    I really wanted to go on this hike, but I couldn't find hiking shoes in time. I didn't have time to go back to south Bay to get mine and its too long of a hike to not have good shoes. Sorry for the last minute decline but I hope someone from the wait list can go.

    Hi Seth,
    Given the number of peeps on the waiting list, why not organize 2 groups of 30, one closely following the other about 10 mins apart. If you are planning to have rest breaks, we can all meet at the break locations and mingle.
