Snowshoe or Winter Walk through Vaughn Woods....

Days are getting longer and we can almost feel spring in the air (or we can try to imagine it! ..). Let's explore Hobbit Land in the snowy season. Meet at 1 pm, walk in the woods then those who want to can warm up at the Liberal Cup or another local watering hole. It will be between the lunch and dinner shifts therefore avoiding the crowds. Hope to see you!

    Sorry I couldn't un-RSVP but computer was uncooperative......and I'm not overly computer literate.

      It's OK Barbara..I knew that might happen so we didn't wait long. Maybe next time..it was a great day to be out!

    It was great. The weather was positively balmy with no need for hats and gloves..I wore only 2 vests with a long sleeved shirt. It was really nice to meet the 5 new people..hope they come again! After the walk (3 people snowshoeing) most of us went to the Liberal Cup for a late lunch or desert..or in Nicky's case a side order of fries! Looking forward to more walks like this...Spring is definitely just around the corner!

    Yeah, a meetup I can make! I just need to find some decent snow boots. I actually bought a pair a while back but had to return them because they were killing my feet. I'll be there though even if I have to wear my old ones. See ya!

    • Ann R.

      yeah Nicky!

    We think we can go! My husband and I are back in Maine and the only thing stopping us is if we have to shoot down to New Hampshire - we are awaiting our second grandchild. Will bring our snowshoes. Looking forward to meeting you.

    February 20, 2014

    • Ann R.

      Looking forward to meeting you both! Snowshoes are a good idea..it will be warm and soft snow..

    I guess I cant make it during afternoon, have a family birthday party at 12:30 for a couple of hours. Have fun!

    I'll be bringing two guests, Jeff Frankel and Carol Eckert. Jeff recently retired as Staff Attorney for the Maine Dept. of Professional & Financial Regulation, Office of Professional & Occupational Regulation; Carol is semi-retired from Sheepscott Valley Medical Center, where she was an Ob/Gyn. They have two adult children who are launching their own successful careers.

    I won't be participating in the Liberal Cup Apres-Snowshoe gathering, because I'll have to save room for the fare at the Elks' Dance that evening.

      have fun..you're hands are going to be sore! I want to see the finished product..

      February 17, 2014

  • Barbara D.

    Looking forward to being there.....especially if it is as beautiful as forecast! If it's a blizzard or zero degrees, I will probably be a "no show"....:)

    • Ann R.

      Looking forward to meeting you! It is easy to change your RSVP to "no" if you decided later. But we usually wait a few minutes and if people don't show we start walking..

  • Patt Chen & Tom C.

    Hi Ann- thanks for all of the organizing you continue to do! It's been a bit busy on our end but we hope to catch up with all of you sometime soon. There is a hike we go on from time to time in the Camden Hills stare park called the Slope trail. It's similar to the road we walked up to get to bald Rock in Lincolnville. If you continue on this slope trail, it apparently connects on to that trail we were on in Lincolnville. So point to point, it's around 4 and 1/2 miles. Might be something we could do in the future. I can send you a link. Hope all is well!

      Hi Patt..Please do send the link..always looking for new ideas. That sounds like a great one for when the snow is gone or going..

    Shucks, I wish this plan was for today instead of next weekend. Can't join next weekend.

    February 15, 2014

    • Lisa

      Nice meeting you also! It was quite a little workout, and a pretty walk.

      February 15, 2014

    • Lisa

      I won't be able to walk next weekend, but will keep an eye open for some other hikes, snowshoe,ski events from this group. Thanks :)

    I was thinking this was for today. I think I can make it next weekend, I will post sooner to the date. I have been wanting to go into the Vaughn woods this winter.

    1 · February 15, 2014

    • Ann R.

      Yay Susan. ..It'll be good to see you! 3 of us went today and it was great. It was a real workout because we didn't wear snowshoes and the snow was soft. Next time I will wear them..do you have any?

      February 15, 2014

  • Lisa

    awesome - see you soon.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
