    Hi George, just an update, I did hike from 10 am to 1 pm, from 12 to 1 started to fall snow continuous, big flakes, but slow, ground had a layer, on top was windy but nothing to pull you or take your hat away, cold so there were areas of ice but just 1/8 inch thick that will brake with your weight, I decided to jog back down so I put on the micro spikes just to add more traction/ security, the roads were clean, salty and wet, street town and highway was clean, sky cloudy on the dark side, got home 2 hours later, which is almost normal time, I did use 4x4 traction for 2 min to get out of the parking area, and this is all folks, until new update every hour on the hour , channel 6, have a good day, jose

      Hi thank you, I appreciate it. I think I may just head to Valley Forge and do some hill hiking depending on the snow. Anyway I will keep track of your meetups, as I really like doing long hikes!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
