January 29, 1983
Following on from last Wednesday’s Hardesty trailhead work session,
material to complete was indeed hauled to the site.
A hurriedly-arranged Saturday “follow-up” trip was organized,
and after a vehicle breakdown and FS wheelbarrow repair job, 5 cu. yds. of
crushed rock was eventually hefted into place, hopefully to dry and consolidate.
More intelligent placement of the bulk gravel would have been appreciated.
Though this well-versed crew got on with the job with minimal muttering, careless
administrative gaffes of this nature will surely damage the very ideals of
Volunteerism . . .
Long-distance gravel haulers were Mari Baldwin (with skis!) (?), Peter Cecil,
Betty Legris, Fred Schepman, Helen Smith and leader John Cecil.
