    I really want to help out with Lock 4, but have to work all weekend. Wish there was a way around bad timing but anywhoo. Will there be another Lock 4 work day soon? Any chance we could have a school day one in the next few weeks?

    I have to work Saturday Darryl & if I can get done (which I think I can) I'll be there.

    I can't afford Bonnaroo tickets anyway.

    If you people don't show up... I don't want to see any whinning in the trail condition thread about how bad L4 is.

    I've probably been one of the worst at making it to work days over the years but Mike is right, this work and Lock 4 really needs to get done. We're all missing out on some great trail because of a few short sections that need a fix. Appreciate all the planning and thought you guys have put into this.

    If you love Lock 4, try to bump this workday up on the priority list for one day. No guilt intended, just stressing that there are big rewards in trail from this workday.

    I'll be coming straight from my family reunion at Natchez Trace, hope to be there by lunch. (Going from one disfunctional family to another, what a weekend, )

    Hey Darryl, I can work the morning shift. If it doesn't rain, I'm planning to bring a tandam axle trailer. We could cut and load, haul to the trailhead, then drag with the 4-wheeler into the trail.
