Come on out to help us get some work done and earn hours for the end of year volunteer raffle.

SATURDAY, JUNE 7
Meet 09:00 AM BIG BEAR DISCOVERY CENTER

The focus for 2N04 will be general light maintenance and armoring the Arrastre Creek crossing. We will depart the BBDC to pick up shale rock/gravel, load it into my M416, and transport it to 2N04.

After we have completed the 2N04 work we will move over to the 2N02 shooting area and conduct a cleanup of debris left behind by irresponsible target shooters. NAXJA will provide disposable work gloves for this project.

SATURDAY NIGHT CAMPING
Volunteers only. You may camp if you volunteer for Saturday's work, Sunday's work, or both.
NORTH SHORE WORK CENTER (https://www.google.com/maps/place/North+Shore+Campground/@34.267228,-117.164207,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x80c4a822fd906e43:0xebd7d 610d9faa664)
The work center is located at North Shore Campground in Lake Arrowhead. No reservations necessary but we must know if you're arriving as we are behind a gate.

SUNDAY, JUNE 8
Meet at 09:00 AM at North Shore Work Center (https://www.google.com/maps/place/North+Shore+Campground/@34.267228,-117.164207,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x80c4a822fd906e43:0xebd7d 610d9faa664)

The focus for 2N49 will be clearing debris from the trail. We will require two winches. If you are currently USFS certified to operate a chainsaw please let me know. We will also be brushing the trail, where needed. NAXJA will be providing cheeseburger lunches.

COMMUNICATIONS
CB Radio: The fours. We'll start on 4, if busy we'll bump up to 14 or 24.
2m: 146.585 Simplex

What do I need?
Any vehicle that can do a USFS-rated moderate trail (Stock XJ, okay). 2WD XJ is acceptable with front tow points.
Bring gloves, a hat, and loppers. Please bring light long sleeve shirts for brush work. Closed toe shoe mandatory.


If you are joining us please use the poll in this thread (http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1112125) to help us with planning.

How much highway driving is involved?

Drive from the Discovery Center to 2N04 is about twelve miles. Drive back could be a few less.

2N49 isn't really tow rig friendly as it's a 17 mile trail that starts at Silverwood and ends in San Bernardino.

Thanks for the reminder. I updated the Facebook page and failed to update this page.

We will be camping out of the Adopt A Trail North Shore Workcenter. This is located at the USFS North Shore Campground in Arrowhead, you do not need to make any official reservations but please let us know if you plan to camp with us.

I will be in the area after lunch time on Saturday, camping Saturday night and working on Sunday.

I got gloves, hat, and 3 different sized gardening loppers and 1 set of hedge trimmers, so if anyone needs to borrow some I will bring them all.

Is anyone bringing dogs? I won't be bringing mine, they can be two handfuls to control if there are any other dogs around. Just wanted to know if AAT Workdays are "dog friendly" in case I can bring someone to watch them in the future.

Yes, provided the dogs are not overly aggressive toward people or other dogs we have no problem with dogs at any of our maintenance days or wheeling trips. Of course meet and greets, etc., may have different rules depending on the venue.

So if I'm too aggressive I can't go? You can't go changing the rules on me now.

This weekend, folks!

For those of you coming up for camping Friday night head to North Shore Campground (https://www.google.com/maps/place/North+Shore+Campground/@34.267228,-117.164207,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x80c4a822fd906e43:0xebd7d 610d9faa664) in Lake Arrowhead. When you drive into the campground you'll see a fork to your right heading to the Work Center, this is where we are camping. Those of you who are joining us on Friday please post up here so we know to look out for you.


Also if you have a 2 meter radio we'll be monitoring 146.585. I'll also monitor CB channel 4 if anybody is lost.


Saturday morning we meet at 9:00 at the Big Bear Discovery Center. Those joining us in the evening to camp and volunteer Sunday can meet us at North Shore as well, same story as above.

There *is* cell signal in camp. In fact I'll be doing some server work Friday night from camp.

I plan on getting up the mountain around lunch time on Saturday. Anyone know a good place for lunch near the campground? Anyone want to meet for lunch? After setting up camp, I could be talked into going on a trail.

Yesterday was a truly awesome trail maintenance day. For those who missed out, it was seriously as much fun as Socal fest. Bimmer and I gave our winches a serious beating moving a couple trees off the road. Very VERY large trees. Took two winches, both with snatch blocks doubling to move the second one. It was a blast. Got to meet a couple new friends, and spend time with a couple old friends.

Could not have asked for a better Sunday in the mountains. Sarge even got to chase some ducks, a swimmer, some jet skis, and a boat in big bear lake. He is exhausted.

What's Facebook?

It's something for people that don't interact with their dogs enough and therefore have too much free time.
