I worked on the Appalachian Trail throughout Tennessee for 10 years. I was certified as a sawyer by the Forest Service, but the certification has expired. My favorite activity is designing and building new trails. I have completed two new trail sections in Soleil at Laurel Canyon, and have started working on a third. I would like to see a trail connecting the Trace Trail to Donaldson's Furnace, as I am writing a biographical fiction book about the Donaldson family and their impact on the Canton area from 1830 to 1890.
