    Is it okay to bring cross country skis to this outing?

      Andy, thank you for the question. I do not have a problem with you bringing cross country skis. My only input is that your pace will likely be faster than the group, especially on the rolling hills of North Park Golf Course.

      On second thought, your pace will likely be slower than the group today, should you decide to wear skis. Sadly no snow, but the moon should give us enough light for a great Full Moon Hike! Hope we see you there!
