Hey everybody, Thi here to tell you about this week’s hitch. Due to some run-ins with local wildlife, the hungry bear kind, we are no longer sleeping among the tree frogs. Resting peacefully slightly closer to civilization we’ve managed to install 262 feet of new tread on our trail, 1 rock crib and flag 400 feet of new trail.
For the uninitiated, trail crew is a strange mix of camping, landscaping, and construction work. All of our time is spent either sleeping, eating, working, or preparing for one of those activities. Since I dream mostly about food my list is slightly shorter.
One of my favorite T.V. shows involves a pretty young lady who travels around and eats all of her meals on $40 a day. Imagine my shock when I was told that through bulk food orders and careful planning we feed 6 crew members with $7.50 per person per day. For the price of one oversized fast food “value” meal, we get three sit down group meals and two snacks a day. The cooking has only been limited by imagination as we have explored American, Mexican, Italian, Indian, and Asian cuisine.
Sound interesting? Visitors are welcome so come get your hands dirty and your belly full!
