Massacre Opens the Door to Big Changes at Growlers

Thanks to everyone who came out on Sunday to work in very difficult conditions at the Chainsaw Massacre.

We had things dialed pretty effectively, with 17 saws and 26 swampers spread out over several square miles. Our goals were to (1) re-establish some semblance of the old Creek Trail line to eliminate the long gravel stretch in the middle of the system and to (2) begin working on a trail along the north side of the 312 and then turning north in what used to be the vicinity of the old Big Wow.

It always amazes me that we exceed what I project. I was anticipating that we wouldn’t even hit dirt. Instead, the entire line from the Jeep Trail to Without a Paddle is clear. Yes, it still needs buffing but we are down to dirt.

Big progress was also made on the other side of the road. These are both going to be 25-year trails so we are determined to get them right.

We are going to need a massive crew at the Mega-Build on December 17th to get everything done, but I think it’s possible. If you’re not signed up, get your name on the list here.

These are the people who deserve your thanks –
