The little trees at 2.8 and 2.9 on the west have been removed. The north is completed, managed to find a nest of bees living in the ground, OUCH!!
The turtle trail has been trimmed. Now for the East, it needs trimmed in several places between 2.5 and 7 mile.

I'll get with you, Jim, regarding working next week. Any day Tuesday or later should work.

Ron, sorry but I'm not sure of my availability for the 1st so can't commit to that trail day.

.5 mile and 5.5 on the East are the two small areas in most need of some trimming. It is looking quite good, just rode it in 1:35 using the north entrance so it's rolling quite fast.
Don't have a problem canceling on the first either. Thanks for all your hard work guys!

Holy bugs and humidity.

West is clear, if you don't count bugs. I found that if you ride too slow, you are their dinner, and if you fide too fast, they are your dinner. Either way, it was really buggy this evening.

West/Tech/Lake/North were clear, dry, hard and FAST!!!! Awesome out there right now. But the sandy spots are just starting to get really dry and loose. A few more hot rain-less days and they will be beach sand :(

Although the West is clear of face slappers and heavy overgrowth, I did notice (especially in the Tech-Loop) that the sides of the trails are getting pretty closed in with undergrowth. Not enough to interfere with the trail itself, but obscuring the trail enough to make you hold back a little sometimes through corners. And the entrance to the long bridge after Tech-Loop is getting pretty overgrown. Tech could be a DR candidate for the next trail day :wink:

Many thanks, Critter. I got a good laugh out of that.

There is a tree limb across the trail about six inch diameter, waist high on the East. Lost ttack of the mile mark. Think it was between 13 and 14. It was at the bottom of a hill on the blind side of a turn. Other wise the Easy is flying, this senior rolled it in 1:33:15 this afternoon.

I agree with Todd re: his comments on the west loop. I plan to get out there on Friday morning to address what I can. I'll give an update on Friday afternoon.
