Agreed. This will be a very scenic portion of the ride. Thanks for the photos.

Astounding amount of organized Clearing and Grubbing!
Better slow down or you'll run out of trees!  ;D
Very well done.

If you think you have run out of trees, call Fred! He can always find a few more trees to cut!

By Spring, we should have a good start on a log yard at the future saw mill site.

Starting to look good there guys and lots of future lumber for the sawmill (wishful thinking).  Glad to see so many Stihl chainsaws on site.  Have used many different types over the years and they are the best IMHO.  I'm currently on my 3rd Farm Boss here at home.

I sat on that stump also. Just took a walk down to see how they were doing. Just a couple of hundred feet left when they get the permit. If it's good next Sat. the crew will work North of the brook.

Actually the Official Museum Chainsaw (tm) is Husqvarna.

Maybe I'm lazy or just can't follow all of the tree clearing progress easily, but would it be possible to show on the Mountain Extension map the extent of the tree clearing so far?

Thanks in advance,
Dave Crow

Here's the map (also found in the Nov/Dec 2017 Newsletter.)



Track ends at Location 1; the tree that was blocking the ROW just south of Location 1 was removed on 1/20/18, then skidded out using #9.

Trees have been (or are being) cleared from Locations 1 to 4 and Location 8. We are waiting to remove trees at Location 6 (Section 3) due to permitting. Trees have also been cleared at Locations 13-17.

Goal for spring/summer: Repair ROW up to Location 9.
Goal for Fall Work Weekend: Lay track up to Location 9 (1300 feet from Location 1).

Mike or Jason can offer corrections/comments.
