Cat loader = sections anywhere you want. Endless possible lines in those piles of rocks / concrete.

I think you are absolutely right Mike. But at our lower level, its a little harder. In the sense that we don't know what we should be able to do and setting up stuff that is challenging and only "slightly" above our ability.

Dave and I talked about a few things we could do with his loader moving some of the bigger rocks around.

I look forward to going back another time.

NO! It looks way too SCARY!!!!!

Honestly that didn't even cross my mind for the above mentioned reason. The far end in the pics (which you can't really see) had some pieces sticking out a little. Later in the day I tried crossing at a different angle through there and one of those pieces caught my footpeg and stopped the bike cold. I tumbled off to the side w/ the bike a moment later... Worst part was that Dave didn't even see it! Much less get a video.

Maybe next time I can take a chainsaw to it. Then that may be a possibility.

If you can fit it in you should consider the trials training thing that R&T puts on every year. I think you'd be surprised about what's "slightly" above your ability...

I know some guys who go down to the Trials Training Center in Tennessee in the spring time. Maybe I can make it work this year.
