Vote Cumberland Island!
« on: August 14, 2015, 06:32:24 AM »
Fellas, I could use your help please...

Starting today Friday, August 14th, REI is launching the Every Trail Connects campaign, giving away $500,000 to a select group of nonprofit partners through a nationwide online voting campaign. The Georgia Conservancy?s Cumberland Island Trail Restoration Project was selected to participate in Every Trail Connects and needs your vote! Each vote equals $5 from REI and is FREE to do!

I am a member of the Georgia Conservancy and through Woodsmoke Camping Company (WCC), of which I co-own with Chuck Winchester, we support paddle trips and do volunteer work. I am asking you to support a great cause of which we are yet volunteering again. And all you have to do is vote online for free!

For more details on Cumberland Island and the project, please see HERE.



Thanks! Chris

Well  I paid our dues at REI this year so this is a given... LOL  Love the island and you and Chuck.

But I can't finger out how to make REI pay my 5 bucks.  Help  a brother out.

I grew up messing around on Cumberland.  The Ferguson family, that owned the majority of the island back then, were family friends.  Miss Lucy and the others were very kind to me, and let me use the 4X4 truck, the boats, and have complete run of the place.  Used to hunt deer and hogs, squirrel and birds, and fish constantly.
It was a real change when they sold out to the government.

Back then, David Rockefeller had a place on the Island.   He and I used to hunt and fish together.  Once, we climbed a tree in a heavy rain storm, just to do it.  There was whisky involved........... ...   :)
A number of other 'important' folks had places there, or came and went as guests.  It was always fun over on Cumberland.
