Awesome, I might have to take a break from it this weekend though, that should keep the wife happy. I was looking at either fixing up "Happy Hooker" or "Rc link" next

Like wise.

Hi, Lets have a chat, we may need to re-blaze Happy Hooker as it got intercepted by Arboretum Trees. I think the large metal hook has gone from where is hung in a pine tree too - hence its name. Took a while to convince the DCC to publish that name: - )

Ok Colin, let me know and I will see if I can make it.

Hi Colin, I road down Dog Leg and Haggis basher today, bought back some memories I can tell ya, the rocks on haggis are no less slippery - reminded me the fun of tech XC. Even managed to stall on Big Rick...when I spun my crap rear tire...So I pink flagged Happy Hooker, the arboretum trees are struggling, but I had to negotiate between them. You could just spit the track out to the RC, but I did flag the second section accross the hill to drop where I think we had the jump...then back away from the fence - there's a nice rock garden near cabbage trees that we always planned to play in and make a techy track.  See the old map for info. Let me know when your heading up next and I'll hopefully tag along.
