Tim from Greenwood will bring the trailer with the mowers to Key Bridge. We will meet there at 7AM on Saturday. This will be at the "old" side of the road parking area.
Saturday: I am in. Money is in. Tim D (Greenwood) is in. We need more people.
Are you in?
We can also try to plan a Sunday 7/11 finish it up day out there. I can not lead it. Can you? The plan will be to fix the bridge, primarily. Secondarily, run the mowers on whatever didn't get cut on Saturday. We also need to cut the last two miles of TC.
Who is in for Saturday, 7/10?
Sunday, 7/11? But we need a leader for Sunday before we progress much further on that.
I will take on the bridge planning if the work can be done later. I need to look at it first before hatching a plan. If someone already has a plan and can put something together for the 10th-11th, count me in to help.
In for Sat. May try to ride out and scope out the bridge situation tomorrow evening, long pants and all.
They are stamping man cards at the bridge for sure. That could be brutal. But the the intel is priceless. We also need a report of trees that are down in there and whether or not we need a saw. I'd be shocked if we don't.
Stinging nettle, long cane and ticks will be your biggest issues.
I am thinking we don't need this many bodies showing up at 7AM. Let me figure it out, but I am thinking if we stagger the times, we can mow in shifts and get a ton done. We just gotta be sure we can pull the trailer back to NA or close by.
I am in for sure. 7am is best for me. I can do whatever is needed. Anything i should bring (other than gloves)? I've got a battery powered hedge trimmer...lighter than SORBA's gas powered, but not as powerful. I have two batteries for it, no idea what kind of run time it has.
The first 2 miles heading north from Key Bridge are the worst. Beyond the 5+ trees that are down in that section, the first bridge has been moved, but is still there. Might be able to winch it back into place, or dismantle it and rebuild it. This is looking back south. Its walkable as it is, but I wouldn't ride it.
The last bridge in the first 2 miles is flat out gone, about 40 ft downstream. I don't think there's much that can be done about it aside from starting over. Where it crossed is a deep gully that you've got to scramble through. It's a b!tch with a bike.
