After we busted our asses on the trail with over 140 volunteer hours this spring, mother nature stuck it to us. Atlanta had a big storm blow through and Clear Lake state park has upwards of 40 trees down they are dealing with. Expect the trail to the east to be a little more like a cyclocross course, no idea on the west.


sounds like they have firewood...

:P

And what would be considered "top shelf" stuff at the El-Bo Inn? The Guiness we had a couple years back?

And Jeff and Dan already got in trouble for firing up saws in the park, management is unhappy. There is a ton down on Tower Road, if you beat us there, have at it. :)

Not planning on beating anyone anywhere (all weekend, actually)

Also not planning on bringing any wood preparation equipment.

Hard to believe the park would have any issue with us helping out....
