    Splitting wood that is not cedar is not as fun. Sometimes I miss the danker forests of my youth.

    It's at a buddy's house. There's some pretty cool projects going in the 5 valleys though.

    Also if you like big flow trails I'd take a look at what's going on up at Lakeside. Pretty sick bike park going in up there.

    Cool. Nobody is more stoked about the Lakeside park than my 7 year old. Sounds like there might be a shot that the game at a certain Missoula-area mountain is about to change in a big way, too.

    I have heard this as well. Apparently necessity is the mother of invention. Not sure how official yet though...

    I do kinda wonder how as the population grows it may be worth if for the MTB community to buy some of these 100ish acre lots without houses up Pattee, Grant Creek, Miller, Etc. The forest service won't ever let us build anything new.

    Agreed. The most obvious thing I'd like to see right now is biker-friendly singletrack from the end of Orange Street, through the North Hills to the top of Duncan Drive. I know it wouldn't be "rad" but it would still make it so you could ride singletrack from downtown to the Rattlesnake. And this is all city-owned land. You'd think the city would get behind something like this but unfortunately the city hates mountain bikers.

    Not exactly dig stoke, but our trail maintenance crews have been disorganized since COVID and state park rules. Got sick of getting hives/pricksrs/ivy and bought a new 40V elec hedge trimmer. So much better than gas one IMO for beating back the jungle we get summer here. Less noise, smell, immediate start and battery lasted long enough for about 3 miles of trail.

    Had a large tree fall, so we made a reroute and could now incorporate this boulder. Funny when you're building a trail how you get to sections and sometimes take the path of least resistance and plan to incorporate that "section" or "feature" some day. Then when it's forced and you finally do it, you realize you should have done it to begin with!
    So I realigned the short log ride to flow into the new boulder up and over. The two primary ramp rocks were heavy! But it was worth it. Flows nicely.

    All but a done deal. Missoula mountain biking just got a LOT better. Hopefully the new owners will let any new trails that need to get built/modified on the parcel get done before they turn it over to the city.

    Fiskars replaced the broken lopper, no questions asked and no hassle. Good company! Not the first time they've shipped out replacement tools to me.
