Joeys wood (home of Joey’s trails) is up for auction (details). The guide price says ?2000 – ?3000 but I expect it will sell for more than that.

This is scary becasue if someone buys it the trails will probably get plowed. Does anyone have any ideas how we could solve this problem?

The auction is on Friday the 13th of April, so only 2 weeks away.

The jumps are drying out which is good news. I was watering things this morning. I have also been working on The BMX Family. Can you read it ok? What do you have as your homepage? Answers in the book…

I have also been experimenting with this thing (doesn’t work in firefox yet). I know its the same, but look in the top right corner where it says “Quick Check..”. I thought that could be pretty useful. Maybe put the top 10 most popular sites in there?

Here are 3 BMX sites that are updated often and I didn’t know:
BMX Fraternity
Chelt BMX
GritBag

If you’re interested in potholes, whiney children, and boring things that Rolie talks about then you’ll love Mark’s Blog.

Sorry there have been no pictures for a while. There are new bits on the right ->

Pete’s and Gaz’s Sittingbourne pictures, some slow worms, some pictures of lambs and daffodils and some other bits and bobs

I have been talking to various people about digging on your own. The general consensus is that digging on your own is better than with people. I am inclined to agree. You have your pick of all the tools and the wheelbarrow, and you don’t tend to get distracted. Often you get as much done on your own as you would if there were more people there as you just get on with it.

Riding on your own is a different matter though. Its a lot more fun to ride with people than by yourself.

I was talking to Nigel yesterday about motivation too. He said that I seemed to be quite motivated about digging and things. I haven’t really thought about it before but I guess I just don’t like wasting time. I have got a bit obsessed by not wasting time. Like there are certain things that I won’t do when its light (like fixing my bike), because they can be done when its dark and I don’t want to waste the daylight. In my old house we had the TV and the computer in the same room so you could do both at the same time, which meant you got twice as much done! Now I just don’t watch TV. I shouldn’t use the computer so much either as it is a waste of time.
