It was a bigger tree than I am comfortable bunny hopping, about 18-24 inches is to big for me (I assume many others). My perception is that Dead Dog is not an "expert level" trail that would include this level of obstacle. It took me about 3 minutes to pile the logs up, so it should take less time than that to remove them. Also, moving dirt begins to have a larger enviornmental impact than I am comfortable making, so I was not going to do that. I personally enjoy riding over this sort of obstacle. I wasn't aware of any trail building protocol, I was following the model of other trees of this size on Sidewinder, Rain Trail, etc. Again, sorry to cause any trouble.
You are correct on all your assumptions. No need to apologize.
Man made obstacles like jumps, need to be built in my opinion, but built properly. You have helped the situation, thanks.

When logs are built up it makes things more difficult for clearing. Having to slow down is such a pain, I would rather bunny hop the tree but with smaller logs built in it makes the bunny hop impossible at times.
I would like dirt put in, then it would be a jump to flat but with some good speed on the approach the landing would be smooth.
Is that a flower caught in your pedal, or are you just happy to see me?
Also check out Golden Hill, that`s one of the best places around. There is usually a group there on Wed. nights.
