Slush puppy hike

This is for all ability levels as long as you can stand wet feet. We will be doing a loop or an out and back depending on conditions along Blue Mountain and the AT. Anyone can turn around at any point and follow their tracks back to the cars. Starting point is the game lands parking lot near Shartlesville, exit 23 on I-78. GPS[masked], [masked]

Suggested gear is a camera, good boots and microspikes or boot chains and a dandelion digger to unclog the ice from whatever is on your feet. Home brew afterward at our house for anyone interested.

Directions: I-78 to exit 23. Turn towards Loves and bear left when the road goes right. Go to the end of the road and look for a yellow JEEP.

    I was on trail this evening. Conditions are good, snow is compact. We will be aiming to do a loop using the service roads and Sand Spring Trail. Microspikes or chains and hiking poles are suggested. Distance is estimated to be 6 miles at 2 miles/hour.

      Three hours or so. Walking has been slow due to the snow. There is a nice loop of service roads and Sand Spring I want to do, which is @ 6 miles. However, we may be on game and service roads which we can go as far as we want. We have a bottle of Ricardi 1957 for you. I had some last night. It has mellowed nicely.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
