So you've heard great stories about the madness on Burdell (including that crazy discussion on the creek), but still haven't gotten over there? Been meaning to get there, but keep forgetting the vino? Say no more - here's your opportunity, not just to scope it out, but to do it w/ the merry madcappers in this grp!
Well then, that settles it - Burdell it is. We'll hike, we'll picnic/potluck, we'll vino, we'll relax, we'll chat, we'll enjoy.
All the usual suspects will be there, and all the usual rules apply.
Rule #1 Chill, Rule #2 Have Fun, Rule #3 Pass The Vino!
Need I say more?
Wondering where the vino fields are in Novato? Well, that's easy. The Usual Suspects will be bringing the vino into the fields and top of Mt Burdell for a fun filled afternoon of socalising in the sun!
This will be about a 5-6 mile hike w/ about a 250' elevation gain w/ plenty of time to kick back in the fields and meadows. The rating is moderate to strenuous depending on your condition. The views make every step worthwhile.
What to Bring:
Vino and cups
Good Hiking Boots/shoes
Layered clothing, sunscreen and hat
Snacks/vino and cups
FOOD, and more food (cut up sandwiches, wraps, meats/cheeses/sourdough/crackers, salads, dried fruit/nuts, chips, dips, deserts, use your imagination.)
At least 1 liter of water (2 is better) Chill overnight then top w/ ice in the a.m.
Anything else you want to drink (ice tea, juice, beer, etc.)
$5 activity fee
Your sense of humour is an absolute must!
