Thanks to all who showed up and helped: Pete, Mark, Jamie, Mike F. Randy, Jeremy, Norbert, Mike C. and Wendi), and Travis (who hauled many, many loads of gravel in my rickety old wheelbarrow), and Dan, who brought us breakfast pizzas (we really like him
). We got a lot done today!
The new bypass is not yet open, as there is a tree to be removed, and a bit more gravel to be added. As it is generally still pretty wet out there, I would wait until next weekend (at least) to ride out there anyway. I will see about getting it opened by then, provided we get no more appreciable rain.
