    This was a great hike and an amazing day! Totally worth a little pain with my still-recovering broken toe and a killer blister. Thanks for the naproxen, Bijal! You're a lifesaver!

    Great photos, folks! It looks like you had a good hike with a lot of good people.

    People, thank you so very much for joining the longer version of Delaware Water Gap hike. The weather could not have been more perfect for a long and strenuous hike. We did 16.2 miles and 2426 feet of total up elevation at a moving speed of 2.9/mph, and covered all the bases on Jersey side. We had 19 participants on the hike. The hike was strenuous; I remember giving naproxen to several people! Wendy and Lehigh Anne hope you both are feeling better with the ankle and the toe respectively. Everyone did great and completed the entire hike! We had 14 people at Gem and Keystone Brewpub. Despite slightly cooler temperatures, it was nice to seat on a patio for dinner. Paula, thank you so very much for sweeping. See you all on a future hike. - Bijal

    Well, even though I had to miss this event, I did run my first 5K ever...that was timed. I made it in 25 mins. I was impressed that I ran the entire course. I got 4th place out of 42 runners and received a trophy.

    Thanks, Bijal. Can't wait to do another - need to get my 100 miles in before end of year. I want that HAT! (or coffee mug will do just fine too).

    1 · September 28, 2013

    • Jason-Michael

      I think I got my 100 miles in this year, all on Bijal's hikes. I'll probably doing a few more in autumn just for good measure. :o)

      September 29, 2013

    • Denis M.

      Think I'm around 70 assuming I wrote my name legibly on the sign in sheet. I should be good by end of year.

    September 28, 2013

  • Jean B.

    I am sorry but I got the confirmation message too late that a slot had opened up. i hope to be able to go next time. I hope someone else can still take the slot.

  • Lainy M.

    Sorry, Bijal... I don't think I'll be able to make it on Saturday. I just had some last minute things pop up today :( Thanks for including me and I look forward to the next one! Have fun everyone!

    People,

    As of now the weather is expected to be great on Saturday. I agree with comments Bob made below. Please use the Visitor Center Lot if Dunnfield Parking is full. Allow some extra time to walk over to Dunnfield Parking from the Visitor Center Parking. Please arrange any carpool if you need to. Please update your RSVP if your plans have changed. See you all on Saturday

  • Raymond (Rand) S.

    Bijal...are you hiking with extra weight like last year's DWG hike?

    September 24, 2013

    • Bijal

      Ray,

      That would depend on the size and make up of the group. If we have a very strong group, then I will carry my full load, otherwise I drop about 20 lbs. See you Saturday. - Bijal

      September 24, 2013

  • Wendy

    Anyone else interested in carpooling from Plymouth Meeting Mall - Macy's lower level lot at 8:00? Have Amy L, Bob S and Sue Q so far. Room for 2 more.

    September 24, 2013

    • Bob S

      September 24, 2013

  • Lainy M.

    Is this going to be a slower paced hike like Ricketts Glen or more strenuous and quicker pace?

    September 22, 2013

    • Bijal

      Faster, quicker, more intense!

      Woot! Woot!

    People, I am looking forward this long and scenic hike on Saturday. As of now, the weather is expected to be beautiful and sunny on Saturday. Can you please, please, update your RSVP if your plans have changed? Please look at the distance you would need to travel the morning of the hike. Stay signed into either the main list or the waitlist only if you are truly committed. Please do not wait till last three/four days. That way I can plan better for the hike. Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday. - Bijal

  • Bob

    I did this hike last Saturday adding a 5 mile extension to it for a 20 mile day. It is a great hike. For your info if it is a nice day the parking may be full early. Last Sat. it was full by 9am. Enjoy the hike!

    September 17, 2013

    • Seth G (.

      Are there any other options if the lot is full?

      September 19, 2013

    • Bob

      There is a lot just before it as you get off the ramp from route 80, a grass field after it along route 80, and probably the best option the visitors center on the other side of 80. I was going to join you but since I just did this I'll be backpacking that weekend instead. Enjoy the hike!

      September 19, 2013
