Crew # 2 composed of Will Richard and Dick Anderson, almost completed the sprucing-up of all the trail in T5 R8 on the recent work trip. They installed the new sign, created by expert IAT/SIA Sign-maker Suzanne Goulet, at the north entrance to the IAT/SIA in T5 R8(see picture).
They also cleared new brush from all the blazes on this section of trail, cleaned up the Grand Pitch Campsite and accomplished extensive brushing of the trail just north and south of the Campsite. A total of eight blowdowns were also removed.
They were unable to fully complete the necessary work, so another work crew will be returning to the southernmost portion of the trail in T5 R8 on October 17th and 18th to finish the job.
Will and Dick stayed in the new EPI crew camp overlooking the Haskell Deadwater and found it a wonderful place to spend a night in the Maine woods.
