Week two done and after the biblical rain of the past 6 days, we finally got out of the mud and started building trail! The rocky bits all went in nicely, both to keep the red route riders happy and to help solve drainage issues. The jump line also started coming together, after shipping in many hundred tons of bottoming simply to enable work to continue in the dire conditions - expensive, but better than cancelling the build 'til next summer (?) Always one to put a positive spin on things, I like to tell the squad that it's good to build trail in such awful conditions, simply to see the ground at it's worst, I don't think they see it that way.....
