    We had the sun, the moon and the stars. That with the pleasure of good company (and a bit of wine to boot) made for a memorable day.

    Jim.. You are too funny with your one-liners! Thanks for your comedic relief ! I barreled down back to my car, from rosenthal's winery thankful I maintained enough going home. However, I am going back there to get a bottle of the Chardonnay that was so smooth and yummy.

  • Alicia C.

    I have a similar question. I want to make sure it's okay to bring my seven-year-old. Thanks.

    July 26, 2013

    • ! That JOHN G.

      Probably a bit much for a 7 year old regardless of specis...

    This will be my first time hiking with this group. Is it adults only, or can I bring a 12 yr old along with?

    July 26, 2013

    • ! That JOHN G.

      a 12 year old HUMAN should be fine... although a 12 year old Chihuahua could pose a problem

    It is going to be fun. I had to cancel another hike that started at 8:30
    because of a conference call....This hike came at the perfect time.
    It's always great fun to hike with That JOHN Guy.
