    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    Well it was a long day for some of us, we didn't get back to the cars until 5:45. The corner if fixed except for some touch ups. We also worked on some drainage issues above and below. Huge thanks to Ryan the rock and sifter man as well as the Creamer family. Full report and pictures tomorrow evening when I'm more with it.

    Theis was a great victory of of rock over clay. Every single minute of.every volunteers time was needed and I pledge to never work on this clay corner ever again.

    I need to also say thanks to everyone that worked here last month. We learned the lesson the hillsiide full of rock included clay dirt so we screened out the clay. Dave found a great dirt borrow pit that became the base layer and Art coached us to put the screened rock on top of the mineral soil. You guys staged and placed gobs of material nearby and we did our best use that.

    Mire redid the corner drain and its lower and will drain forever. The rock berm corner structure was and remains fantastic. It just took took two long days on this one with emphasis on effort.

    Well done all!

    That was a fun work day. (Well, 2/3 day in my case. )

    And yeah, Ryan was shaking it like a madman. I did an hour on that thing and I was whipped!

    Check out the disc brake on the wheelbarrow.

    It will get a good test this week if the forecast is accurate, 1 to 2" of rain.

    One comment I have: PLEASE sign up so we know what to expect. We need to know how many tools and what size of project we can finish.

    Stay tuned, we have another mud pit on our hit list.

    I finally put down my shovel and McLeod and rode my mtb today at GR. Big shout out for the trailwork, both the clay section and the rockwork beyond. Makes that section so much nicer to ride.

    Another work day coming up late this month or next. Stay tuned. We'll be working on the first SB up from High Point TH plus whatever small projects we have time for. Wall builders will be needed.

    Marenakos, the rock place one exit east from High Point Way, is having a "how to move stone" day on Friday that looks kind of interesting:
