    Hey Connie,

    Hope to see you and your pup out there again sometime!

    It was wonderful for me but I was a drag on this one. I'm not giving up and am trying again tomorrow. Maybe it will be flatter. If not, I hope someone says, because I don't want to repeat yesterday's performance. I'm going to try the camera group and I am with a different senoirs ambling group and we went to Knoxville last Saturday and I easily walked 10K, I guess. But we took 4 or 5 hours, I seems. Any...."don't give up the ship"...

      Hey Connie, definitely don't give up. Bill had posted this as a super-fast hike (read the red fine print about 3 mph) but most of the arboretum hikes are way more leisurely. Beware of the guy with the extra-long legs.

    Darn! Darn! Duty calls and I suppose I must make a living before I commit to hike. Regret terribly that I can't make it, but glad it opens up a space for someone else. Enjoy!

    How can the hike be filled at 2:45 when RSVP's don't open until 4:00?

    March 19, 2013

    • Debra

    I'll likely park within the Arboretum and meet you as you or soon after you enter the property.
