Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

ELi will the guardrail need to be brought in on Saturday or will you guys be doing that on Friday?

From the e-mail Terry Savery sent me today, her goal is for us to drag guard rail Friday and do the install Saturday. IF this works out to be the case we should have a short and sweet workday Saturday, because a big portion of the work is dragging the guard rail. It depends on who shows up Friday to help out, and how much we can get done (and who shows up Saturday for that fact also).

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

I am a no-go for Friday. Will be in class until at least 5pm. Saturday is a definite. Hopefully I can wrangle a passenger or two.

I have to drive 4 hours one way. Just how short and sweet are you talking about?

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

I won't be there Friday either because of work. Saturday is a definite yes.

Hoping to have a couple people from Charlotte with me as well.

Well if by some miracle we get all the guard rail dragged Friday, and take care of any side projects that come up, we will have at least an hour head start. Then if we actually do have 20+ people show up and don't have any delays we might get done closer to 2-2:30 versus 3:30 or later. The chance of this happening are very slim, but it would make for a very smooth workday and save us an hour or so of time.

I don't take anything for granted, my comments were purely a positive outlook on what "could happen" in a perfect scenario.

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

From the Forest Service: Things to bring are: your lunch, water, work boots, work gloves, layers of clothing so you’re ready for wet, dry, cold or hot weather, and an assortment of tools if you have the that are good are: shovels, rock bars, chains, D-rings, sledge hammers, ratchets with sockets that are 1 -inch in size, regular hammers.

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

Its great to bring tools out to the workdays, but if you don't have tools to bring don't worry. As long as you bring yourself dressed for the weather ready to work that is what counts.

I have seen volunteers in the past go way out of their way to bring a bunch of tools and not one get touched because there we all ready enough tools. So yes bring tools if you can, but don't let it turn into a big deal for you.

If the guardrail does not get brought in on Friday and you need me to bring the heep to help get it in on Saturday let me know via text Friday afternoon.

Right now I am keeping an eye on the weather. They are currently calling for a 70% chance of rain Friday, so its a waiting game to see what happens.

It has called for a 50% chance of rain before on a Friday before a workday, and it didn't rain until the after I had parked the Bobcat and was at the Outpost getting ready to leave. So lets pray and hope it doesn't rain Friday.

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

Keeping an eye on the weather now. Starting to look like we may be in for a bit of an ice storm come Friday.

Of course it is still 3 days out, so a lot can still change between now and then, but it could make getting to Uwharrie a bit tricky come Saturday morning.

If it rains will they change the work date? If so how will that effect the rental? Need me to do some driving and drilling again if I make it?

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

I was wondering the same thing. What is the "inclement weather policy" for the FS?

Current weather reports are saying it's going to be more of an ice event instead of snow, and it gets icy as the day progresses on Friday. Regardless of whatever falls, it's going to freeze Friday night, which if it's a repeat of what last week was like....that will make the roads interesting come Saturday morning.

Regardless of what happens, it's going to be cold Saturday. If the workday goes on as planned, be sure to dress warm!

If the weather gets bad on Friday, I'm out. The truck is 2wd and I'm not bringing the jeep. I don't want to be in an ice storm 3 hours from my house.
