for the AT/LT boundary monitoring volunteer work - sounds tedious. I was hoping to get up to VT to finish the LT this summer but they are still requiring a quarantine coming from DE so I think I will have to postpone. I would also like to get up there to do some trail crew work with the GMC at some point.
Just officially opened up the shelters yesterday. Saw a couple thru hikers on Monday. Probably will be busy this weekend. VT continues to open up slowly, they've been very conservative to good effect.
We were in a thick area Monday. As I recall south of rte 4 the whole western slope is open birch forest. I'm hoping that will be easy travelling. This is like slow rogaining with a control every 400m plus guide marks along the way. Handling the big survey maps, signs, hammer and a can of paint is a bit much, though. I expected to take about an hour per mile, but it turns out a mile is about a day's worth.
If you make it up again, let me know if you need a shuttle. I can get all over the state without any trouble.
