    Tire Clean up Update - Dragons tickets
    Andy, As a thank you to our group for cleaning up all those tires, Montgomery County Solid Waste has sent me 10 Dragons tickets for Saturday, July 7 at 7:00 p.m. Actual seats and not just the grassy area. I am contacting everyone who came to the cleanup. Those who contact me first will get tickets until they run out. If you do want one or a pair, I will mail them to you. Would like any?

    My name is Giovannina Penze and I am a freelance writer. I am currently working on a story about the 5 common mistakes that hikers make on their first challenging hike. I am looking for both good and bad hiking experience stories! I would love to hear back from you. Please pass this on to any fellow hikers you know as well.

    I am hoping to do most of my interviews this weekend. So please contact me if you are interested.
    My cell phone is [masked]

    Thank you!

    I couldn't figure out how to upload photos on to the website, but I did put some on the FaceBook page! What a great evening hike!

    Friends Of The Buckeye Trail

    Andy, would you recommend a book to purchase regarding hiking the Buckeye Trail. I've decided I want to hike the entire trail and since you have I thought you could recommend a good book to start with. I understand you have a journal as well. I am attending your Meetup on Feb. 3 for thru hiking the BT. Looking forward to meeting you.
