Moonlight hike - Training Hill to Cool for pizza and Karaoke

PLEASE CHANGE YOUR RSVP IF YOUR PLANS CHANGE. Thanks, and we'll catch you next time!

We will hike from the American River confluence to American River Pizza in Cool. We'll end up at the Milestone Saloon where we can have fun with Karaoke.

http://www.americanriverpizza.com/About-Us.html

Hike up Training Hill (.9 miles of strenuous ascent on dirt and rocks). Regroup at the top of the hill. At this time, you may order food from American River Pizza. I will have menus available. We will continue to Cool via the Olmstead Loop. At American River Pizza, you may eat there or take your food to go to Milestone Saloon, where they have Karaoke. Leave the saloon at 10:30 p.m. and return on the Wendell T. Robie trail back to the confluence. This is a loop hike. We will not go back down the hill.

Please don't make this your first hike ever.

Singing while hiking is encouraged! It helps keep the critters at bay. This is the time to practice your Karaoke.

Suggested items to bring: Bug repellent; headlamp or flashlight (pointed down, please), but we prefer to use straight moonlight as much as possible; plenty of water.

Wear good hiking boots and comfortable clothes. Poles are recommended.

Dogs okay, if you don't mind tying them up outside the establishments. All other rules for dogs apply.

Suggested gas money for your driver: $4 (don't forget this)

~7 miles total

6:00 p.m. - Meet at Sunsplash Park and Ride (Taylor/Atlantic exit), leave promptly at 6:10. Carpooling as much as possible is recommended.

6:40 pm - Meet at the trailhead (directions below)

7:30 pm - Regroup at the top of Training Hill (those who wish can order food, I have menus)

8:30 pm - Arrive at the restaurant - OPTIONAL: You may get your food to go and proceed to the saloon. Once at the saloon, get your song requests in. Butch (Karaoke guy) welcomes tips!

10 - 10:30 pm - Leave the saloon - we will all decide when, but no later than 10:30. If you must leave earlier, please let me or one of the other hikers know. 

11:30 p.m. - Estimated ending time back at the confluence, but don't be scared, we'll be together!

12 a.m. - Estimated time back at Sunsplash

    GREAT NEWS! Butch says "we will have Karaoke one way or the other." Either he will be there around 8:30, which is when we all arrive or his friend will be there to do it. YEA!!
