Cabin Work Trip

When: November 13 - 15, 2020

Where: TATC Cabin

Contact: Bob Adkisson at 757-627-5514 or cabin@tidewateratc.com

Description: Bob Adkisson will lead a work trip to the TATC Cabin in Nelson County on the weekend of November 13th-15th. The main job will be chainsawing and stacking/transporting firewood for the coming winter months. I hope to have both club chainsaws; I will operate one and I hope we have at least one person who is both experienced and willing to use the other. It wouldn't hurt to have a 3rd saw available, if anyone who signs up would like to bring their personal saw.

If the weather cooperates, all of the work will be done on Saturday, and folks are welcome to head home or to a Waynesboro motel if they like that night. Otherwise, I will try and limit the group size down to 8 or 9 people. No dogs or children on this particular trip please (and, as on ALL cabin work trips, no firearms are allowed). There will be no community meal Saturday night, and I will ask that some people be prepared to camp out instead of staying in the cabin. We will try and keep social distancing and wear masks when in the cabin together.

Newcomers to the club are welcome on this trip, and attending will qualify you to rent the cabin on your own in the future (at some point while we are there I will do a run thru of the cabin rules and talk about how to open/close up the cabin, how to operate and take care of it.

You need to bring a backpack (for the half mile walk to the cabin from where we park, on the Blue Ridge Parkway), boots, work gloves, appropriate warm clothing, sleeping bag and pad, and whatever food you will need for the period of time you will be there. Some type of ear protection would be good to have as well.

Call or email me to sign up. Any number over the limit of 9 people can be place on a wait list, in case there are dropouts. If you leave a message on our machine be sure to clearly state your name and phone number and we will get back to you ASAP. Email address is: cabin@tidewateratc.com
