Many of you know Greg – he’s been wheeling with us for years, particularly on Sierra Trek & Fordyce. In the recent fires in Grass Valley, he lost everything. He managed to get out with a few minutes to spare, but only with his truck, laptop and the clothes on his back. He lost his house and pretty much everything on his property, including his 4×4.
Nikki has setup a GoFundMe to help raise some funds to help Greg get back on his feet:
Please help in any way you can.
Oct 13-15 the TNF guys will be going in from the Eagle Lakes trailhead and traveling most of the trail, with the plan to do some maintenance at several spots and scope out possible re-route below WH1 and take care of some other issues. I plan to go in with them, most likely camping around Cisco Grove the nite of Thurs Oct 12 and going in sometime Friday – exact times TBD. The Friends of Fordyce will put on a dinner Saturday nite somewhere on the trail. Let me know if anyone is interested/able to come up and help with fall cleanup, etc on the trail.
John Arenz just called to see if any Madhatters are interested in driving VIP’s into Spider Lake on October 11 for lunch and back to Loon Lake on the same day. I’m going to try to help. I’ll be back by then. John is not home right now but you can leave a message @ 530- 651-3028.
Thanks, see ya soon,
John&Rene, Carol & I and maybe Steph. & Art are going to be working in the Cantina kitchen Sat. 9am to 1pm it’s a lot of fun and food and drinks are free to volunteers. It’s not too late to join in. Let me know.

I wanted to express my gratitude for the generous gift delivered to me on the account of my graduation from Humboldt State University.
The Madhatters have always been my family, from those who have known me since I was on the trail at one month old -who I’ve known most of my life- to those new to the club who I am just getting to know. This club will continue to grow and change as we remember those we’ve lost and as we welcome those we have yet to meet. I only hope that we will continue the spirit of love and family that I have experienced as a member of the Madhatters and that we remember to laugh often, forgive quickly, and always have each others backs. Life is too short for anything else.
Words cannot express the love that I have for you all.
