    Which I rode about 7 miles to do...

    This...



    It's in a crummy corner, and several folks that ride around here can't climb a 15" log, so I made three levels for them all. There was a ride around being ridden in, but why not just fix the original trail.

    There are several more spots needing attention, as this trail spent months under water this year.

    Here is what's happening on a hill side.





    In answer to Burly's question as to whether I like chainsaws, I reply, "F*#K YES!!!"

    Dude, awesome work, when noone is there to properly fix trails they frequently die, so thanks on behalf of those who ride there and will never have the chance to thank you

    So you can post up lame trail sanitation pics, but you can't post up pics of people actually riding.:bonk:

    edit: Texas looks like a ****ing hellhole.

    Rancher 55

    That was all under water for months, so it's a bit desolate looking.

    Oh cool. I like those ranchers. They are heavy, but pretty mean saws.

    It's ok, but could be better too. I changed the oil, but it's still not perfect. Of course, I got used to pretty high end forks, so it's probably just that.
