Were you planning on coming Friday night?

If you don't make it because of the weather, what's a good halfway point for the stuff Doug has bought from you?

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

So my frat had to switch up a couple rush events on Friday and Saturday, making it a possibility of me having to leave early, if I need to is it good if I chime out a little early given the event isn't disrupted by weather?

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

I have been talking with Terry Savery of the forest service about the weather issue and she is waiting to see a couple of the updated weather forecasts tonight and tomorrow morning before making a decision about the weather. And she does have a replacement to haul the Bobcat, and will also be confirming tomorrow with them pending her decision about the weather.

As far as leaving early that is not a problem.

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

Actually Terry Savery got back to me a little bit later via e-mail, here is the section of the e-mail concerning Friday:

Quote:
I’ve checked the weather and as of now the weather on Friday, January 25th is supposed to be 33oF with 89% chance of precipitation with it being a mix of sleet & snow in the afternoon with little to no accumulation. For Saturday, January 26th it is supposed to be dry, sunny, breezy & chilly with plenty of sunshine with a hi of 47oF. I would like to go ahead and still plan on getting the Bobcat here on Friday and using Darin’s Toyota Cruiser and one of our FS trucks to haul the guardrail and posts from the Arrowhead Campground spray field on Friday and haul it onto the work site that is on Rocky Mt. Loop. We’re taking in 6 long (25 ft) guard rails and 7 posts into the RML site. The 3 guardrail sites on RML are just before the 2nd culvert when you start at Dutch John Trailhead and take the southwest section of RML and you go past the intersection with Dickey Bell Trails. We’ll plan on meeting at the Dutch John Trailhead between 12 and 1 pm.
So the workday is still on go, looking forward to seeing everyone out on the trails. At least it won't be sleeting Saturday, we did that 2 years back on a December workday. That was when Chris got the S-300 stuck in a tail ditch and it took the John Deere tractor and my truck daisy chained together to pull it out. You can see the Bobcat all the way in the back:



Sleet and Ice:



Turned the Trails into this mess:





Rain, Sleet, or Snow, to Uwharrie we will go!

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

It's going to be messy Saturday. Between all the rain from last week and whatever we get on Friday.

Unless the cold snap this week hardens the ground up a bit...

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

OK, I think I might plan on bringing the heep. Sounds like it might be messy. My jeep likes messy URE trails. Shold be fun loading her up in the mess down here Friday after work.

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

I should be there by 830. I thought about bringing the jeep, but it has some small issues that I need to take care of before they turn into big issues.

Just a heads up. I'll be bowing out of this one. The weather here is bad and it's going to freeze tonight. I don't want to be in a ditch in a 7500 lb 2wd truck in the morning or tomorrow night. If I was closer, it would be different.

Nick - I'll get with doug and see if we can work out a different parts train.

Sorry fellas. I'm a little more wiser in my old age than when I was young and stupid.

No worries. Roads are pretty slick here tonight as well.

How far from Charlotte are you? Maybe we can still meet at a halfway point or something for Dougies stuff? Not sure if it would be any easier for Doug if Nick has it in Raleigh versus you and I meeting up. He was originally planning on coming to get them from me next weekend, but I know it won't be an issue to reschedule that part of it...

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

I drove out to Kannapolis and met up with the Cagle's at RS Braswell Bobcat at 10:30 and then headed out to Uwharrie. We unloaded at the double parking lot then headed to the spray field to get guard rail (25 footers) and posts. Loaded those up and headed back to the double parking lot and unloaded. Also found out our workload has been beefed up also, so anyone worrying about there not being enough work do not fear. We now have a total of 16 pieces of railing to put in. Here are some pictures from the day:

Re: January 2013 Off-Season Volunteer Workday

Where does the FS get the guardrail from? I might have a source for some if its needed.
