Trimmed Long's Short, the Jumpline, and Island/Small Switchbacks, and recovered the Connector jump from the tall grass. Then rode it all, and it's in fine shape. The a-lines on Jumpline are visible again, if a little rough. Get your fill of Island and and the Small Switchbacks in the next few weeks before they get updated.
Almost everything else could use trimming to some degree. It would be good to beat everything back soon; the raspberries are getting aggressive, and it won't be long before every ride will end with picking the burrs out of your socks.
Trimmed the Erdman connector as far as the mud hole. The rest of the way to PV could still use it.
I was going to use the walk behind 22” trimmer but could not get it started. There was no oil on the dip stick so I added some and could get it to turn over but only just. A lot of resistance. Middleton power won’t work on Craftsman; is it in the budget to buy a new walk behind from Stihl from them? It would make the long sections with thick tall grass go faster.
I sawed apart the recently fallen tree at the bottom of new switchbacks so no more ducking.
Blackhawk's Tuesday and Thursday evening youth bike lessons start this week.
Please do not park at the east chalet during these times unless your family is participating in the lesson program. Also please remember to respect the lessons and all scheduled events. Give them their space.
