Well We Were Kinda Successful

After about 6 loads of logs, a bunch of dirt, and a bunch of sweat, the big double is now a little more doable. We brought the landing back to about 12 feet or so for the take-off. We built a hip to the left of it as well. A couple other jumps here and there and all in all it was a productive weekend.

Hey do you know Greg Norman? If so, thank him for the vicarious help this weekend. He donated a little Toyota 4X4 that made the log moving possible. It's just small enough, capable enough, and scratchable enough to grind down the White Knuckle to the jumps. It was just sitting around in Seattle, not living its full potential, and he gave it to us for just this sort of thing. Thanks Greg!!!!!

Anyone who is interested in doing a little trailwork on Sat morning, be at Dry Hill at about 9ish on Saturday. We are going to fill in the big doubles on the White Knuckle and turn them into table-tops, so us mortals can work up to clearing them. If you have a chainsaw, bring it. We are going to go up the trail and cut 8' lengths of logs that are laying around and haul them down to the jumps via truck. It should only take a couple of hours (maybe 3). Bring your bike so we can try it out as well. If you are going to show, drop an e-mail to Scott at
Hope to see a bunch of you there.

ODS Monthly meeting TONIGHT 11/06

Just like every 1st Thursday of the month we join ourselves down at Ricks Place Lounge at 6pm. Discussion over beer will take place as we rant about how awesome this season has been for ODS and some of the fine details and trails that 08' brought us. We will plan our future endeavors such as our Tuesday night rides put on by Tyler Campbell and discuss how the "Fall Down" went as we are always trying to fine tune our shuttle days. Hope to see you all there, so break out your rain jacket and bike lights, just because the days are cold and dark does not mean its time to retire your bike ! See you tonight ! - Summer
