So long as the forecast is remotely accurate, I say we plan a big ol' ride party for this Monday at Stocksdale and get this Spring/Summer kicked off, already!
We've added or modified some things on the "Skillz Loop" that really should be enjoyed and I'd be more than happy to serve as tour guide/coach/advice-giver to anyone that wants to give any of it a shot:
BRAND NEW teeter totters of the "less difficult" 12' x 18" w/ 12" high pivot & "more difficult" 16' x 12" w/ 24" high pivot varieties
Recently-added 12" left-side exit on the "Get Skinnier" structure that started it all last year
Several various-height rock ledges/ups and a 2" x 6" ramp up/level/down skinny
There are, of course, the various railroad tie skinny's along with the (seemingly feared..?) Matrix of telephone poles & skinny's we put in place last year, too.
So, pencil in a trip to the North(East)land Monday night, keep an eye on weather & I'll keep you posted on trail conditions. The trails were 90% bone-dry with a few stubborn "damp, but not soft" spots that shouldn't last much longer, as of this evening - ready to RIP!!
*** if a little bit of "scattered showers" does sneak through, I will likely still plan/hope to make a party out of it, even if we can "only" enjoy the Skillz Loop ***

If it has two wheels, (and...a motor, apparently/lately...) I wanna ride it!
