A big thank you!! To those who made it out Saturday for the trailday. We were able to
trim most of the trail, and remove all the deadfall that was not rideable. There are 2
more that I will get to soon. The heat and mozzies drove us out of the woods before
we could to them.

How is the trail in general? I was thinking about riding tomorrow (wednesday) after work. I'm sure along m53 is slushy since it has been what seems like all season... Any other trouble/wet spots?

Yeah, there are a few slick spots here and there still. Also, on the south end of Dodge Park, there were a few tight turns that seemed to be building up sand. Not a huge deal, but there was at least one spot where my tire dug in, and I nearly did not correct in time. Mosquitoes were very bad in both Dodge Park and River Bends. It goes against my philosop[hy of not driving to distant trail heads, but I think I need to switch up venues for a while. It's getting kind of old...
