Sr. Santo,
I plan on being there for an easy stroll.  Need to tapper back for the race this weekend.  If it rains, we'll just hit Gators sooner.  See you there.  Not sure about conditions lately.  As of Sunday at 6pm, most trails were under water.  Unridable were noth grampa, indian, gatorbait, eubanks.  The following had water but ridable: Coconut, misery, both piglets.

I hope they are drier today.

Yay!  Thanks for answering, Sr. Pine.

I'll be there.  We'll make a go of whatever is available, no?

Boyette was sweet - 12.5 miles tonight- almost no sand and only a little mud on N Abyss. BTW what happened to  Sidewinder? half way thru it is blocked off.

That section of trail got beaten up bad by riders who didn't know it was muddy and got to that point and no choice but to walk the bikes.  It had gotten really wide and it was that sticky white clayish mud.  When you end up on the double track road by the fence and see the tape, you can stay on that double track road.  I would skip the next trail (swamp thing?) as well since it is similar clayish type of stuff.  I didn't venture into it but we stay on rode along fence till we got to start of woods trails by where Gary's loop is going to be.  Then we road woods trail to east medows.  If you are there walk to the ledge and scope out that muddy section and give report back.  It may be time to remove the block but get Gary's or Wes' permission.  That was last Thursday so it may be drier now.

Swamp Thing hasn't been too bad the last few times I rode it. It was never near as bad as the last part of Sidewinder.
