Update. Nobody showed up today to help. We estimate two to three months to the next ride day with one or two people doing all the work assuming we do not have anything better to do between now and then. Thanks All!

Me and my friends showed up.

Grumpy Greg was there when I tried to roll backwards down a hill on my bike to back out of the branches of a fallen tree blocking the trail, and a dead limb stopped me just when the foot pegs were over the dip in the trail. Kind of a long fall from there.

Mad Greg was there when I was marking a new piece of trail and kept running into the trail I marked a half-mile ago in an area with a lot of trail winding close to itself.

Scaredy Greg was there when I had to climb over logs in the high grass and the sound of rustling grass and scraping logs sounded so much like a rattlesnake.

Delirious Greg was there when I got hungry and drank all my water, a long walk away from my bike.

Lucky Greg was there when I desperately left the trail and walked straight through the woods to get my bike, and I went right to it.

And, finally, Happy Greg was there when I got to my car and sat in front of the A/C blowing on high, and ate the best PB&J I ever tasted.

All of that was before lunch! We had a great time.

Greg

P.S. Never saw or heard one snake in 5 1/2 hours. Strange but true.

Larry,

By the time I saw your Friday mid-day post (on Saturday) I already had plans. Give us a little more notice before you flame us... Or just text me. You should have my #.

:-)

Yes, I also need to know if we are cutting trail or not so that I can make other plans if we are not. Thanks

I don't know yet if Larry will be in town or not.

I will be at Powell Ranch again on Sunday. I usually get there at 9:00. If anyone wants to come, just come when you can and leave when you need to.

We can't always commit to a specific work day early in the week. Larry and I are busy guys. Sometimes it's impossible to predict what's going to come up. That makes it hard for people to make it out to help, but that's reality for you. Life happens.

Equipment and supplies: Loppers, small saws, and pruning tools are about all we need. The fallen trees give us a reason to reroute trail, which is not a bad thing. If it's too big for hand tools, we can go around it. If something HAS to be moved, we can come back with a chainsaw another day. An old set of gear is nice to wear for abrasion and thorn protection. Boots, gloves, water, food. It's hot, it's harder work than it looks like, and we'll be walking a lot. Prepare like an athlete.

I have enough ribbon for the work day.

See ya!

Greg
