    Can I post am item the group may have interest in ....
    A BI-continental walk to raise money for an orphanage I am involved with. What is unique about this event (4/27, 9AM, Shoreham Wading River HS) is that we run or walk the same time the Kenyans do 1/2 way around the world. I would post it not as an official meet-up but just something they may want to do.

    Hi Rollo- Thank you for the inclusion in this group. As mentioned, I am training physically to hike Mt katahdin in the summer of 2014 with my brother from Maine. I have not hiked much locally but learned that Nissaquague has some interesting trails. Are you planning any group meetups locally? I am reading some memoirs of hiking the AT and PCT that have me very inspired. Thank you, best to all in the new Year! Amy

    Greetings Rollo, I found your twitter invite to join the hike. I just want to extend an invitation to join (or at least visit) the Mt Whitney Hikers Association website and forums at www.whitneyzone­.com
    We have lots of Whitney-related­ info for your members to see.
    Best regards,

    Do you think I can do the presidential long shank? I Would not like to sign up and then not be able to make it. I notice that most people signed up are the very fast hikers. What are my chances with this group?
