    Good Day! It wore me out and I slept solid as a rock last night. Our crew mowed and lopped three miles from Range Road 211 to Carr Spring Branch. The trail really need clearing. We all got a workout but especially mower operator John Hooten.

    Wish I could have been there to help, but work calls. I hope that I'll be available for other maintenance duties over time.

    I spoke with Jim Schmid (USFS) yesterday. Florida National Scenic Trail maintenance work can proceed as planned. No restrictions! The 'NO WORK ON THE FNST' notice has been rescinded.
