Any vehicle that can do a USFS-rated moderate trail (Stock XJ, okay). Since this is winter you should have four wheel drive.
Bring gloves, a hat, and loppers. Please bring light long sleeve shirts for brush work. Closed toe shoe mandatory.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so I can properly plan.

Thank you for your time and I hope to see you on the 17th.

Since I work every other weekend, I have a 50/50 chance of being able to make it. And I lose again...I'm working that day. :(

Maybe we can schedule you to deliver us supplies and PPE. Want to wheel the Lowes truck?

I hope it went well! I am, unfortunately, very glad I didn't attempt to go... I felt like reheated death much of the weekend. Stayed home sick today, even.

Thank you Sean for coming out to help with the 2N49 maintenance run and 2015 maintenance plan survey. We logged 17.2 miles of trail, removed one discarded tire from the trailhead, picked up various pieces of garbage, and winched two fallen trees clear of the trail.

On Monday Sebastian and I picked up the forest service Adopt-A-Trail trailer and picked up a full load of debris from the Arrastre Shooting Area off 2N02. Irresponsible target shooters are a real problem in this area and, if not kept in check, will ultimately lead to the closure of this and other legal shooting areas.

Photos will be posted up later, I have not had a chance to host them just yet.

Keep an eye on this forum for the next maintenance days.

I vote for the weekend of 2/21 or 2/28, to avoid interference with KOH and VDay weekends.

Maybe my lungs will function again by then, too...

We're looking into 2/7 and 2/8 for some more work and to complete the 2N04 maintenance plan survey. I, personally, am only available on that weekend in February.
