FWIIW -- don't let Karl low-ball his PATH involvement too much.  He is a board 
member of PATH and a long time hard worker.

Chainsaw

BTW -- Keep hoping I'll get the OK from the doctors to get back out.

BTW2 -- Rosalind, where do you maintain in PA.  I did trail work up there, 
some 40 years ago.

Yesterday I was out doing work to further the maintenance of the AT.....not on 
the trail itself, but in the corridor so that my club can bring in the 
materials for construction of a new privy by an AT shelter.   A gloriously 
beautiful day....the crew of volunteer workers had fun and accomplished a 
lot....and we were very satisfied with our day's accomplishments.  That's one 
of the wonderful parts of the volunteering business....knowing and feeling the 
pride of getting something positive done.

And here's another account by Karl Kunkel, down in SW Virginia, that I could 
sympathize with, since today I'm feeling some aches and muscle soreness from 
the events of yesterday.  And in the process of reading his account, found 
this new  (to me) site of "Live Journals".....just thought I'd share this with 
those who also maintain, as well as those who don't.  He's one of the hundreds 
who get out there and do their bit.  More ought to.
