Alright, seems to be turning into a good crew! Let's bust that stuff out quick and get some cold-as-balls climbing in after!

Why you gotta be such a Debbie Downer...

I'm not planning on climbing after trail day today, but seriously dude, it doesn't get dark until 5:30. If Brentucky wants to crank, there'll be time...

Thanks to everyone who came out to work on the trail. I think we had 13 people in all. Got a lot of work done. Knocked off around 3pm so plenty of time to get out and climb or get back to watch the UK game.

I didn't say it was mean...just a buzz kill. I've been lurking on here long enough to know your game.

We had a great, successful day of work with an awesome crew of peeps, and yes, Brentucky even got to climb afterwards. I just opted for a cold beer instead.

We basically rerouted the trail back to it's original path near the downed tree, created a bunch of drainages, and fixed some low spots/wet spots, as well as all sorts of other stuff that will hopefully help the longevity of the trail. It was productive, and even fun!

That's right pigman, Jimmy's got my back, yo, so you bet just step off, bro! However, what I did after a bit of trail day working did not qualify as climbing. It would be better described as a whiny, shit show where I decided not to continue on past my warm-up. Dustonian on the other hand sent Infectious after a days work.
