A mile or more of trails and more added to one of the rock crawls this week. The new not so stocker trail will be clinching on a few of the corners for the tall guys but doable.
More rocks and some large concrete blocks add too. Jeff spent 5 hours on the dozer cutting trails yesterday and I put in one twisting roleing trail with the loader along with hauling rocks around.

Things commimg along great!! Loggers should be done this week and then dozing in the parking lot will start. We spent 4 hours yesterday marking out new trails and getting a plan on what to do on the north half. There is a days worth of wheelin on just the south side that has been the main focus so far. The guys who have been comming out to help have realy been a big part of the build and testing of trails and obstickles. They have helped with ideas and I have done my best to build what they would like to see at a park. If the the rain holds I have more axle breaking Ideas as the boss would say. I respond with keep off the skinny peddle and its user friendly. I trying to talk a fall test run into the picture but work at the resort is being a little primary right know. A snow run isnt out of the picture yet. mid jan.

Hey, I live in Mt.Pleasant and it is a major pain in the ass to find anywhere to wheel for some reason. Im pretty excited to see ssomething like this happening so close and if you need anymore help just shoot me a pm. I go to school during the week but Fri-Sun I got nothin goin on. I can work kubota style tractors and case's pretty well too considering my dad owns a landscaping company and I grew up on them. Id love to test some of that stuff out or just pay my dues on what will probably be my wheelin spot of choice when your officially open. So like I said, let me know if you could use an extra set of hands around there.

Took a few guys for a tour and shashed in the rear quarter. Sun. Then Mon. I took the hydro axe opperator around to show him where esle he needed to clear and ripped off the tail light on the same side. SOOO! in repairing the tail lens I was able to get in and push out the quarter to some degree.
Loggers are making great head way and I hope to be building trails again SAT.
