Not sure whether to dis out on Trent for suggesting such a soft approach or respect the wisdom on Planko regarding wet logs.  This talk of hitting the trail must have all been a bit much, that poxy little criss cross log roll over leading into the 1st berm on lower Snipe (down below the dam wall) took me out last night - skin off L elbow, L + R knee and R shin.  Nate, can you mark that one down to be replaced with rocks?

It's been a while, a long overdue reset of the caution button.  Not ideal leading into a race this Sunday.

You were clever enough to 'see it' rather than 'try it'?

It's not that good even when it's dry - don't really know what I was thinking.

Hahaha
Nah i took the b line because my shock had little air in it and also because i heard Dale laughing from him stacking on it for the second time on the night.

Think i could make that last section really sweet.... hopefully soon

"plankosaurus" was what my sister called me after dropping it on a wooden bridge. I know better than to tangle with wet wood on an angle but still hit it anyway, goes miles towards explaining the stupidity my poor wife has to deal with on a daily basis.

Looking forward to making it a rock feature, perhaps with less angle to it? Remind me when that build day is on, I'll be happy to remove that log >:)
