Baders gave us a number for a Matt that may be able to do a deal for side cutter and then trade in the red hydraulic with arm and get one that is like the County’s. Tractor out with old drag trying to level out the trails that aren’t bad behind airport, so we do not have to hire it out. Most of trail 71, down to Big Pine to Chestnut have been checked.
