    I think I agree with most everything that has been said, but I have two-cents burning a hole in my pocket.

    This business of grass roots activism is not for everybody. Having been a volunteer for over a decade, and dealt with the same feelings about sporadic participation, I focus on my own reasons for participating:
    First, it's the one small thing I can do to help keep access to our trails.
    Second, being on the mountain gives me the opportunity to interact with other enthusiasts, face to face. When I talk to them, make the correlation of volunteering to address land use issues, I see a different attitude.
    Third, the more people I meet with that common interest, the more I feel committed to the concept of influencing the culture of our community.
    Fourth, my time spent observing, and interacting with enthusiasts give me a perspective I don't often see expressed. Last year I shared those observations, in writing, to support a grant application for the Clear Creek Ranger District to put extra seasonal employees on the ground.
    Fifth, complaining about that one person, or group of enthusiasts won't fix anything, won't educate anyone, won't affect the overall culture of outdoor enthusiasts.

    Like I said, it's not for everybody!

    I do appreciate everyone who can make the time to volunteer, every little bit helps.

    I truly want to participate. Unfortunately I had an employee that quit with no notice. I think clean ups are most important. My husband was going to cover for me but has to attend a funeral. I can't figure out a way to get there, I am very sorry.

    No need to be sorry Jamie, life gets in the way for all of us. I planned on being there myself, then life happens.

    I'll be there with my daughter. We can't commit to a LONG day as we have dinner plans (and I'm the cook). Excuse us if we leave around lunch-time. I've packed a few large yard bags as well as a few kitchen-size garbage bags and a kitty-litter bucket and scooper to use on glass -n- brass in fire pits. Time and traffic conditions permitting, I may give my daughter another driving lesson on a flat dirt part of the trail before we leave. I think the meadow portion that is in or near the middle of the trail should be good if I remember correctly!

    See you at the ranger station!

    Everyone got off to a good start. I was able to reach Brant by phone before I lost service in the canyon, he had everything printed off for the group.
