It was just me and the dog today. We did a quick job on the Porc chop trail, a little trimming and a lot of raking. I tried renting a leaf blower from Home Depot but they didn’t have one to rent. Bummer. I want to try one out before I buy one. I need to go through the June Bug trail but I think it’s in fairly good shape. I’m aching to do a loop on the trail. There was a guy pulling up just as I was leaving so I stopped and chatted with him. He had never ridden the loop and was going to try it out. He said he works out at Whiting Field so he was planning on hitting Blackwater after work on occasion. 5 hours.
Yesterday, Steve and Ed and I went to Mobile to ride Chickasawbogue and USA. Chickasawbogue is in rough shape but still pretty fun. The bridges they built back in the day are beginning to fall apart. USA is a blast. 9.5 miles of twisty singletrack. It was all I could do to hang on to the wheel in front of me. They do a great job of keeping that trail going.
As far as the whole week goes, it was very productive, although I didn’t get the whole loop finished. A couple of more bodies would have helped a lot but I didn’t expect anyone to show. Thanks to Steve and Matt for investing their time.
