    Looking at the way the rain is moving I am not going. I thought it was moving east, but I see it is moving mostly North. Looks like it will be safe (no lightning), but looks like it will be wet.

    July 4, 2013

  • Bob S

    Looks like showers but no thunderstorms or heavy rain so I'm going forward with the
    hike as scheduled.

    Looking at the weather forecast there is a strong chance of thunderstorms.I live up in this area if we end up with thunderstorms especially lightning I will cancel the hike.I will make that decision at 6:30 tomorrow and post.

  • Bob Askey

    I may go at a slower pace, if there are others who want to also. I'm not going to set up a separate hike. So, I will be taking the sweep position. Anybody who wants to go a little slower can stick with me.

    July 1, 2013

    • Bob Askey

      Absolutely Bob, it is perfectly fine the way you posted it. I hope that offering to hang back for those who want to go slower is ok with you. If you prefer I could post this as a separate hike on THM. I was thinking about doing this hike and thought I should check to make sure that you did not already have a hike planned. I would have picked the same time.

      July 1, 2013

    • Bob S

      Bob that's fine I appreciate it.As you know I usually do this on Saturday but like many others I'm not working on the 4th so I decided to make time for an early hike at Beaman.I will be posting Beaman this Saturday as well so feel free to hike and we can lead 2 groups.
