    Well it has been several days since there have been any posts. That's because those days have been spent in the field from 8 am until 9 pm harvesting the beans.

Full blown harvest is probably 2 weeks away so stay ...

    ... is a use fee trail and requires a permit. They have tubes to pay all along the trail. It is only $2 a day or $10 for a year. I sent them my $10 and feel it is a great way to help pay for something you use. The second thing I notice when I take off is the trail is concrete. Not sure how they got all that concrete back there, but it makes for a great trail. Check out the photos and hopefully I will have more in the future. ...
