No problem. It got done. I'm thinking the new side slope section we did should be called "Roller Coaster" cause it looks and I'm sure seems like one when you ride down.
Jay Carnivale aka Busdriver and I decided to rent one of these to make the biggest cut out of the dig;

It worked GREAT! Shaved HOURS off the build time and fewer volunteers needed. We are sold on the idea for any large projects.

I'm new to the forum (this is my first post!!!) and I spend a lot of time on the Murry lk. trail. How's the new section coming? I noticed the new trail where it merges back into the existing Lost Loop last week, but I had no idea what was going on. I'll keep my eyes on this post to see if I can come lend a hand next time you guys are out there. A sincere thank you to those who have already put in time on the new section, I hope I can help in the near future.
