Winter Backpacking/trail maintenance

The weather is looking good for this weekend. I'm thinking about joining the VWA for this trip. Anyone else interested?

Join Ventana Wildernes Alliance for 3 days, 2 nights on an 8 mile hike
in to Pine Ridge Camp and then work on the Black Cone Trail. Fabulous
views. Weather and road conditions permitting, we'll meet at 8:30am on
Saturday, Jan 15th at Jamesburg to organize and distribute gear.

As is our usual practice, this will be an individual commissary trip,
but we will have optional shared appetizers (or more substantial fare)
on Saturday night.Bring all of your hiking and camping gear and food;
the VWA will provide tools, gloves, and training. The expected focus
of our work is the gnarly warty leaf ceanothus about 1 to 1.5 miles
from the top of the Black Cone Trail, which burned in the 1999 fire
but not in the 2008 fire. This will be primarily lopper and hand saw
work. The hike in and out to Pine Ridge Camp is significant, so
participants must be in good shape. Contact Leader: Dave Knapp at
