Are there any forums that discuss trail maintenance or building? I'm particularly interested in the maintenance aspect. I'm talking about everything from loppers, to motorized trimmers, chainsaws, methods to carry fuel, herbicide, signing, hammers, packs, boots, ticks, posion ivy, etc... I realize there are landscaping forums and such, but I haven't found anything targeted toward trail maintenance. I've had people chuckle when they see my setups, like my leaf blower with a strapped on Camelback Unbottle and fanny pack. I pack lunch, tools, and everything needed for a dayhike on my blower, not to mention carrying extra fuel. I can pretty much figure out how to do things in a sensible way, but I get aggravated with other volunteers that are clueless about what to do and how to do it.
I was out yesterday doing maintenance, and strapped on a schoolbook pack that I picked up at a Goodwill store for 25 cents. I had a fuel can, herbicide sprayer, loppers, hammer, water, all kinds of stuff in there. Of course a shoulder strap broke, and my gas leaked in the pack. It just make me think that there has to be somewhere to discuss these things.
