    Hi Folks, I’ve grabbed 2 cutters and associated paraphernalia from the container yesterday. Will be cutting Mount Stuart DH trails for GE2 and DH1 setups. Will return Monday or Tuesday. Keys were returned to Mossie’s letter box.

    I still have a cutter. Was planning to get some more cut before March – but that is not going to happen now. Will return it tomorrow.

    My cutter has no fuel. There was none in the shed when I picked it up either-just a heads up for the weekend.

    I’ll be looking at doing some cutting on Sunday morning around 0730. I’ll check in Saturday arvo to find out if I need to go to the container or if a cutter is still left on the mountain.

Some of hammerhead down from the longway intersection. Thanks to jeff rubach and aiden geaney for the help. 1 wipper snipper still at spot left by dan cotter just off hammerhead. The other wipper snipper i grabbed from there is now near the whiptail entrance from tank end. I’ll hopefully be doing some more tomorrow arve if anyone else is keen.

    The lower half of Ring Bark Frog (Frog/tower link to the Rock n Roll Fly over Bridge) has been cut. Now I believe there is a little bit left to cut at the top of Frog before it is completed. I took the cutter and bag from Frog/tower link and left them behind the ‘Easy Street’ sign at the Fly Over Bridge. The fuel canister was over 5/8 full so I didn’t fill it up (I can in future if that’s the going rule?). See attached picture.

    Ive cut that big chonky tree back at the entrance to whiptail from windarra carpark drink stop. Cut the little creek trail before concrete path after keelback. Got a fair bit of keelback done but still more to do.
