I'm planning a paddling trip on Sunday, July 27th. This trip is in conjunction with the Soup Hike, which is being held at my place on Saturday, July 26th, 2014. For more information on the Soup Hike, please go to the Pittsburgh Hiking Group, and click on Soup Hike for Saturday, July 26th. A little about the hike. Basically, folks bring something to share with 5 to 6 people, brownies, cake, pie, snacks, soup, etc. and we go for an easy 5 mile hike. Upon returning from the hike, we sample the various goodies that people brought to share. This trip is in 4 parts. You can come for one, or any one of the parts. When signing up, please be specific as to what part(s) you will be attending. The garage has ample outlets to plug in crock pots.
