Boy it sure was nice to see a great group at the IMBA weekend. I was a real
morale boost to spend the weekend with like-minded people and talk about
trails. It is something you miss when you are speeding through the woods on
Just wanted to take a minute and recognize a few people:
-Jill and Chris from IMBA who brought us all together. It was neat to see
some amazing trail pictures and learn some good layout and construction
tips. The scariest thing is that they sounded just like Bob......maybe he
actually knows what he is talking about??
-Ranger Hyde for keeping up with all the food and room needs. Larry kept
one step ahead of us and made sure that everything was ready. Ask him about
his excavation next time you see him.
-Ward and Mylinda for providing a place for the crew to stay.
- Tarheel Trailblazers for there participation. I think they accounted for
about half of the people at each event. We had about 35 people on Saturday
and 20 on Sunday even with the relatively short notice and iffy weather.
-And lastly, Joe Guerrero who made another $100 donation to the cause. Joe
has done this several times and without us asking. It is nice to have a few
dollars that we can use on snacks and small tools. If some of the other
folks on the list can't make it out to work, this is another way to support
the trail. Maybe think of it like the Beech Springs/Poplar Tent trail where
you pay each time to ride. Add up the number of times you have used the
Itusi Trail and drop by a donation. Just a thought.
