Third Saturday Hiking w/Tools
May 18, 2019 @ 12:00 am
They say that the third time’s a charm. We have had two aborted attempts at painting Curly Maple Gap shelter, once due to a hurricane and once due to the government shutdown. So this month it is time for the third try. Curly Maple Gap shelter was rebuilt in 2010 and as such is one of our newer shelters. However, over the years, it has collected an abundance of graffiti which is quite unsightly. So the goal for this month’s trip will be to paint the interior of the shelter and cover up all the graffiti.
For those folks who may not wish to climb around inside a shelter and get paint on themselves, there will also be an opportunity to do actual trail work. There are a few places between Indian Grave Gap and the shelter that need some rehabbing and we hope to address that also.
All materials and tools will be provided. Volunteers need to bring food and water sufficient for the day and wear weather appropriate clothing (if you are painting, you might consider paint friendly clothing). Work gloves are also recommended as well as long pants and sturdy walking shoes.
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 the trailhead. Other meeting places can be arranged with prior notice. Please let me know by Wednesday May 15 if you plan to participate and where you want to meet.
