    Tip and I put in 3 hours of shovel work today. We removed one dead fall tree from the trail and shoveled a whole lot of sand ... slowly but surely its getting there. I'm getting pretty good at riding with a shovel.

    Yes the dirt jumps are still there and in pretty good shape. Check Nomambo for posted work days and please dont start digging out there without checking with them first. There is a Time Trial out there on the 11th so you could talk to them then.

    The teeter is now just a bridge but they have built some new bridges and berms thru out the trail ... probably a lot has changed since you were out there

    tattoooo if you look at the video at 1:45 you can see the bridge that replaced the teeter totter ... and if you go back thru this thread you will see what happened to it ... the kids using the rope swing tore the top of the teeter off and dragged it down to the rope swing and pushed it in the water to use it as a ladder to get out of the canal ... so we removed the tree that they were using for a rope swing, but the piece they stole was too damaged to use again so we just made it a bridge

    but they have put in a teeter totter at the Bethel Trails near Biloxi

    I need to bring my bike the next time I come to visit.

    More and more the girlfriend and I have been talking about moving back to NO. I miss that town, it was an amazing time in my life. Its funny, I hated living there with my ex-wife, and now every time I come back I love that town more and more. Something to be said about the company you keep.

    Maybe if I do get it together to move back y'all will let me build a new teeter and a couple of drops I wanted to do when I was living there. I've got all these freeride and DH bikes now, need to justify moving them there!

    Trek Demo and April TT

    Thanks to Trek and Eastbank for a great event and a good day of riding. I tried a Superfly 100 and was very impressed, it handled the tight twisty turns on this trail with no problems. Here are a few pics and the results will be posted on Nomambo

    Thanks to Trek and Eastbank for putting on the Demo and Women's Skill Clinic. They had a good turn out of about 20 women. The trail work day got a lot of work done with all the berms being back filled with dirt and a few reroutes were put in. Here are some pics.
