    Thank you Peter. The weather held up just enough to make a good hike, and the temperature was balmy for November, with a small, but friendly group. I look forward to future hikes! Did the Jets lose today???

    Is this still a go?

  • David B.

    Call me crazy, but I'm getting cabin fever, and watching the Jets losing 27-7 has me even more in the mood to vacate my apartment, and be among others, and get in a good hike, whatever the weather!

  • Annmarie

    still raining, bummer- don't think I'll make it-enjoy!

    So sorry but I'm unable to make it due to the weather.... those of you who will attend, have a great hike!

    Can someone give me an address or the directions of the place we will meet?

    Is anyone thinking of going to Katonah Museum to see Eye to I ... 3,000 Years of Portraits before the hike? It's next door... http://www.katonahmuseum.org/exhibitions

    November 16, 2013

    • goshia

      Just checked the weather report and it starts looking like a walk with a flashlight topped with rain :( So I guess we're canceling and the museum is also an idea for another time... But yes, Kevin's time estimate is correct.

      November 17, 2013

    • David B.

      Hopefully the rain isn't too much of a factor. The museum would be a fun future venture. I don't know if I'll make it. If I can't so long as Mother Nature cooperates, I'll make the next one, but I'll make it a "game time decision" as it's still on, and I was/am looking forward to this one.

      November 17, 2013

  • Peter

    The hike is still on. Plan to bring a raincoat and a flashlight. Due to the cloud coverage, moon visibility will be minimal, unfortunately. I have posted the equivalent hike for Sunday March 16th; hopefully the weather will be more cooperative the next time.

  • Patricia

    I must cancel for today. Life happens! Sorry - I was looking forward to a fun hike and meeting new friends very much.

    Good morning, where is the exact location to meet for the hike pls? I'm driving up from Queens & I don't want to get loss! Thx.

      Follow the Google Map link provided in the writeup. In words: 684 N to Katonah exit. East on Rte 35 to first stoplight. Right on Jay St. Go one block and turn left at first street, which is Reservoir Rd. Park along road there.
