Lienart, it is supposed to be on the 24th at 9am.
I haven't been told different by Charlie. He sent me an email a couple of weeks ago about it. I posted about it on the Conservation and Clubs forum. Seems like your offer to help Roy with the website was not taken seriously.

I'm planning on being there also on the 24th. I'm new at this acid deposition thing. I'm looking forward to it. If this cold weather breaks we could possibly wet a line before dark.

I am willing to car pool from Knoxville. My truck will hold 3+me (Ford Exploder). Iím also game for being chauffeured.

Leinart, I not trying to be smart but I'm hesitant to ride in vehicle called an "Exploder". HA HA!!
I live up in Sevier Co. so I'll probably just see ya'll there on Sat.

I will be there and carpooling is a good thing both for the wallet and the environment. I need to pass on this one due to the fact that I don't know yet what I will do after the program is over. I have a couple of options. 1. Stop and fish somewhere. 2.Go back home immediately and take care of a couple of things I should have done this weekend. You all get the picture. I think I need to drive solo on this one. thanks for the offer though and we still need to team up in the future for some fishing. See ya! saturday.

It's great to see all of you interested in the Acid Deposition project. We started this about 13 years ago. Paula and I did it for a few years before we got in the flyshop business in a serious way. Our site began at campsite 23, several miles from our truck. Back then we could drive up the East Prong of the Little River much further than you can now. The very first time we did this it snowed. We walked several miles and when we got to Goshen Prong we realized that a piece of equipment that we needed was left in the truck. Joe Hatton, the "Ultimate TU Volunteer" walked back to the truck in the snow and got the equipment we needed. I bet he put in 24 miles that day. This has been an extremely worthwhile project. You will have a lot of fun and learn much about our trout streams and in the long run you will be essential in keeping them populated with trout. It's also an honor to be part of the Fisheries Department that Steve Moore and Matt Kulp do such an excellent job managing.
