I spent a most satisfying 6 hours today at Shawnee Mission Park with 3-6 others from Earth Riders Trails Association building about an eighth mile of new trail. I’d previously worked only on existing trails so it was interesting to see what goes into a new one. I spent most of the time using a pick to dig many, many rocks out of the path while others followed – cutting, grading, and compacting the trail surface. I apparently got into a bit of poison ivy but surprisingly, no ticks.
Who the heck am I?
