98 but feels like 106 degrees...

River still up there and actually rising...so can't connect the different sectors of my trail. 60% under water, but the new logs are great. Here's another one:



This is my first try at riding along the top of a log:



then coming the other way the hop was a little taller…




And on my last try:

New section, old new log

Opening up a new section that is not under water; approach is at an angle, so I chickened out and dabbed all over:







Tried again this time hitting the log head-on and made it over…barely:

Waters finally low enough...

100% of trail is above water. Last couple of weeks I've been clearing the old trail, rerouting where needed or if more interesting, connecting with the new sectors, etc. Lots of new logs. It's also funny to see the old logs I recognize because of the bash plate markings in different locations, sometimes 50 feet away from their original place. Took me 2 hours to ride 2/3 of the trail, what, maybe 2 miles long tops?

Here is a new little reroute

Awesome... brings back ol' memories. However I was riding the banks of the Blackwater River and Davis Creek in MO.
My trials bike was a heavily/modified Hodaka Combat Wombat. Won trophy's in lots of events on that bike. Made my sponsoring/dealership some money with conversions!
Great times...

Wicked In July grass and weeds grow faster than I can clear them

I opened up a short little killer section today, on the other side of Blackberry Hill . No pics though. Maybe later this week I'll take a couple. In the mean time, this little section was very relaxing:

MS waters finally going down to "normal" for the summer

A whole new band of terrain opened up, still a bit muddy, but I spent two hours in totally new terrain, just 30 feet below my original trail…

Some of the sections have these concrete flooring, grippy, lots of fun!

My own rock garden:







Lots of snakes this last couple of weeks; two cottonmouths in one day

I'm still trying to figure out where you are from the pics.

This was in Geismar last week.

lowest level yet today

with the water coming down, as long as it doesn't rain, the mud dries up and you can play around in some of the "steeper" sections of the bank.

Oh okay. I rode to the new casino, but just not on that side of the levee.

I've never even considered a trials bike. Looks kind of interesting.

Yes, yes, you did.

I would keep it, but can only have 1 bike right now. I need a bike to travel on, so this one has to go.
