    Defeated Creek Work Day, May 27?

    I have a friend who has volunteered the use of his 4-wheeler to carry herbicide to spray the weedy/grassy areas. It'd be great to get a group to blow, rake, weed-eat, clear debris while we're at it. We're tentatively planning Saturday, May 27.

    I know of one tree blocking the trail. With the recent storms, based on downed trees at Lock 4, there may be others to get out of the way.

    If you'd be interested in helping, post up and I'll keep you posted on developments.

    Thanks!

    I plan to work 2-3 hours then ride a loop. Come on!

    Best trail in middle TN!

    Gary,

    Ruthie and i were out there yesterday and were thinking the exact same thing. we have a renewed interest in getting the trail back to its 2010 prime. she is home with the kid now and is really wanting to have something "reasonably close" to ride.

    i get back from Taiwan that morning, but we do our best to try to make it. i will also let any other smith county people know about it as well.

    thanks for organizing.

    Thanks, Steve and Ruthie! As far as I know it's still on. I will keep posted. I'm going to be dependent on the machine to get the herbicide up there. I sure don't want to hike up and down with a 3 gal. backpack sprayer!

    Homer - Have you posted this on the FB Pages yet? I've about quit looking here (sadly)

    I might be able to help some. But I think my wife has plans for me.

    Gary, is Brad going to be driving up there to take his ATV? My going or not going may depend on being able to finish replacing parts on my truck/getting paid by clients on time to be able to still buy fuel. Or I might be able to catch a ride with Brad if he'll be there.

    My buddy with the 4-wheeler wound up having to go out of town this weekend. Going to have to figure out another date. Looks like it's going to be raining until then, anyway.
