Washington, DCUSA 20002
February 24, 2012
I'd like to get back into hiking; I hiked every weekend through my twenties, but I've lived in DC 15 years, so it's been hard to find the opportunity to get away from the city to really hike.
For the most part, I've thoroughly enjoyed my hikes with this group. However, in about 50% of the hikes, someone shows up in fashionable street shoes, skinny jeans, without water, etc. for a "moderate" or "strenuous" 7 mile hike in the woods in 90 degree weather. They inevitable bail out (if a bailout is abvailable) or worse, drag down the whole hike because they can't keep up with a very moderate pace. There are also people who call the leader at or after the hike start time asking the leader to make 15-30 people wait for them because they are still 15-20 minutes away. Folks, remember that what you do affects every person in the hike--please don't be so inconsiderate. Read the information about the hike before you do anything else, and either plan accordingly or don't sign up.
