Hoghead is what I'm purported to be. I don't know whether that's up or down the scale from horse! None-the-less, can you imagine being faced with a lengthy stretch of piling to pound, and that's the tool you have to work with? Patient folks back then!

When I left around 3, I counted 24 names signed into the volunteer log today.  It was a great turnout!

So many trees cut today, logs stacked and brush burned!  It's simply amazing how the Mountain Extension ROW opens up to give us a picture of the future.  Great work today by everybody involved.

It was a great day. We cleaned some up from Tuesdays effort, and pushed further north. I was very glad to see all the help today.

I hear you, John -- but you're not a horse.

"Pull ahead. Stop. WHAM! Back up. Stop. Repeat." I've worked yard jobs like that, Wayne!

Work done on Saturday Jan 20:

* Mountain ROW trees: Mike and I went up early (8:00) to start, Mike got one fire going and left me to tend it, taking stacked branches from nearby.  Mike got another fire going.  The remaining 19 people showed up around 10, and started getting two more fires going, while some people cut others stacked stuff on the fire.  Eric S. cut deadwood around the pinch point so that we can walk without being an acrobat.  The pinch point area is waiting for our DEP permit to be completed.  I left at noon so can't comment on afternoon efforts.
* Boxcar 67: I noticed that Zack had one of the north end grab irons on.

Some pictures from noon today:

Taken from where the ROW starts a westward curve.  The slide is just beyond the fire.


From the downhill side of the slide, looking back up the hill.  The slide is well beyond the first fire.


Lastly at the so-called pinch point, dead wood has been cleared out.
