We're toiling away in the new section of Trash this week. Making all the parts and framing bridges to connect both ends of the trail.
The first vollie night (Oct 3rd) got the ball rolling with some rockwork and benching for approx. 100m of trail. We're hitting it up again on October 10th for the last trail night of the year: dirt burgers!
Uh, I mean dirt and burgers (and beer)!

We worked our way down Yummy Numby ...
Thanks to some moisture falling from the sky, we went back into Comfortably Numb to continue smoothing it out. We've made it through the Golden Door and are working our way back towards Yummy Numby capping our fresh armouring from earlier this summer.
We've also added more rock and capping to the new start (Secret North)... the first "customers" cleaned it without a sweat!

Clearly, I have not been keeping up to date with my trail reports...
The heavy snowload delayed our usual "crack of march" trailwork and has kept us busy on the chainsaws clearing deadfall. Keep us posted if you see any new ones (firstname.lastname@example.org) pictures and geotags help with saw selection...
