3rd Saturday Hiking with Tools
June 15, 2019 @ 12:00 am
This month we will make a second try to hike out to Vandeventer Shelter to replace the graffiti board which has gone missing. We tried in April, but the weather did not cooperate. Hopefully this time will work out.
The board is a little awkward to carry, so it would be nice to have a couple of folks to help out with that. Along the way, we may lop back a few rhododendron and cut some weeds as June is high weed time. If we have enough people we may even repaint the blazes to the water source at the shelter. It is 4.7 miles out to the shelter (and of course 4.7 miles back!) so this will be a longish day.
All materials and tools will be provided, volunteers only need to bring sufficient food and water for the day and wear appropriate clothing for the weather including sturdy walking shoes and long pants. Work gloves are also desirable.
We will meet in front of the Parkway Discount Wine and Liquor Store on South Roan Street in Johnson City at 8:30 am to carpool to Wilbur Dam Road. Other meeting places can be arranged with prior notice.
Please let me know if you are planning to participate and where you would like to meet by Wednesday, June 12.
