I would like to try and help depending on the date and times. Sunday mornings (or Sunday's in general) are usually a no go for me but could lend a hand on another day. I work nights so I am available during the week as well.

Just a heads up that between Dec. 27th-30th I will be doing work on the trails. Trail additions, additional log rides, improving bench cut, opening a previous section of trail that has been closed since the flood earlier this year

I will be able to help out on the 27th or 28th. I will be out of town after that. I don't have a chainsaw but can help out with shovel work.

The 27th is my birthday so not sure how much work I'll be doing that day....maybe a little before lunch, however the 28th I plan on working a good bit if you are available. Just send me your phone #

Hey Evan,

I may try to come down and help, too. But, I have a plan to do some more work on the Grey's Creek trail and will have to see. I'd like to pitch in if I can.

RIP ON!
I spend all my money on bike parts and beer. The rest I just waste!

Cool, just give me a call or text! There is a re-route with a big natural berm I'm sure you'd love to "dial in" for us!

Got off work early today and made a quick trip by the trails to do some a few small things and check out our rock stock they provide for us...

a little spot where water drains off from the bathroom sinks....fixed the approach on each side with some rocks to smooth it out.

another mushy spot during the winter.....before and after photos

and a few shots of the flagged re-route with the natural berm at the end..

Also when I made a stop by the hardware store to pickup another flat edge shovel I spotted this little guy and brought it home (perfect to strap to your camelback to fix drainage issues or "sculpt" on some berms a bit)

Evan let us know how the trail dries out throughout this week. I would like to come down and ride it on Sunday afternoon and could help with any additional trail work you may have.

I'm shooting @ 10ish to start trail work in the morning, I will text everyone who sent me their number also...

Tool List (just grab one or two of any of these below if you have them, if not I have extra tools)....
-anyone have a wheel barrow? let me know if you do!
-shovel
-loppers
-rake
-leaf blower

The plan of action is start cutting the new trail the leads into the natural berm (met with a Ranger at the lake today and they are bringing us extra rocks for the berm tomorrow, not sure of time though)....if they don't bring them in time we'll jump over to another section I just marked and cut it. Please bring a camelback with water and a snack or two if you want..( I would bring some but my time is limited tonight and don't have time to do a food run). Also if you want, BRING YOUR BIKE! Trail was a little damp but easily rideable, not great but much better than the WRT on a good day. (hope this answers your question DrRob)

p.s. If you can't make it at 10am, no biggie, just come whenever you can make it and stay as long/short as you like. Thanks so much! =D>

I have wheel barrow but it is on its last leg. I will bring it if I can get the tire to hold air.
