This month's work trip we plan to move large rock/boulders off the treadway. We will carry needed tools to 1.3 miles where our first efforts will take place. When we have completed this task, we will retreat back to the parking lot while attempting to clear or at least move many rocks/boulders to the side of the treadway. All participants will be asked to carry two tools, except anyone carrying the large rock bar. Tools are provided, unless you prefer to bring your own pick, shovel, sledgehammer or rock bar.

Meet at 8:25 at Sugarlands Visitor Center (restroom side) where co-leader John Lee will organize a carpool to drive to Newfound Gap. Or drive directly to NFG arriving at 9am for a tailgate safety meeting. Bring plenty to drink, snacks and/or lunch, sturdy footwear, gloves, and rainwear as October's weather is unpredictable at high elevations. Hope to be back at the parking lot by 2pm.

Please call leaders Mark and Janet Snyder at 865 448-1183 or co-leader John Lee at 815 549-5096, thus we will know what tools to bring. *UT is not playing this weekend.

Leader: Mark Snyder
Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
