Lots of little chatter bumps, I mean lots! We almost had the single track done then were derailed by the new dirt we had ordered for our pump track. So this spring my intent is to get the trail done first and then get the pump track completed. I have heard that a rototiller is a great option, but is that really the best option? Looking for some suggestions if you would. Also just found out this week that the twp is buying some adjacent land, and trails got first dibs. Guess I better ask for more vacation time to build some more trails! I get to scout the new area Feb 1st.

It is pretty neat out this way. The TWP might be purchasing another piece of land in the very near future that would give us townies a dirt trail from behind the village office to access the park. It would double the mileage that we currently have, not to mention the wooded land will have more "new loops" that I will get to add. Very cool, but long ways to go before its complete. Its just great to see where it was a year ago to where its headed now. I hear you with the volunteer time, hopefully I can develop a few new volunteers out my way to help out. We've had some calls already about our pump track so it looks like were gaining some ground anyway.
