I know its getting boring...the trail was great. Two quick laps and on to Milford. We did find a six pack of Corona beer some one tossed out of the car window on the of camber section in the back. Not a bottle broken either! :lol:

This was the first time I have ever seen Hickory Glen muddy. The first two laps were great...crunchie frozen dirt. The next laps ...slick as astroglide on a hookers hiney. Of course I quit and got off the trail as to not damage the soil. :roll:

WOW, that is hard to visualize. Went to Maybury late Sat (27th) and it too was a bit greasy. Sun is just coming out now, hopefully Commerce, at least, will be good to go by Wed. Post up on conditions if you get out there or anyplace else.

Did two lapes today and the trail was good for me, except some *beep* *beep* on the trail and threw the toilet paper to the side. WARNING *beep* ON TRAIL!!! It was about mile 6 just before you cross a different trail.

Walked the whole trail (3 hours) with Logman (banned on this site) with loper, saw, ax, and log spikes. We cut all the face slappers, pinned the loose log piles, and picked up glass. We aslo nailed boards on the 2 ramps that had missing wood. Its all good to go. Then we did a couple laps to test our work and headed home for a shower.
