Taking a Look Back - '05 and '06

Team ToYer - Ted and Christine

I would have taken a look farther back than 2005 but that is when I came on the scene and thus is all I know about. Recently, Ted Wilson - beloved bearded trail crew leader - announced that he is hanging up his Pulaski. Rocky Top 2005 and Rocky Top 2006 were lead by 'Team ToYer' - the Ted and Christine duo. So in my reminiscing here are a few classic photos.....

Thru Wind, Rain and Snow

Homo-Budro-Tibido Buddies..
Ted's Winter Wonderland...

Finally Amir Fights Back

Crew Leading At-A-Glance

Safety. Safety. Safety.

Some "building bridges".. we built Walls

Some tasks take many, others just take Ted!

Life in the Smokies Before Bear Cables...

Swing that Volunteer Looks On

Is that....It Couldn't Be... It Is....Ted on a Horse!!
