    Up to speed now.
    So, anybody think this weather is hampering progress a smidge....?

    The FB page references a ton of needed materials and some pretty hefty sized equipment still as yet unobtained (word?). Seems like if they were breaking ground, that list would be much shorter. Fingers crossed.

    I noticed that this was going where the old bmx track was. If I remember right, the dirt there was very loose. More like silt. Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but hopefully it will compact and be great for the bike park. I cant wait to see what is coming!

    Pretty certain the dirt for the old track itself was trucked in.

    They are working on environmental study right now. But it seems from the sources I spoke with that yes it is a go just political paper work right now. Flood plain study and so on. Yadda Yadda Yadda Yadda.

    So while this is in a holding pattern come check out Gateway in Travelers Rest. Things are taking shape and looking sweet.

    Saturday from 9am to 1pm.

    You build they will come.

    I heard from a fellow trail builder that those dudes know what they are doing and it is looking good. Should be really fun. I hope it is done soon.

    Licking my chops for a place 20 minutes form the house to get my girls even more hooked. Softball is getting so serious. Have I mentioned how hard it is to tell your kid "No" if they're really good at something?

    I went out there today to check it out and help out. They are pretty close to being ready to open. Here are a few pics I snapped on my phone. Pretty sweet pump track. There is also a smaller track for the childrens. Phase II will be adding a skills area and Phase III will be a rework of the trails in the park. All of the dirt came from the bmx track, they were not allowed to bring in any additional dirt.

    Pump track:
