I would really like to be a part of this. August or
Sept will work for me, but I will be out of state and will not have a weekend available until Aug 21-23 or 28-30? Since we all have various commitments this June-Sept'09, I hope Preston can nail a weekend date down soon (Fri to Sun..2nts/3days I prefer for those who can get away for an extra day/night). The Davey Gowan TH elevation is about 6100'+ with only a very small clear area for camping and almost no parking off FR201. The Peeley TH (at 5600' w/more shade) is another 1.45mls at the end of FR201 and has a large area for parking and camping(on the road area..if approved). I just remembered that probably the largest & best campsite area is ~1ml before the Davey Gowan TH down FR3348 (by the start of the upper Gold Ridge TH/TR#47).

This is the same thing that SuperstitionGuy went through with the Mesa Ranger Station to approve our last March'09 "Catclaw Revenge" work project out of the Woodbury TH. It is basicly a disclaimer agreement where one person who agrees to sponsor this project (Preston
)needs to take full responsibility for ALL. Also, ALL participants are required to also sign the agreement and then Preston will need to turn that document back in to the F/S after the project dates. SuperstitionGuy can add more to this, but I would recommend that Preston picks up a copy of all this F/S documentation ahead of time to understand what he would be signing up for.
