Bebe,

I was planning on going up that weekend anyway. So count me in. I'll probably have one of my sons with me as well.

I'll probably make this a through trip, so if anyone wants to pop out the Tahoe side on Sunday you're welcome to tag along. I'll probably camp at Spider or Buck on Sat. Just depends on what time we wrap up the projects. So if you could put us at Soup Bowl or Walker that would be great.

Ron

It's looking like I'll be able to help out. Nicole might make it depending on work.

I will figure out a way to get a wheel barrow there, but I do not have a trailer hitch.

Ok Bebe, I have no commitment from the rest of my group (I'm done holding hands) but count me in for one Jeep pulling a trailer. I'll toss a wheelbarrow, 2 digging bars, a pick and shovel into the trailer for the ride.

Arriving Friday night and heading back out on Sunday. Message me or post up if there are/is anything else you might need.

Robert

Trailers are needed!! I know that the idea of putting rock in a nice trailer is not the best feeling, but we do need to move rock. Boards can be placed in the bottom of the bed to protect it from dents.

What do we need to do to have folks bring their own?? Is there any thing that will help??

I think we will be covered for wheelbarrows as the rock source is identified and close to the trail. We do need plastic buckets or even those plastic half barrels would do fine.

HEY!! What if rock is loaded in to a half barrel and transported IN the trailer??

Would that help anyone on the fence about bringing a trailer??

Bebe, what is our trailer count?? I hit the FOTR list for ideas. I think we may be on to something that will entice folks to use a trailer they might be more worried about filling with rock.

Seems like we will have enough buckets, trailers are next...............

i can put rock filled buckets in the bed of my k5. with out the rear seat it's pry about the same size as most trailers. I also have a wheel barrow, an extra shovel or two, and some buckets.

Of course that does mean I need to get it put back together
