  • Difficulty Rating: 1-2 out of 5 - few short hills, usually paved trails, 2-3 miles.  OTOH if cold, may make it 3 out of 5.

    A TED talk about death.  Maybe an UnDead TED Talk Trek?

    TED Talk about death

    If pressed for time, start watching around 7:00 onward, but as uncomfortable as this talk may be, recommend the whole thing.

    Bring your flashlights because it will be dark the whole way, though typically there is enough ambient light that flashlights are little needed.

    Check back an hour before the walk, if possible, to see if the walk is still on. 

    Note that we leave promptly at 5 minutes after the specified start time.

    Happy Feet!

    I think we won't have to talk about death, as we will be dead walking in this weather! I was game until I came down with a cold last night :( . . .hard enough getting up out of bed to get more water...

    I walk around this lake with my dog regularly anyhow since moving here last month. I'm happy to find your group!
    If the weather were normal, I'd love to join you but will pass this time. Beware of frostbite!

    Dress very warmly my fellow meetup members for the Tuesday evening (1/7) walk; it should be about 10 degrees air temperature.
    If I am able to leave work early, I will join you, but don't count on me Alan/Eric.

      Celeste has one scheduled for Wed at Fair Oaks. If the weather stays as cold as forecast, I'll likely cancel rather than find out there are stealthy icy spots.

      I know there is one scheduled for WED. It is where I got the idea. Anyway, if you cancel, it is very understandable due to the cold weather if moving indoors is not an option. Since you make the effort to run the TUE walk, I'll gladly await your call.
