100 mile trail staking and locating 31 July

#1 Post by larry morris » Mon Jun 28, 2010 7:11 pm

On 17 July I could use some help staking trail on the 100 mile loop. This area is north of CHSR and near what is called the whales head. We will be locating the route so as to be on burro property and take a route to be developed maybe next summer. I have invited Tom Hancock with Parks and Recs Trails Advisory Commition and he would like to go with us. He will also give us a breifing on it. WE need people, atvs, gps' and sense of humor.

I'd be there in heart beat, but that weekend I'll be staking 20 acres in the Whites, sorry.

Send an email to the club list, fst@snowtravelers.org with your request. This will go to all the club members. You have to be a member to send an email to that address, so it might not work from your borro account, let me know and I'll fix it if not.

I may be able to help - I'll put it on my calendar (31st, right?) - I am on call work wise, but I'll see if I can switch (I doubt there is cell service on the "trail".) I'll watch this thread for details.

I do not have an ATV, so I'll need to hitch a ride. I have GPSes and a very dry sense of humor ;).

Thanks!

Havel

John, I saw you drew a staking in the white mountain area. I want to pick your brain about it. I almost applied. May want to in the future. Good luck and find a nice spot. :bow:

So far I'm free for the 31st, of course that might change :<)

Sure Larry, be glad to go over it with you. Lots of brushing to do is the biggie, that and knowing how to use your GPS helps :<)

I have a nice 20 acre area picked out, just bring your chain saw and sweat and we can discuss it while we work <LOL>....

Hey just curious, how do you get 20 acres or any land for that matter in the White Mountains?
Is this land that went up for sale or something else?
I have been looking for 20 to 40 acres for a while.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Dave

David,

I pulled a staking draw from DNR, info at http://dnr.alaska.gov/mlw/ click on "Remote Cabin Staking". It's basically a lottery you apply for and hope you pull an authorization, I just got lucky.

I do know of a guy who has 5 acres for sale up there, you interested ?

John,
I would donate time for you but, I have young ladies coming over and I am showing them how to make real root beer and ginger ale. Using real sassafrass root and ginger. Last batch was made with extract just to show them the basics now it is the real thing.

But available later to help.

Any more details on the trail staking?

I don't want to request someone cover for my on-call unless this is going to happen on July 31 =)

Husband thinks this sounds like "fun" too and might join if he can hitch a ride too...

Thanks!

Heather

I am back. I will be talking to Tom at P&R. The staking is on unless extreme weather halts it. I hope to have a briefing on Friday for those who wish to get a jump on the info. I will post more here by Wednesday.
