Help yourself, help others...

Instead of going past obstacles and thinking that someone should do something about it, why not do something about it yourself. The person you end up helping might be you in the end.

Some examples...

Trimming low branches (or getting the owner/manager/or municipality to do it)



Emailing local authorities about hazardous conditions in the path



or failures in infrastructure...




You'd be amazed what the difference can look like if you are the one person who stopped and did something...





(The ADA ramp has been marked for installation, due to be completed before Christmas)

See Something? Do Something!

I agree. I am in the process of clearing some bushes from the bike/ped path, that are making it virtually impossible to pass from either direction, walking or biking.

Edit: It took almost a month. But the county finally finished the job.

The bushes I had previously mentioned, were cleared about two weeks ago.
