Buzzy... don't drop the ball! Talk to Mike and the Park Ranger on what needs to be done, and I think they will approve it. (I'm so sick of rules and regulations!) I'll donate to this project...!
I think folks are correct about the legality of permits. However, the ranger has let us do minor projects like setting stones and clearing fishing spots at the end of trails, but not as large a project as your talking about. To CYA maybe write a small proposal letter and the staff could sign off on it, so a useful project doesn't die in regulation.I guess "thanks" are in order; while not something I want to hear I do appreciate your response. Any other comments along this line out there? I just lost about all interest in doing anything towards improving this abysmal launch.
