    I enjoyed this hike although the trail was icy. Weather was good. Good intro to my first meetup and people were friendly.

    This was my first Meetup. I enjoyed the hike. It was good to get out and although the path was icy at spots, everyone made it with a little help from the group. Everyone I met was very friendly and I look forward to attending another Meetup.

    Need to add more miles. Maybe 2 miles, then 3, etc. But gradually.

    Tricky footing, but a nice late winter stroll!

    • Cincotti

      Another Round Bar and Grill, Emmets Ale House, Ballydoyle Irish Pub & Restaurant, Gatto's Italian Restaurant and Giordano's are all reasonably priced and good food. Just a couple of suggestions :)

    Sorry, can't make this one. Our family is taking my Mom out for her birthday lunch. I'm signed up for next week so will see you then!

    It turns out I'm dog sitting beginning today and won't be able to come to Maple Grove on Saturday. The sloppy weather is a factor anyway... I hope this will be repeated when the weather is a little nicer.

      Kaycee, The Cook & DuPage Trail Blazers Meetup organizes several hikes every month. INDY50+ lists one now and then. I suggest you (and other INDY50+ hikers) sign up with the C&D Trail Blazers Meetup -- http://www.meetup.com...­

    I'm afraid I'll have to miss the walk......a training is being offered for the Red Cross and I need to attend.

    I already have a luncheon engagement at 11 in Oak Brook, but glad to here about this grove. I thought I had walked most everything in DuPage, so this was a nice surprise, and it s a nice length. Maybe another time?

  • Donna L.

    I am also not good with the cold weather. Maybe in the summer...

  • Suzanne

    Sorry, sounds nice, but I can't stand the cold at all.

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.
