    Medical information - New diagnosis for trail builders

    The DSM-5 has defined a condition we have all known, seen, felt and struggled with. "Shovelthermia"

    In hypothermia, the sufferer becomes increasingly unaware of their peril due to cooling of the senses. In Shovelthermia, "the sufferer fails to recognise the malignant fever to dig, becoming more withdrawn from "normal" and family life, isolating themselves in the bush and tool shed and eventually expiring under the red tape of lawyers, governments and land managers".

    You have been warned. See this sad specimen

    Clearly left of centre. Somehow working on trail in the dark makes sense to the Shovelthermic mind.

    We are waiting for it to become epidemic here, but it isn't happening. Now we are looking for donors who will provide serum to digunize the local population.

    Please help

    Able to coax suffers of this disease out of the woods with the promise of cold beer and hot food. Preferably with IPA's and smoked/grill pork products. Warning : Keep new gloves and tool sharpening instruments away from inflicted individuals. Relapse possible. Relapse certain with the sight of new power tools, keep away from carriers of this disease.

    They say the key to recovery is being aware of the problem. But with this disease the solution is always more trail work! Just accept the fact that more features need to be built and existing features need upgrade and maintenance. Just like most addictions and aberrant behavior it usually gets worse - keep up the good work and post pics!

    The diseased know not about weather, fashion or what makes sense to the rest of the population

    Test riding seems to be a variant of the disease

    Thankfully this is a positively sociopathic disease with positive outcomes (just not for the sufferer)
