    Some work & play pics. Work first.

    I don't have any before pics on this one, it was a ton of leaves.

    Woke up on Saturday, right shoulder was in a good amt of pain.(some history, in 2004 I crashed and dislocated it into my back, cracked the humorous, & was knocked out for a few seconds, had problems with it since).
    I called my buddies that I was meeting down there (Meadow) and they were on their way and I was questioning it because I was in pain, I could barely lift my phone to my ear but I put my arms into the position where they'd be if I were on the bike and there wasn't too much pain. So off I went.
    Definitely worth it! It was 75 & sunny and there had to be 50+ bikes (non organized practice) there so things were pretty crazy on the track in the afternoon. But I even was feeling really weak towards the end of the last few laps I put in because I was dehydrated and only had a gallon of water to drink. I was in some pain Sunday and Monday though, Monday morning I went to an Orthopedic Dr. and I ended up tearing the rotator ligament and upper portion of my bicep. So I've been taking it easy this week and pushing back the final clean ups.

    Meadow is for sure one of my top favorite tracks. I can't wait until the Millville Pro Nat'l weekend. My buddy (on the Honda below) & I are going to convoy our Toy Haulers and go down on Tueday afternoon and hang out and ride our bikes down the road on Tues & Wed (waiting for the gates to open at 6pm Wed) to Meadow. Should be a blast, too bad it's not until July!!
    Some riding pictures. Unfortunately Samantha (Speed Photography) didn't get any pics from other jumps besides the tunnel step up and first table.

    One of the pictures of me from Saturday isn't showing up. Probably because the internet sucks here at school and photobucket won't load correctly.

    I like your plans man, very similar to mine. SWEET meadow pics man, wish I could have made it down there!:cry: Looks like it was a great day!! I like that tunnel jump, but the table right after that is my favorite jump there. Clean-ups look awesome too, keep the pics coming. Btw, ill update my thread soon, I've got a bunch of pics and have a new purchase on its way in the next week. Ill see if I can sneak a couple moto pics into mine too! I do cover eden praire and would be happy to take another job if the ppl are still interested, let me know.

    Season is now pretty much done, finished the last clean up on Tuesday and had one of my full service maint clients that has had their trampoline in the same spot since Sept and the grass was 5" tall and there were some leaves under it but it'll have to get done next spring. I would have done it Wed but I (my parents and youngest bro) went to Laramie, WY to visit my younger bro that is out at Wyotech. Definitely a cool place to go and beautiful terrain. It was warmer there than home though! Very windy on a couple of the days though. We went to a shooting range just north of town and that was my first time at a shooting range since I was 12 yrs old when getting my gun safety permit. Shot my dad's glock pistol, my bros' .243s, a couple different 22's. I don't hunt (too cold and don't really have the patience) so it was completely new.

    Picked up another snow account today, one of my resis for maint just signed on for per push. Thankfully we haven't had anything significant, I haven't bought a plow yet!

    Here are some pictures from clean ups, school, and Wyoming.

    A couple of the stripes look bad but it's insanely steep and it's not worth tearing up their lawn or rolling the mower.

    There used to be a pond with a bunch of cattails in it and weeds all around it, completely removed that and started from scratch with the exception of the pond liner that was existing, we patched a few holes and began to continue construction.
    What we built in my Sustainable Landscapes class. 2 waterfalls splashing onto a 100% permeable paver patio that has the water run through it and pumped back to the top of the waterfall. There is no tank underneath! My teacher's company is one of the best in the area for installs of waterfalls & hardscapes. There were a couple paver scraps sitting on that freestanding wall on the right side.

    Short vid of water running through.

    The city of Laramie is about 7500 ft up, it was hard to breathe the first day I was there. Even harder to breathe up here!
