Last minute hiking notes,

Some people have dropped from the hike but we will be there for sure. The weather looks like we will most likely get some rain so rain gear is a must. You want to wear lightweight layers so that if the clothes get wet and heavy you won't be carrying heavy and wet clothes. The reason for the layering if you don't know is that your body may be one temperature at the beginning of the hike but after you get moving for an hour you will warm up and want to have the ability to take a layer or two off. Jeans and sweatshirts, (heavy or light), are not the best things to wear. Lightweight, wicking shirts or pants that will keep you warm enough are the best things to wear.

As always, bring plenty of water for the trail and some food to snack on. It is a good idea to bring a lunch too since this is a longer mileage than normal hike. Like Jenn wrote in her event description it is a mostly flat hike with some inclines and declines throughout.

We're not sure of a place to eat afterwards but we are open to suggestions. If we are soaked we may feel best about just getting home and skipping the lunch idea. We'll see what the group feels like doing and play it by ear.

If you won't make it please update your RSVP so that we aren't waiting for you. We will leave at the time posted or shortly after so if you get there a little late you may need to catch up with us. Please leave enough time to get there on time. My cell is[masked], Melissa's is[masked]-3843. Jenn posted her cell I believe.

We'll see you tomorrow,

Jenn, Melissa and Matt =)
