Can Opener? Pickmatic?.. (Hello, Trail Life)..Time for Grub.

Nine days spent in the Beaverhead National Forest backcountry provided an appreciation for Montana’s natural beauty, a can opener’s work, the endeavors of mountain yearning legs, and the existence of baby wipes (need not say more). As our crew of six spent our first ever hitch together, we discovered the fun, semi-sarcastic dynamic of our group, the perfect time to wake up to get water boiling, how to swing tools in a way that is in accordance with your back muscles, and who on the crew cares about hiding their farts, and who does not.

Can you imagine what Beavers do when building a dam? We did the exact opposite.

Bridges out! Hunting season had just begun and there were lots of people on horseback in the area.

September found us 3,000 feet down in a canyon in Wyoming. We’d already been there for six days and we’d be there for two more. After enthusiastically ripping apart an old bridge on our first day, putting it back together proved to be a challenge.

You’ve heard of the Ten Essentials for Wilderness Survival. The traditional illumination, hydration, etc. However, if you’re considering joining MCC there are a few more things you might not be able to live without.

Our crew of Reptoids travelled to the Gallatin National Forest, just outside of West Yellowstone to do drain work on the CDT. We also constructed a turnpike there. Next, our crew worked for the BLM in southwest Montana and brushed out a trail and cleared large rocks from the trail. Finally, we did 2 hitches in the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming. There, we constructed 3 bridges, brushed four miles of trail, cleared a log jam, and installed 17 drains on a social trail often utilized by horse packers.

Lolo South Fork Take II

This hitch was the second consecutive adventure into the Lolo South Fork Trail. While the previous hitch focused on bridge-building, this hitch hinged on cross-cutting some formidable fallen trees.


Our Very First Wilderness Experience

  • August 28, 2019
  • Posted by Brenna McGown

It was our first hitch in which we were able to go into the Wilderness (with a capital W). It was also the hitch where we saw the most people and mules by far. It may have not felt like a typical ‘wilderness’ experience (no crosscutting sadly) but it was a great time overall and dare we say, one of those ‘best hitches ever?’
