Alright! So I missed a final report on Week 1….Anyway, here's some stats from the week:

Volunteer Hours: 952
Log Steps: 40
Log Cribbing: 60 ft.
Tread Definition: 510 ft.

So, on to Week 2!

Christine and the rest of Crew 1 arrived back in camp today after a successful week with the Old Dominion Appalachian Trail Club working on the Humpback Mountain Rehabilitation. Aside from doing some great work including shaping stone and building rock steps, the crew was treated to a live performance of the "Old Crusty Mistrals," the ODATC band. Christine reports the OCM's played a variety of favorites including "On the Trail Again," "Poison Ivy," and "Icky, Yucky, Sushi."

Ted and crew are taking a couple of restful days at the "R Ranch," a set of cabins in the mountains near their worksite in Georgia. Plans are to rest up and then hit a home game with the Braves in Atlanta. And we should mention that the crew was filmed for a feature in an Atlanta newscast to be featured in a few weeks (we'll let you know when the video is posted).

Till next week…
