    I will be running late tomorrow for the meet at the brewery as I will be at another appt - should be there by 8:30. I am interested in the Mc Afee Knob trip as I recall you stated the Mathews Arm loop is 3700+ ft of elevation. I don't think I have the strength for that yet. Thank You so much

    Would anyone mind if I move this to Thursday? My wonderful job has me working a night shift that day. If you all can't make it then I'll just call off. Hehe

    Not sure I can attend depends on what days and how long this hike could be. I have all my own gear and my dog has his own pack as well but I'm a big out of shape so might not be as fast as everyone else. Not sure if that will be an issue.

    • Katie

      1 · April 10

  • Catorra

    Hey everyone backpacking season is coming and I sent an email out to everyone. Just encase you didn't get it, please email me with any questions regarding any backpacking trips. I have a map of our trip and our itinerary of the hike. I will pass those out before the hike and at this meet up. Plus if you need any gear please let me know ahead time so I can search my gear and see if I have extras.

    Catorra, is the purpose of this meeting to advise people what they need to purchase in order to backpack or to verify that we all already have what we need? I need to do some shopping, I'm just not sure whether I should hold off until after meeting with you.

    March 10

    • Catorra

      Yeah and to make sure everyone has what they need.

      March 10

    • Catorra

      We could condense some of the weight if we share tents, cooking supplies, food and other stuff.
