Beautiful Fall Hike on SUNDAY! :) We can eat afterwards, as well.

 

Hi guys,

Let's return to the beautiful C&O Canal, and also hike the Billy Goat Trail. :)

WE MEET AT GROSVENOR METRO at 1:30 PM (INSIDE, where you exit with your farecard). PLEASE TRY TO BE ON TIME, as we are already started the hike late, and it gets dark early. THANKS. :) PLEASE BE ON TIME, at 1:30 PM. We SHOULDN'T leave much later, as it gets dark earlier now with the seasons changing. If we leave later, then we run the risk of it getting too dark for you to complete the hike. We ALSO want to be able to visit the beautiful Great Falls! We would do that after the hike. It's easy to drive to the Falls from there, and it's a 2 minute drive or so! Each car pays 5 bux to enter that part (we can split it with the drivers). :)

We can ALSO go to the beautiful Falls, AND have dinner together, if people want. :)

I would wear really good shoes for hiking!!!! We will be going up mountains (and they are ROCKY at times...It is a GOOD place for beginners, but it ALSO has some STEEP and rocky, tricky places, so you want to have good shoes. :)).

ALSO, I would bring *WATER,* so that you can drink some if you need..IF ANYONE doesn't want to complete the whole hike, they can STILL walk with ME along the beautiful canal!!!! Let me know when we are there! :)

AND, when we are in the major hiking part, you can easily stay warm, it won't be cold for that part, from the exercise..THEREFORE, I would bring layers, so that you can take off a layer if need to...:) LATER in the day it might get colder...SO, if you have a jacket then that's good, and you can ALSO keep it in your car for later, for if you see it is too warm for it...

PLEASE take my # with you:[masked]-5875.

Our group has been there a few times and it's ALWAYS BEEN SO wonderful!!!

See you soon,

Noonie

    Yes, thank you Saulo. I really appreciate your pix and I'm so glad you had a good time. I hope you guys like my pix as well (even though mine were taken with the phone. :)) I got a good one of you Saulo, crossing the log over the water. :) I also have a good one of Monica, bending under another log, to get to the other side...

    The weather was AWESOME!! I didn't need a coat and could even take a layer off! Pal even hiked in a T-Shirt!! :) It wasn't cold out EVEN when it got dark..People came on time (we only waited a quick 15 min. and then left)! Thank you guys for making the organizing relaxing with little to no stress. :)

    Thank you Sergio! Glad you loved it! I just uploaded photos from my new iPhone...Sorry that I couldn't use my camera, due to the SD not being there...I just uploaded a ton though, anyway. :) Enjoy!! Thank you Karlla, for the fast upload of yours, and I am so glad you had fun!!! Great photos you took!

    Best meetup ever!

    Oh, and looks like we definitely will have enough drivers. :) So some might want to leave their cars at Grosvenor. :) We have 13 signed up now. I went to this place with 4 people and we had SO MUCH fun! So 13 is a fine number!!! I will do as much of the mountains that I can climb, until I switch to the canal..At that point, our fearless leader Pal will lead you all the way, and I'll still be at the place, nearby you (that is if it doesn't rain you will go all the way.). :) The place we will drive to from the metro is the parking lots across from: 10801 MacArthur Blvd, Potomac, MD 20854.
    See you soon, at the metro. My # again is:[masked]

    November 17, 2013

  • Noonie

    See you guys soon! Pal is going to lead the hike all the way. Thanks Pal! If anyone wants to walk with me along the gorgeous canal (see the pic on this site, it's there), then we can do that while the others hike up the mountains...It is 4:45 am and I am still awake, as I have so much to do for work..So, I probably will be along the canal for most of it..:) We'll have so much fun, it's really pretty there..Hopefully it won't ever rain...If it will, we can go to a restaurant...OK, see you soon! PLEASE be on time...Noonie

    I'm still a bit under the weather. ..

    Remember, we are CARPOOLING from Grosvenor Metro. So, if you are driving then please note that you may be asked to be one of the drivers who are taking members to the place (I will give you all directions, and we can follow each other). If there's a reason you can't be a driver, it's ok as we'll probably be able to work something out. It is FREE to leave the car at Grosvenor metro, and all we need are 2-4 cars (depending on if we have no shows). If I can fix something in my car by tomorrow, then I will be one of the drivers...The address of where we are driving to from Grosvenor are the parking lots across from the following place: 10801 MacArthur Blvd, Potomac, MD 20854. The fewer the cars, the better, so that it will be easier to find spots available. :)

    The chance of rain went down to 30% where we will be. :) It was 40% before, and it would have started at 3. Hey, it's great that the chance went down, and maybe it will keep going down. :) I'm not going to wear heavy clothes for the hiking/climbing part, as we can get warm that way. However, I will have layers, just in case it gets cold later. :) The weather is supposed to be in the 60's, so that is a comfortable warm for when we exercise. :) I like to be prepared, so that's why I will have a jacket in my car, and also clothes to put over for if it gets cold later...If I feel it might rain, then I'll tie a light rain protective coat to my waist. :) See you soon.

    We meet INSIDE Grosvenor metro, at the place where you exit with your farecard. PLEASE BE ON TIME, at 1:30 PM. We SHOULDN'T leave much later, as it gets dark earlier now with the seasons changing. If we leave later, then we run the risk of it getting too dark for you to complete the hike.
    We ALSO want to be able to visit the beautiful Great Falls! We would do that after the hike. It's easy to drive to the Falls from there, and it's a 2 minute drive or so! Each car pays 5 bux to enter that part (we can split it with the drivers). :) See you all soon! I will be at work 12, so I won't be online much tomorrow. Today I have more time to be online..

    Hi, guys! The forecast changed for tomorrow. At the START of it, it shouldn't rain (and PLEASE be there ON TIME. no later than 1:30! VERY important). HOWEVER, there are a few rain showers in the forecast, starting at 3 PM. We are STILL going as this was a similar forecast for our Georgetown Waterfront meetup, but we STILL had fun there and were able to be outside. The rain didn't start that day till when we were about to leave. IF the showers in tomorrow's forecast affect your RSVP, then please change your RSVP to let us know. We will be repeating this hike another time as well. If we see that we are rained on tomorrow, then we will head to a restaurant....We will hope for the best though, as we can't predict what will happen and perhaps the rain will start even later than predicted. Hope so!

    November 16, 2013

    • Sergio

      I don't think it will be bad at all. Probability of rain is like 20% and still we're going to have nice temperatures between 15°C and 18°C

      November 16, 2013

    • Noonie

      Thanks, Sergio. The probably of rain when I checked just now is actually "40%," but I agree with you that it probably won't be bad at all. :)

  • Noonie

    Matt, thanks for letting us know that Sunday works for you and that Saturday doesn't. So far I know that either Sunday or Saturday day works for Felipe, Monica, Pal and his guest(probably his guest is Mohan). I will try to get more answers from people soon, so that I can decide soon on what to do. I might have to do Sunday, due to work prep for Sunday school...I will let you guys know as soon as possible. Thanks!

    November 15, 2013

    • Saulo

      Sunday is better, Saturday is a little tight for me, but I can try to go on time

      November 15, 2013

    • Noonie

      Thanks for letting us know, Saulo. We are going Sunday, not Saturday.

      November 15, 2013

  • Noonie

    I am sorry Miguel and Wahida, I had to change it to Sunday. Don't worry, we'll likely repeat this hike in the spring time!

    November 15, 2013

  • Noonie

    GUYS! The weather is supposed to be up to 65 degrees on Sunday! Would you be ok if we switched to Sunday? If NOT, I will certainly keep it for Saturday, as planned..

    November 14, 2013

    • Matt

      Sunday would work for me I can't do Saturday

      1 · November 15, 2013

  • Noonie

    I am trying to keep it for Saturday. Thanks. Will let you guys know soon.

    November 14, 2013

  • Noonie

    Wahida, thanks for your input..I heard from others that they can do Sunday, and I have so much to prepare for Sunday school that I might have to change for Sunday. It may be too hard for me to have two meetups back to back and I might need time on Saturday to plan for my Sunday job. I will let you guys know as soon as I decide. I will try to keep Saturday though. I promise to let you guys know soon...

    We hope you can attend this meetup Hamad, see you soon maybe.

    November 13, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hamad, I don't understand what you mean about "rules"? It's like any other meetup. If you want to go then you sign up if there's room (which there is for this fall hike meetup). Then, you just read the emails to see when we meet and where, etc.!

    November 12, 2013

  • Hamad

    I'm new, and do not know the rules.

    November 12, 2013

  • Noonie

    This is an amazing place!! :) I will post up pictures of it later. :) We're going to have so much fun!
