ROAD DRAG    This is a large length of dozer track that can be pulled behind a vehicle to "smooth" out Bat Rock Road.  It has a new harness which I installed. It exists somewhere near the road at preferable  either end.  

I would like to encourage anyone to pull it, a trailer ball works best, when coming in or out of the springs.  Note:  It is set on an angle so it will kick rocks off the road to the left but it may leave a rock/boulder in the road if a rock/boulder where to be caught by the right side of the drag.     So  set your mirrors to view drag and tend to have it somewhat to the left side of the road.  If you encounter an on coming car stop so they don't hit the drag with their tire. You take the right of way, let them move off the road.  No need to drag it up onto the  hard shelf the springs are located on, only works in the sandy rocky part of the road which is 95% of the road.

The park service recommends we use fire pans and remove our ashes. The firepans supplied by SPA some years back and looking kind of rough. If you have something that might serve as a firepan (old weber bbqs work really well!), such donations to the camp would likely be well received.

Part of the magic of the Springs is that this exceptional environment has been created and maintained by the people who use it. The best tradition has been one of personal responsibility to this end, by people bringing in what is needed and making that personal contribution rather than just paying some money and  hoping someone else takes care of things. Contributions of any kind are welcome, but I think there is a little more personal magic invested when we contribute something truely tangible.

Here is my suggestion as to how to make this work. If you see something listed here as "needed" then go ahead and take it in if you can, and make a post indicating you are taking in that item. People who are interested in supporting this thread should ask Lee what is currently needed, and then post it here when you get back to town. Remember: if you are taking something in, let us know so we dont end up with as many (garden hoses) as we currently have toilet paper pallettes! (hint: we have plenty of toilet paper at the moment)
