Well, I'd like to thank those folks that braved the monsoons to come out and lend a hand.
Due to the rain, the majority of the projects that were planned were scrapped. Mostly due to access issues. The bridge at the west staging area was unsafe on saturday, the bridge was floating in its abutments, and so was unsafe for any traffic across it.
McLean road was closed by the Minister of Transport, there was water washing over the road, and the road was pretty soft in parts.
I'l like to thank, in no particular order; Bill and Denise (bnine and spider), Tom (Asia), Dom (SwampSinger), Darren (Henry), Matt? (newf?) I think that is you, in between your SAR duties you came out and lent a hand.
Dave and his ECO folks for coming down, helping out with radios and with labour. (If and when you guys have a cleanup/project and you need help, just ask, we will be there).
I'd like to also thank Dave Dunlop (DiamondDave) for organising and getting everything together, the AURS BOD for the food and drink and helping get the word out, the various sponsors and folks that donated equipement, Tom Kelley for MC'ing, Dan for his environmental expertise, SRD for helping us help them, Vince and his radio operators, and likely a long list of others that I missed.
Sadly I don't have very many pics, I was too busy swinging a pick and digging to take the time and snag pictures.
All in all, a lot of water was diverted, a lot of boggin' holes were blocked off, a lot of fencing put up, and a lot of trail that we couldn't get to because of sketchy bridges.
