I got out to Moon Rocks on Sunday at 12:30. The roads in were still slippery with snow and ice and the temps were in the low 20s, so I wasn’t expecting much. Riding out to where some of the better turn tracks are was sketchy – almost like riding on ice.
However, once I got out to the turn tracks I ran across Scott and Sam. They had gotten in earlier and had disced the “main” turn track. There are dozens of turn tracks all over Moon Rocks but this one seems to be the most popular near the Range Land Road OHV area entrance. Discing exposed the loamy sand/dirt mix hidden below the snow, which also melted off once disced. The dirt was great.
Here is the home-built disc harrow they used:
The disc harrow is stashed behind a couple of bushes next to the turn track. If you get there and the track is wet, snowy or icy, just hook up the harrow to your tow hitch and run around the track a couple of times with your truck. Boom, primo riding.
Here is a pic of Sam mid-turn on one of the berms:
