Bailey - let's get rid of that log

Ok - we're slakcers and we know it. That log has been in there since the blizzard two years ago. It would really be nice to not get out of my boat this year. I don't have a chainsaw, but I have an old dynamic line and plenty of gear for z-drags. I know someone out there has got a chainsaw.

The Roberts Tunnel is still not giving it up, and the snow ain't that great....who's up for a hike in to Crossons and doing a little maintenance?

I've got a chainsaw that was aquired from a fellow "buzzard" for just such an occasion, recently fixxed-up & tuned up. (Thanks Dave!)

I'm headed to Utah tomorrow and won't be back for a week or so, but after that..... The next available days for me are my days off, (MON-TUE) would be 18-19 APR and 25-26 APR. If no one else gets to it first, I'll head out there with you. I don't know where to hike in from at Crossons(?) , so let me know.

Ed

Hold on there boys, doesnt that log make you get out and run one of the most fun seal slides around, and probably one of the most fun moves on the run. I say leave it, it forces you into a move that is for sure worth running, and with the log gone theres no more need. Dont bother with the long hike and hours of wet cutting with the saw.

Yank it... That thing is going to cause a problem one day.

You gotta be kidding about that seal launch.

I would offer to join in the festivities, but a torn muscle in my abdomen is going to have me tied up for a bit.

I have plenty of ropes and hardwear to put to a good cause like this. Considering Bailey is very high on my list of runs to checkout this year. I am available the 2nd, and 3rd weekend of April.

If I don't have to work or go to a gear swap I'd be willing to lend some muscle to the project.

Just make sure that when you are on Bailey cutting out that log you don't do something stupid like drop your keys in the river--or leave them in the car.

That would suck.

I know you left your keys in my car - but when did you lose your keys in the river? Or is this a recent event you neglected to confess?

I was thinking about this weekend four years ago, do you remember - Boogie boarding at Jaws, Little River in the Smokies? How about my sweet line at The Elbow? Kamping with a "K", emphasis on the maple. Good times. But Maryville, TN...what the heck kind of town packs out a Shoney's on Easter Sunday?! Makes me wanna call the TVA hotline just hear "Noh-li-chuk-ee ayt Eymbreeveel ayt fahv ay aym..." I'm still wondering why you had a Perception sticker on your Glide...

Caspian,

I'd be willing to help you next Sunday (4/3). I have a saw that will do that job. Send me a PM with your phone number if you are open that day.
