So far we have had two small work parties up there. Meghan and Roland (mostly Meghan) hauled in various supplies and materials for the renovation. And Tony, Anne, Roland hauled up the Solar Device, installed double windows, and treated the walls to get the mold off. We are now ready for the first big reno weekend.

Since Roland is coming we'll have at least one 4x4 and can shuttle to the end of the road. [img][/img] This means the hike in is 3-4km and 500m of elevation gain, almost all of it on a nice trail. If you're in reasonable shape this isn't too strenuous (although, we'll have some things which need to get carried up so you could always make it more strenuous by putting lots of heavy stuff in your pack...). [img][/img]

There isn't really anything up at the hut other than shelter - so you'll need to bring food, sleeping bag, stove, etc. (or share with someone who is). See Gear_lists#hiking_hut_trip for a complete list.

The hut is too far away (~450km round trip) to go for just a day, so we'll be up there the whole weekend leaving Vancouver early Saturday and returning late Sunday. Roland will go up Friday and come back Tuesday if his passengers can cope with this. (They probably can't)

Date For Round 1

June 13-14.

Optional pre-trip meeting Wednesday June 10th, at the intersection of Tolmie and the ocean (ie. Spanish Banks, frisbee) at 7pm. To do list is here: 2009_Brian_Waddington_hut_renovations

Participants (Car)

The hut has a nominal capacity of 24, and we're already at 26. For this reason I'm going to declare the trip full, unless you have a car in which case we'll make room for you until everybody has rides since people who can't escape Vancouver can't do any useful work.
