Thurs Feb 22: We took a shot at Rockhouse trail and cleared up the trail until just below the rim trail intersection. It was a warm climb with three saws due to the work that had been prescreened last week. Thanks to Jim Upchurch, Rich Sullivan, Steve Jersey, Steve Dennison, Frank Retter, and Michael OBrien. It was a 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM work day.
Thurs, Feb 8: We took on the Chunky Gal trail again today and we got a good chunk of trail cleared. One crew started at Tusquitee gap and with loppers and brushcutters worked north to the USFS road crossing, the other crew with loppers and chainsaws jumped ahead from the road crossing to the get the trail cleared toward the were we left off from Bob Allison Campground. It all worked out and that section is now clear post "irma". Thanks to Tom Shope, Dave Richardson, Jim Upchurch, Bill Johnston and Michael OBrien. We had a 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM day.
Thurs, Feb 1: We had a small crew turn out to beat the rain and did a great job on the Chunky Gal Trail from Tusquitee Gap toward Tate Gap, this section had lots of lopping to do and a bit of chain saw work as well, we got it cleared to the ridge line coming out of the gap with lots of mist and fog but no rain. Thanks to Bill Johnston, Tom Shope and GaryCarter for getting out today. It was a 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM day.
Thurs, Jan 25th: We went to Jackrabbit Mt trail and did a little footbridge repair. See the attached "after Photo". Thanks to Jim Upchurch, Bill Johnston, Michael OBrien, Steve Dennison, and Gary Carter for getting out on a very fine winter day. We did a short 9:00AM to noon workday. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
