    Simply put, this was a great day for hiking! It was really cold, it snowed 6-8 inches while we were hiking, and the frozen waterfalls were perfect some ice scrambling! Great company on the trails and beautiful scenery. Another memorable trip and the pictures really remind me why I love going out to these places every weekend. :)

    No matter how many times I venture out of the group & explore new ones, I always come back to HOAGIES. I always say & never get tired of recognizing what great, friendly, down to earth, easy going people this group attracts. I always feel like it's one big family. This weekend's trip to Mt. Greylock was one of Manny's epic trips that he organizes. He does such a great job at picking beautiful locations, coordinating various activities, & arranging cozy places to stay all while taking into account his group's needs. Manny, thank you so much for another memorable trip! #nychoagies

      Yes, well said Christine!! Thank you very much, Manny for all your hard work!! And thanks to Christine, Gregory, Jorge and Timothy for the fun cheerful energy on the trail!! This hike was beautiful in wintertime even with the fog blocking the views. In summertime, the views are quite awesome!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
