Olivine trip on April 30th.

Meet up at Target at 7 am leaving promptly at 7:30. We will travel to the Burger King in Sedrowoolley and get a quick break before heady the rest of the way to meet up with the owner of the mine.  The total travel time given is 3hrs. It will take 1.5 hrs to get to Sedrowooly and approximately another 1/2 hr to meet up with Corky (owner) and another 15-30 minutes to get to the mine. 3hrs is to give enough time for break and any traffic delays.  We are scheduled to meet up at 10 am with Corkey at an Olivine gravel pile on Miskito Lk. Rd.

15 people maximum (second trip is scheduled for those not able to attend) Sign up required here.

Wear good shoes, long pants, good gloves, layer for cold mountain air and sunscreen.
Also bring a lunch and plenty of water.
