    Good hike on the H-x trails. Always happy to meet new hikers and see some that we don't see every week. Only slight downside is you are never really away from city views. But good trails nevertheless for a change of pace.

    Hi folks, we've got a big crowd joining us for this hike. Try to arrive a little early to ensure you find parking. Also, if you can't make it, please update your RSVP to reflect that. Thanks! :-)

    Carpool: Julia M M ... Patty and I can pick you up at Fry's Patio at Thompson Peak and Hayden (where the Grayhawk Hiking Club meets for carpool) on Thursday. We can take you and 2 others. If you (and the next two who respond) want to ride with us, let us know. We will meet there at 8:15am.

    Would anyone like to carpool from Fountain Hills or the North Scottsdale area?

    November 6, 2012

    • Julia M M

      Please let me know of a group that would like to carpool from North Scottsdale. Julia

      November 17, 2012

    • Marshall

      Julia ... I'm staying in the area of the hike for 2 or 3 hours afterwards. So, I won't be carpooling from North Scottsdale.

      November 18, 2012

  • Marshall

    Hey Tammy ... I saw that event ... it's a definite possibility for me, but I can't be sure at the moment. I'm going to have to play it by ear.

    • Tammy

      The Glendale Loving Hut is at 35th Ave and Union Hills, so it is a 10 to 15 minute drive from Thunderbird park.

      The buffet sounds more enticing than the VegPhoenix event. I'll know better that day if I will be willing and able to go. Thanks for the heads-up Tammy.

      November 17, 2012

  • Tammy

    Hey Marshall, I am headed to Loving Hut for Thanksliving Buffet feast after the hike if you want to join me for some Vegan food.
