Comments
Comments: In 104 hours since the gate opened, we have
- raked or re-dug 75 waterbars and about 80 yards of side ditches,
- added 17 paver rocks across mudholes,
- removed 8 blowdowns from 9 miles of trail,
- re-posted signs at jct WRdg-Skyland Trs. New post PT rated ground contact.

Cardigan Highlanders still at work after 30 years, most recruits returning and earning their tartan after 3rd day's work. Today we R&R old woodwork and add barricade on bootleg trails.
