Volunteers for Harry Gates Hut 8/7/12 -8/9/12

Postby lisatema » Sat Aug 04, 2012 11:14 pm

Hello 14er Fans... So I am an avid Peak Bagger-- I've climbed 25 of the 14ers so far... but I have a favor to ask my fellow 14er fans. Anyone also a fan of the 10th Mountain Hut Division? I have been volunteering for them for 13 years now and we chop all the firewood and get the huts ready for the winter. I am in charge of a volunteer trip to the Harry Gates Hut outside of Eagle 8/7/12 through 8/9/12 and need 5 more volunteers. You get to stay at the hut for free while you work and as a thank you for volunteering, you get free credits to use for winter or summer trips. If you are interested, you can find more information at www.huts.org or please e-mail me, Lisa, at lisatema@gmail.com. Thanks for your help and for letting me post this! The huts need your help! Happy 14ering!

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

Hi Lisa,
I'm happy to post some info on my FB account. I'm dogsitting so I can't make this volunteer effort, but we really want to join in on one of the Sept efforts. Is there info on the route to the hut (roughness of road, etc...)? Feel free to send me a PM on here.

Thanks and good luck!
