    You guys had a pretty good turnout. Wish I was there.. Well, I'm on my way home from blazing saddle 75 bike ride and just seeing the photos is good enough for me. Good job, people

    I was waiting to see if I had a client or not for Saturday. It turns out I do so I won't be able to make it. I was hoping to meet everyone, especially so close to home. Hopefully I can make the next one.

      I can't for this one but maybe for next one.

  • Deborah

    Too many people for me.

    August 2, 2013

    Are there any water fountains, or is it 'primitive'? (8 miles in this muggy heat will require each of us to pack a lot of water.)

      Or even Gatorade or Emergen-C! Gonna lose a lot of electrolytes.

      August 1, 2013

    • Karen S

      Whole Foods has an excellent electrolyte replacement (similar to gatorade) in singles pkgs you mix with water.

    First time going on a hike. Anything I need to know? Can I just wear my tennis shoes?

    1 · July 30, 2013

    • David

      Sure, but not new shoes, as they will cause blisters (and will get dirty). Wear the old ones.

      August 1, 2013

    Hey Debbie,

    this would be my first outing with you guys...anything I need to know? bring other than the obvious (water, etc)? I am fairly new to long hikes...but love the outdoors and hiking...looking forward to meeting some of you. :)

    Hopefully will bring my pup!

    Hi fellow hikers, I'm excited about the amount of people that have responded and said they are coming. I do not swim in the lake, just let my dog go in and cool off.
    Guess it's up to you if you want to or not. Parking is somewhat limited so some may need to park along the road. Excited to meet fellow hikers...

    July 12, 2013

    So do many bring dogs? I have an Aussie who would love to swim in the lake!
