    We had 10 show, Many thanks to all!!!!!!!

    Worked on several trial and even got to gps new trail on the South Side of the road, easier trail ..
    Explored new North End Pines area for more single track to come....

    We will be submitting GPS files to DNR for approval, once approved they will assign a work crew (Not us) to cut the trail in (sticker bushes and all) and then we will mark it......

    Keep your eyes open .....

    Weather held out most of the day.

    Sorry I had to cut it short, but can't play Mt. Goat like I used too.

    Was a blast working and meeting all the new faces.

    Bones, we had to clean up your campsite on trail 6. Looked like somebody had been living there for awhile:D

    Yeah I'm glad I made it,almost bailed because of the rain this morning in Bedford.

    I'm glad I got to put some work into the trails I enjoy riding,and am looking forward to the new trail system we may be getting soon.

    We built some barricades in some places and did some yellow taping, there has been some trail cutting going on,and in a couple places I was also to blame. We added more orange arrows so the trails should be easier to navigate.

    Jerry,Jerry,myself,and a new guy sorry I can't remember his name did some riding in the sloppy crap after trail work was done, we all slipped and slid around but had a blast doing it.

    New guy (Jeremy Backer, you can call me Backer), checking in. Good to meet you Rick, as well as the rest of you guys. Had an absolute blast skating around in the muck, and I'm looking forward to getting back up there in the near future...

    Edit: Maybe you were talking about Bill though? He was the one on the Husaberg.

    Where did you get off the trail Rick? And what's with all the poles and stuff strewn around at the north east corner tward where those houses are? Is that supposed to be out of bounds?? How can we get a bridge or tunnel made across the tracks at the north end?

    We had been cutting off the trail a little on trail 6 behind the shelter house,and a little bit on trail 11 the one that follows the county road. No biggie though we didnt stray too far,but now they are much easier to navigate.

    And yes as usual I had a couple low speed getoffs,I should have known better on the bridge,and the water hole was even dumber,but oh well thats how I roll:lol3.
