    Revised equipment list

    I went out to the site today & there's a bit more to the project that I didn't see when there was still snow on the ground.

    Besides the wooden structure, these guys were digging holes for material to make banked turns... but they did a really bad job.
    Also, the wood structure has been dismantled and is laying in a pile on the ground, nails protruding. I think Greg will still be taking a chainsaw to the mess to make it smaller so it can be hauled up to the Gasline and out to the road.

    Besides the hauling, the rest of the work will be filling in postholes and holes that were dug for material to build dirt jumps. So, a few changes to the equipment list:

    shovels - lots of shovels
    buckets
    garden rakes
    metal detector (if someone has one)
    I don't know how practical wheelbarrows would be, but the BOB trailers would be great. I can bring mine.
    long pants/sleeves, bug head net - or bug dope.

    Please put your name on any tools so you don't lose track of anything. If you know you can make it, let us know in advance - that way we can let the BLM know how many will be there for pizza after the work is done.

    Thanks everyone for your support on this project. See you there!
