    If you mean Chris Stine he's not on MTBR. You might want to call or email him. I heard you rode Frances Slocum. Any input on the trail system?

    well forget anonymity....i rode there once and everyone knows about it.

    trails were in good shape. well maintaned and only 2 or 3 wet areas (10ft in distance). from the looks of where they were, they probably are always wet from ground water/ drainage. maybe that will change when the trees come out of dormancy and start sucking water from the soil.

    i would get rid of the small trees on the trail. i really like the cribbing of the larger problems but the sinlge tree (7-10 inches high) laying accross the trail seems to serve no purpose but slow you down on faster sections of the course. i figure they were left there to practice "climbing" for beginners. however that is just personal preference and i am by no means an expert on trail layout.
    overall i applaud the effort from your crew and i'm sure my voice is not alone.
