Big South Cleanout

Hey all,

Who is up for cleaning up the wood this spring before the melt starts? Of highest interest might be the log in primetime but there is also a few pieces above and within the rush that would make the lower section more enjoyable.

I propose the weekend of April 1-2 or April 9-10. Needed are some chainsaws, a couple cum alongs and a few good men or women. To aid in the effort I can procure some beer from new belguim (could make the work exciting) and possibly lodging near the trailhead.

If you enjoy the run, come prove it by putting in some work to keep it kick ass and by making it more safe.

I'd like to help, the 9-10 would be good for me too. How much snow will be there at that time? Is access possible? I hate that f-ing log in primetime and would love to cut it into little bitty pieces.

Would we be hiking up form the bottom? is there a better route in? I'd be more tempted to go a week or three later after the resorts have closed. Seems liek the water would still be low enough.

Ed hanson: is that chainsaw getting any use? Care to donate it to some folks that might clean something I'd actually want to run?

I do have a nice saw that I might be persuaded to loan if I don't make it. Forrest has one that I bet could go for the cause as well.

Cool, lets plan on April 9-10 leaving the fort either saturday morning or friday night as schedules allow. Everyone who can bring a saw plan on it. Looks like we have at least a couple.

I'll work on the beer, place to crash, and the rigging and update things as we get closer.

The only access is from the trailhed as long draw road is closed and prime time is a few miles in. There will most likely be snow so bring snow shoes if you got'em.
