I also had half a dozen ticks on my legs the other day while mowing/trimming at RHP.

Looks great and can't wait to try it! What did you use to shave the top of the log?

I think it could use a little work/tweaking, but I'm a pansy... (and it is rideable as-is)
I saw only one other rider out there today. I managed 30:54 today which is a minute faster than my previous best.
Strava! (or it didn't happen!!11!!!)
On my second lap I was cruising at a decent speed to 33:20 but got blown past by the aforementioned other rider. He must have been on a 28:00 lap so my ego got put back in its place.
That was probably jeepskate......
Looks like RHP staff mowed most of the west meadow...or was that you Parttime? Regardless, we are definitely in prime growing season now. Lots of face slappers and knee scrappers out there. My weekend schedule is pretty booked up for the next month so I'll probably squeeze in some trail maintenance in the evening with the Stihl trimmer and push mower. Let me know if you have the time and inclination to come out and help me or to borrow the tools on your own.
Parttime, when do you think you can wrangle up the brush hog? There's still a lot of areas where it could be used.
That was me a few days ago using my regular mower. I wasn't able to get everything that I wanted to get to, because after the 4th rock strike, one blade mount gave up the ghost again. I ordered an extra one last time so all I have to do is replace it and I should be able to get to the SE meadow and a couple more parts I was gonna try near the mounds (I will have to make some 'mower shortcuts') this week. Cleaned up the tight turn near the 'pond' in the west meadow, and also walked and cleared the trail leading down the fenceline into the Munger area because my mowing had been cut short.
Let me know if you need me to pick up the brush mower for you, but I will be out of town this coming weekend.
