Typical management style answer....

Andy, as I said several posts earlier, the Grinder needs flow, but "the devil is in the details." You've got some good ideas-- everybody acknowledges that. But unless you're going to show up and work out the details, that's all they're ever going to be-- ideas.
Your approach was to ride it the day after, and offer your expert opinion. That sounds more like management to me. On traildays, I'm just another grunt with a shovel, working under the Trail Coordinator. But the job gets done that way.
If your priorities are elsewhere, fine-- but you forfeit the right to complain about the way the work is getting done.
