    Aren't you glad it's raining now as opposed to 5km into our walk? ;-)

      Kind of funny to be texting to each other from our cars through this site! Lol

      We are within 5 feet of each other but the rain is keeping us from opening the window to talk, lol

    Better it rain now than after we started 10 min into it. At least we are still dry.

      Hi Mietka, you should remove yourself from the list so that the next one on the waiting list can get the spot

    With this being a urban walk vs mtn walk, could the group size be larger than 12 so as to include the wait list? I doubt we will lose anyone on this walk :-))

      Hi Dee, Unfortunately, a group of 12 is the largest I can manage. Another Slow & Steady organizer is planning to lead urban hikes so there should be more hikes to choose from soon.

      Thank you Paul. No worries .It did not hurt to ask. I will see you next outing then :-)

    Have removed myself from the event. Hopefully someone from the wait list can fill in.

    Is anyone headed there from NW or downtown and might be able to give me a ride? I take transit and google map says it'll take me 1.5 hours to get there. Just wondering.

      Hi Ramya,

      I live in the NW so if you give me your co-ordinates, I can pick you up on my way to Mallard Point.

    Darn, work interferes again! I can hardly wait until it slows down at work so that I can participate in some of these great activities. Have fun on the hike!

    I am coming from Toronto for the week and is looking for an evening activity in Calgary. I am an avid hiker and wondering if I can tag along for the hike this Wednesday 13th. Would you be so kind to let me know so I can pack a Kamel pack and a pair of hiking shoes. Looking forward to see the beauty in Calgary.

      Hi Raymond,

      I sympathize since you're visiting from out of town but it wouldn't be fair to the people on the waiting list to let you jump the queue. Some of the other meetup hiking clubs have urban hikes as well.

      August 11, 2014

  • Lesa

    Sorry, needed to cancel not feeling well. See you on the next urban hike.

    August 11, 2014

  • Frances

    I'm going to have to cancel. I thought the hike was for this week. I will be away next week.

      Bon Voyage.

      Although my mom did see "we," which I assume means she and I, I'd like to say that I'll miss seeing you. Enjoy your trip! We'll see you soon. :)
