September 8th, 2012 – Bolles Trail

Morning weather was not promising with low clouds and fog on the drive in. It turned out to be a perfect day for playing in the water. After meeting at the little bridge at Chocorua Lake a crew of 6 headed to the trail-head. Forest Service gave us permission to take a vehicle in behind the gate so the trailer was right at the work-site. We used the Clydesdale winch and the walk-e-dog winch ( a Chinese Griphoist copy). We used both winches a couple of times and additional cables,chains, and straps in multiple configurations but we were not able to use a high-line as initially proposed due to the size of the stones we chose and distances the rocks had to be moved. Five stones were moved into place to make the crossing easier for all. Workers were Dave Dick, Bob Spoerl, Bob Seston, Howard Mathews, Jean-Sebastien Roux, Bernie Calder and Tim Twitchell.
