   If your 11/11 wish is to do trail maintenance, congratulations! We're going to drive around cutting a few larger blowdowns on the Appalachian Trail with our 2-person crosscut saws.

A crosscut saw is a long, typically 2-person saw with handles on either end that has been used for generations. Two experienced sawyers can almost match a chainsaw for speed and their use requires at least one end of the saw to be manned by a certified sawyer. Not many people have the opportunity to use these effective (and fun) tools, so we're opening this worktrip up to anyone who wants to come try one out.
