Let's do a WRT safety problem work day Sunday 9:00 AM

We can meet at 9:00 at the levee 1 entrance and head to the river. There is only about 3/4 mile of trail that needs work. We will probably be going through thick privet and undergrowth so heavy duty cutting tools will be needed.

With a few people this should not take too long and may keep some poor soul from falling into the river.

I already discussed this with Lead Ranger Drew but will update the park that we will be working Sunday morning.

Should be able to make it. Might have to work but I'll try.I went through there last night with No lights! Don't know how I made it but I did! Shouldn't be to much work to fix. Especially with you big ole manly men 8)

Is there parking over in that spot or do we need to park elsewhere and just meetup there?

Plenty of parking available. Just bring your Chevy to the levee.

Brad,
Should I switch my Herb priority to this work site?

Would my DR and saws help?

If you don't mind.

Your machinery would be helpful in chewing through the growth.

I'll be there, but extreme "turtle speed". I'll explain in the morning.

Sorry guys; I have a grant deadline rapidly approaching and gotta work. I'll try to ride the repaired section in the afternoon, though! :)

Btw, the Bedpan drop is sweet now!

Don't worry, we will find something for you to do. We have extra tools.

Thanks to Jim, Larry, Mike, Tommy, and Steve, for your hard work on this project. The WRT is much safer now with the improvements made. I have sent a number of pictures to Shelby Farms. Pictures of the trail work are at this link.
