    TimT got the transitions finished at the wall berm and the old teeter bridge ... good job ... the trail is dry and fast but its getting a little sandy again and the little snakes are out and about. The Stage lasted a whole week ... I'm surprised it lasted that long

    "How do you get to the dirt jumps?"

    from the trailhead go back up the levee and turn left and go about 1/4 mile and turn left down the levee ... really you cant miss them from the levee

    So sorry to see that. I remember waiting in the rain under that pavilion with a hooker for a ride (no relations). Water's getting really high up here too.

    Spillway Damage

    I went out to the Spillway Trail and took some pics of the damage. It is still a sloppy mess and trees are down everywhere ... but the trail looks salvageable with a lot of work. I only hope they incorporate some of the downed trees and stuff into features on the new trail. Looks like all of the pilings by the Qtip are still there and a large tree fell across the pile of tires but the drum set is still there.
    You can see all the pics HERE

    Trail Update

    Tip and I put in 3 hours at the trail clearing debris and picking up trash. Tim has fixed the wall berm and the trail is really starting to dry out. There is still a bridge that needs to be put back in place at the clearing and another bridge needs to be rebuilt because its gone. Its not done, but its getting there.

    Work Day 8/21

    Best day yet and now the Trail is looking good ... had 25+ people show up to help. We moved one bridge back in place and built another bridge and back filled the big berm. Ratboy did some amazing work with the Bobcat. There is some sand when you get back by the turn around and one or two small reroutes need to be done but its looking good out there.

    You can see some Pics here Picasa Web Albums - J H - Spillway Work...
