Our decision to postpone our February trail maintenance from February 13th to the 20th turned out to be a good one.  A crew of eleven, David Weisel, Abe, Gabe and Sam Howe, Matt Edson, Iva Wood, Krister Raasoch and dogs Art and Harry, John Hudachek, John Herrick, Jim Schofield and Kim Nilsen met at 10 am at the Kilburn trail head with the goal of building a bridge on the west side of the Kilburn loop.  The day started with bright skies in the 30’s and finished at 57 F.
 
Matt Edson and John Herrick picked up the building materials from Hamshaw’s the previous Saturday.  John Herrick, his snowmobile and Kim Nilsen transported the materials down Kilburn Pond to the bank close to the bridge site the Monday before the workday.  

After hiking to the work site with tools the crew worked efficiently and had the bridge completed by 1:00 pm.  We even made a step with leftover materials.

We hiked back to the trail head and were leaving by 2:00 pm.  

Thanks to all for a very productive work day!
