Tropical Nite after Hike, Farm Hay Ride, Bonfire, Dancing, Potluck, BYOB

  • September 20, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • Carriage Trade Farm

**** PLEASE READ, WE HAVE MADE MORE CHANGES ****

Doors/Barn open at 5:30.  You may start dropping off food for the potluck in the barn then.

The hike will begin about 6:15.  We will hike down the road to Brandywine Falls and then take the Gorge Trail for a total of about 2 miles.  This will insure we get back before dark.  If you want to hike more/further please bring a flash light. Dogs are welcome on hike only.

After the hike we will enjoy the potluck.  If you know what you are bringing please make a note  (if not, no worries).  Wade has electricity and chaffing pans if needed.  Crock pot meals, side dishes and desserts are welcome.  Also paper products are needed.  BYOB.

Next we will go for a hayride!!  Wade has opened this up to all attendees.  He may run a second hayride trip so everyone should get to ride!! If you are not on the hayride you can Wade's museum of antiques, it's really quite impressive!

After the hayride we will dance the night away under the stars (or barn/tent if raining) and enjoy the bonfire for drinks and snacks. 

If you have and questions, please let me know, Wendy[masked]-5898.

This meetup will begin on Carriage Trade Farm at 8050 Brandywine Road where we will meet in the parking lot which is located on the premises.  Please bring a hot or cold dish and a beverage of your choice which can be dropped off in the barn/museum before the hike.   

Carriage Trade is a 4th generation family farm displaying an eclectic collection of memorabilia in their barn/museum. The tractor drawn hayride will circle the 53 acres of scenic woods and meadows. Seating around the fire is provided. Restrooms are clean and lighted.

    Great way to end the summer. It had a little bit of everything to make the evening such a super fantastic evening and the rain held out for most of the evening. Thank you Wade for your hospitality.

      Gigi is available but I heard she is very expensive and demands French cuisine! LOL

      Actually due to her chihuahua roots she prefers Mexican cuisine. She is a little pricey, but well worth it.

    I still have not heard if any of this event is dog-friendly. Anyone responsible in the know, please let us dog owners know. It really would be appreciated. I have a little, adorable Shih Tzu Poodle named, Mr. Jack Charles Blessing; Jack says: "Woof, Woof," that he wants to come, too!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
