Scottish Woods Trail Hike

To get to the trail head - go NW on 360 from the southern crossing of 360 and Mopac, basically the bottom of the bow formed by Mopac and 360.  Take a right on Scottish Woods Trail,  go to the end and park.  It dead ends on Camp Craft and the trail head is less than a hundred yards to the right on Camp Craft.

We will hike for about 3.5 hours, ending at about 10:30.  Not sure what the hike will be, most likely we will have a hill hike on the other side otherwise probably mostly Creek side hike on the same side as the hill of life. We may hike upstream to the tree house, or down stream to twin falls or both.

Bring your stories of misadventures as a teenager - legal, illegal, embarrassing at the time, ..... Our hike will more fun than some of the memories, but probably not necessarily as funny.

- FTC announced its second robocall exterminating challenge, hosting a security conference contest to build open-source methods to lure robocallers into honeypots and predict which calls are robocalls.

Please be on time. We will try to meet at the trailhead at 7:00 AM.

      Sorry Esther and Thao that we didn't get you to the group. We waited a few minutes for people who called, but unlike other groups we try to leave the trailhead as close as possible to the stated time

    Hi everybody, here are the details on something I mentioned at the end of our awesome hike this morning, which Dave suggested I write down as a comment on this page: If you're interested in drumming lessons, and if you live sort of "north", maybe you'd be interested in a series of six two-hour drumming lessons. They'll be on Sunday afternoons, from 2 to 4 pm, beginning Aug. 10th. They will be held at my house, and the teacher is Mae Stoll, who has been teaching West African percussion for about 7 years in her South Austin studio. Please e-mail me directly if you're interested.
