Just because Jim is old, doesn't make him a classic.

The white car is a Cord or Auburn and the black one is a Jag. Looks like I'm not the only one that scored a perfect sunset this weekend.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR 10/22/11 TRAIL APPRECIATION EVENT

Dear AMA D37 Sports
Two of the four registered volunteers have cancelled for our 10/22 Trail Appreciation Event next Saturday. We have not heard back yet from the other two, so we may be looking at no volunteers.
Everyone complains about losing trails, but Stewards has been able to keep them open, in part by formally adopting and agreeing to maintain trails since 2005. Stewards members need to continue to make good on that if they want the trails to stay open. Simple enough put up or loose trails.
While everyone would just prefer to enjoy the trails, the fact of the matter is the Forest Service lacks the manpower to maintain them all. So without our help many of the trails could be closed.
We need a few good people who want to put some love back in their trails. The 10/22 project will most likely be Dry Meadow Trail & Little Dry which are what some might say expert single track trail. We need to clean out the water bars we built last year and cut back brush to keep the trails open. Due to remote nature of the event this will be a dirt bike only project.
Please reply to this email if you would like to help or use this link to register now and help keep the trails you love open and in good condition.
Stewards has over 2000 members, but only about 1% step up to volunteer. It would be great if everyone would invest just one day a year into our proven Trail Appreciation volunteer program to help keep trails open. Many thanks to the few who are doing their part, but they cannot do it all. We need more to step up. Another possibility would be for Stewards to hire people to help maintain the trails so if you cannot volunteer please consider donating instead.
If you can't make the 10/22 event please see if you can help out on any of the other Stewards of the Sequoia Trail Appreciation Days and then Register for that date so we can contact you with the location. Come up and work to help the trails one day and then ride the next, a real Win-Win.
TRAIL APPRECIATION DAYS
10/22/11 Location to be determined depending on weather and soil conditions
11/12/11 Location to be determined depending on weather and soil conditions
12/3/11 Location to be determined depending on weather and soil conditions
Those who Register will get a great lunch provided by Sierra Gateway Market. About one week prior to each event we will determine the project location based on weather and soil conditions. Those who register will receive staging information at that time.
Working on the trails is not only fun but rewarding. Stewards Trail Appreciation program has proven to be one of the best ways to help stop trail closure and also guarantees the Forest Service and BLM will look far more favorably at ways to work with us to keep trails open.
PLEASE CLICK HERE TO REGISTER and be part of the solution
You can learn more at http://stewardsofthesequoia.org/events-schedule.html
Is there a way to sign up on an email list to keep up on future events?

this campground is amazing, varied terrain, expansive layout, lots of good facilities, and it's like being in a forest.

we learned valuable lessons here; hope i don't need to use it to any of you PPs



just inside of that cottage, is this




if you're world famous, you get to speak here; that amphitheater was packed friday and saturday nights



don't know what this bird doing here



ken making good observation on this bike, instead of the beautiful rider from south africa



during the break, jim and i found the time to ride some cambria dirt....
