JoMoCo Planning for 2008

I've been designing the track layout for the start of 2008. If '08 is anything like '07 it'll need a redesign in late Feb/early March but I'll tackle that then.

I've been unable to get the tractor into the southeastern section of the property due to the flooding but once it dries I should be able to tame that in 2 days. We did manage to get in with a chainsaw 2 weeks ago and did a lot of trimming, there will easily be 2 cords of wood for the fire pit and probably more to come when I can get to the back tree canopy area.

The trailer is not in the pictured position anymore either. It's near where the old fence used to be. That fence has been removed. This makes it possible to walk from the tree canopy over to the finish line without walking on the track.

The top image shows the track layout I'm going with.
The bottom images shows the area that is still under water.

The water had receded a bit and was beginning to look promising until yesterday when we got dumped on. I'm estimating mid December before it's ready to ride.

Really anxious to get this season started! I'm probably going to run dualsport tires to try to keep the soil shredding to a minimum, that'll be fun, sliding everywhere!

The county never comes back to say "Hey, waste all the water you want. We're doing fine!" do they?

I'll miss the races with three of us trying to squeeze through the same hole at the same time. How's that law of physics go again? Two objects of equal mass can't occupy the same space at the same time?

I didn't buy that piece, that shot was taken after a lot of cleanup. It'll look even better this winter.

it's crazy, I haven't been able to mow in that area and it's driving me nuts. The field was up to about 4'-5' before we got around to cutting, that blue area is still pretty tall. Fortunately it's starting to cool off a bit and that's the sign that the rains will stop soon.

By January it'll be perfect with tons of firewood and perfect riding temps.
