The ABC has adpoted the southernmost 4 miles of passage 17 on the AZT...we're officially stewards! woohoo! To make it even more official, we went out and did our first bit of trail maintenance and check-up. Half of the group walked in from Picketpost TH (about 7.5mi) and the rest of us took my truck filled with water, tools and gear down FR4 to the junction.

Now that's a nasty bit of road!

The driving group hiked to the end of the passage, then worked back toward camp. The hiking group worked forward from camp and was supposed to meet us. We saw evidence of them (lots of hacked catsclaw), but didn't meet them. It seems that they'd turned back early to grab extra water to bring to us. A couple of old-timers on the trail had reported to the other group that we were in trouble...or at least that the 13 year old with us was. Anyone who know 13 year olds knows how they can 'ham it up', and that's just what happened! We caught the rescuers just before they left camp again, and we all had a good laugh.

Anyhow - we had a great time, did a little more maintenance on Sunday while the hikers headed back to Picketpost and we once again bumped along on FR4.

Lunch at Los Hermanos was fantastic - tying up a fun weekend!
