    Got to say thanks to Jay from Greenside Cafe. Word is that he is sending out some of his awesome burritos for the workers.

    Ok Pat, I'm going to need a doctors note. The Healing process is slower than I would like. But going well. Defnitally takes longer the older you get. Did get the ok to pedal around on roads. A little trail work will do me good.

    It was a really good day at the 3-B build. Lots of rock work went into a good size drop and big burm blow it. A couple other nice features and another Black Diamond line is complete and ready to hit. Then got a line cut into a giant Double Red Diamond huge roller. Tomorrow we will finish the roller and into a very rocky skills area. Going to be fun. If you've got time, come on out tomorrow. We could use an extra hand.

Also finished the line to the big roller. The first Double Diamond Trail! Get ready to pucker up for that one. Started into a cool rocky area that will test all your skills. It will be finished on the next work weekend next month along with more technical lines. You still have time to get in on this awesome build. Super big thankyou to everyone that came out this weekend. Everyone worked their butts off and got some real quality work done. Thanks AGAIN to the Greenside Cafe for those awesome burritos. Killer!

    Its really turning into a cool session spot. A true a la carte menu of technical riding It doesn't get mentioned as much but the uphill lines are all fairly hard, lung busters.

    I got out to check the conditions at 3-B today. The road from Mars Ct. was a bit on the muddy side on the way in but was good on the way out. All the rain over the last three days has done the trail good. All the rockwork looks great. Everything just needs to get some bikes on it and pack it in. Didn't see any other tracks on it.

    Hugs and Kisses to everyone who has put sweat equity into this project. We sesh'd the whole thing today over&over, over&over, over&over, over&over...you get the point. It should be good and packed now! I managed to find a few options that I think might have been unintentional, but they worked out really well and at least one of them left my britches a little soggy. lol

    I was noticing that the new Cajun Pine reroute from last year swings real close to where the new work has commenced. Any plans on making a connector in the future? Just a quick glance at it reveals quite a few boulder options that would tie in very well with the existing features. It would also eliminate flatland slog to the official entrance. Personally, I would not miss much of first half of three bottles given the success of this project.

    Anyway, thanks again to all that have helped out so far, and to those who plan an volunteering in the future. These kinds of trails don't build themselves.

    Got out there today, much better conditions than 2 weeks ago. Rain must have helped a lot. I guess Lost Dave beat me to it but the small drop is indeed hardtail friendly. I might have been psyched out a bit by seeing it prior to the dirt fill but it ended up being completely uneventful. I'm not complaining though. Not sure of the double red diamond drop/roller though. I pretty much said 'no way in hell' while looking down at it. Looking at the pictures makes me feel like a wuss; it looks like I could roller skate down it.

    A friend of mine was wondering if this weekend's trail days will be focused on 3 Bottles or elsewhere?

    I'm pretty sure that the Nat Trails Day on June 7th work will be on the Dead Man Connector. And then Back to Three Bottles in July. Kerry will probably post some info on this Sat. work.

    Yep, we'll be working on the connector trail this weekend (sat only) then back to 3 Bottles. It's too much logistics for a bigger event with non-regulars. The connected will be a great addition.

    If you're interested, we'll start at 9am at the old Deadman campground just south of Pine Flat on the east side.

    Dang it was great to get out on some trail again. My first real ride in 2 1/2 months. Been just riding up and down the road out of Mars Ct. Just kept it easy for now. None of the real fun stuff. But that's coming. 3-Bottles conditions are great. Can't wait to get back for the next build weekend in July. With the trails out of Mars Ct open again, access to 3-B is much easer. Go get you some.

    It's a pretty good booter, but you gotta muscle it a little if you lack the speed.
