Trail Project -  July17-23, 2022 Sawtooth Wilderness ( ITA Drop Camp Support - In & Out)
Work with the Idaho Trails Association (ITA) providing pack support for their trail crews.
Little Queens River trip going in 7/17/22 and coming out 7/23/22. This is about a 6 mile pack in from the Queens River, Little Queens River trailhead.  This group is 6 or 7 people with the Mini camp Kitchen, so 2 loads with Plastic Panniers, 2 Yeti 45 coolers then about 35 pounds per person so another 2 or 3 mule loads going in.  coming out the coolers will be empty so trash and some personal gear can fit in there on the way out.  With the plastic panniers I usually throw a top load on those to cut back on mule numbers.  (smaller group, less stock) Contact:  Dan Waugh Projects@sbbchidaho.org  (Packing team Dan)

Trail Project - July 17, 2022 Sawtooth Wilderness (ITA Drop Camp Support - IN)
Work with the Idaho Trails Association (ITA) providing pack support for their trail crews.
Baron Creek off the Grandjean campground trailhead.  It’s about a 5 mile trip up to the camp. This is a 12 person High School Crew so we will want the big two burner stove, some more tables, and 2 sets of plastic panniers, 2 yeti 45 coolers and the personal gear,  this historically is about 10 mule loads going in, but only 5 miles two trips a day can be made easily.  For both these trips the panniers will be packed and balanced and ready to go, same with the coolers, ITA has my big oversized panniers that fit the big coolers only one set though.  The personal gear will need to be weighed, and mantied.

Trail Project August 27, 2022  Loon Lake Crew Pack-out  (ITA Drop Camp Support)
The packout for 10 people with backpacks and approx 10 tools (pulaskis, shovels, loppers) would be Saturday, August 27th. If you could be at Loon Lake by 9 am that would be ideal to give the kids enough time to hike out, get gear organized, and have parents pick them up by noonish. We will be going to the trail head on Friday afternoon and leaving for the lake early.

We can pay your mileage at .625/mile. I have a form I will send you to fill out (very short) for reimbursement after the project.  I will plan on taking my stock in Friday evening and bringing the crew dinner and breakfast, so if you could pack out any gear I have to leave on Saturday I can get it back from Barry Miller, the crew leader, the following week. I won't leave panniers or mantis in there so you can bring what you normally use.

Here is a link to the info on the campground- Chinook has spaces for stock camping.  Scroll down a ways for a map, too. Let me know if you need any other info.  Melanie Vining

Directions:
 From McCall, follow the Warren Wagon Road (21) north for 36 miles. Turn right at the Chinook Campground sign and follow Forest Road #378 for one mile to the campground.
