The Birthday/Hinckley Hike

We are always unsure of the weather here in NEO -- is it raining yet? But we have more important things to do, like celebrate birthdays and kick mud off our boots.

Meet us at Hinckley Lake for a brief winter hike and some fresh air. We will caravan for some food and libation afterward, and celebrate with other 02 birthday bashers. If you had a birthday this month, please join us.

If you just like to celebrate birthdays, we'd love to have you, too!

If you can't make the 4 p.m. hike, look for updated comments on the after-hike location. Hope to see you!

    Had a good time on the hike, and at the Main St. Cafe, afterwards. It was good to meet such a nice group of people.

    Fun hike! Loved Maria's little excursions. Can't beat celebrating a birthday with Reese's cups, popcorn and cinnamon whiskey!

    I just got back from a pre-hike at Hinckley ... the Buckeye Trail is a little sloshy in places, but totally do-able for tomorrow. The Lake Ledge Loop is iced over and treacherous, so we will not be taking that trail. I have a 90-minute hike planned, and from there, we can hike any part of the all-purpose trail for folks who want to stay longer.

    Suggested: Gaiters if ya got 'em, waterproof boots, and hiking poles if you want some added stability. Your boots will not stay dry on this hike, so be prepared for that.

    Here's a nice view you will see from our hike along the Buckeye Trail. There was no wind whatsoever, so let's hope for another pretty day:
