The birdhouse over the 3rd Only.
Another shot...check the bike on the birdhouse!
6th Only...landing stacked high and tight:)
View of the 6th Only from the side. Should be a fun set.
Best buds. Zach Efron and Brett Carper haha.
The start of the 7th Only on the right and the massive 6th landing.
Guenther standing in front of the 6th landing. Awesome.
God damn...I wish that Zack Efron would give up the cigs, he's putting his career in jeopardy!

Little interview with Mikey. Still pretty inspiring to see how far he's come.
Bird house photos coming soon. Hung those things in the woods last night. Hopefully it draws some wild life!

Jona really likes standing on anything and everything.
Between throwing more dirt than anyone else...Rob doing the other thing he does at the trails a lot!
Don't have time at the moment to upload the pictures from yesterday's dig-fest but I'll have them up soon! Here is a little video to tide you over. Not only is it hilarious but its basically the 717 Family philosophy! Party your god damn dick off!!!!

Ordered this video a few days ago. Hopefully it doesn't take long to arrive. Pretty pumped about it! Probably have a TRAILS ONLY BMX movie night once it arrives and my roommate gets his Xbox back(it took a shit but Microsoft is fixing it up for free). I picked up the most recent Pretty Shady a while back and it only plays on the Xbox. I also have the PAWoods 10 year vid that I'm sure most have not seen. We'll have a few beers and pop that shit up on the big screen and get everyone stoked on digging again!

1. Its trails in a pro football player's yard.
2. Murray got set up with an awesome new van!
3. Aitken is fully riding trails again!
If you need something to put a smile on your face this video should do the trick :)
ARF Trails Jam
Ok, so I'm talking about a different "Birdman" but I thought the picture would get your attention. We have this guy that pops in and out of the woods from time to time with crazy ass binoculars and gear to gock at birds...hence his nickname bird man. Up until now the dude has been totally cool, or at least seemed that way. Well apparently yesterday he decided, for whatever reason, that he thinks the trails have gone far enough. That our current sets are as far as they need to go. I'm not sure what his deal is but rest assured that we have only just begun. My assumption is that he didn't see any wonderful little birdies to shake his dick at and probably thinks we are to blame. We haven't cut down a single tree nor have we made any attempt to stiffle the wildlife in that part of the woods, fuck if we didn't love nature we would build trails in an open feild...its easier to build whatever you want when there isn't trees, roots, and stupid shit in the way! The only thing we've done is clean out some under brush and remove old dead wood that has fallen from the winter. I'm pretty confident that he is the ONLY other person that even goes into those woods other than ourselves. If someone like this guy does anything to ruin the trails for us I'll fucking lose my mind for sure. Don't get me wrong, I love BMX, but at this point the trails are really the one thing keeping me in it. So I guess for now all we can do is keep our fingers crossed and are heads high that the bird man gets over it and that he starts seeing fucking birds zipping around soon so he can get off our fucking backs!

View from the first BBs. Probably only a days labor to get these running. But I'll be holding off on that. The sooner you get things running the sooner people stop stacking dirt and start riding haha. We gotta build at least ten new jumps before I start making shit rideable!

Hopefully ordering my DSLR today or tomorrow! I ordered the bag and tripod already so its pretty much a done deal. Then I'll have to find a decent deal on a flash and wireless transmitter and I'll be decked out for summer photo shooting in the woods! If anyone has suggestions on decent (but affordable) flashes let me know. Doesn't have to be pro-status just enough to shed some light on a dirty bmx rat mid air. Right now I'm leaning toward a Sigma EF530 DG Super Flash.

View from the first set in Only's.
The bench is still standing and so is the grill. Can't wait to fire that bad boy up!
My vote is for the Bronco (my personal fav) but I guess only time will tell. This beats any bike or part test haha!
