Latest news on track clearing Samoa to Manila

Things are going well with track clearing. I figure about another 1,400 feet and we will have the path from Samoa to the first crossing in Manila done, and opened up. We figure about a day or two to make it through.

There is about 1.23 miles to go from this 1st crossing in Manila to Sierra Pacific with a mix of heavy to light brush, and even short sections of clear track. Of that, I figure about 3,813 feet of that is heavy to unknown density of brush, and thus will be slow going. I figure about one to two days to get to the park from the 1st crossing.

With some volunteers unable to make it during our schedule, we have moved it to a every Saturday schedule at 9 AM.

Video here. I put it in a higher quality AVI. Please let me know what you think. It takes much longer to upload the video from home this way. I need to figure out a way to stabilize the video camera so it isn’t so bouncy, and protect it from shock. If I rest it on one of the speeder bars, the video camera has a recording error, and has to redo some of the files on it’s hard drive before it can continue recording.

Amazing work! I’ve been out there by the tracks and it is like a forest there in quite a few areas. Keep up the good work!
