Unfortunately I'll be in NYC for my godson's christening, but thought I would share this recent mail from the ranger station in Georgetown....

Subject: Volunteer Trail Work Day Scheduled for
Saturday, February 7,
We plan to have a volunteer trail work day on
February 7, 2004. The
main project we plan to work on is the
continuation of the 11E22
Trail reroute. The contract bridge work is not
started yet, but we
would like to complete the trail work, so there
is no delay in
opening the new trail that will reconnect Mace
Mill to Darling Ridge
for OHVs. Depending on the volunteer turn out,
we may have some
additional trail projects to work on.
For the trail construction project, please bring
boots with good
traction and ankle support, a lunch and work
gloves. If you have
your own hardhat and eye protection, please
bring. If you do not
have those items, we do have loaners. We have a
limited number of
tools for the volunteers to borrow, but if you
have your favorite
pick, mattock, shovel, etc, you are welcome to
We will be meeting at the Mace Mill Staging Area
at 8:30 AM. We will
have a short safety briefing. Before proceeding
to the work site
(s). If it is raining or snowing or the soil
conditions are too wet,
we will be postponing the workday to March 6,
2004. We plan to be
out working until about 4:00 PM, but if you need
to leave earlier,
please feel free to stay as long as you like.
We would appreciate an RSVP by February 4, 2004
if you plan to join
us on February 7. We would like to be sure to
bring enough tools and
water. Please send me a reply email. You can
also give me a call at
(530) 333-5550. Please share this opportunity
with your friends. We
hope we can get a good turn out and have success
in reconnecting the
Mace Mill Loop Trail with the Darling Ridge
Trails. Hope to see you

Where's Mace Mill, say relative to Meadowbrook? I'm an old time GDL and I don't recall the place.
Never mind . . . I found it.
I've already been to hell . . . Anything more is a minor inconvenience!!
