Actually, that message was developed by Phil Fosterman, but I've passed it
on to him.  Ed worked as my Trails Management Coordinator when I was PATC
Supervisor of Trails, then he moved up as Director of Administration, and is
now currently the Club Secretary.  He was well aware of the SNP rules on
safety equipment, so it's a mystery to me why he decided not to use them,
especially considering the picture was going to be so visible in the
Washington Post.

>PS -- BTW we cleared 40+ downed trees in the two miles north of Jenkins Gap.

I took out 8 myself last Saturday.  It's tough work!
