    Excited about the improvements! I'm off trail building for a bit though as I just had an opperation. Hopefully in a month I'll have a shovel in hand.

    Great turnout for the first trailcare day of the Sinister Trailcare Series 2009. 17 people braved questionable weather to work on the Lincoln Logs trail. The weather held and we created 3 skinnies each with ride around options. The kicker in the middle section of the trail was improved and it now has a better entrance and exit. A big thanks goes out to "trail boss" Mike along with Dave, Don, Steve, Bob, Bill, Aaron, DR, Alan, Kevin, Clair, Paul, Vincent, Karl, John, and Pete for the work today.

    A good days work and the crew heads out to eat then ride. DR did ride the Gruitr he won last year.

    Thanks again for all those who came out and start bringing extra derailleurs and derailleur hangers to Nam.
