Building Thumb Bucket Trail Ep 1 (Construction begins on our baddest trail yet)

We're finally getting back to trail building, after a Winter recovering from injury. This time, we're going big and machine cutting a bike-park style trail. This means I need to learn to run a machine. Also because this project will take so much time, we need to break the process up into multiple episodes.

    As someone who does extensive soils testing, you should buy some crappy shot rock, its the byproduct of producing riprap and is very cheap. It also compacts very well into clay.
