    After picking up members from our meeting place, we will also pick up people from Shingal stop (around 7:30am) which is on our way to Damyang. This may be a convenient pick-up point for those from Suwon, Osan, or Pyeongtaek. Those who want to be picked up from here should let me know.

    Hello, I'm interested in joining the group on this trip, but don't want to ride the bus to and from Damyang as I'm from Daejeon and would prefer to take intercity buses from there. Is that possible? Would I be able to hop onto the reserved bus to go to Gancheonsan?
