That place has a lot of potential for fun! Can't wait to return.

I'll be cutting more trail on the north side over the next few months. It's just a matter of finding the time. You can bet that there will be elevation and rocks. I think I can get at least another 1 1/2 miles out of the place. There are a few corners I want to move on the existing trail as well. Something tells me I will be buying more orange flags.


I'll hope to find some new lines through the Rock Garden that let you determine your level of punishment. I was out there today (looking for my license plate) and saw a lot of possibilities.

I still have not made it clean through the 'Mossy Boulder' line. I've come close, but have not made it yet. On the last ride we brought out chainsaws and cut those lines. I was too tired to even try it that time.

I think I'm going to cut some more trail and ride a little bit next Sunday morning, starting early and ending by 12 or 1.

I could use one or two guys to help cut and burn in...

Burning new trail in can take time but will pay off. I believe a couple riders found a thorn patch. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5oMD_rCvPM"]Bustin' Brush at Adams Ranch - YouTube[/ame] [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dwogLSTk8s"]Rock Garden - YouTube[/ame]

We found Rman a machine he could conquer! Lot of action in the pits.

I mentioned working/riding this Sunday a few posts ago. I'll do that another day.

I'm going to ride Bastrop this Sunday morning so I can make it home by 12.

TEXAS neighborly thing to do is show up with a fresh pie or cake and welcome them to the neighborhood. One step at a time,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
