OK, so we are set for July 26 at 9am (meet at store in Rollinsville if not camping) for "fixing" the kiosk. Here is an updated list of possible helpers:

Red Chili - welder, power, tools, in charge of kiosk "fixes"
Timmbuck2 - grunt worker, tools
Powderpig - maybe
Rover67
Rock Wagon
Tramontana - various tools
Tch2fly - concrete
Beater - maybe
thenimirra - camera
Johnindenver - plywood?


Other than camping and wheeling and indulging in a few adult beverages :beer:, there are 3 main goals of the trip:

1. "Fix" the kiosk
- cut off the top sun (which looks AMAZING and extremely cool...awesome job John!)
- add the cross pieces. Subzali had these, correct? Where are they now?
- add the plywood

Needed:
-grinder, welder, power (Red Chili - grinder/cutter/flapsander, welder, power for grinder.)
-bfh (various)
-I think the FS is providing the plywood? Will she have it on the 26th? Will it be cut to fit or will we need to cut it on site? how does the plywood attach? screws?
-Same with the cross pieces.

2. Fix post and cable

We have not been able to get a good feel of what is needed for this At the least we will need winches to pull them back up, shovels, cement?, water?, etc etc etc?.

3. GPS Jenny Creek and side trails

This is a side project that the Rising Sun is working on, or will be once the snow melts. Any and all trucks with GPS are welcome to map the trails while the other projects are going on or after everything is fixed. I don't have a GPS yet, but hopefully as that project gets up and running we will have plenty for everyone.


Then we camp and drink and eat and be merry.



Please post a confirmation or retraction here if you are definitely heading up there the 26th and what tools you plan to bring and if you are camping.
THANKS!!!!!

Tools as mentioned above. Tramontana is also bringing some power tools. My truck can run 1 tool at a time I think, depending on draw.

For the posts, we would need bags of concrete, shovels, a pike (I can bring mine). Water is available on site so we need a bucket, large-ish. If someone can take the point on concrete etc. that would be great, my focus is the kiosk.

I have the cross pieces (I need to weld them closed), and Tramontana is bringing them up. He is also bringing his wife Cookie to fish a bit after work, and although nothing has been discussed, you may get to know how she got that name.

Nope.

BTW, the Sabbath is as important as the job, d00d... just sayin' (for selfish reasons, love to have you there).

Looks like you can add me to the list of workers.

I got the concrete last time around. I'd be happy to do it again let me know how many bags I should bring.

No camping for me, I'll meet whomever in Rollinsville.

No clue how much concrete to bring...I only saw one or 2 posts that needed to be reset, but half of them were still covered in snow...

Guys - I have to back out of this work day. My parents came up this week from Arizona, and are staying until Sunday. I don't think I can justify disappearing all day Saturday after working all week, nor do I think I can convince them that doing trail work in our mountains is a good use of their time.

I humbly apologize, and hope that I can do my part at some other time.

We were, but it's looking like that gains us nothing. So Saturday night is Camp Yankee Doodle.

July 26 at 9am (meet at store in Rollinsville).

Bring some sort of shelter (I am sleeping in my truck on an air mattress this time), a warm sleeping bag, a winter coat, some rain gear just in case, a couple lunches, a dinner and breakfast (though I bet there will be food to share), your personals, and your winning attitude! Cool that you are coming!

Ok, looks like we (Allison, The Dog, and Myself) will be heading up there sometime tomorrow evening. We'll see you guys up there saturday morning.

A couple of friends of mine will more than likely meet us up there saturday to play around and camp that night.

alright... we are headed up in a few hours, we'll find some spot to camp, may not be near the road depending on who else is up there. meet the group at the kiosk, or along the road somewhere on the way up... don't wait for us if we are not at rollinsville at 9. my CB will be on channel 4... not like you'll be able to talk to me unless you can throw a rock at me, but anyways. we'll probably be able to help out most of the morning.

Hey, if you can, try to reserve some camping space to the east of Yankee Doodle, the route that ends at the Boulder Wagon Road "Road Closed" gate continues east and down a bit to some camping sites, then ends. Good place to camp. Sometimes folks don't realize it's there.

I have only been up once to help with the kiosk so I'm not sure how many posts might need work or if we need concrete for the kiosk work.

Anybody care to venture a WAG on how much concrete I should bring?

2 bags ... 5 ... 10 ...????

No response so I went and got 5 bags
