Overthinking the draft from the basement already
Staff member
Mon 23rd to Thurs 26th (don't know times). If anyone wants to join, you can email Darren (dpowell-at-scparks.org) and tell him you're a JORBA member looking to help out.

That is Ranger Darren, who we met at the VPP day?



Made it back today to sweep Three Amigos (3-go kinda like J-lo, cause 3am is taken?)
and the Riverbed Trail.

Couple of things needed to be cleared with a saw, but mostly just branches.
I guess people just go around them? Mentioned that before.

Couple of hiker lines around some rocks appeared. oh well.

I cleared the line above The Nemesis. it rides really well - much better then the line into the mud pit.

Conditions are good - could use a little moisture, and a breeze.

Got an idea for a new line/rock feature - on 3-go, need to get someone that could actually ride it to critique.
(u no hoo u r)

thanks, Pat. Yes, that's the Head Ranger, Darren who was at the last TM. Would love to scope a new line with you but not sure when i can get down there next.

Rode this AM just did lower section up to three amigos. Place is in good shape. There is a small tree across boardwalk by 12. And the rock garden on 10 got a huge pile up of rocks. Everything else was good to go
After the re-marking this year, there is no more Marker 12. Only goes up to 8 now, haha. (i know where you mean though). I will try to get there Friday or Sunday.

Finally got down there for the first time since Ida (yeah, I know I'm slacking). Trails were primo today and the only noticable thing was the rocks piled up at the broken plates stream crossing. Amazing what water can do. Cleared a small tree across the bridge at marker 7 and @snashters cleared one on Chunky Monkey. I also cleaned up a bunch of alt lines and resurrected an old line on Boulderama that a tree has blocked for a couple years. (Looking uphill)

Checked out the trails I didn't hit earlier this week. Everything was primo but lots of rain coming. We took care of the prickers around marker 7 and cleaned up some lines on Chunky Monkey. Forgot to mention in last post but the Pipeline has been recently mowed for all you kamikaze bombers.
