I agree, Jake. The CCC doesn't have a clue as to what doing REAL trail work is. When Dan broke out the leaf blower, I just couldn't believe it. I wanted to say something, but just figured it would do no good anyway. I read on the CCC's facebook page that Frank cleared most of Probert. I haven't gone out there to check, but I am skeptic as to what he means by "cleared". BTW, I do like your post on their page, good job! The hilarious part of Dan helping was that I was throwing stuff back on the trail from trimming AFTER he went through with the leaf blower.
I have also been cutting things back further to "future proof" the growth. Though, on some parts of the trails (grassy areas) I don't think that will do much good. We need that *beep* DR Trimmer that Dan said they had (if they actually have it).
I guess we are pretty much on our own out there. And after spending 7 or so hours in the last couple of days clearing the trails, I am FUBAR. My arm is constantly numb and cannot even hold onto a glass. I want to get back out there, but I don't want to do permanent damage to my arm, so I have to rest it a while.
If anyone else is reading this, WE NEED HELP OUT THERE! An hour or two (or as much time as you can spare) of cutting back the growth would be helpful. Not blowing, unless it's after we cut back the trails.
