What Linda Chandler is saying about this Meetup Group

Good folks. I don't get to do much with them, though, because I live away from their meeting places, and farther away from their trail sections.

    Hi Linda,
    Thanks for coming along on our Barr Hammock hike this morning. I don't think I could have enjoyed a Saturday hike any better than this choice piece of backwoods Florida. Thanks for sharing the adventure. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your many photos of the mushrooms we saw!

    Welcome, Linda, now that you are now retired. If the idea of a subgroup devoted to all aspects of the outdoors interests you, perhaps you will come to our second meeting on October 18 to express your support. We need three or four leaders to have frequent trips.
