Hey ya’ll! Sam here, just checking in with yet another bio for the SCA webpage. I had thought, for some strange reason, that I would be taking a break this summer. I have just finished up a DRC crew, an eight-month program in southwest California, and assumed I would take a summer to myself, to go where I chose and do what I pleased. Turns out, I like to go to wherever the SCA sends me and do whatever they tell me to do. Come to think of it, had I not done SCA I probably would not have done much at all, so I am more than ecstatic to be here. This season ‘here’ is the northeast, specifically Finger Lakes in New York and Green Mountain in Vermont (both national forests). I will be assisting two fellow SCAers on a TrACS crew (a Trails Assessment and Condition Survey crew) and we will be hiking around the beautiful north woods and surveying trail. What more could one ask from a summer than an all expenses paid hiking trip? So, super stoked to be back on a crew and so excited for a few months in a nice, lush, green, and rainy environment after eight months of drying out in the desert!
