    Thank you Michael, for a wonderful amazing day, hiking Park Slope and Brooklyn Botanic Garden(BBG). BBG covered with snow was magnificent, and the BBG Conservancy was excellent. I had a good time, great hike leader, great group of hikers, and I got good exercise.

    Hi are you still planning on doing this walk tomorrow? We are supposed to get snow in the early afternoon. I am just checking so I can make alternate plans if the meetup will be cancelled.

    Too early to get there from lower Westchester. Brooklyn is a schlep, which may be why all the really good stuff is there.

    I could probably make it at lunchtime. Do you plan to keep going after lunch? Don't know how long your meetups usually go. And do you have a specific stop planned for lunch where I can come meet you?
