Siiikkk track Shred, close enough to Metal for XB! Like the multiple camera angles. Would be dope if you mixed in a POV angle (chest cam Go-Pro) of pump track to show what it's like.

Siiiiiiikkkkkkk

I don’t own a Go-Pro so multi angle is all I got.

Dude, this hand built stuff is waaaay too much work. I’ll leave the professional building to the guys with the machines.

My day gig is much less psychical and pays better too. Lol

you know.....They will rent a machine to anyone, and you need a skillset just slight above "monkey" to operate it.

...and at 40k + per trail contract ..... I bet you could do ok (as a side gig or retirement project that is)

This is true, maybe I’ll rent a machine next year. I’d have to ask my neighbour for use of her driveway to access this area by machine.

Maybe a retirement gig once I get out of the working world.

I can confirm that, other than being slick as shit from the rain, Fraidy Cat/36DD were running great. I saw a bear on Rotten Cabin too, so that was fun.

What direction were you riding? We are only interested in uphill ride reports around here.

As I was grinding up the climber unfriendly Stoned Free an E-bike came along and rolled right past me. He was going up so no complaints. That said I couldn’t help but think why the f*ck am I doing this the difficult way? Might be time to sell it all and get out.
I grind for sales at work, I grind to keep the household running, and I grind to look after my aging parents. Why am I grinding out here too for something that’s supposed to be fun?

Then I realized it’s my first trail ride grind climb of the year, It will be better next time. Lies, climbing never gets better. Lol

You're right, climbing never gets better, but the more up = more down.
1 rule I have---never end a ride with a climb.
