    I posted them locally , might as well let every one see them .

    Today was a vietnam treal day , and it was a perfect day for it.
    we had about 20 - 25 poeple and a Thanks goes out to the Boston Chapter of Nemba for letting us use their trailer.

    here we are starting work on the berm ( actually we started this on the tuesday night crew , but today it was time to finish it. )



    and my Kids were working too



    Dirt was shoveled



    Trees were cut



    But the Berm was not the only thing being worked there were several other things being worked on .

    Here a Tranny is being built for a new drop



    Rock Bars got lots of work



    Pizza for lunch would be consummed



    one big old rock getting moved .



    Meanwhile, up by the new drop with a new Rock jump , they were having there own issues with rocks.



    but a comealong is a wunderful tool!



    and the Kids worked hard too! never too young to swing a pick axe



    and a little fun could be had also



    one Berm -- Done



    the drop must be tested



    and the rock jump follow up.



    and now for the berm



    time to call it a day



    Time to pack up the trailer



    and fianlly Ed , our shuttle driver brining the last of the crew back, for well earned burgers and Beers !

    HOORAY! Well I am taking the day off, so name the time and place. I know you must get tired of 'Nam, so I'll ride anywhere.

    That stuff looks fun!! Wish our trails had more features like that. Unfortunately we have a hard time getting 3 people to come out for maintenance days let alone the crew you guys get. :(

    When are you coming out to ride 'Nam, slacker? Davis has two trips on you. :devil: It's a little different here, there's more people obviously, but a bigger bike scene in general. You should see the trail tool selection inside of the maint trailer. :eek:

    There's still two transitions to be built, and a couple of new trail enhancements. It's a lot of fun built into .8 miles of trail. :dancing:
