Hey Gary, my truck has a hitch. Give me a call/text when you want to get it.
"Nice bruise. What did you hit, a tree?"

"No, the ground."

Based on the plans of some key people I picked a date for our pump track work day(s). Saturday April 18th and Sunday the 19th.
We are going to pick up the Dingo on Saturday morning and be out there a good part of the day and then again on Sunday about the same time.

The plan is to get all the dirt moved where we want it and then start doing the fine tuning finish work to get it buffed and packed. (as much as we can)
Show up in the main parking lot at 9:30am and we will head back to the work area. Bring gloves, eye protection, water, snacks and a good shovel.

I will provide a late lunch/early dinner and replenishing drinks for those that show up to help us accomplish this task.
Obviously, if it is pouring down rain this will be postponed to not the following weekend, but the one of May 2nd and 3rd.

Thanks and hope to see you there,

Had some spare time this afternoon so I decided to go out to the West loop and scout out a reroute around the perpetual muddy section at the end of the West loop. Called Rich and he said he that he could meet me out there so we met at the main gate at 1:15. I had only planned on meeting to get some ideas, but the next thing I knew we were cutting a new section. The sun was out, the wind was down and we got to work rather quickly. It felt GREAT :D

We hadn't seen each other in quite some time so we were talking and cutting and getting things done. The sun was so warm that we were removing jackets in no time and cutting through the thick brush. By the time we had had enough, the skies had turned gray, the wind was picking up and we were both tired.

But, we roughed out the new reroute and it looked good ! Now the next step is to build some log piles, rake out the debris and decide where to install the
prebuilt boardwalks. Although we need to build one more and put them in place. The old section will be covered up and nature will take it's way to cover it.

We will be out there again next Sunday, weather permitting if you want to join us finish this nice new reroute. Should be fun as always. Thanks Rich !!!!
