« on: January 02, 2009, 07:32:03 AM »
There will not ba a workday tomorrow. I have not had any RSVP's and Eric is the only one here who has said anything. It's always hard to do this around Christmas and New Years people have to much going on. So we Will have one next month.
Thanks Art

No trash bags required, we just have to make sure the refuse is well off of the trail.

I picked up a few water bottles the other day and saw at least two more that I couldn't fit in my CamelBak. I'll have to bring some bungy cords next time  ::).Trash bags are a good idea. I'd really like to think that said water bottles fell off someones bike as opposed to being purposely left on the trails.

That or those gel shots I seemingly find everywhere. Must have been used and then accidentally fell out of said pockets of user...

Newbies seem to leave a lot of plastic chain guards laying around as well. They most likely come off while skidding all the downhills.

Saw one of those super soft comfort seats laying at the end of bridges a few months back. Seems like some people have no problem leaving their old tubes hanging in a tree. One would assume that if you had room for a spare tube then you have room to take it back to the parking lot for disposal.

I notice a ton of the energy gel/bar wrappers and tubes too, it is pretty lame.  You can kind of understand the big comfy gel seat, the chain guards, reflectors and toe strap parts in the woods.  The poor guys that dropped 'em were probably in an anaerobic haze when they lost the stuff. 

SFG, regarding the pruning if the next workday is cancelled, what do you call a guy with no arms and no legs leaning against the wall?

a downhiller that crashed one time too many! :D

I try to pick up trash when I see it, tubes and broken chains just amaze me though. You know that wasn't an accident, they purposely left stuff like that wrapped around a tree. >:(

I'm glad to hear so many of us take the time to stop and pick up trash. :)
I wish we could get people to stop buying bottle water and start using water bottles. You know, the ones designed to fit the bottle cages and are reusable.
I became insane with long intervals of horrible sanity.
