On Friday evening, the pack hopped into the Bread Box which was fully packed-n-ready for another fine camp adventure. We headed back to our favorite camp site near the NCT.
|Pancakes, with our very own blueberries. As usual, I didn't get any.|
|Hey! You know I LOVE bacon.|
|Oh yeah, I got a piece!|
|After our scrumptious breakfast, we headed|
to our work site. We found that the wet
summer's been great for growing brush.
Sandy cut them down with some .155 string.
|That's what I like to see with the grass and shoots cut down.|
|Here's a good spot for a break.|
|What are we having?|
|Arly followed Sandy with his boomerang head|
that takes them small trees right out!
|Ya, that's looks much better.|
|Small trees also had to come out so the pole saw was attached.|
|This one was under tension and had to be carefully notched.|
|They'll be gone fast!|
|Day 2: the old blazing is coming down!|
|Ya Arly, paint those new ones nice,|
use lots of paint too.
|How's this look?|
|Here we should mark a corner.|
|I see something scary up there.|
|Oh ya, I've been stung before!|
|This is another corner.|
|Arly thinks he's an artist like J. Waters.|
We paint these on because that's the way the North
Country Trail association wants it marked.
|Sandy's scraping a tree's bark to make a smooth canvas for a blaze.|
|Now some brushing to remove loose material.|
|We're almost done and I'm getting tired.|
|It's been a busy day...I'm ready to go home.|
Arly thinks keeping the 9 miles of trail we adopted cleared and marked is to much work and we should give it away. What do you recommend?
