Lost a pair of Fiskars hand pruners off the tractor last week on the east loop. If anybody finds them please let me know. Hate to find them with the mower next time out or worse with a bike tire if you get out of the track.

East loop all mowed. West loop half complete. Some invasive species removal too. Ionia do great in the fall. Really prime time.

Rest of west loop mowed. Some trimming done too. Trail conditioner sprayed on 3/4 of east loop to try and reclaim the dirt from the grass.

16ft more board walk on the west loop in eternally mud area. Plus small adjustment/realignment to remove 90 degree turn and improve flow.

All downed trees cleared as of 2nd of December. Riding is fast. Almost no frost crunchies that slow you down. Trail looks great. You can see everywhere with no foliage.
