      Calories counts should be taken with a bolder of salt

    A great hike! I loved the colors as we walked westward into the setting sun. A good work-out after Thanksgiving "wining and dining". Thank you, Edmond!

    Sorry, not feeling well and couldn't make it. Feeling sad to miss the trail that always wanted to do.

    Hi Edmond, Is there a other reason I did not know beside newbies that you did not move me to the attending list this morning. If so please let me know so I won't make another mistake to sign up in the future hike. Thanks.

      Hi Holly, I moved people up that have recently hiked with me. People I'm not familiar with or I don't remember I would wait till later to check their history before moving them up. I have many hikers and for some reason I don't remember you immediately. My apologies for that. By the evening, you had already taken yourself off the waiting list. If you would like to go, I can add you to the list.

      Hi Edmond, no problem. I would love to join your hike but I already have other plans. Thanks and have fun.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
