      I created a new Meetup group for the Bend Friends. y'all can join it via my profile. We'll be posting lots of meetups soon. Heavy on the trail maintenance into the fall, and hopefully we'll be building trails by then, as well. :-)

    Still planning on making it to first shift! I'm coming from intown ATL. I plan to leave before 6 am. Hope to make it there by close to 7. I don't have a trowel or rake, only garden spade and gloves.

      Great! That's all the tools you'll need. The rake would be for trail maintenance if there's time, but your shift will be all planting for sure.
