Well, I went up to the infamous mud-hole to see if the planks we put there in late July were still there, and not surprisingly it was completely destroyed. I didn't think they'd hold up that well, but I thought maybe riders would make an attempt to put things back if they got out of place or started sinking. I guess not.
Someone mentioned that there is an effort to get a bridge or other bypass put over/around this spot, but that there are easement or other issues to work out - don't remember who said that. If that's the case, anything we can do to help move it along? We're neighbors and for one, I'd like to make it more convenient for me to ride, and two, I hate to see the place getting torn up with people trying find other routes around it.
