Re: [at-l] Boy Scout Shelter in Central VA
"...Well, it's just an idea, you volunteering, I mean. Somebody needs to do
something about the Boy Scout Shelter. Don't you agree? I mean, being that you
have already surveyed the situation, who better than you to handle the job?"
This is wonderful advice. I got involved seriously with the MATC about 20 years
ago after a four day, south bound trip between the Jo Mary Campground road and
Gulf Hagas with my two sons, ages 10 and 11. I complained to the District
Overseer about the brush and blowdowns on the Whitecap side trail.
He suggested I might like to take care of that side trail myself. Twenty years
later my duties, among others, have expanded to a mile of the AT to maintain --
and 60 miles of the AT to oversee.
