Observations:  Our second official TM Session. Today we worked on a planned blue trail re-route, up off of the Elm Drive entrance.   Today's crew was 2 CTNEMBA reps, one mountain biker and 3 TVA trail stewarts.  We re-routed about 100 feet of trail along the hillside, which required a full bench cut the whole way.  After I went through the process and showed a diagram, we tackled the work swiftly.   We ended up completely the benching in a little over 2 hours and then focused out attention to a small wood bridge across a muddy area and we opted to remvoe it and go with a rock bridge.   This took 4 of us with my rock crib to move 2 very large rocks over and between the 4 of us came up with an awesome solution.
