    Before seeing this had already committed to our PTC club in Nolde Forest to carpool with a group of people. the group I regularly hike with is with PTC or here. Just that I usually commit to carpooling people there to a spot. We list our hikes three months in advance so people can reserve to carpool and had already committed. Not fair to back out at last minute to someone who is counting on me to drive up to Upper Berks County from Eastern Montgomery County.
