Potluck lunch and hike Jerusalem Mill South

NOTE:  If I do not know you, your RSVP will be deleted before the event.  Join one of my hikes in the next month please if we have not already met.

I set the location as the Jerusalem Mill parking lot but we will NOT be meeting there. I'll email attendees the address a few days before but it is about 1 mile from that parking lot.

We'll meet up early and drop your potluck goodies at my house. Then we'll hike the south white trail for about 7 miles. Then we will enjoy some grub while overlooking a quiet spot in the river.

Post what you're bringing please so we don't end up with 50 bags of Doritos. I'll provide a grill for any meat that needs to be cooked.

We'll cross the covered bridge, the Iron Bridge and do the Kingsville county park loop. This trail is my favorite trail so far in the Big/Little Gunpowder parks in the Kingsville area.

The South trail has some rocky and root areas you need to scramble over. I recommend hiking boots rather than sneakers to protect those ankles!

Total distance will be 7 miles. There is no bail off area so please be able to do the full distance. Please plan to be able to keep up at 2.5 to 3 miles per hour pace for 3+ hours without significant breaks.

We will step off EXACTLY at 9:30. If you are late, txt me. I will post my number and the address the night before the hike.

This is a rain or shine event.

Dogs are welcome but they must be well behaved! I don't care if you let them off leash but you must and I mean MUST be able to control them verbally or with an e-collar. If they trip someone up or act out I will ask you to put them on leash. There are places on the South trail where a dog could knock someone down a hill into rocks or the water. Also, if they mess on my property you'll need to take care of it.

Dogs will not be allowed in the house.  There is a fenced area they can run around in though.

This is cross posted with the Cecil and Harford County Outdoor Enthusiast meetup group.

Oh, and I'd appreciate any cleanup help at the end. :)

    Thanks everyone for a fun day and great exercise. My dogs were definitely tired after that last hill climb on vinegar hill rd. Hope to see you all at the next one. Next time I'm thinking about heading north from the iron bridge and going up to Harford Rd. Should be about the same distance but a different mix of terrain. I'll post that date in a week or two.

    We're about a week out and it's time to start planning the menu. :)

    So far Danielle and Charmion have signed up for deserts. Everyone else please post what you plan to bring so we don't have 20 bags of Doritos.

    I'm going to close the RSVPs Friday morning and mail the address to the final list of attendees Friday evening. If your plans change please make sure to update your RSVP.

    Hello again everyone. I hate to be a jerk but the rules have been clearly posted at the top of the description. This event is at my home and if we have never hiked together I will be changing your RSVP to a no today. But if you have hiked with one of our other organizers and you still want to go, contact me, and I'll confirm with that organizer that you're cool and I'll change your RSVP. Otherwise I hope to see you at one of my many other hikes so you can come to one of the future potlucks. I'll be doing these once every month or two, even through the winter. I love me some winter hiking.

    Also for everyone else that is confirmed and hasn't posted a dish, please let me know what you are bringing. Right now we have two appetizers and two desserts. I am NOT providing beer like last time. But you are welcome to BYOB. I'll provide plates, flatware, cups and whatever else I already have in the house.

      I'll PM the address for the hike parking spot a day or two before the hike. I'm waiting until a day before to lock down the RSVP's and then send the detailed info to those I know are coming.

    Hi everyone. Just a quick reminder on my policy that if you have two no shows to my events you will be bumped out of a future event if there is a wait list. So please update your rsvp if you're plans change and you cannot attend. Thanks and hope to see you all soon!
