Many thanks to Dave Wiltrout for underpinning the Patsy Lake Bridge. We will get several more years of service from it.
The original bridge had been in service since the very beginning of the CAMBA trail system in 1993. After all those years of use and at least once incident of an ATV riding one-wheel on the bridge, one below, the bridge had taken on the look of an old sway back farm horse. Dave Wiltrout, a retired veterinarian, is one of several volunteers who have been helping build new singletrack in the Namakagon Cluster this summer. Our other ace volunteers, John Leighton and Stan Waczack, have made some other needed improvements to the approach and exit from the bridge, removing several large roots, which intimidated some and could easily trip up less experienced riders.
