:shock: WOW! 8)

That sums up the day and effort from a Great bunch of AAT volunteers!

You gus and gals ROCK! Thinking back, we got a lot of stuff done and defintely created a much safer trail for the public. You all deserve a pat on the back.

We had 13 volunteers and two rangers.

Lets see, we did the following:
Installed our trail sign and Dedicated OUR trail w/ club sticker.
Moved Many large rocks and boulders off the trail.
Blocked a couple of illegal trail sections and cleaned up someones damage off the trail.
Cleaned up various trash and debris along the way as well as a mess of construction debris and various trash.
Cleaned out several culverts.
Filled in a sink hole w/ boulder and made that section of trail much safer and the repair was invisible when finished.
Visited North Shore camp w/ Greg and saw some cool places that the trail volunteers have created. :shock:
Sure I'm missing something.....
Had a great dinner w/ some of the coolest Jeepers!!

I don't know if sign vandalism is an issue down there JJ, but up here it is and the Forest Service and Park Rangers have found that putting American Flags on all the trail markers and signs cuts sign vandalism down by some crazy number, several hundred percent or something. So every new sign that goes up out here generally gets a US Flag on top. Nice work by the way.

Good work guys, I really like that adopt a trail (lost sign)
I wish we had public trails around here. It would be fun to help on trail cleanups and repair.

Do you have Any parks of any kind? Hiking areas, campgrounds, etc? Even if there are no trails, hook up w/ local parks & rec, USFS, BLM, etc. and ask if there is any way you or your club/group can help. Jeepers getting out and helping anywhere they can is Great for our hobby.
