Lady Lee was raised in the suburbs of Connecticut performing her daughterly duties and becoming a true American patriot. Her fierce beauty is that of a setting sun over the Rockies, her eyes recalling a stormy Atlantic. Lee believes in freedom and justice for all. She has spent much time traveling to the corners of this majestic land hiking and camping, pack on back ready for adventure. Lee also embodies the principle of the American dream, in her travels searching for of rivers of cheese and mountains of pasta that will satisfy her. Each night her mind is filled with visions of feasts as endless as she wishes her blocks of cheese were. Lee would like to thank everyone who has helped her become who she is today, especially the good people at Tilamook, Kraft, and Velveeta.
As a child, Katy Petrisin spent her years developing a conservational attitude towards life and basking in the proximity of Disney World. This has led to her overriding philosophy that anything can be made magical. After a year at the University of Central Florida, Katy has decided to escape her palm-tree confinements and see different parts of the country that are less sunny and less close to Disney World. She decided to start by jetting off to Northern California, living in a tent, and gaining experience living in the outdoors while simultaneously helping to preserve the forest in which she is living. After the summer, Katy plans to take a road trip across the US and spread the conservation gospel wherever she goes. This will continue until the everpresent magic of Disney World calls her back once again.
Reared in the wilds of the Alabama woods, Daniel DeVaughn gained an education
in the ways of Nature at an early age. He went on to study English at the
University of Alabama at Birmingham, the ruin of which he smote and left
in the summer of 2009. The opportunity to work with the SCA is one of
fortuitous serendipity. Daniel hopes to expand his skill as carpenter, increase
his awareness of conservation and ecology, erstwhile becoming a stronger
and more present member of the human league.
For the first few days our group was together we spent it in learning about what a community is, how we all play a part in the community we form and how to deal with conflict within it. We also had training seminars including sexual harassment and Drive Safe Drive Smart. We went through the SCA handbook and learned the Emergency Response Plan and where it is kept around our camp. The two members of our crew old enough to drive learned how to drive reverse and park the truck with a trailer attached. Because of the nature of our project we spent a day becoming Certified Renovators and learned how to safely work with lead paint.
We started work on the cabin on the fence, repairing or replacing 120 feet. This included digging new post holes, sawing and chiseling notches to create rests for cross pieces, cutting posts to be the correct height and assembling the final product. With the help of a work crew from the National Forest we emptied the cabin of all the old furniture and junk, removed barbed wire from around the perimeter, and cleared pathways. We removed old scrap wood and fallen trees from around the property. We repainted the Plummer Ridge sign. We removed an old stump and took out a deck that was falling apart. We also removed an old antenna that was attached to the back of the cabin. We took measurements and inventory of all the repairs that needed to be done on the outside of the cabin.
Within the cabin there was a lot to do! We began by spraying down the cabin with bleach and water to prevent anyone from getting hanta. Then we wiped down all the walls, ceilings, doors and cabinets, taped of areas not to be painted, then painted them with primer. After the primer dried we came back through and painted with a lovely eggshell color. We also painted the trim of the windows in olive green, classic!
Our next step was the flooring. We tore up the old linoleum flooring and painstakingly scraped off all the glue and paper residue that was stuck to the original flooring. We patched up holes in the floor and put down a moisture barrier. Our next step is to install the wood flooring.
