Yep... it looks bad out there. The radar shows that the rain is moving out. Hopefully by 9:00 it will be gone, but it also says it could rain throughout the day. :roll: I'm still going to head out there and hope for the best!

Ohhh...it's raining :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :D :D :D :D

Just get out there already and you'll see the rain won't hurt you...

I have been on countless rainy workdays and as long as you dress for the weather there is no problem. You'll see how quickly you warm up and and stay warm.

Now stop looking for excuses :wink: :D :D :D :D :D

BTW I'll be there tommorow regardless.

I really want to thank everyone who came out today. The weather was so bad this morning that I feared no one would show. I was wrong! We had a great crew and finished 2/3s of the lost loop section. We have one more section to finish the lost loop, but couldn't work on it today. However, by riding down the access road, we do have a continuous loop out there.

We got so much done today, that we'll be able to get projects done tomorrow that we were saving for later! It may be a bit unorganized in the morning as we will be putting some projects together on the spot!

Thanks again for today, and I look forward to an even better day tomorrow! Let's hope for some sunshine! :D

That's great news, Dave.
Any change in the plan to meet at the normal trailhead shelter on Sunday?

Remember, everybody: set your clocks ahead tonight!

Dan... same plan! We'll meet at the normal trailhead at 9:00. We got so much done at the lost loop, that all of our work tomorrow will be toward the front of the park. I have a special project planned for you! :wink:

Well, we had a great time today (sunday). Thanks for all of the organization, the T-shirt, and the great time. The kids had a blast! we hiked all the way to the lost loop, saw our names on the bridge, and saw 4 deer. It was fun seeing you all and we are glad that we were able to help a little bit.

Schwinn - I was cracking up when you kept on telling your kids "Work Harder.... Work Harder"

I had a great time as well. It was nice to finally put faces to all the names here.
