Umm when I'm out building, I want it to rain. Nothing crappier than having to put your dirtjumps on hold because the dirt is too dry.

Or how about when there is an experienced builder sitting without a tool and then the person with the tool is talking and barely using it.

Yes that too. Or when you, an experienced builder, is building and one of your friends who has no business building tries to tell you what to do or what would work better.

and yes, the people that hold the tools but don't actually do any work.

people that don't realize how much money you've spent on your tools and treat them like garbage.

when you're trying to map out a DH trail and you keep running into uphills

broken tools

on a serious note when kids come out of nowhere and try to ride the jumps you havent finished yet, or when you build a bunch of jumps and the city deems it too dangerous and gets a front end loader and tears down all the jumps... stupid city

yeah stupid city! I hate putting in all that work with a shovel and my 2 hands for them to come in with a machine and flatten it in 5 minutes

Dry dirt, Packing the dirt, making jumps taller without all the dirt rolling down the side, Running into rocks under the dirt, and digging them up to find like a pyramid you now have to move, or never hit the jump again, so you have to call a crane ect...lol Trails lasting a week tops.

Oh, and cutting through legless lizzards make me sad. Such a sick creature. Any one else see these?
