I cut in one new trail today and almost rolled the XJ testing it out. Then I marked out 5 more and will start cutting and clearing them tomarrow. Will need some tester , trail stompers by Sunday though. I hope to have routes marked this weekend around the gravel pit valleys. Next will be the trail to the big valley by way of the Mud pit.

I would also be happy to give you a hand. I don't know when I will have the time though. I wish I had seen this sooner. As soon as I can I'll be over there.

I should be able to help out Sat and/or Sunday, bring the pops along as well as a tester. Rocks = bad for me though, haven't lifted yet.

Mike is a maybe at this point. "Permission" might be an issue... =)

I'm still in either way though Cody.

Oh, and Loso, you'll be proud of me. I finally got around to the spool install. Should be done tonight. It's torn apart right now.

Sat will be more a build day than trail riding. The last few work days when people showed the build kinda stopped. SOOOO!! After everything is brushed and rocks and whatevers moved and placed, then the testing can be done. If you want to help It will be greatly appriciated .. And wheeling after will be the only kicker I can offer as of now. I plan on being there early to beat the heat some. Thanks.

Here is what happend when I cleared trail and tested along!!! LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP CAME TO MIND!!!! It was teatering on the front left tire ,with both lefts off the ground. This hole snuck up on me. The open door is the counter weight

i will be out there most of the time friday, and andys coming out to help finish clearing the trails at the big valley. takeing the exploder and a chainsaw. ron and i walked around for bout 2 more hours last night finding new routes, actually got lost on all the trails out there. ive been there every weekend for more than a month, and rons been on those trails for years, and we still dont know where they all go!!! sat we'll be building all day, we're gonna try to split up in pairs and tackle a few different trails at the same time, it shouldnt take any time at all to get most of the new trails done. come help, and we're gonna go around and test all the trails when we're done. oh yeah, we found a new trail through the mud. hehehehehe.......
