Been fun to walk the wet woods the past cpl days-all this rain has mushrooms popping up every variety. Pretty cool. I did find some chanties (the yellow ones) which are supposed to be good. This one seems to be a Boltes, maybe a King, which from all reports are great. Waiting to get a positive ID. Another one is also a Boltes, but bitter. I found a lot of these and it would be great if they are edible.

Did some mowing at Levis yesterday-3 hrs and would like to finish today. Also need to ride-have been off the bike all week and my time is running out.

Log Skinny done
Here are shots of some of the finsihed "skills" elements on Lucys loop.

*hrs at Levis yesterday, just 3 today, but it is looking pretty good. Now I better ride.

More Levis dirt

The work crew did a ton of Levis Trail building yesterday. I know I got 8 sweaty hours in! Upper Hermosa-Done! Northface-Done. Lucy's Loop (kinda) Done! Then the yellowjackets showed up.....didn't get me though-whew.

More Lucy's work today

Spent 4 or 5 hrs cutting picnic table wood for ramps and bridges. Built the 180 degree ramp off the top of Lucys onto the side hill. Quite some engineering I must say. Good thing the chain saw was new.

Catchin up

Just back from Levis-just had to get those skinnys done and ready to ride. Used the Earthquake to dig post holes, and everything is mounted and ready. A couple stumps have to go, but that shouldn't take too long. Need to get a "DO_NOT_ENTER" sign up on the south end.

Maybe I can get another element done this week-that would be cool....a teeter maybe? Or, more skinnies. I hate this hot humid weather-just fee like a slug and was totally drenched with sweat running off my cap. Buggy too right now.

Lucy's Loop :)

(my fellow dirt digger and home owner-CB)'s nice to have extra hands when workin at Levis-Hat's off to Darrell and CB and Lucy for the help constructing elements (ramps, bridges and a teeter) on the skills loop. Rode the loop later today to see how it went and that teeter scared me (just a little) but I wanna do it again!
Sweet day at Levis fo sure.

Work Day

CB is going to meet me at Levis at 8:00, so it'll be nice having some help building stuff....Hope Lucy is along-I like that name for the new skills loop-Lucys Loop, nice ring to it. Rained during the night, so we'll maybe build another ramp first, then go install some? No set plan. We really should work on Northface, but LL will be more fun.
