I can meet anybody who needs help getting to the trailhead at the visitor center at 8:30. We'll have easy radio contact with you nakman, and I know exactly where you plan on camping

So I was looking at the threads from past cleanup runs, and I saw these pictures of a small cabin, or shack, that's up there.






I'm curious what the deal is with this cabin. It looks like people have been camping out there from time to time. (these pictures were from 2010) Can someone do that? Is the Forest service cool with people camping out for a night in the cabin? I think it would be pretty cool to do that one weekend.

I think (but don't quote me) the Forest Service discourages folks from camping in structures like this that aren't maintained. It's simply a collapse hazard (honestly I would rather sleep outside in a tent than under that roof). But I doubt it is against any kind of law. The Forest Service is planning on closing off motorized access to that cabin, so in a couple years it will only be hiking access and will probably be a lot less used.

We (my wife and I) are not members (yet), but are curious if we could join the cleanup?

We have a 2006 4Runner (grey) SR5, with BudBuilt skids, White-Knuckle sliders, BFG ATs, and a Perkins bumper on the way.

Is there anything useful we could be bring? Thanks.

Always! Not to mention when you do join you'll have your one event under your belt already.

Absolutely! We would love to have you!

As far as what to bring, work gloves, trash bags, sturdy shoes, and a good attitude!

We won't have carsonite to install this go-round, but we'll be putting up a couple posters and just generally trying to make sure everything is in tip top shape!

You know what's more fun than playing in the Argentine Pass area? Sitting bored out of my mind in Pittsburgh. OK, maybe not so much.

Boo! to work!
