    It is hard to make a call on a hike like this but it appears as though the rain may be heavy in the morning. I'm afraid I have to cancel due to the weather. I will repeat this hike in the future. I really hope to meet many of you then and enjoy your company under better skies. Michael

    I too wonder what it would take to call off the walk as Foster is a long ways from my house. A little rain wouldn't hurt.....

    Yey.....I'm confirmed! I'll see you guys tomorrow morning at 9:30. Do you guys walk in the rain? I'm not a sissy but I don't want to make the trip if you don't.

    Does the club have a policy on dogs? Since this is wide open roads, I'm wondering if dogs on leash would be allowed. (If I get off the waiting list ...)

      Hi Laurie, the clubs policy on dogs is that they are generally not allowed on hikes. This meetup was created to give adults a chance to meet and enjoy a common interest and share in the enjoyment of the outdoors and each others company without the distraction of children and dogs.

    Although I can't make this hike, many of this group's events look great. I don't have a car and am wondering if anyone drives from Providence (near the East Side) and would be willing to offer a ride to future hikes?

    I am happy you are doing level ones
    So many hikes are at higher levels it is hard to get started
    And being on the wait list must mean many others want level one hikes

    This is the first time I have signed up for a hike with this group. I notice that I am on a waitlist......does this mean that the hike is already at full capacity? Can someone please explain. Thank you.
