|New year, new trail!|

For the past few weekends we've been working out at Poston around the area where you ride past the Mountain View neighborhood. The major ideas being to abandon a climb that was too steep by creating a more gradual and sustainable climb, lengthening the trail distance overall, and getting farther back in the woods from the neighborhood to keep that primitive feel the woods at Poston so nicely provides. All that work is now complete, minus some minor touch-ups the new trail is open and marked! Altogether I would estimate that we added right around a mile of additional trail. Now everyone just needs to get out there and pack it in by putting some tread on it....that's the fun trail work! Thanks to everyone who has been out there the last couple weeks doing work to complete this alteration. Off the top of my head that would be Jon, John, Russ, Bil, Leanne, Scott, Craig, and Dave but I'm sure I missed someone. Additionally Dan has been out there doing some chainsaw work which is much appreciated, nothing sucks much worse than lugging a chainsaw miles back into the woods. Thanks to Carlton and Robert as well - They've been doing some off-the-trail dirt work creating a new jump line near the powerline cut. I might not hit it but I'll stay entertained watching other people wreck on it! Projects on the way at Poston include the kid's trail and finally getting the Spencer Mountain trail built!
