    It's the people who make it a great hike. Thank you everyone for being there on Wednesday night. I think we'll make this one a little bit longer about 6 miles. Bring your flashlights.

    Bob suggested that we try the new uncharted trail next time. I heard Jessie agreed to lead the team with the weedwacker or maybe old school machete.

    This is very last minute but I just joined your group ad noticed this hike. It's right in my backyard and I do it all the time so thought it was a perfect first event. This is my first meetup, looking forward to meeting everyone!
