Though I have been to a couple of meetups with another group, this will be my very first time with this meetup group. I have always wanted to go with you all on the hiking meetups, but it never did match my schedule. I have always wanted to hike Beaman Park, but never have. I am looking forward to it. I should be able to keep up with you all, but if I slow you down, I should be able to find my way back as long as the trial is marked. Look forward to it in the morning......Burt
