We finished everything south of the power line today. We got a lot done. Thanks to those that came out and helped. Even though the numbers were not what I had hoped for, we had a great group of hard workers. Jake was by far the MVP. That boy can throw branches like nobody's business.
The next workday date will be determined shortly. I realize people have stuff going on and I appreciate the time people are able to give. Maybe I didn't do a good enough job hyping this event, maybe people had stuff going on, or maybe the prospect of storms turned people away. I'm not sure. But I just want to be honest, we need better turnouts than we had today if this trail is going to open and stay open.
I think if we have one more workday like the first one we had this year at squaw, we could open this trail. I have a different plan for next time in terms of getting people and equipment where it needs to be so we can hit the ground running next time. The corridor will be cleared all the way through within the next couple of days. Which will just leave the need for an army of mcleod work like today.
If you're gonna be dumb, you better be tough.
