    I spoke to Daryl Crockett a few minutes ago. She says she will renew. I told her some members would be happy to throw a few bucks her way. She said wine sounds better. They are pretty cool folk.

    Hey Jon, I just saw that if you start a new meetup group in the month of January, it's 50% the regular price. (Hint, hint)

    My best hiking Meetup yet. Great, friendly group. And great idea to combine hiking with a meal after. I look forward to more with this group.

    Steve - I'm game to check out the store in North Easton afterwards..

    Vicki- Bary is close on the times, it all depends on how much of the park we decide to cover. I would plan on 2 hours or so to hike and more if you want to hang afterwards for some Gourmet Grub, maybe another 2 hours. If we get started at 9:30 as planned we should be done by approx 1:30. Hope to see you!

    This is Barry again. Sorry if I'm talking too much but I know the park well. The most common 3 mile flat loop takes an hour. If one takes a side loop in addtion, very mild elevation, add about 20 minutes. Lunch I can't comment on. I emphasize it's a very beautiful park.

    How long do you expect the whole event to be? Including the meal/chill-time afterwards? I am very interested, but also have something in the late PM..

  • Barry

    If people don't mind being outside, there's s large picnic area w tables. Rangers r nowhere near. And I am friendly with just about all of them anyway.

    i've been looking forward to getting in on some of these great trips, but i'm out of town this weekend. Can't wait for the next outing. Have fun :)

    I think it depends on who wants wine or beer. I doubt we can drink at the site, unless we discreetly use paper cups. Barry mentioned the Indian restaurant. Again, not sure if they have alcohol. Hopefully, you'll get more responses from the attendees. I'm flexible. Maybe we can have charcoal, drink, and patties in the car, but still play it by ear at the end of the hike.

    OK Trekkers- since this is my first time organizing an event I am looking to you for guidance. Right now weather calls for Partly Cloudy, high of 42. Do we want to cook and hang out around a fire after our hike, or go to a local pub or restaurant?

    January 2, 2012

  • Barry

    Not quite sure of my schedule yet. I live 3 miles away in Sharon and am at this park several times per week. In Sharon center 4 mules away there's a very good Indian restaurant run by nepalese with a very good buffet reasonably priced. Coriander.

    Anyone here into herbs, aromatherapy, etc? There is a new age store in North Easton I would like to pop into. They close at 5PM. Maybe after the gourmet?

    December 31, 2011

  • Jon

    Steve- I think I'll ask the group as the date approaches if they'd prefer to cook on the open fire or go to a local pub afterwards.
    How's that for an "I'm really not sure yet...."?

    December 29, 2011

  • Steve N.

    Jon, we're all curious. What's the gourmet treat after this Treacherous hike!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
