Thank you on behalf of all the volunteers for the kind words.  It was a pleasure running into you out there.  Congrats on finishing up the trail.

PCT-L folks:
To follow up on the below announcement:  there is sufficient interest for both days, so we will be out there.  That said, the more the merrier.  There are plenty of loppers, conora saws and brush whips awaiting eager volunteers.  And if you like power tools,  the brush saw is open to all who can safely operate it.

Contact me off list if you wish to sign up.  Indicate which day(s) you're interested in.  Note that there will be more opportunities from the 18th on until it snows as well.

The trail thanks you.

Had the pleasure of running into Mr. Civilian and friends out working
on the trail a few days back.  Their fruits of their efforts were
noticeable and much appreciated.  Thanks!
