    Sorry, another obligation came up. I had to volunteeer for the SPCA. And I missed what sounded like an enjoyable time. I'll keep my attention on other local hikes. Thanks for all the work you do Jeff. Maggie

    Hi Jeff, I'm going to have to pass on today's hike. My forecast shows rain. I think this will make it too slippery for me. :-(

    This hike sounds like fun, but I won't be visiting NY until early August. Maybe you'll have one then that I can attend. I think I remember from childhood blueberry picking along the Peterskill, with a friend of my mom's, my mom, and the friend's daughter.

      I might be able to go on this hike, since I believe you rescheduled it. I will be in the area for a class reunion that weekend, and will RSVP with a yes or no, a little closer to the date. If I go, I may bring a friend from school days.

    I think I can finally, finally attend! This will be my first with this particular group.

    July 28, 2014

  • maggie

    yes, I would like to attend. A short and mostly level elavation would suite me well.
    see you then, Jeff.
    we've got to take my picture.
