Sunday I heard it often.
Unfortunately, I don't have images to share but 8 of us showed up for the trail building fun at Lobdell Reserve, John Gorrilla, Kyle Wingler, Mike Smith, Flyin Tuna, Eugene, Matt and one other guy whose name I forget. Kyle had already been out to mark a stretch of the trail with orange paint and after divvying up the tools, we headed into the thicket. After an hour, we exceeded expectations and had cleared the marked route. Nothing beats time in the woods, cutting, raking, scraping and that we were finished so soon, some of us began looking at our watches and making plans for lunch. OK, kidding of course as now it was
time to begin "benching" which is to cut into the uphill side of the trail to flatten it and make water run-off more efficient. Check out this mean looking tool, used by trail builders the world over, as well as at Lobdell.
