    Jacquie - thnaks again for leading the hike today. IT was a bit of a tough slog, but a good work out. And we are "pathfinders" after all! The weather was lovely - mild & no wind - & the Fort Whyte trail most enjoyable.

    Thanks to all 30 intrepid walkers. Today's hike was tough slogging along McGillivary, but Fort Whyte was plowed and ready for us to enjoy.

    I would like to attend your travelogue but am not a paid member. Could this be considered as part of the "try one or two events for free" trial run offer?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
