High Bridge Flow Control Update

Avid Trails was back with the help of JORBA volunteers to tune in the trails. The top half of green trail is totally dialed. 80% of blue trail is revised and absolutely awesome. Check it out and let us know what you think.

They are not done yet but the big projects are taken care of and the blue steel line is running a lot smoother/safer.
