    Sorry, but I needed more notice this morning as to whether the hike was happening or not. For the future,could you post by 6:30 am or thereabouts? I checked at 6:45 am and there was no message.

    Caroline,
    I don't think I can make it this late. I'll try but I was under the impression that the hike was likely going to be cancelled. I usually have to know by 6 or 6:30 am in order to get everything done around here and drive to the meeting place

    Weather looks a little better this morning. The hike is on. Rain gear is suggested. Temps will be cool and in the 60s. We are still planning to stop for dinner up in Brevard for those who want to go. See you at either the Ranger Station (10:00 am) or at WalMart. Please update your RSVP if your plans have changed and you will not be attending. Thanks. :)

    Just did my forecast check and there is 70% chance of "potential heavy" rain Saturday...Seriously? I really, really am hoping it's a fluke because I miss you guys. I hope I put in the wrong zip code...

    Fairly new to the area from Florida but have done some hiking and only once kayaking calm river in the Upstate. In this meet up group are there some easy to moderate hikes and paddles for my husband and I to join in?

      Suggestion taken!!! I'll actually have my hiking boots, proper clothing, my hiking pole and a real breakfast!!! I'll also bring some arsenic that I can swallow if I start having problems. That way you can just leave my body along the side of the trail.

      July 29, 2013

    • Caroline

      Hi Kevin. Just back from a trip. Very funny! LOL. Hope you wont need the arsenic.
