    what's the deal with damaged cement pipe? You always see construction areas put the damaged ones off to the side. Do they have to pay to have someone take them away? does someone pay them for the damaged concrete to be recycled?

    I don’t know for sure but I bet you can get them for free if they are damaged. Maybe they have a way of repairing them. I would be interested in a couple but transport could be difficult.

    That's probably the new toy shed.

    A wedding barn? For which species of livestock?
    On the other hand, a trials wedding sounds like fun. Prove who really is the best man.

    Somewhere I had pictures of our Manchester urban trials with a wedding going on in the background. I'm sure they had no idea we were going to be there.

    Yeah, two years ago a huge wedding showed up in the National Forest camped next to our 2 day event camp site. They called the Sheriff Dept. on us. They had over 100 people. You should of seen their faces when they found out the hell raising bikers were legal and they were not! We had permits, Insurance, porta potties and we are on the Forest Service travel management plan. They had zip.

    some new lines on some rocks, both have tricky entrances, trees, rocks, roots in the way. Should be able to do these, but they look scary. Line is right were loppers are , plenty of room at top, and go thru the trees on other side. Thinking of scraping some moss off. The other one, get up on it and ride the ridge. 0426201650-00.jpg 0410201710-00.jpg

    There were a few adult beverages consumed around the fire, but I remember the majority of the weekend.
    One non-riding highlight was delivering the seating for the ceremony. bunch of hay bales delivered with my 2WD 3/4 ton truck, a little off roading with 2WD and 80 psi in the rear tires, that was fun. Rocky incline out of a dry creek bed, more throttle! much bouncing! HAHAHAHAH

    Would rather scrape the moss off than be sorry. Plus now with it gone, can go slower up it and play with the traction. To scrape or not to scrape....?
    0503201158-00.jpg With this rock, If it is possible, to climb it on the left/lower area, there is a scalloped out part of rock, looks difficult. However at that lower area, a real nice straight approach.

    I made some "safety" adjustments yesterday in Zippy's Backyard Trials Playground.
    one of my large logs is (was) hollow, and had started cracking apart. This will not be a good scenario with a trials bike on it.

    Some chain saw fun and it is now a safer option to play on. Should be able to ride many different lines on it as well.

    Good call. I found a big old log while clearing my garden. Seemed fairly solid. When I tried to ride it the bike and myself went straight through it.

    Ended up a tangled heap of dust, ants and spiders. Bloody ants managed to get everywhere!
