Water the trails?  Was just talking about that with my riding buddy this morning.

Can Wilderness Trails borrow it to cover the sandy sections?  Boyette and Croom too?

I borrowed a pump and used it at Alafia for 2 days before the race and it was just Amazing. You just  need 2 people, a pond or lake, a couple hundred feet of water hoses and a rake. Much better than walking up hills with 5 gallon buckets.

I was wondering how you planned on watering the trails.  The pump sounds much more feasible than what I was thinking.  Which was to have all of the racers and spectators pee on the course prior to the race.  ;)
