On 1/3/09 ouachita hiker and I did regular trail maintance to our two sections of the Ouachita Trail.
Ar/Ok state line to FR514 3 miles out and back round trip
Talimena Scenic Drive to the Wizard Trees 2.8 miles out and back

Total of 5.8 miles

I did lots of lopping, the section from the scenic drive to the wizard trees hasn't had trail work done in a couple of years.

UL,

Speaking or Ed, we both say thanks! AS far as the milage it is very hard to do lots of miles and do work such as we did today. This is hard work! For instance the E. trail of the Caney system now is COMPLETLY CLEAR! At least till another tree falls! I took some pics but they wont go on the server till atlest Monday. By the TM I do feel like a invalid explores! By the way folks I didn't have any problems with my Right heal so I feel real good about that.

Thanks
