    It's pretty great. I love how I (get lost and) find new lines down every time.

    I did come into one section a little hot last week and washed out. Not sure how, but I managed to stay rubber side down at least.

    Thanks! I saw it right on FB the day after I wrote that.

    Little small victories today on Blue. I found this drop that has been calling me. I been scared to commit because the landing is kind of blind. Hit it today a few times. Now I need to be more committed with some speed.

    Nice job. I know right where that is! There's another place there with like three different drop options that is cool too, since each one is a bit bigger than the last.

    I got to hit Bart last night fast on the full squish for the first time. I highly suggest that too!

    Oh?? Do tell which trail? Yeah Bart is pretty fun. Only thing is it's so short and you have to turn right and climb back up or turn left and go back to the car.

    Ha, true story on Bart ending too quickly with minimal options. We went back up it [explorer lodge] so we could go down Spring.

    Also going down big timber toward North Valley (Muddy Biatch section) is pretty fun.

    Not sure how to describe those drops on blue. They're maybe halfway through the rougher part of the trail, set up almost side by side.

    I also ride with a guy who, on the very last rocky loose descent to the creek on blue, goes completely to the right where there's a small 15 foot long trail or so and then rides straight down the face of the rock. Haven't had the guts to pull that one off myself. lol

    Blue = Explorer Lodge, right?

    Just to confirm the location of Bart:

    Reason I ask is that I thought Bart was pretty impassible.

    Blue actually isn't on that map. As you go up Explorer Lodge from 322, you'll see a blue marked trail on your left as you go by the creek. That's "blue", "Otter slide", whatever.

    You are correct on Bart on the map, which is very much passable... going down.

    Blue isn't marked as stated. You see blue to the left across the little creek as you go up that first slight hill on the entrance of Explorer. It looks just like a side of a mountain and is super fun coming down.

    Seriously anyone who can ride up all of Bart I have to just have to give it to them. I'm sure there are some crazy dudes that do it though.

    pointer I do like North Valley to muddy but it is such a short run. Fun an techy though. I wish it was as long as Spring. I think I need to come out and ride with you!

    Are there any preliminary maps done for new trails to replace what was destroyed by logging, or will the SAMBA crew layout trails on the ground and map later?

    Samba is meeting at the end of this month at Camp Mack. I believe on the agenda one of the topics is about the new trails and construction for those new trails. Pheller let me know if you ever want someone to show you around.

    I_AM - shoot me a message any time you want to ride. I'm usually game in the evenings to ride Mack, but I tend to go elsewhere during the weekends. You got a light? Getting to be about that time.

    On the North Valley, I meant to say I really like the downhill on Big Timber to NV/MB. That's a hoot.

    No way I could make it up Bart, but I know a couple guys that might be able to. Not sure.

    Also- it is my understanding that the new trails are already flagged. Construction was delayed first due to an insurance issue, and then because the summer growth would make it very tough to cut new trail. I can't remember if Matt said we would start cutting this Fall, or if we would wait until Spring... but I am sure that will be addressed on the 28th.

    My wife and I will both be there.

    When I saw the area they logged it reminded me a lot of what Trexler up in Allentown looked like when they put in the trail up there. They also had help from a local who owned an equipment rental business so some of those trails are nice and wide.

    Pointer I'll let you know next week. It's my early week at work so I get off at 4. I don't have lights yet. I usually ride solo so that would be to spooky. Might see a shadowy figure or a ghost you know.

    Love that chute you're talking about! There's another one that's pretty crazy before that. Here's me hitting that line.

    No, this is another section before the far right line that drops into the creek at the end. And don't let the picture fool you, that line is super steep!

    Hrmm...Trying to picture where this is at. Where all the big rocks are at the part before the line starts going down? That picture ain't fooling me that looks steep!

    The trail goes to the riders right in the pic. So you have to know where to look to hit that one.

    I'm playing the trail in my head and I have an idea to where its at. Will probably need to do some discovering to find it though. Probably need a couple mental hurdles before hitting that one. But this is why I love Blue. It pushes you.
