Rhododendron? (Think thats how you spell it) It's a bastard of a tree that grows out arseways and takes over the whole forest! So annoying to cut through!

finally putting together a sweeet trail system only to have it rain like a mo-fo..... I'm sure some of the line are going to be messed up from the run off created by the rain

Yeah we got 6.3 inches of rain in 72 hours. Usually we get about a half inch to inch of rain when a storm rolls through. Drainage was not sufficient for that amount of rain, shit got wrecked

Holy shit no wonder it got so wrecked. We have had heavy rain too and I'm back home in 3 days to survey what's happened, hopefully it's ok. (I've been overseas for a month so I have no idea how it's fared)

Drainage has become priority #1. To get half of the years rainfall total in 3 days really exposed the problem areas. Hope your trails aren't super washed, kinda disheartening to walk up to.

When you and your buds build a dope ass transition into another trail and the top half has foot deep ruts...
We will be back this Sunday. With more shovels. Dammit, Carlmont!
