Cadillac Pathway Trail Day: Oct 9th or 23rd or both!

Postby volklgirl » October 1st, 2010, 3:19 pm

I need some help hauling sand back up the hill and putting in water bars on the erosion reroute - I've already hauled up 4 wheelbarrows of sand for a grand total of about 2 feet of reclaiming. :cry: So, I'm willing to spring for pizza and pop/beer or whatever for anyone interested in helping out with this back-breaking work.

I'm available Oct 9th and 23rd. Post up here or PM me if you're willing to join me in the suffering!

I have one wheelbarrow and a small shovel. I'm guessing we'll need at least one more wheelbarrow and shovel. I have leaf rakes, but a regular rake may be of help, too.

If someone wants to help out but isn't interested in hauling sand, I have some weed whacking that needs to be done as well.

Here's the area that needs filling-in:

Slight change of plans....

A second set of eyes looked over the erosion area and we've concluded that we're going to leave the sand where it is and just install some big water bars instead.

I've still got raking to do to cover the giant sand pit and help fill in the erosion ditch and there's plenty of weed whacking to do, so I won't turn down any help that's offered; however, I don't think we need even 1 full work day much less 2.

I'll skip the shovel and bring out and saw and brush cutter. With three or four people we'll get erosion control in place quickly.
