TA Report: Cockaponset SF / Weber Woods

Date of Activity: November 27, 2010
Location: Cockaponset SF / Weber Woods
Condition of Trail(s): Good shape
Observations: A little chilly at the start, but a beautiful day for a ride with the smell of wood fire smoke in the air; started on the green and took it over by the horse farm and then a grey trail north where I startled a hunter leaning against a tree and gave a wave; jumped on the Quinimay west then a grey down to the white to the green and over to the west parking lot; said hello to an older couple walking their dog coming from the lot where I found just two trucks parked; on the orange to the red and looped around by the horse pond; continued on a grey south near route 145 and was moving along nicely when I heard the dreaded sound of a branch lodged in my derailleur;
by the time I was able to stop, the hanger was in two and I was dead in the water; I called my pit crew (aka my wife) and asked her to pick me up at the Messerschmidt Pond parking lot; hiked a few hundred yards out to the road and over to the lot where my wife was shaking her head and asking me how much this one was going to cost.
