    Walked nearly 8 miles reaching an altitude of 593 ft. high. It can't be bad for an old fellow like me, to meet this challenge with a bunch of wonderful friends and capture several images in the bargain. All thanks to Trevor in organizing this wonderful event. Hope to see you all very soon. I promise I will not nick your hot tasty chips.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
