After the storms last Thursday, I woke up to a gorgeous day on Friday morning. I hit up Chick-en-fila for breakfast and then went to the trail. It was almost "unrideable" in Paulding County, and Polk wasn't great either. I griped to Chris that there was so much debris from the previous day as I headed west. Somewhere around mile 6 on the Ladiga, there was what looked like a husband and wife team hard at work with two lawn tractors stopped in the middle of the trail. It smelled like burnt belt or clutch, and the man was under it trying to get it up and running. Probably hit one of those foot-high cracks in the trail or something. They had a few miles of trail cleaned which was nice. I turned around in Piedmont, and once I was back over the state line, it was bad again. Got a sidewall flat in Rockmart because I kept picking up junk that was lodging itself in the calipers. Once I was right about to Coots, there was Chris with this fancy ATV and a clean trail for the next 35 miles. Thanks, Chris!

Chris is "Da Man"!

He needs a bunch of "At a Boys", with a crisp twenty attached.

Jacksons do help. But any picture of dead Presidents (Andy, Ben too) help.
The fuel bill from last Friday was $40.
We run Premium gas in the air cooled engines, even so, sometimes when they get shutdown, they still try to keep running

Also, need help forming and organizing a Trail Team.
Lots more to do than just work.

Thinking quarterly meetings for the team.

Opportunities:
1) Help organize this effort
2) Find a quiet restaurant or meeting spot to hold meetings
3) Recruiting
4) Public awareness (people seem to think I have a fun job)
5) Clean, wash equipment
5) Organize work parties (tunnel needs this)
6) Raise money/donations for equipment, expenses
7) Your idea here
Cool etc

Perhaps a Facebook Trail Team group would be a good place to start?

I'm in Chris.

I'm now issuing a challenge for anyone that reads this forum to jump on board!

Don't be bashful, Chris will find something for all ages that needs to be done.

That is all.

Joe

Oh I almost forgot, I'll cover that $40 fuel bill from last week. Remind me Chris next time I see you.
