*** DUE TO THE WINTER STORM, THIS OUTING WILL BE POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE (PROBABLY IN MARCH). ***

We'll be working on improving part of Section 1 on of this 30-mile trail.  Bring a lunch, water, and bow saws or loppers if you have them (we do have extra).

Our plans are now to meet at the Hiking Trail Access on the west side of Ferguson Road along the north end of Big Slough Creek, just north of the long bridge.  We will also have a carpool location for those coming from the Kansas City area.

For details contact Steve Hassler at [masked] or[masked]-3296.  Directions and other details can be found at http://files.meetup.com/3966802/PERRY%20Feb%202013.pdf.  During the sign-in process all participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver.

    The Corps of Engineers office at Perry Lake advised me that the parking areas and access roads have not been plowed. As parking along the main road would be unsafe under these conditions, we will need to postpone the trip. Once we identify a suitable date, I will formally reschedule the event.

    In light of the recent winter storm, I'll be checking with the Corps of Engineers office at Perry Lake tomorrow concerning road and trail conditions. Saturday is forecast to be sunny, with a high of 36° and a low of 10°. Given the temperatures and snow cover, trail work would be somewhat limited. I'll furnish an update after I speak to the Corps office tomorrow. In the meantime, if the weather or any other circumstances require you to withdraw from Saturday's outing, please let me know so I can take that into consideration regarding possibly rescheduling the outing.

      I kinda wonder if we'll be able to get much done. I'm open on Mar 9 & 10.

    Steve, I apologize, but I've got a tennis elbow (from house painting - inside!), and I'm afraid using clippers or loppers is not going to be good for it. I won't be able to join you for trail maintenance at Perry Lake on Saturday. Hope you have a good day out there!

    Now that we've established our work site, I've changed our meeting site at the lake accordingly — it is now the Ferguson Road trailhead on the north side of the bridge across Big Slouch Creek. Please open the PDF file above to make sure you have directions to the new meeting site.
