    I went and scouted in the rain today.

    My goal for the weekend is to have blazed and marked a trail through the skatepark area. Later I plan on fixing the dirt jumps there.

    Soon I will put in some big jumps, berms and whatever. I am really excited about one jump over a gully.

    Sorry no pics yet. I only carry tools with me, not cameras.

    So far I have completed about 100ft of trail.

    Uhhhh. I hope you are only mocking my lack of camera/motivation to bring one. Today I continued carving out of the lip, built up the landing, worked on the 2nd berm. Although I did see somone drive by in a silverado with a lock jaw grip popping out the back. vibiker? Anywhoo, the trail is developing... slowly. That's what you get in the fall, about 2 hours of free time in light. Maybe pics if I drive there, not on the bike commute though.

    Jeff at VB said that a few years back, the Park Dist (I think) was thinking about putting in a DS course just north of the skate park. The grade there would be perfect.

    Too bad that never happened.

    Uhhhhh. NOrth of the skatepark is a creekbed. North does not translate to uphill. JK

    Anyway, THe skatepark is in BURTON, not DOCKTON. Dockton is not worth riding anyway. They put up signs prohibiting building.

    Originally Darren Lang and Jeff AMmon from the bike shop were going to build the DS course there. Unfortunately they never did. Darren has DJ's at his house though, I've never hit 'em up, I don't know him at all.

    It's shaping up to be more of a DH trail now. WEST of the skatepark.

    It is totally legal, it is on School District property, where there is a precedent of dirtjumps, and permission to build. It is so releiving to know that my trail won't get destroyed like last time.
