      Sorry for your bad luck today. Really wasn't much I could do to help - I know you had to stay with the car until AAA came. We missed you and hope to see you on another hike soon. We can laugh about your tire :/

    Great. The weather was perfect, the trail had varied terrain which made it very interesting. Bob and his assistants did a fabulous job. I am looking forward to my next hike.

    Bob and company fearlessly led us through the rocks, brambles and leaves to what was a terrific hike within Diamond Hill. Outstanding.

    Hi Bob,

    I can't make this one but would like to hike Diaimond Hill State Park with you sometime. It's on the west side of Route 114 - across the street from the ski hill area.

    November 18, 2013

    • Bob T.

      Thanks Rich. I've been wanting to check those trails out. I'll try to get a hike going there soon. Miss you on the hill, man.

      Looks like Diamond Hill brings a lot of people out.

      November 19, 2013

  • Bob T.

    RIHC hike leader, Helena, has agreed to co-lead this one with me, so I have put all the waitlisters on. Thank you Helena!!

    November 18, 2013

    • Crystal

      Yes, thank you, Helena, really glad to get off the waitlist!! Looking forward to hiking with this group.

    Do you think we will be done @ 1:30? I have a 2:00 appointment in West Warwick which I can be a little late for. I would like to be able to tell the person I am meeting @ how late I will be.

    November 18, 2013

    • Bob T.

      2:00 in W War is going to be awfully tight for you, Miriam. Difficult to say, but if the group is slow, it's possible we might not even get off the hike until 2:00.

    Why only 15?

    November 18, 2013

    • Bob T.

      15 is is about the limit I feel comfortable managing on a trail which is very narrow in some places and steep in others.

  • MJ (Mary J.

    What time do you think the coffee after is happening, perhaps I can meet you all there?

    November 18, 2013

    • Bob T.

      Sorry, MJ, but there are way too many variables to pinpoint the coffee time, esp w a large group on a new trail.

      November 18, 2013

  • MJ (Mary J.

    Wow this looks great but I have a class that morning. Have fun y’all.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
