    Back to Boundary Work!!

    Ron Bungay wonders:  Can the third time be the charm?

    When: November 12 & 13, 2020
    Where: Blackburn Trail center.

    Finally, a restart to ALDHA"s boundary work program is a possiblity.  Please arrive on Wednesday November 11.  

    Let it be known there is a 50/50 likelihood that this work trip will be cancelled. Hopefully be the end of September the fate of the work trip will be known.  We will update the work schedule, housing provisions, food, etc in the October Blaze.  Please, watch for updates.

    Two other Corridor/Boundary Work Trips scheduled for the Spring of 2020 were a no go because of Covid-19. I hope my tenure as the ALDHA Work Trip Coordinator will end on a positive note!  Due to my retirement, ALDHA needs another Boundary work coordinator.  Please contact me, Ron Bungay for more information at 

    Ryan Seltzer -ATC, Chris Brunton-PATC, Bob Huff and myself have been involved in organizing the ALDHA work trips. Our partnership in the Boundary program with the ATC will  mean that they will be involved in the decision making process, also. Here's hoping the third time is a charm.

    Hi there,

    I am a musician / songwriter in Portland, OR and one of our fans who walked the PCT last year suggested that I contact you. We just released a new single / video titled Top Of The World. The song is dedicated to co-writer Kelly Brightwell's Mom and her journey at the age of 71 walking the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail in Spain a few years back. It's a song that reminds all of us that we are not alone and the struggle is worth it in the end. Please feel free to share.
    All the best,

    We're having a used clothing/gear sale on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hiker Fair, Greylock Hall.  We'll do a 50/50 member/ALDHA split.

    All items must be clean, not stinky, and in decent and/or working condition.

     On Friday, Oct. 11, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday morning beginning at 9 a.m., participants can check in their items at Greylock Hall. You’ll fill out a numbered tag with a very brief item description and the price (price it to sell, and the price is final – ALDHA volunteers will not negotiate prices.) Your cell phone number is optional. Affix the tag to the item. You’ll retain the numbered bottom portion to later retrieve your cash or item. If you want to donate your 50 percent portion of the sale price to ALDHA, please write a visible “A” on the tag.

      We have an ALDHA member who runs a high school outing program who is willing to take some unsold items. If you’d like to donate your unsold item to the outing program, write a visible “D” on the tag.  

       You can check in at the sale to see if your items sold and to retrieve your cash, up until 5 pm Saturday. Though the sale is officially scheduled for just Saturday, an ALDHA volunteer will be at Greylock Hall from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13 to assist in the retrieval of items and dispense sales money.


      All sales are cash only.

      Very important: ALDHA cannot keep any of these items. The high school outing program will not necessarily take every unsold item. Please, you have to check on and, if necessary, retrieve your unsold items later Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon. Thanks in advance for complying with this.

      For questions, contact Jim Niedbalski, Gathering facilities coordinator, at jim.niedbalski@aldha.org
