    Great way to decompress after a crazy day at work! Glad no one grew extra hair or began howling....

    Great night - Martha apologized as she was on a conference call. All we needed was a little fire pit and some beverages as the moon was extra special.

    Sending my regrets for this time due to work commitments

  • Craig

    Sounds great, unfortunately have a wine event dinner in Tarrytown at the same time.

    March 22, 2013

  • Katherine

    Boy, could i use an excuse to howl!

    March 22, 2013

  • Anne

    A friend who lives in this area just informed me that there have been many cars broken into on Reservoir Road recently: http://bedford.patch.com/articles/second-car-theft-on-reservoir-road-in-a-month. She suggested we ask the local police to patrol from time-to-time while we're hiking. So, I guess we do need the police escort after all!

    March 13, 2013

    • Peter

      Anne, I have been hiking or running on that road 2-3x nights per week for the last several years and have had no problems regarding break-ins. In fact I have rarely seen anyone up there after dark. Locks and car alarm activation from now on!

      March 14, 2013

  • Raymond R.

    Hope to make it

    March 9, 2013

  • Peter S.

    66 people?!? Are we gonna need a police escort?

    March 4, 2013

    • Joe B.

      May I suggest a liquor license! lol

      March 4, 2013

  • Robert D.

    +!

    March 3, 2013

  • Helen

    I use to live up that way so I'm looking forward to it very much. Should I bring a flashlight?

    February 27, 2013

    • Peter

      Probably will not need a flashlight; the moon should provide sufficient ambient light.
