OK, Lunatics. It's time for another Full Moon Madness - Blackett's style. Way overdue since something always seems to interfere, so lets go. Sunset is at 7:28 and twilight ends at 7:55, but the moon rise is actually set for 7:22. Adding about 8 minutes for it to clear the Rincons means we should see it about 25 minutes before it actually gets dark. Still good sillouette pictures on the way down.
We'll hang out at the top for a bit and start down around 8:15. Back at the parking lot around 9:45. While we'd love to wait for everyone to get to the top, it is a "school night", so please make sure this rough time table fits your hiking ability or be comfortable with possibly hiking by yourself at times.
Same old Blackett's stats. 6 miles round trip, 1700 foot elevation gain, and the same ol' intermediate butt-kicking hike.
Bring a flashlight (if you must), 2 liters of water, and maybe a snack for the top as well.
Punctuality counts! Hiking STARTS at 6:35. Plan on being there 10 minutes early. It takes that long to say "hi" to everyone and put on your shoes. I like Bruce's precedence: "If you are more than 5 minutes late, don't count on us waiting for you. Although, if you phone and can get the moonrise delayed, that will probably buy you 5 more minutes" (not 20). Use Google or something similar to estimate your individual drive time. Its no fun for anyone when you get there 15 min late and the group is already on the trail.
As always, your attendance acknowledges your understanding and acceptance of the risks associated with hiking.
