    I was almost 10 minutes late, which was my bad. But, we were 25 minutes at the meetup point, 25 minutes at the Longview gas station, another 20 minutes at the trailhead, and 10 minutes into the hike there was another inexplicable 10 minute stop (I wasn't there)... . Just seems like lots of waiting around for most of us. Nice group, though!

    Sorry, wasn't sure if I'd be able to attend since I was on the waiting list until today and made other plans.

    Could we do 2 hiking groups during that day? There are as many people waiting than people attending?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
