    Good job!

    a few updates, 5/21/12

    Scott sent this in:

    AJ and I ran the weed wacker and leaf blower on the entire length SOB, the new over the Dam trail and the entrance of Kirby to the big rock section. The rock on the lower section of SOB is all cleared out and has at least two on lines and two down lines, although the left down line needs a touch of work. The rock at the top of SOB is cleared out too and the around line is clean. The uphill entrance to Kirby is all cleaned up and easy to see now. AJ had a bit of a variation on the new uphill line on the entenence rocks that we have been thinking about. He didn't want to drop the top rock off the edge and he found another rock to fit the gap. It is pretty high and a spotter would be a good idea on that line.

    A good night of trail work and I'm off to clean my stinky self.

    Word is Dozer the wonder dog...

    ...has been selected to have a trail named after him.

    The trail is almost done and will be a totally different way to the top of the mountain, instead of the hard back climb on Dirt Rag riders can leave High Noon climbing at a much lesser grade to connect with Dirt Rag at the Dragon's Back Rock creating 2 options: go right to Dragon's Back, West Virginia and Mono Rock, or go left and descend down Dirt Rag leading to the well house a ways away!

    As you know I always find da Rocks, well the new section won't be barren and there is a great ledge section and tight switchback to test your skills! Should be open for a HCGA Friday Night Pasta Ride in 2 weeks after Dozer christens the new trail!

    Before we head down to the pines I would like to put some trail in behind the well house out to the original birtbike single track. There is some mild grade terrain over there with some great features that can be added. That would add some more SS friendly trail with some great tech features.

    I re-phrase: A non shifting, non part time, singlespeed with only one gear choice!

    "strong leg mountain biking", single leg riding? can ya switch left or right, or gotta use only middle?... LOL

    This thread is going downhill fast!... LMAO

    A little bird told me there is a new trail(Dozer) about to be opened...
    ...that will make more loops/direction changes possible!

    Of course the actually christening will have to be performed by Dozer him self, and it might be a triple header!

    Scott, bring the blower, the one I have of yours decided to not start. I'll see if I can get going if I have time!

    Idea!

    Dozer told me tonight he has been practicing to christen his new trail...
    ...BMER Marty meeting is a great way to end the day of trail building...LOL

    A few friends of mine who ride Moon might visit HCGA tomorrow night to ride da Rocks with us, and they have machinery to build the Bouncing Betty downhill section that I roughed in, and pump track

    I need to discuss with you, Jimmy, Ed B:

    Mt bike weekend 2012
    MTB race - trail route

    I will call in the AM
    Thanks

    If ya can't Ride da Rocks...
    ...Ride da mOOn

    8/2/12 Dozer trail is done, I received 3 white a88 hornet stings, but you know it was so worth it, and doctors say it helps your reflexes...LOL

    4 cans of hornet adjuster and they are out of stings now!

    ...A bit on the new trail, connects to High Noon providing another way to the top o the mountain at Dirt Rag trail. This trail is designed to be a bit easier/friendlier than the other killer routes not to say your gonna coast, but I designed a lot of grade dips to make it flow if you pump it, of course to drain well, a few switchbacks to get us up and a new trials section called "5" you proly know better than to ask "Why 5"

    We ride it this Friday, and I will add pics of our newsest trail!
    Ride da Rocks
    We have a few!

    Good job!

    A new section is in the process of construction...
    ...the "Skinny Lounge"

    Using the lower section of Itchy Tire we are designing and constructing a playground full of all levels of "Skinnys" and some Ramps also! The main feature designed by Scott is a Double "X" shaped Skinny with a crossover right in the middle. I'm designing and constructing a "pivoting" Skinny Teeter-Totter! There will be wide, narrow, short, and tall skinnys for all levels of riding ability to try!

    First pics are the trimming and roughing in the area. The leading trails are in place. The quad will be used to drag some Skinnys into place, others will be dropped.

    Look for more news and pics on this exciting build...

    So my Wife's sister and her husband fly in from Cali for our 20th wedding anniversary last week and where do I take my brother-in-law for an afternoon of guy time? Building mt bike trail and some quading. Poor guy spends all that time flying and doing family stuff to get stuck clearing trail as a reward. He's good people and we locked down the idea of St. Thomas Family Vacation in 2014 so it wasn't all a loss for him I hope.

    I stripped the three telephone polls of all the metal and they are ready to drag over to the new section and winch into place. A bit of winch and manpower should get them to their new home. I'll have to start hauling some wood down from the cutoff pile for the X-Over. It should make for a good play area.
