2. Would it be possible to haul some of their materials in on Sunday the 15th ? and stack them at a predetermined location for them.

If #2 is an option, I'd be wiling to haul some in if I can get someone to help, just in case of an :oops:

Trip into the Bonnefield yesterday when well, 3 volunteers with Shawn and Dan from Ft. W. Hit the trail about 1030 or so, first ten miles where full of twisty and over hanging brush but the mission was to get out and extend the trail which the leaders did a great job of. Trail also got a lot straighter and burn not as bad (as just south of the butte). So Monday! get material in for bridges and maybe get a bridge built. Remember 930 Tesoro Cushman and Van Horn.

Think +20 temps....


Would the club spring for good reflecting trail markers?

There is a possibility that the borough trails dept. has markers that you could get for the trail that don't cost us anything. It's worth asking.

Good turn out for material hauling to the bridge sites, 13 men and machines. Some of us went on down the trail towards the Wood River, others scouted new bridge sites, others started building the first bridge, others brushed trail and others haul in more loads of material.
This first bridge is a 30 footer and quite a sight to see it coming together and there still will be challenges to get it completely built and it place.
