    Hi All,

    Just an update on the weather. It looks like the high for the peak is now going to be 39, with a wind chill of 32. Please make sure that you bring warm layers, hats, and gloves. It is supposed to be clear and sunny, so I'm hoping for another 8 island day.

    Do you really expect to be done, back at the B of A in SB, by 10:15, or when? 10:15 is the indicated ending time when I export this event from Meetup into my calendar.

      No there is no way the kike would be finished by that time I will check the MeetUp settings to see why it exports that way. If you give Jim or Tony a call they can probly give you an idea of when the hike might be over.

      Hi Liam, I have done this hike 6 times, and it's taken anywhere from 6 hours, 15 minutes to 7 hours, 26 minutes. It all depends on the speed of the group. We get back to the cars between 3:00 and 4:00.

    I'll be leading this hike on Saturday. Right now, it looks like it's going to be perfect hiking weather - sunny with a high of 50 at the peak - bring layers. This link will take you to the weather conditons for the trailhead: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=34.50491&lon=-119.37434, for the peak, check out this link: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=34.47698&lon=-119.44444
