As ye olde saying goes "make hay while the sun shines" I've been making hay of sorts recently. The trails are too wet to ride right now and I've been a bit under the weather and over the toilet recently so those two things have given me time to think and make hay, or trails. I've been in no condition to do any hard work but I did procure a new set of kick ass loppers with a bit of cash I had left on a Home Depot gift card from Christmas so I've been having at the two new trail sections that I flagged out this winter. I've been wanting to at least get the rough clearing done before the leaves come in so that the trail would remain easy to find once spring really sets in. Was it smart for me to be out there doing trail work while Montezuma's revenge was brewing in my belly? Maybe not but after 4 hours of couch surfing I just couldn't take it any more. I am not one for a sedentary life. Maybe I get it from my father who still works about 70 hours a week even though he's "retired".
The two trails look like they'll be pretty darn sweet with lots of terrain features like small ledge drops, rock walls, some small "vistas" etc. And, if I did my layout well, they should be fairly dry trails since there is good slope and good soils through most of it. There is still a little bit of snow left to go though, so that might change.
Boring post today? Absolutely. At least I didn't talk once again about my wishy-washy approach to this year's race bike and my pissing match on facebook with KillBill about said dilemma.
