Food and dry socks

What is your ultimate hiking goal? (ex. hiking every mountain over 6,000 feet on the east coast, climbing everest, etc)

Let me think on it

Have you read the "Pages" section?

Not yet

Would you care to be a Trip Organizer?

No thank you ,more of a follower than a leader at this point

    Lani, if you want you could help me get my boat back into sailing condition she is a bit cluttered up since I have been working on the outside of her and neglected the inside for the last two years, if you want to. Myron...

    Ahoy, Dave here, newest Skipper/Event Organizer. Was recommended by the Organizers to introduce myself to the sailors "local" to Williamsburg area, make sailing opportunites more spontaneous (wind dependent!). Keeping my Hunter 240 on the York, and open to meeting crew and other yachtsmen with local knowledge of these Rivers and lower Chesapeake. Let me know your experience level, & expectations. Check my profile and give me a hail, if interested in getting underway on "Genesis" sometime soon.

    Lani, I usually ride around Chix Beach and occasionally First Landing State Park. I'm looking for new places to go, especially some off-road, trail type stuff. Mountain biking, but not hard core, at least not yet....
    The Group meets up at Hells Kitchen (HK) on the Bay on Lookout Road, and we go around the bike trails and side streets in the area. It's a nice ride.
