Its full on maintenance season on the PCT

Postby North 350 Blades » Wed Jul 24, 2013 2:36 pm

Hi all

Well, its full on maintenance season on the PCT, at least in Washington and Oregon and Nor Cal. Just about every crew up and down the trail in these areas are looking for volunteers for their upcoming trips.

Up here in Washington, the North 350 Blades has been working the blow down south of Snoqualmie Pass pretty hard, with multiple log out days clearing dozens of trees. There's only a couple left on a 35+ mile stretch, and we'll get those soon. Our brush saws have also been busy knocking back the huckleberries and salmon berry bushes clearing the trail for the approaching herd of thru's. We'll get our diggin' tools dirty shortly with some tread work as well to smooth the way.

I just received an e-mail where the Mt. Hood chapter is looking for folks for a lot out in the Goat Rocks on Aug 10-12. They also have a long list of projects between August 1 and going on well into September.

We have a crew out today clearing brush and will be out on Saturday doing it all - brushing, logging out and tread work. We'll have a couple more crews in early August before hitting the trail several weekends in a row - Aug 10-11, another crew from the 11th to the 17th, a crew the 17th-18th of August, another on the 23rd to the 25th of August. We might head out the holiday weekend, but we'll for certain be out again on the 7th of September to the 13th and another crew from the 13th to the 15th. AND we're already planning next year......
