Hey folks, after last week's attempt to haul roofing to Granite mountain via llama train, we are going to "Plan B". We will be holding a "hauling party" on Saturday, Sept 24th, starting at 8 am at the Granite Mountain trailhead and we are inviting you to come give us a hand (or some feet) to haul bundles of roofing up to the lookout so we can repair the roof. We will have 5, 10, and 20 lb bundles to select from (in assorted colors) and would love to have your assistance with this effort to preserve another one of our historic fire lookouts. We will have representatives at the trailhead to help you load your bundles, but please bring a pack and if you have some, a few bungie cords to help secure your bundles (we'll have some para cord there to help out). Thanks in Advance! Snoqualmie Fire Lookouts Association

Turns out Saturday is the 24th. Can you confirm this is the correct date? smile.gif

Starting at 8 am will probably miss a number of the "beat the crowd" people that are fairly prevalent at more popular trailheads, and who probably aren't going to wait around until 8 just to grab a bundle. You might want to think about having at least some bundles there by 7 am.

Apparently people have already been taking bundles.

It is impossible to know in advance how many people will show up, but it is believed that there will be enough. smile.gif

Great group of folks packed up and carried all the supplies up today. Some of us knew in advance but many who just happened upon the signage in the lot. Spectacular fall colors, camaraderie and restored faith in human kind today!

Ocian in view! O! The joy! William Clark

Thanks Snowmonkey (and anyone else on here who hauled). 750 lbs of roofing materials and gear were set up in the parking lot by 7:45-- by 8:45 all of it was on someone's back heading for the lookout! We even had folks show up later in the morning who were disappointed that didn't have more to haul (thought about giving them a rock or two to haul, but that would have been cruel). Thanks for everyone's support!!
