I just got into that mode.
I felt like if I couldn't write something entertaining I wouldn't bother.
I had my first official TW day as the MORE liason to Cedarville.
I had 4 people show up from MORE and Oxon hill bike club.
Not too bad.
We spent the time tearing up beaver damns.
What has this got to do with trailwork?
Well Cedarville is on swampy flat land. Streams run all through it. You can go more than a mile before your crossing a stream. THe beavers damn up the streams and they end up flooding the trails.
This was a new experience for me. I found out those little buggers can really build some tough structures. I ending up working in water that was about 3 foot deep. I didn't really want to but that was about the only way to get the damns.
We did this on a Saturday. I rode back by the work area on the next Thursday.
The little bastards had completely rebuilt.
Ooh I was pissed.
I tried to get a picture with the cell phone but nothing came out.
