Appalachian Trail Service Project – Sat. April 2
Appalachian Trail Service Project
Sat. April 2 – 9am-4pm
Meet at A.T. & PA Rt 501
Did you know Kittatinny Lodge is one of only a handful of OA Lodges with regular service in supporting the Appalachian Trail? This year we will again be working with the Blue Mountain Eagle Climbing Club (https://www.bmecc.org, section maintainers on the A.T. in our area) on a dis-assembly (not destruction) project on the Lundgren Property, near the junction of the A.T. and PA Rt 501. Because of the location, we’ll need hand tools and battery operated tools. Three parts of the project include: Move a replacement wood stove; dis-assemble a 5-sided deck and stack lumber which will later be moved to a new location in NY; and remove decking boards from tent platforms and replace with new deck boards, and stack old boards for later pickup. Tools needed for the day will be pry bars, claw hammers, sockets and ratchet wrenches, gloves, cordless drills (R1, R2, star & phillips bits); cordless circular saw with ripping blade, vice grips, tape measures, chalk line, combination squares, pencils. As you can see, this is more technical than some of our previous projects. Project will be BYOL (Bring Your Own Lunch) in a small backpack. BSA Medical Form A-B required to participate. Please bring with you. Please register early so we can plan which projects we will be able to tackle and coordinate tools being brought.
