no snakes in winter

It a good thing that there are no snakes and poison oak out in winter! I have the rest of the section marked accross from corby. Let me say that it will be screaming fast because I followed the contor lines as close as I could. The down side is about following contor lines instead of swinging around obsticals is all the down timber. There are logs everywhere across the marked trail. Everything is marked clearly so it would be very helpful if those of you with chainsaws could start cuting what you could out of the way. Those without chainsaws could start cuting small brush out with clipers. Those without clipers could use a rake to clear path of leaves and sticks. If you don't have any of those just get creative. The more we can get done before or during the time the prisoners on the work crew are clearing the trails the more we will get done. There is even talk of getting them longer to do more if we have enough support. That would allow us to get the old girl scout camp done too adding at least 5-7 more trails to the 4-5 we are going to finnish in a few weeks. That is the posibility of 12 miles of new trails done before spring adding to the 4.5 miles at corby. 16 to 20 miles of trail just think about that, that doesn't even count krug! The city needs to see we are serious about this. Lets have a work day and get everyone together say next Sat. and put a big dent in it. Call me at the shop 816-279-1500 lets make arrangements.

One more thing -

Shawn, can you mark up a Google Earth Map to show the existing trails at Corby and the new connector trails you are working on along the Parkway? Sounds like I missed a couple off-shoots while grooming Corby. I would like to pick them up one of these days.
