August 19 - 22, 2007 -- The gathering started off slowly as alumni began to fill up the campsite. We weren't the only ones arriving at Yellow Pines, as our first black bear sighting occurred before 7pm. It meandered along a fallen tree and checked out Rob's tent on the edge of the forest, squashing his straw hat in the process. The bears were to be an exciting part of the upcoming 3 days.

We headed to the mountain for our first 10-day hitch, which came and went in the blink of an eye. The crew and I busted it out and built some beautiful trail.
It's a different forest and different trail than any I've worked in before. The goopy, gushing mud is impossible to work with, so we're building over it with multiple kinds of wood steps and walkways.
