    Hey Since forecast for tomorrow is high of 66 degrees I recommend everyone to wear layers and make sure you wear appropriate shoes. All the trails are unpaved and uneven. See you all tomorrow. Please text me with your name if you have any questions.

    Hey Guys,

    For the folks interested in carpooling lets meet at Macy's parking lot Plymouth Meeting mall at 8 am. Plymouth meeting mall is at the base of North East extension (476). This is a perfect location for folks coming from the city or Willow Grove.

    We will splitting the car pool in to 2 groups.

    First group - who will be returning after lunch (at or around 2 pm)
    Second group - Who will stay till the end for Glen Onoko Trail

    Can we get volunteer drivers for both groups?

    I will be the first and last one to leave so I'm going to be driving my car.

    Hey Everyone, I hope everyone is excited as I am for this hiking trip!!! I really want to stress the importance of being on time. Since we have a such a big group I will not be able to wait around for late comers. If your not their by 09:30 am I will not be able to wait for you. SO PLEASE BE THERE ON TIME!!!!!

    Their is very limited cell phone coverage in poconos so catching up with us on trails will be very difficult. So please I can not stress this enough BE THERE ON TIME!!!! Avg drive time to Meetup location (Wawa on 80 and 476 intersection)
    From Jersey City - 1 hour 50 mins
    From Edison - 2 hours
    From Philadelphia - 1 hour 45 mins So please take the drive time seriously and don't be late. Swapnil
