Hi... My name is Val. I'm a young man of 65 years, moved to Arizona this April 2012 and would like to join your fantastic club! I have not hiked in so many years but did quite a bit in my past, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and here.
looking forward to getting involved with future club adventures!
Hey Val. Glad to have another patriot join us. See you Wednesday.
The hike is with the "Chandler Gilbert Ladies and Gents Singles Over 45". The same group that met for dinner last Saturday night at El Palacio, the Mexican restaurant. It's the only group that I have joined so far. The hike is at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch. It is at 2757 E Guadalupe Rd, Gilbert, AZ (map) , Gilbert, AZ. I haven't been there but I think it is just a short in town hike. I've wanted to check it out.
I appreciate your offer, however, I signed up for the hike at the Gilbert Riparian. Are you able to join the group this Saturday? On the eve of Memorial Day, I note that you are a Vietnam Vet and I want to express my condolences for your friends lost during that time. I hope you also have fond memories of those people and times. On a lighter note, I was the pitcher on a Vet's coed softball team at the U of MN many years ago. I have some memories of my team mates that still make me smile:).
Thank you for the information and invitation. It sounds like fun but I'll have to fore go it this time, life is happening. Hope everyone has a great time.
I hadn't heard of the party in Fountain Hills. I will look online and see if I can find the information.
My friend Chris signed me up for El Palacio on Saturday night. I'll be there as a guest for my first event with this group. I hope to make some new friends!
Welcome to the group! We are a fun bunch and have varied activities, and varied members with varied interests; hiking, movies, darts, concerts, etc. We can definitely use another guy.
You and I have similar backgrounds, but probably different time frames.
Welcome to the Wandering Soles hiking club. I hope you can make the meeting.
I look forward to meeting you.
