    Could we meet at the bottom of the hill at the corner of Arnold and London Ranch road to consolidate carpools and park passes? I would like to hop into a carpool with a pass if there is space available. Thank you for letting me know.

    I want to ask the group if we could ask individuals to please go very lightly (or not at all) on perfumes or colognes? There are at least a couple of us who are very scent sensitive and would enjoy taking in the natural fragrance of the flora and fauna instead.
