) I have plans for the morning and early afternoon. Could meet you around 4:00 PM to do the repairs. Shouldn't be more than 30 to 60 minutes to complete.

Do you want to bring the material up and should I picked it up from you during the week. ?

The parking lot on Cleary Summit, on the road to your right just before you turn left into Fairbanks Creek Lodge.

Thanks Wes, we already have a groomer going to the area with Kerry. Might want to get together with him, helps to have another sled along when you first pull the drag.
