    I think it went very well. We had a great turnout and we were able to cover a lot of information. The hour went by very quickly. Thank you everyone for coming out tonight. It was good to see familiar faces again and special meeting new members. We look forward to seeing all of you again! Thank you for your attentiveness, questions, and input. I hope you gained some helpful information, but if you still have questions, please let me know. Your feedback is welcome. Your participation in these and other events validates what we are all about at LLBean. Thanks again, Ron

    Hi Michelle. The clinic that you posted your question on is a good place to start. Hopefully you can make it out Tuesday evening. We also have some excellent beginner hikes. We will go over all of this in the clinic and any other questions that might come up. Thanks for the inquiry and we'll look forward to seeing you at the clinic! Ron

    Hi!! I live in Cherry Hill, and want to take up hiking. Any tips for a total beginner- where to go, equipment needed, type of boots, etc? Also, do you know of beginner hiking groups?

    Thanks for any input!! :-)
