What Blue Clay brings to mind...

(updated: Jan 28, 2010)

Quote from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Just substitute trails for castle.

Listen, lad. I've built this kingdom up from nothing. When I started here, all there was was swamp. All the kings said I was daft to build a castle in a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em. It sank into the swamp. So, I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third one. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. An' that's what your gonna get, lad -- the strongest castle in these islands.

We're on the third one now. Anyone up for rebuilding?

Remember that right after the king makes this statement, a knight comes in and kills nearly everyone in the castle to rescue the prince who wants to sing and dance.

Just saying.

What the hell happened to you guys down in Wilmington?... Has the whole Blue Clay trail been demolished by the city? I thought the city was supposed to be working with the local MTB community...

I dunno. Me too. Hence the rebuild the castle in the swamp reference. Bridges I can see if they're not meeting code, provided there is a plan to replace in a timely fashion. But removing all the log crossings, log piles, and small technical stuff really bugs me. And then all the ppl trying to ride through the muck right now.
