      I'm sorry for being late. I was lost. I drove on crow canyon to Castro Valley! But anyway I went to Las Trampas and hiked. It was very nice place and met many dogs and hikers. I'm looking forward to hiking with group next time!

    Can anyone give me a ride to the hike from sycamore on 680 about ten min. Away I expect to get my car back on Monday and start hosting hikes as soon as I can

    • Jenny B.

      If you don't mind arriving early, I can. I could be there at 8:20 to 8:30. You're in the later hike so maybe someone else could pick you up later.

      March 17, 2013

    • Jenny B.

      er...8:30 to 8:40. I'll run by your house and see if you want a ride.

    Unfortuantely, we won't be able to make it this time. Hopefully, we will join you on another hike soon.

    We will give it a try, but my dog is a bit of a wimp!

    March 13, 2013

    • Jenny B.

      Lol, I find the humans are more wimpish than the dogs, but I did have a 15yr old mutt...

      Usually the case, but my Sadie girl even lies down for a rest in the middle of her walks! And she's just a pup (1 1/2 yrs)!
