    I will definitely come. Looking forward to it. My only concern is that we arrive quite late and after breakfast/coffee which means hiking at hottest part of day. Maybe we should take the earlier bus. Is there one at 8am?

    Like last time, price will be between 10-15€.. We will take the Bus specially for us to Santa Pau (close to Olot).. A small town next to Garrotxa Natural Park.. After having coffee/ breakfast.. we will start from this town. We will be back to Santa Pau after 6 hours hike. Will take nice late lunch in a restaurant called Can Xel. Again, confirm your RSVP before 7th May deadline. In case, you have issues and you want to change your RSVP late..Just send me an email and then change your RSVP (But don't say, I could not wake up so I can't join you or I had been to late Friday night party , so cant wake up on time ;-).. No late night parties before the event, If you cant get up :-))

    But it's quite likely that once we know the date for the event, many people who's now going change their reservation.

  • Ritz

    Well... we can accept more ppl.. But, we need to get a special mini coach from Teisa.. Just for us.. I am talking with them, so if we agreed they can provide us special coach for all future hiking events.. Lets see.. I will keep you updated..
