Re: Pony Express

Yes I did read it the Garnett public library had it. I quite enjoyed reading it. A massive amount of history for that time period of our country. Thanks for recommending it.

Sat Oct 17: Bird Farm Trail Ride

The bird farm trails are finally in shape to ride again now. After being flooded 4 times last summer we are ready to do a ride. In a couple weeks the dips by the cars area will finally be dry enough to ride through for the first time in a couple years, provided it doesn't rain again. Those who are f...

Re: Bird Farm Trails

The Bird Farm trails are ready to ride. As usual there are a few changes all brought about by the flooding. I figured out how to add a new trail segment , it is very tight/narrow weaving through a heavy stand of young saplings. A couple riders are planning to come ride Saturday if the weather cooper...

Pretty much driving trucks and tractors so not hard manual labor. It was all I could do to lift my bike up from its dirt/big rock nap yesterday. Still hoping t...
