Q: Do you run? A: Some of the folks on my hikes like to run;
the majority of folks who attend these hikes maintain a moderate pace (we stop
once in a while, but this is not a stroll). It is important for me to keep all
hikers at a similar skill level for group safety. Please reach out to me if you
are concerned about your skill level.
Q: Will you still hike in the rain? A: Yes, a little light
rain never hurt anyone…unprepared for the rain though could; please come
prepared for ANY weather condition.

or torch to get you down safely.
Q: Where do you meet? A: I will
always meet in the WEST LOT at the Eastgate Park and Ride (as I have been doing
all summer)…look for the lot closest to the hotel. Please note, with changes of
season we will be leaving promptly at 5:45pm from the WEST LOT.
Q: What do you look like; how
will I find you? A: I look just like my picture…and you will find me standing
with others in the WEST LOT.
