In the flippen 80’s, can you believe it?

Got back from the lake on Sunday, completely panning on doing absolutely nothing.. Damn, its absolutely perfect outside.. Cant waist a day like this, got the ok from the boss, aka. Wife, and out the door!
The trials are great! I pity anyone who did not get their A$$ out there to enjoy it (insert countless remarks about how your all dehydrated from weedeeting here).. Looks like its supposed to be this way all week.. Take advantage man, take advantage. Yes, spiders are coming out, but don’t be a bloody wanker!

Thank you fellas! (Hippy, Crook) for your work, as always, yes I am a lazy loser and we are ALL lucky to have you guys out there working. Hoppy too, if he does not intend to say in Mexico..

Thanks for weedeating!
When the hell is Lansen coming back, we miss your posts dude!?!?

Its hot as hell, but the trails are nice right now..

More on Krug

More weedeating at Krug was done this week. Randy and Lance made it through the newly re-routed shorter switchbacks that now tie into the new outlet of the tree house trail. They also made it further down the trail to the new connection to the center trail that runs parrallel to the old climb that tops out at the boulders. This trail then comes back down that same hill and re-crossess the rode and ties into the remaining lower section of the trail that ends at the waterfall. This has all been weed eated now and can be ridden (although some benchcutting still needs to be done) Randy also spent several hours cutting back the majorly over grown section of this existing trail about a hundred yards or so before the waterfall.
The new loop will not cross the creek anymore by the waterfall but will instead run parallel to the creek, bypass the old start of the bridges trail and also bypass the old start of the red bridge trail before it takes off to the right on the new bottom switchback trail. This trail will tie into the remaining switchbacks that make their way to the top of the hill. All of these switchbacks have been extended in length where they used to tie into old downhill trail. After these switchbacks finally come out on the upper portion of the hill, the trail will meander back down and re-cross the old down hill trail twice and eventually pop out onto the old red bridge trail. The red bridge trail will terminate at the end of the old bridges trail which will now become the start of the bridges trail. The bridges trail will come out at the top of the old washed out climbs above the waterfall where this will all tie into the re-routed trails in the pine forest area.
Right now the new loop can be ridden all the way to the waterfall as weedeating has been completed to this point. Technically the switchbacks after this section can also be ridden as I spent several nights last week "rough" weedeating these from bottom to top and back down to the red bridge trail to kind of re-layout the trail as the new switchback tie ins had become extremely overgrown from this winters rough cutting and were difficult to see. These sections still need to be finish weedeated but at least we can now tell where the trail is going.
If you have a little additional time after say riding the GSC, pop on over to Krug and ride some of the new stuff. Really need to start getting some traffic on it to get things firmed up.

Krug Progress Update

On Sunday Randy, Dave and I weedeated the new trail head section on the north side of the back parking lot at Krug. We then went over and hit the new section of trail that goes around the open field and back up the south side of the parking lot and eventually makes its way over to the gravel downhill by the animal pens. This trail ties into the old trail that (for those of you that remember) used to have the log jump on it and eventually ties into the tree house trail.
Tonight I went back and re-rough cut in an additional switchback trail to rectify what we lost due to the "misplacement" of the boulders. This portion of the trail contains several short switchbacks and is now ready to be weedeated. Once this is done it will tie together the trailhead section and the section to the south so that we can at least start riding these sections to get over to the treehouse trail. This is pretty much all new trail so it will be pretty soft to start but should firm up fairly quickly if we can get people to come up and start riding it.
Also, as was written in a previous post, the new trails above the waterfall have been weedeated and can be ridden also.
Still lots of work to be done but we are making progress.
