Only recently retired.
Just to note that in late 2006, only a month or so after the IMBA Trail Care Crew visited. @sj_john
, myself, and several others started routing the trail (under the supervision of forestry staff). We were young and employed then. But still had riders turn down invitations to join us in the work by saying, "if I was retired like you guys, I would help". Which was an incorrect and lame excuse, that would always make us laugh. But not laugh as hard as the riders that would beg out by saying *if I wasn't in training, I would help out*.
Thats the sort of trail jocularity that has kept us motivated and having fun for 17 years.
