How are the low spots that were fortified with rock packing in?

The water runoffs should keep the trail ridable a bit longer.  The deep groove at the botom of that next to last drop (easier side) may catch a few rider's front tire if they are not expecting it.  But the high side with the crush rock is wide enough to not miss it.  If the groove swallows someones tire is because they're not paying attention.  It will ROCK!

Sidewinder is back in business.  May need to do the same ont he soft spots of Swamp Thang.  Where we have the logs now.

There might be another work day at Boyette on the 27 th.  As everyone know s there are still  alot of areas that need attention.  Hopefully, we can get an official word on from Gary if its gonna happen so everyone can make plans.

I went yesterday and on the first packed in drop of north abyss is perfect. The second needs more packing, it sucked in my tire. I talked to rick as he was about to ride it and told him so he maybe tried to pack it in some more.

Rode on Tuesday 9-23 and it was packed in good .  The weeds were trimmed back so nice I felt like I was riding on Kramers luxury lanes.  Perfect conditions. Sidewinder was a nice surprise. Good to have it re-opened.
