RESCHEDULED!! Happy Harriman Scavenger Hunt Hike!!

Calling all ducks!! Calling all ducks!! Due to the wet day for tomorrow let's reschedule this for SUNDAY, same duck time, same duck place. At least it'll be warm!!!! Please change your RSVP if you can't join us. It may be muddy, and spikes are pretty much a must just in case it's icy. Just because some places aren't doesn't mean the rest are safe. :-)

Tired of winter? Bored of snow? Need to get out??? This will be a nice energetic hike, combined with a scavenger hunt to get your mind thinking as well as your body moving!!

Participants should have prior winter hiking experience and if the world is snowy or icy MICROSPIKES or Stabilicers will be mandatory and I will need to see them before we leave. No Yaktrax of any sort. Proper spikes will have roughly 1/4 inch teeth.

Not for beginners or those who don't hike regularly. Winter hiking is a different beast than regular hiking and this will be moderate in difficulty plus the extra winter challenges: cold, wind, and you MUST be properly prepared.

It won't be anything strenuous or overly challenging, but you will need to be properly equipped with snow pants, snow or hiking boots, warm everything else. Camera, water, snacks, and a sense of humor and adventure are good items to pack!!! Please also bring a bag to put your scavenger hunt items in. :-)

We will start at the Bear Mountain Inn, ($8 parking fee) or carpool from Fort Montgomery overflow parking, not the main lot. It will be at least a 4 mile hike, maybe more depending on the hike, the conversation, the weather...no huge ups or downs though.

After the event please DO NOT TOUCH the Good to See You Buttons!!! Remember to change your RSVP if you can't make the event. Please do NOT text me, I will not get it and will not reply. Thanks!!

$2 Meetup fee or free for fist time friends or over 50 events with me. All hikes are at your own risk and you will need to sign a liability waiver to participate. Horrible weather cancels, but it's winter so as long as it's not a blizzard we will go. :-) Please send me your cell if I don't have it, I will return with mine. Cheers and happy trails!!!

    Wonderful 6 mile hike and delicious late lunch....semi-gloomy is always better than rotten and rainy.....Sandi found a mole, the only live thing we've ever had for the scavenger hunt. Lots of good things found, including a great day with wonderful friends. Thank you all for coming out!!! Take a nap and I'll see you tonight. :-) Zzzz......... :-)

    At school my class has hosted a school-wide fundraiser for the local Humane Society. If you'd like to contribute or donate any pet items your pets no longer use I'll gladly add your things to our efforts. Your Meetup fees today go towards this great cause. :-)

    Waders are also a good idea. :-) Bathing suits........extra socks and a change of shoes.....gaiters will keep your lower pants dry........ :-) There are lots of ways to deal with wet and mud!!!! :-)

    This is going to be a MUDDY hike. You will be happy if you have waterproof hiking boots. I can't imagine spikes will be necessary but I'm going to bring mine so you probably won't need yours, the umbrella theory. MUD MUD MUD......we will meet in the main Inn parking lot. :-)

    Weather still looks wet, but it has gotten better than it was so I'll check again tonight and update if necessary. :-)

    It looks like Saturday is going to be a day to stay indoors unless you're a duck. I'm going to make Sunday a rain date for this event if need be. Stay tuned just in case!!!! I'll update Friday night most likely if the forecast doesn't improve. :-)
