Hello Fellow AT Hikers! :sun

It's almost time for RPH 2007 July 20-22

This years project will be our most ambitious yet, and we need your help. We’ll be replacing the 25-year-old bridge near the RPH cabin in Hopewell Junction, NY.

We need 20-30 people each day in order to realize the goal of building a 30-foot bridge; no special skills are required, there will be plenty to do for everyone. We’ll be camping out and working all weekend, bring your tent (optional – you are welcome to come for the day or any part) and your ambition, you will be well fed!

This year, we have donations from LL. Bean, and ADK (Mid Hudson Chapter) and Central Hudson Gas & Electric will be donating telephone poles for the bridge.

If you would like to spend the weekend with fellow hikers from around the world and give back something to the trail or, if you just love the outdoors and hiking, come on down, Breakfast, lunch and diiner will be provided!

Contact Bascom (Tim Messerich) at 845-297-9573 or email him at [email protected] ([email protected]).

Preliminary work has already started. We'll be onsite at the shelter on National Trails Day (Sat June 2nd) pouring concrete for the bridge footing. We could use about 10 people to help out, check Bascoms website for more information:
