The wood reinforcement does help for sure. If we have enough folks come out this weekend we should consider making a permanent fix (reroute) while we have the help on hand.

yep, my bad. it was around 3.6 before and it added 2.4 to the total.

for those who can help out on Saturday please bring a rake. we could use at least 5 out there as we have about 1.5 miles to rake.

If possible, please try to get there around 9:15 so we can go into the trail at 9:30 all at the same time. We will have coffee, drinks and food too so you will get a free breakfast out of the deal if you get there early.

On the rakes, just a few should do. The corners need to be well raked, and the flat sections need a light rake. But we don't need to rake the slopes much at all. It will be sucky until it packs but better in the long run.

Some other items needed:
  • Dave - if you will be there we could use that industrial weed eater
  • Ditch axes
  • loppers
  • a wheel barrow or wagon to haul stuff out there
  • shovels (to bury logs on the trail)
  • I will bring some tools for people to use if needed

BTW if you don't get there and need directions to the spot, my cell is 261-4999.

see yall in the AM!

Rakes... what kind? Heavy garden rakes, I'm guessing. Not a leaf rake, right.
I can bring one rake and one shovel.

Any need for saws tomorrow? I've got a small hand saw, a couple of bow saws, and a chainsaw. Sounds like all the cutting is done though. Let me know so I don't haul out a bunch of stuff that's not needed.

I can lend a body, but am not going to be of any help in regards to tools.

It's appreciated. The more people show up the more things we can get done. For those with tools just load them in your vehicle and we will see how much we have/ need before heading to the trail.

Heavy rake will be best for corners & a garden rake could be used on the flats.

I've got a couple of rakes, shovels, & cutting tools as spares if anyone needs em.

Can't make it tomorrow. But I can do Sunday for sure. Let me know if you guys are going out there. I got the email that said Sunday is questionable, but just letting you guys know.

A big THANK YOU for everyone that work on reclaiming the trails today.

We have just a little bit left - so we are on for Sunday.

Should not take long to finish - maybe 2 hrs or so. Let's meet around *9:15* at the Pate Trailhead. Hot coffee and snakes on tap.

If you have it, bring need loppers, shovel, rake, and/or grub hoe. I'll bring a few extras.

See you then.

Excellent! Had a blast as usual.

Dave and I gave her a ride forwards and backwards and we couldn't believe how awesome of a ride it is. This is going to be an incredible addition once it is worn in. Scott, we both agree that all the little hairpin reroutes we did today paid off. The trail flows incredibly well and will end up being a fast flowing trail!

Starting from the beginning of the first trail all the way to the end of twister, then taking the claypit and cutting back up the fireroad to start Horseshoe backwards, and then all the way back, we both had 11.4mi on our computers. Very respectable mileage!
