With the wind kicking up, Mike and I checked out the race course for downed trees and limbs that might slow down the intrepid competitors showing up this Saturday at the Farm. Lots of dead wood littered the course and we had to resort to the chain saw to remove one large tree that would have ruined the flow as you get ready to take a hard left turn and gain a little elevation. The wind did do a nice job of drying the ground up a little bit. It is still pretty soft but not nearly as much as it was earlier in the week. The weather is showing temperatures that should keep the trail frozen for the race which means lots of speed! For those competitors coming across the river be aware that White’s Ferry has been closed for the last few days. Make sure you call ahead before you drive to the boat ramp! Only two days to go! See you there.
