Pre-Build Set for November 12th

Our pre-Mega Build day is on for Sunday, November 12th. The blue gate should be open by around November 4th so we are hoping to be able to drive in to several key spots. The goal is the same as usual – to clear as much as possible to establish the line and prep it for follow-up work at the Mega-Build.

The weather-guessers are saying a high of 50, a low of 38, with a 60 percent chance of rain. We will not cancel. Pull out your bad weather gear and prepare yourself.

This is not a ride. There is no need to bring your bike.

Meet at the gravel lot on the left about 75 yards past Four Corners at 8:30. Guessing we will be at the work sites by 9 and finished by 1 or 2. The after-party is at Porky’s in Longview – 561 Industrial Way. Kids are welcome. We would love it if you could attend.

This trail will be north of Trust Me and will parallel TM. There is the potential for even more. Anticipated length is 2.5+ miles. It will be a significant addition to the system. Crew #5 will also be working on a new line south of the Legacy tank trap.

We are looking for about 45 animals to assist with this build. Get your name on the list by leaving a message here or by contacting me at

  1. Please add Daveed Fleischer to the list, I’m driving from East Portland if anyone needs a ride. I can pick up people along I-5 or I-205, I dunno about the westside of Portland, that’s a weird place.
