    A somewhat historic milestone for our A. T. Museum:
    The April 3rd A. T. Museum Board Meeting was the 1st annual
    board meeting held in the A. T. Museum ! Joe had set up some tables
    and chairs on the "under-construction" 2nd floor level. Although it was
    a rough, unfinished room, we accomplished much and made plans for
    this 2016 season. To see your Museum Board at work,

    LANDSCAPE PLANTING WITH PHOTOS AT MUSEUM ~ NEW MUSEUM HOURS MAY 7th. !
    ~ TRAIL DAYS FESTIVAL ! ~ AT HALL OF FAME TICKETS ! ~ MAY PARK PROGRAMS ~ MORE !


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    Howard Davis (board member) drew up a landscape plan to do
    an installation of large landscape specimens about The Museum.
    He had already planted the small pines in the design.

    Quite recently, Howard rounded up his crew of volunteers ~
    Dan Taylor, Jay Sexton (Museum Treasurer) and Jack Adams (Chief of
    Ramp Construction). Work began in earnest when the trailer full of plants
    arrived ~ for photo, click on: CREW & TRAILER
    The list of these large landscape specimens includes 3 Service Berry,
    1 White Pine, and a Red Bud ! A Service Berry took Jay, Dan, and Howard
    to drag it in a dolly over to its spot among the wood ramps !
    ~ for a photo, click on: DOLLY

    Then on the other side of The Museum, Howard, Jack, and Jay brought the
    large Red Bud down those ramps which go to the lower level.
    ~ view photo, click on: RED BUD & RAMPITHEATER
    It was planted at the southwest corner of The Museum, wrapped around
    by the stairs ~ to view, click on: RED BUD AT CORNER

    Howard gave much attention and some hard work getting the Service Berries
    and the White Pine situated into their new homes on the front northeast corner
    among the wood ramps.
    ~ to see photo, click on: HOWARD BETWEEN WOOD RAMPS
    The final result is that the wood ramps wrap around this landscape planting,
    so that in the future as they grow, a visitor to The Museum will walk among
    totally native plant materials, such as are found most anywhere along the AT,
    as they make their entrance into the Appalachian Trail Museum.

    "Appalachian Trail Museum Friends, I traveled for two weeks,
    May 4th. through May 17, spending about a week at the cabin
    of John "Bodacious" Beaudet and Francis Figart in Flag Pond, Tenn.,
    and then a week in Damascus, Virginia for the Trail Days Festival !

    While at Flag Pond, I helped "Bodacious" stain all the walking sticks
    which will be handed out to this year's AT Hall of Fame inductees;
    we did a little trail work on his section of the AT from Indian Grave Gap
    south; went up to Beauty Spot; walked into the Rocky Fork Wilderness;
    and drove up through Wolf Laurel, then walked up then over 6,000 foot
    Big Bald (really high-country with spectacular views, strong gale gusts,
    and spots of ice still on the ground) !

    Here are a few nice photos, click on each to view:

    John drove me up to Damascus on Monday, May 9th. and
    I lodged in my usual room #2 at Dave's Place (the MRO hostel).
    Howard Davis, recent past Museum Manager, arrived late the same day;
    next morning, we had a wild blueberry-pancake breakfast at Cowboys !
    Then we drove up the 2 highest mountains in Virginia, White Top
    and Mount Rogers ( on which we parked and walked up to see the ponies
    near Rhododendron Gap ) ! Next day we went over to the Mount Rogers
    Headquarters/Museum Building, and looked at all the exhibits there.
    Then walked down to the nearby Partnership Shelter to check it out
    and its hot-water shower ! I told Howard about May of 1997, when
    a group of us (Nimblewill Nomad, Pirate, Teaberry & Double Cup, and
    myself were there when the hot-water was first turned on !
    It was the first shelter with a hot-water shower inside ! Nimblewill
    put that event and our names in his book 10 Million Steps .
    Unfortunately, Howard suddenly had to return home the next day,
    Thursday, to be there for his wife who was ill .

    Thursday, the A. T. Museum table was moved out of the ALDHA tent !
    ALDHA didn't have the usual adequate table display space to accommodate
    our A. T. Museum display (it had been created months before Trail Days).
    So, it was set up in the same room at the One Way Ministries Church in which
    we also display our AT Traveling Exhibit. The location, directly across
    the road from the main entrance to the hiker's campground,
    saw a lot of traffic every day from 8 AM until 10 PM., since the church serves
    many free meals to the hikers, maintains a coffee house in part of the
    building every day for the hikers with free coffee, lemonade, snacks,
    sandwiches, cheese nachos, as well as meals ! Additionally, each night
    they have a live band that plays until 10 PM. The extended time for viewing
    our A. T. Museum display saw many interested hikers come through
    and ask questions about the Museum. I gave out all of the new
    A. T. Museum decal stickers I had brought along from home !
    In total, the new location is an improvement !

    Sunday and Monday mornings (May 14th. & 15th.) had temperatures in the

    It was a wonderful and successful trip all around " ! ~ Red Wolf

    Here is a letter from Sandra Marra, Chair - Appalachian Trail Conservancy,
    which I pass along to you:
    "On behalf of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club, Chris and I
    would like to ask for your support with a very important project.
    The Club is undertaking a fundraising effort to create
    a sustainable waste management system at the Blackburn Trail Center.
    In other words we are finally going to install flush toilets!
    In addition we are going to build a new pit toilet house for all
    of our hikers to include heat and lights!

    You know Blackburn and how important it has been for Chris and me.
    We met there, married there, and for the past two years we have
    even lived there. And while the project will most likely not be completed
    this season I know that this upgrade will benefit visitors and
    future caretakers for years to come.

    Please take a look at the attached letter and
    consider making a donation today.
    You can donate online at:
    www.patc.net/donate (at the "select fund" menu choose Blackburn 21)

    Once the project is completed Chris and I will be hosting
    a special thank you and inaugural flushing event at the Center.
    We will be thrilled to have you join us there.

    Of course to fully appreciate these improvements
    you are always welcomed to come and visit us under the current
    rustic conditions as well. We'd love to see you!

    With fond regards, Chris and Sandra"

    Default Museum Activities Last Weekend ~ Report ! ~ Photos & More !

    MUSEUM ACTIVITIES LAST WEEKEND ! ~ 2016 AT H of F Banquet Program ~ 3 PHOTOS
    ~ Gwen's TV INTERVIEW ! ~ MUSEUM & PARK PROGRAMS ~ & MORE !


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    Here are a few of the many comments heard over last weekend's
    activities ~ the AT Hall of Fame Banquet, the Saturday Children's Festival
    & Exhibit Dedication, and the Sunday's Special Program:

    Regarding the AT Hall of Fame Banquet:
    Anonymous ~ It seems just like yesterday Jim you were sharing this brainstorm of yours,
    and look how successful, meaningful, and well established it has become.
    I saw how hard you and others were working last night--and I know much work
    has taken place in the months preceding.

    Jim Foster ~ It was a very successful evening.
    We had a total of 99 attendees and/or tickets sold.
    That's a new record, just edging out the first year, 2011.

    Anon. ~ Kudos on a terrific effort that is such an important element of preserving
    the Appalachian Trail's history and honoring those who have contributed so much
    to making the A.T. the amazing phenomenon it has become.

    Anon ~ The AT Hall of Fame Banquet has really become something
    to look forward to. The AT Hall of Fame makes the history of the trail come alive !

    Anon ~ Well done, Jim and the rest of the crew!
    A wonderful event, again !

    Regarding the entire weekend:
    Anon ~ There were great vibes running through this joyful weekend.
    The Museum, the Park, the County and all the volunteers have made it
    such a positive place to be.

    Anon ~ Larry, You are to blame for getting this crazy idea to fruition !

    I want to pass along to you for review, the Banquet Program.

    Additionally, here are a few photos:

    click on: TRAIL MIX BLENDING

    Throughout all the success our A. T. Museum enjoys, there remains that
    one, solid AT element seen over and over ~ THE VOLUNTEER.
    From all the volunteer docents who first greet visitors at the Museum door,
    to the many "behind-the scene volunteers" whose myriad efforts, if written
    on paper, would be way to long for this feeble email to contain. Then one
    can not forget that host of financial volunteers whose contributions, not only
    keep our doors open with coverage of daily operations, but continue to
    make possible the expansion we are doing into the remainder of our building !
    THANK YOU, volunteers, for our success. Your efforts were particularly
    in full view last weekend -- our AT Hall of Fame Weekend !

    Default Volunteers - Museum Expansion Report - Plaque Deadline Soon ! - Gatewood's PBS docum.

    VOLUNTEERS APPRECIATED ! ~ TOUR OF EXPANSION WORK ! ~ BUILDING FUND PLAQUE DEADLINE SOON ! ~
    ~ GRANDMA GATEWOOD DOCUMENTARY ON PBS ~ & MORE !


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Society Friends, "GREETINGS" !

    I want to say a BIG "THANK YOU" to all our supporters for the success
    we have with our Appalachian Trail Museum ~ the success in its day-to-day
    operations, as well as the wonderful expansion taking place into the
    remaining upper two levels of the "Old Mill" building.

    HATS OFF TO OUR VOLUNTEERS !
    "THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS for your efforts"

    ~ they show in the number of the days and hours we are open, as well as in
    the amount of 2016 visitors (6,222 as of July 31 and yet open until November) !

    ~ they show in the well-done completion of so many small but important tasks

    like cutting the grass, cleaning,etc., etc.
    NOTE: Joe can always use another volunteer --> info@atmuseum.org).

    ~ they show in the landscape, and in the construction to open the upper two levels

    for A. T. Museum usage.

    "THANK YOU, FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTORS" for your generosity. It has made
    and continues to make our Appalachian Trail Museum the success it is.
    Note, December 31, this year 2016 is THE DEADLINE for contributions to give
    you a listing or upgrade your listing on the new, permanent plaque ! It will be
    hung in The Museum in June 2017 ~ for view there the Saturday after our annual
    AT Hall of Fame Banquet ! More about the plaque and its present listings later.

    FIRST, A RAMP TOUR ENDING IN THE UPPER TWO LEVELS OF THE MUSEUM !
    We will tour the ramp construction, as it now is, and up into the upper two levels
    to see some of the work done there. More on both the ramp and the upper levels
    remains to be done, but we have come a long way!
    A BIG "THANK YOU" to our volunteers and to you, our financial contributors
    ~ "MANY THANKS, INDEED" !

    TOUR OF CONSTRUCTION
    ~ UP RAMPS AND INTO THE UPPER TWO LEVELS BY SCRIPT AND PHOTOS !
    Our tour begins with the VIEW OF RAMP TO UPPER LEVELS FROM ROAD.
    Then we go to the deck outside the present main door to the incomplete beginning
    of the RAMP CONSTRUCTION TO UPPER LEVELS~ the last section that remains
    to be built ! We step through the prepared soil (the deck's extension to the ramps)
    to where the COMPLETED RAMP BEGINS~ what fine, sturdy metal handrails
    are on the ramps sides ! Then, its on up the ramp toward the RAMP SWITCH-BACK
    ~ this road-side view of the ramps shows a break in the rails for another entrance !
    We get another ramp and building view GOING UP RAMP PAST SWITCH-BACK !
    And arrive for the RAMP VIEW AT TOPwith the corner of the building on the left,
    and below on right, the lower ramp, the road, and the A. T. Museum's sign !

    Now inside we see the UPPER LEVEL INTERIOR ~ the wood ceiling installation,
    and with insulation ! The sheet rock walls look good ~ the construction materials all
    about shows the various, involved variety of jobs taking place here ! Then up to
    the attic for more INTERIOR CONSTRUCTION~ Jeff Seal and the incomplete ceiling,
    with insulation (to keep the heat and the cool in ~ building is climate controlled with
    both heating and cooling already installed) ! Both focused on the ceiling installation,
    we find JEFF SEAL (L) & RON BUNGAY AT WORK FOR THE MUSEUM! ~ TH END !

    BUILDING-FUND-PUSH-TO-THE-PLAQUE-DEADLINE CAMPAIGN !

    our building expansion and to outfit these additional two levels with success.

    Default W I T F's Broadcast from the Pine Grove General Store

    WEDNESDAY"S WITF BROADCAST LINKS ! ~ BUILDING FUND CAMPAIGN DEADLINE ~ & MORE !

    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    WITF's Smart Talk broadcast, produced August 8, which aiired on
    Wednesday, features several A. T. Museum folk, among them are the
    A. T. Museum Manager Joe Harold, "Drag'N Fly", "Freckles", Andre Weltman, and others !

    The Smart Talk program was produced at the General Store in

    Pine Grove Furnace State Park, within sight of the Appalachian
    Trail Museum, and actually on the AT ! This is the latest in the
    Smart Talk Road series. This broadcast was hosted by Scott Lamar.

    With Pine Grove Furnace at about the midpoint of the 2,200-mile AT,
    much of the discussion focuses on hiking and hiking culture.
    Two of the guests on the program –Nan “Drag’N Fly” Reisinger and
    Carolyn “Freckles” Banjak – have hiked the entire length of the Trail
    from Georgia to Maine, ending the hike at The A. T. Museum ! In fact
    breaking the record, Nan "Drag’N Fly” Reisinger is the oldest woman
    to ever through-hike the AT !

    The show explores what the Appalachian Trail Museum has to offer.
    Smart Talk also touches on topics such as conservation, the outdoors, state parks,
    and history, including the history of the furnace that was used to make iron.

    Appearing on Smart Talk are Cindy Dunn, Secretary of the Pennsylvania
    Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.; Joe Harold, Manager
    of the A. T. Museum; and Andre Weltman, President and Historian with
    Friends of Pine Grove Furnace State Park.
