this will be beerless, still recovering from the weekend. but i will have a small saw to clear palo verde off my wall ride. I think i got a way to string a few walls and jumps together...i'm a little skeered by the last one.

my efforts at pruning were worth it! i need to hit a few more branches, and maybe clear a 6in wide track of some cholla and rocks in the transition zones. this trial is fun! 3 wall rides each with a jump of 2-3 feet back-to-back-back. you gotta hit the right takeoff spots between lots of cactus and onto a clean line to get on the next wall. the walls are about 1ft wide so they are not that hard, but it all being part of the terrain makes it a hoot. if you didn't go looking for it, you'd never know its there. cracks me up to have such a fun urban trial right in the middle of things, expensive cars driving by wondering why a white dude would be landscaping, maybe he's one of those albino mexicans? :thumbsup:

Hey chollaball let me know when you are riding this again - its next to my house so I would love to check out what you got goin on. R if u feel like enlightening me as to how I access this secret. And of course since I live so close I could always come help with pruning or whatever else is needed.

i'm planning on getting out this evening, unless my big bucket of adult responsibilities gets in the way. packing a small pruning saw and hand tools.

can't tonight, but that's a great idea. I don't know Fish, but know lots of folks in common and everyone says he's a good guy... heard his track is a little tamer than Rage's so that would be fun for me and my daughter too. thanks for the idea - pencilled in for next Thurs!

I second this suggestion!! I should be down there if you want to try out the Hero again. Actually there will be at least 3-4 hero's out there in different setup but I believe they are all the larger of the two sizes available.
