Availability?

Are people available during the week? I have a great spot that I hike a lot. Black Diamond Mines regional preserve and during the week you can avoid the 5 dollar cover fee to park. That's to say I have still gone during the weekends on occasion.

I usually go up there for photography and insect viewing (especially Ants) if anyone is interested in hiking in this area, let me know please. I am really interested in meeting some relaxed, easy going folks for hiking!

heres a link to the preserve page on the East bay regional park district site.

Yes! I've been missing out on hikes because I work weekends. My true "weekend" is Thursday/Friday. I don't have a car though, so I'd need to carpool with someone, hopefully from near a BART station. I live near the Ashby BART but could go to another BART station if more convenient.

Awesome, I do not have school this week. Not sure if you want to just join me one of these days. I'd like to get at least a few people to come with me on the hike. I tried posting an event for this group but no one rsvp'd so it never came up on the main page.

Thursday or Friday work for me as well. It's a pretty easy place to get to and you can take BARt easily or get a ride.

I usually like going somewhat early. Let me know :)

Thanks! -Ant

I wish! I am quite busy in the next couple of days. What about next Tuesday? And can anyone else make it?

Hmm Next Tuesday works for me. I would like to get some more people going if possible. If I make it a meetup event will you rsvp for Tuesday next week? Need at least 2 besides myself to make it an official meetup.

Thanks!

Hi Ant,

I went to 511.org and it's telling me it would take 2.5 hours on public transit.....??

Ok, well it takes me 15 minutes to drive to Black Diamond from where i live and I am literally at the last stop of BART it pittsburg, and it takes maybe 1 hr 15 mins for me to go to a giants game in S.F. from where i live. That does not add up. lol

For you to get to the Pittsburg station from where you are is likely a little under 45 minutes.

No one rsvp'd the event so it's probably not worth it for you to come out. I will try another event. Have you ever hiked China Camp?

Hi Ant,

Just saw your message. Okay, so in the future could you possibly give me a ride if I can get to you by BART?

Yes, I've camped at China Camp actually. Pretty hiking. Not incredibly removed from civilization, but pretty.
