2008 T-Shirt (this is what you get for sweating).

It's a bit more subdued than last years design but the white blaze really stands out! I'd like to thank Noland Hisey for the great design and Aerie Designs of North Carolina for printing them up.

See ya in a week!

Trail Days, Damascus, Virginia Hiker Parade

Are you heading to Damascus for Trail Days this year? How about helping out with carrying the Konnarock Trail Crew Banner in the Hiker Parade? I'd love to get some crew alumni to wave the flag and represent the crew; we are an integral part of the AT!!

Anyway, if you are interested in helping out, please contact/email ( me before Trail Days. We'll meet up at 1pm at the ATC tent on Saturday, May 17th and head over to the parade start.

We got the skillz (aka Boo-ya)...

This is a strange post I must admit. The crew just got back from doing their SORO (Southern Regional Office) project checks (Tennessee south). We've been busy doing training; getting prepped for the season etc and we'll soon have more pictures to post…..

But, for now it's time to gloat, hold our heads up high and say a big nanny-boo boo to Mr. Boudman…He said it couldn't be done, he said we'd hit the privy or the shelter (or both) and he even laid a big, fat $1 bet on it. Well Bill, check the pictures, that's all I can say…

(For those that have no idea what we're talking about (probably 99.9% of you), we're referring to a bet from a club member that when we took down the old, severely leaning-towards-the-shelter Black Locust (that's a tree), it would hit either the shelter or privy. As you can tell from the pictures below, we did neither).

I want my dollar!!


Red arrow: where the tree is leaning White arrow: a good 4-5' of side lean towards the shelter
Pretty small gap for a really odd shaped tree (I hope I don't hit the privy or I'm out a dollar!)

Tree size-up

Hmmmm, looks like I made myself some sweet cash (I can buy 1/3 gallon of gas!)

Here's my dollar, where's yours?

Yeah! Vroom! Yeah!

Painting the exterior of the Kitchen

The woodshed on the move

Well, another Basecamp Clean-up has come and gone ending in great success! Over 20 Volunteers spent a week cleaning up camp for the coming season and doing some projects to further spruce up the place including repairing electrical in the pods, moving the woodshed and painting the kitchen (inside and out).

A big THANK-YOU goes out to everyone involved in addition to Trail Crew Leader, Christine Hoyer for leading the charge!

Thanks all,
