Default Motocross Area

Here are some pictures from yesterday out at the park. This was our first day to have some people out on the track, there were about 20 people.
http://s225.photobucket.com/albums/d...ocross%20Area/
This area of our park was constructed by Red Bull under a program that they call Urban Renewal. They are still waiting to install the spectator pavilion as well as a decent gate into the area. This area is about a mile in length and has 4 table tops ranging from 3-5.5ft in height and 30-58ft in length. The whole track in about 18ft in width.

We still have the 7 miles in cross country trails as well and the youth area for the kids who just aren't ready for the big trails yet.

I hope some of you all can make it out and see how far the park has come from a year ago.

Cool photos ...

I am going to link a few!





this is nuts ... to old farts like me anyway!






Looks like a lot of fun and for those that don't know ... close to home. You can get there, ride and get home before the family realizes that you are not in the back yard mowing the grass!!!

We went out about 10 days ago...to pick up a geocache...Just saw what we could see from the road...as there were several folks out on the trails and we didn't want to be in the way.
It's come a long way from what it was. The volunteers have done an excellent job.

Thanks Laura, it has definitely been a lot of work to get it where it is and keep it that way. I am working at trying to get a volunteer group together now so that I will not have to do most all of the work out there. Currently we have a couple guys from DFW Honda helping out some on Mondays but other than that I stay busy out there.

Hopefully some of you can make it out to the park and give me some more feedback as to what could use a little work within the trails or the MX area.

Was that you that had the police called on them while Geocaching at one of our other local parks? But yes Geocaching is fun, and rather suspicious looking at times

Laura:

That is good!

suspicious looking at times

Larry:

It is the only sport that I know of where you are the search engine.

I've hung out with a pile of folks that enjoy it. I passed Laura and Kelly along US67 south of San Angelo on their way home from EDRA. They were out rooting around in the weeds trying to find a cache and avoid the chiggers at the same time. A balancing act to say the least!

I like benchmarking ... finding USGS survey markers ...

Larry - I had your same thoughts when I first heard about it. But heck, some people shake their head at me when they see my Jeep. (No cheap comments needed from the Toyota guys/girls)

It is another hobby that some have.
