Special February "Winter" Monthly Meet

  • Feb 15, 2014 · 4:30 PM
  • REI

This is the annual joint get-together with backpackers who are also members of and  Dinner at Ruby Tuesday at 4:30 and presentation at REI next door at 6:30.

Our speakers this year will be 'Hacksaw' and 'Scooter,' a married couple from Nashville, who thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail southbound.  They started during the summer of 2012 and finished in January 2013 and have some interesting stories to tell, along with photos to show.

Donna Dean, aka 'Stambler,' also an AT thru-hiker, has volunteered to lead a hike at Radnor Lake State Natural Area.  If you'd like to join her, be in the Visitors Center parking lot off Granny White Pike no later than 2:00.  Look for Stambler in a bright orange shirt.

    hey i can be at radnor our walden of the south at 2 to lead the double ridge and maybe the additional short historical trail to the old pumphouse. Come to the entrance off Granny White NOT the entrance off Franklin Pike. On various maps it looks like you can come to the Franklin Pike entrance and drive to the Granny White entrance but you can not. The road is closed between the two and is open only for hiking. I'll wait in the Granny White Parking Lot until 2:10 lets say in a bright orange shirt. donna
