My first time on this meetup and I too, would like to make this a tradition. Thanks to the generosity of the leaders and hikers, I was able to hike this incredibly beautiful route with them today. It was brisk, both temperature as well as pace. Good people and good conversation. Thanks again!

Good Morning Dayton Hikers!
We hope your Thanksgiving Day was the best ever... Now its time to get our hike on!
The rain was moved through our hike area overnight. It was not a heavy rain and I do not expect the trails to be overly muddy. However, wear appropriate footwear in the chance we encounter a moist section. An extra pair of socks and gaiters would be a great idea too!
I expect sunny skys at the start of our hike and the temparatures should rise until noon and then begin to fall as the clouds begin to creep in. Be prepared for the swing in temparature by dressing in layers. A small daypack will be ideal to carry extra clothing, snack, lunch, water and maybe an apple or two for the horses we see.
We will leave promptly at 10 AM, however if you are running a few minutes behind, please call me and we will wait for you. Check your Meetup.com email for contact information. I looking forward to seeing my well fed hikers this morning :0)

If you are able to act as a shuttle driver, please reply to this thread or call me (if you know my number). Shuttle drivers will transport all hikers between the start and ending locations of this hike. This hike is not a loop and we will need to work together to make this happen. Shuttle drivers should arrive in advance of start time. I will message those that offer to help with details. Thanks everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!
