  • Adopt-A-Trail: 3N59A

    As the poll has indicated, most people would like to go back to our trail on 10/11/08 (Saturday) for our next trail repair day. Please head over to the http://socalfjcruiserforums.com/forums/index.php?board=29.0"]AAT forum[/URL] for more detailed discussion on when, what, and hows. We'll be divided up into groups to do focused repairs. There's discussion of camping on Friday and possibly Saturday. Weather should be great. We'll do some work and also hit the trails. Please contact mattmainster if you can't access the forum. If you are not familiar with the AAT program, please take a look at http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/socal-region/46966-socal-fj-cruisers-adopt-trail.html

    Here's a link to a SBNF http://www.bluestarshome.com/images/SBtrails.jpg"]map [/URL]with some trails highlighted.

    Horse Springs Camp Ground will be our rally point once we make it into the mountain. The map of the campground is: Google Maps

What do we need a chain saw for? The forest service has them for us to use don't they? Did you ever get a response on the Orange Construction Fence as a temporary keep out barrier?

To use their chainsaw, you need to have chainsaw safety certification. I believe it's a 1 day course :eek:. Greg is on vacation and won't be back for 2 more weeks. When I go up on Friday, hopefully I can get to check out what materials are available for use. The SBNF volunteer that I've met at the show told me there's a work center/stock yard near the cabin that some of us will be staying at. I would much rather use the resource available at hand then to buy something out of our own pocket. It is ok to use the orange barriers. I'm hoping we can get the signage in time for the work day.

I asked about chainsaw because it would make moving large logs around easier-unless you just really like chopping things up with an axe. ;D

Tony,
I can't make this one, but I do want to help. I will keep an eye out for the next work day. Also, I have the last 2 weeks of October off from work if anything needs to be done during the week.

If there is anyone going up Saturday morning from the OC I can follow, I'm in. What do I need to bring?

Are we talking about the same trail? I did not see a single tree along 3N59A the last few times I was there. lol Unless you're counting the Joshua Trees :)

I will NOT be able to make this one. Just too much going on this weekend with Lucas' soccer game at 10:00 and relatives from the UK arriving tomorrow at 3:00. :(
