    Hi all,

    I remember I met a lady in Appeal Industry during the hiking.

    Are you around? Or do you know her name? I'd like to get on-hold with her and work on an online project.

    It should be mild to medium difficulty level hiking, 7+ miles; good for most of people, but will be too difficult for people rarely exercise. Look forward to you tomorrow!
