      Great dirt today. I built a small jump and a berm after the wooden drop, needs to harden and settle in for a few days.

       The wet bog about 2/3rds into the trail has been repaired by a benefactor (who wished to remain a anonymous) - A log and board ‘bridge’ now makes this section readily passable - we owe him (I carried some boards in ????)

       I added a small wooden drop to theve beginning of this trail. Should help spice things up a little.
