  1. The first "up" W->E there, I could do a month ago, but 1-ride-weeks have taken a toll and I've had no luck there the last two or three rides. The second "up" just before the Cradle... yeah, I haven't gotten up that in over a year.
  2. I agree, from what I could tell, it had been smoldering for quite a while. The coals were pretty deep in places. I wonder if anyone saw any kids hanging around the area yesterday?
  3. It got smothered before any damage was done. It was starting to spread on the ground so It was just in time. Good thing there wasn’t much wind.
  4. They were tripeling that. Instead of squashing the lip, I think she mistimed her pull/hop or what ever they were doing at that speed.
  5. I only did YMCA-DD and saw a few peeps... which is about average for that side.
  6. You can see lead shot on the tread in places.
  7. It looks like our Mexican White Oak is showing signs of life.
  8. I worked DD W -> E up to EBD. There are 2 spots left that will require more than I had in me. I was toast at that point and had to bail. The connector from Twin Lakes to Snail needed a lot of work. It should be clear from the spot where you hop through the split tree all the way to Snail. There is a downed Juniper left that can be hopped over on the approach to the #2 ramp.
  9. Ah, the upper fence. Probably wouldn’t notice that unless you planned to ride it, or entered from Staked Plains
  10. Everything west of swag is GtG, Picnic also.
  11. If someone's trail report is simply "Good-to Go" and nothing else, I would expect to encounter dry trail throughout. People who know the area and "local rules" would expect hero dirt after a damp spell. If it's still damp with puddles and you should use caution, then you should say so... IMHO.
  12. I wish I could jump, that is just around the corner from me. Seen too many Friday Fail videos to give it a serious try.
  13. I’m not familiar with this “satellite”, I’ve heard of it but IDK. Is it the same thing as “Squeeze Play”? I thought it went squeeze play, ray’s collarbone, jammer, with only a switchback in between.
  14. I've never been able to find it and was hoping someone would recognize it. I ripped the pic from an old post either on MTBR or Mojo years ago. I'm guessing maybe DK, but I never got to ride there so IDK... or perhaps BCGB.
  15. Check to see if the bead is seated evenly around the wheel. There is usually a ridge that you can see/feel as you rotate. If it looks/feels good, take it for a spin around the block.
  16. So who recognizes this spot or this rider?
  17. There were a few out there today... in case you’re missing one ;^)
  18. Absolutely perfect conditions this afternoon.
  19. I’ve stopped and gave advice a few times. Last time was when I had just rode up the climb to Swag W->E and there was a guy at the top. I guess he had just pushed it up that last rocky bit and couldn’t believe I had just cleaned it. I showed him my line and he went back down to give it another try. I was 50ft down the bailout when he yelled “I made it !!!”. Dude was on what looked like a 90’s 7 speed HT. I don’t know if I could have done it on that old rig.
  20. To be fair, I’m pretty sure he walked almost all of it.
  21. not sure if it was a messenger bike, but I saw a guy on DD with some skinny wheeled bike with a basket on the back. He also had some kind of boom box going full blast... and no helmet of course. I told him “nobody wants to hear that crap”, but it was so loud I don’t think he could hear me.
  22. I know what you mean. I’ve rolled the ramp, but not hit those platform drops. I need to get back over to the Christchurch playground and work through the progressive drop setup there.
  23. 6pm was much better. It was in the 70s when I got back to the parking lot.
  24. Yeah, that’s one of my favorite rides out there.
