Hikers Say Thanks

I received a note from Laurie Potteiger, Information Services Manager for the ATC with a message from hikers at this years "Gathering" saying thanks to the crew for their hard work in protecting the AT. In addition to the signed card above, Laurie included some kind words from a hiker.

“I owe a big, giant, super duper thank you … to the volunteers who keep the trail alive and continue to make it what it is.” -- Anthony Magee, ”Chili Pepper” 2007-2008

So, give yourself a big pat on the back and know your work does matter a lot to hikers on the AT!

Happy Holidays,

Another way to Keep Track of Krock Folks.

If you do the Facebook thing, there is a group for folks who have Volunteered on AT Trail Crews called "I've Volunteered on an Appalachian Trail Crew."

Here's a link.

Just in case you wanted to know....

Passing of a Friend

Sugar Bear working at Humpback Rocks in 2008

A group shot at Humpback Rocks (Sugar Bear at top)

It's with deep regret that we see the passing of fellow Konnarock Crew Volunteer and friend, Larry "Sugar Bear" Regan (1946-2008). Sugar Bear started Volunteering on the AT in 2007 and worked 5 weeks last season on Konnarock. Although his time on crew was short, his calm but fun loving demeanor was infectious.

Always quick to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it, Sugar Bear embodied the best of what Konnarock is about, a cooperative, friendly spirit to get anything done.

We'll miss you Sugar Bear,

For everyone that worked on the Tye River Relocation in 2008 (and anyone else that wants to waste time at work today), the Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club has produced a video of the project.
