As a starting point for discussion:

How we accomplish this task most likely will change as we get experience. At this point, I expect the following process will serve for the first efforts.

1. We will pick a 1000-meter square grid to review.
2. Each known site will be studied at the FS office in Clarkesville by reviewing the site forms that were completed by Pearl and the archeological team. We want to be sure we find the correct site!
3. Depending on the size of the group, we will split up into teams to walk the entire 1000-meter square area. Each team will have some way to communicate with the other teams.
4. At each site, we will document what we have found, obtain a GPS reading, and take photographs.
5. Upon completion of the day’s efforts, we will update the GPS excel file.

We will report our progress on the blog site where we can provide the information that currently exists on any signage at the site, and we can use that blog to also determine if any existing signage should be modified, or if no signage exists, should one be placed on the site to provide protection.

If we do not complete that grid, we will return there until it is completed and then we will move to an adjacent grid on the topo map.

To begin, Pearl wants this to be the ‘tour’ so we only have one event a month, however, if there is a specific need to go to a particular set of sites at the request of families, we can schedule a “Pearls Tour” that month and have 2 events!

In reference to the news on TV last week, regarding Tennessee farmers legally selling 190 proof moonshine to help off-set the extremely high cost of gas these days-perhaps some of our ancestors would get a chuckle about this. It may reinforce their ideas about the "need" for this product. Had our ancestors been allowed to continue their "research" it's possible,theoretically,we could be paying less at the pump. This statement is not intended to minimize the impact of "white lightning" on our families and the decendents of the Lake Russell area.
