I guess that I should have worded that a different way :o

Went out and checked last night, The connector was fine, but Hank still had 3 really long really muddy spots. If I could trust people to walk around the muddy spots I would have opened it up, but there were two dummys I saw in the parking lot coverered head to toe in mud, so much for common sense. So now there are probably big ruts through the muddy spots making them longer, and causing them to stay wet longer.

Of course this whole post is pretty much useless now because it *%^&ing rained AGAIN!!!!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:

I was out 5/9/09 and watched a Guy and his teenage son ride off into the sunset and around the gates they went :roll: .

I opened it up tonight. There were a few soft spots, and the mess before the field crossing is still a mess. Walk around that please. Everything else was fine. Needs a trim really bad. Already. :evil: Stay tuned.

The connector & Hank are both trimmed. Didn't get to Eddy yet. Hope the rains hold off another 24 hours...

Kill Creek was dry and dusty (except the two known trouble spots) and I had some slithering company on Hank. I'll just call him Hank. He was a beautiful copperhead right in the middle of the trail on the southern power line cut. I debated jumping over him but reason kicked in and I decided to turn around and leave him be. I didn't feel like being that guy that's alone in the woods with a snake bite.

You can see the uploaded photo here. Pretty tough to pick him out but he's at the top center in the middle of the trail: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3 ... =652221969

All these stories about snakes are really giving me the creeps. Makes me glad I have partial color blindness that keeps me from seeing most snakes. I guess that's what it is, I hardly ever see them unless someone points them out. Anyway, stop talking about snakes.

Great ride this morning! Went out with a couple buddies and rode everything, messed around on the skinnies and drop on eddy, started hearing thunder, got spat on a bit, rode more, heard more thunder, got ready to ride more, heard really LOUD thunder and decided that that was the wet one. We hightailed back on the connector and got back just in time to get dumped on while loading up.

Trails look great all trimmed! thanks guys!!!! they were absolute bone dry, primo this morning unjtil the rain :cry:
