Howdy folks,

Well unfortunately once again I will not be able to make this meeting. Can anybody from the north side possibly make this? It should be easy, just show up, sit there, listen, and when the Jenny Creek topic comes up make sure Cat is still on board with what we have already discussed and cover the q's below..

Specific things to cover:

Rising Sun will get up there prior to the July 16th weekend to scope things out, will communicate condition to Cat via email. Still OK?
Meet a ranger up there July 16th in the morning and get started on any post and cable work that may need to happen. Still OK?
Second Group runs Jenny creek and cleans up trash along the way while 1st group does post and cable.
Marco sent Email to Cat with all the forms that Clear Creek requires.. does BRD require the same thing? If so, please forward forms to Marco.
If BRD does not require forms, do we continue to report hours by sending them on to Cat?


I just need somebody to make sure that the stuff above is covered...

Woooo hooooo! Finally got WR finished to do a trail shake down today. Drew hopped in after breakfast and we headed up to Jenny Creek. The drifts are bigger up near the western end than I have ever seen! We definately have some trail work on the road as there is a monster washout forming and the off camber next to the creek is almost impassable! WR performed way beyond my expectations and in fact it has turnered into a ferocious beast! Drew shot a few vids so hopefully they turn out! I hope to get up there again and break some more trail before SD. We made it past the cabin and nearly to the point when the lower side road that has several camp spots rejoins the trail at the west end. Drifts at that point are still 10-15 foot deep! We did check out Rollings pass road west of the JC turn off and that first narrow chute that has a bypass with the illegal short cuts to JC is completely full of snow, well over 15- 18 foot deep! The road ends at the big chute a few miles further. I think we could have edged that one but there was a pick up in the way and it wasn't worth the risk of sidehilling the drift besides the truck.
