Glad to hear you enjoyed it. You must have legs of steel to with stand the nettles in the hardwoods.
I rode parts of it last night in a random order. Thanks to who ever has been weed whacking the beginning of Jungle 1 & 2. Please keep up the good work.
It took me a while to figure out what was different as I was riding through the hardwoods (it's been 4 weeks since I was in there last and it was raining then) and I finally realized it was the amount of light. Last years hail storm removed so much of the canopy that it is a complete different woods. It will be interesting to watch how the woods adapt to the new conditions. Possibly more nettles?
And then I got to the power line. The power company has been clearing the right of way. And boy did they clear. As of now the bowl at the beginning of the pine under the power lines is closed. As is the Connector, which has much of the trail just gone. Skid steers, mowers, and chain saws can sure alter the terrain. We will let that part settle down and rebound a bit over the summer and the will bring her back to life.
Frank - that tree you was commented about as you dropped in off the power line is no longer a issue. Unless you hit the stump.
I will try and post up some pictures this evening.
We will be having a trail day(s) on July 31 and August 1. I will post up needs and wants soon.
