We will be going to Malibu Creek State Park.

The trail will be about 20 miles as the crow 'n gull fly...

Allow for about 8 hours 'n change, as the crow flies...

If it rains... dust storm, water spout, etc... the deal is off.

There is a waitlist...

I do NOT live at the keyboard.

So, I'll add you (or not) as soon as I can...

Ghost of Christmas Past, present & yet to come...

If you show bad form by signing up for two dozen different trails on the same day & time; only to pick the best one that suits you, while taking limited space away from someone who really wants to go: Don't waste my time or yours by signing up.

Read the complete write up...

Most, if not all, of your questions can be answered here...

There will be no:

• Having your nose wiped for you.

• Coddling

• Cooing

• Hand holding ( unless you { you in the 3rd person } are a couple, plan to be a couple; etc...)

A couple of what has yet to be determined...

We will go by Century lake, where the original Planet of The Apes was filmed.

Unfortunately, Ape City no longer exists; well, at least by the lake...

Around the corner, we will pass through the original outdoor location where the TV series M*A*S*H was filmed.

We will then continue to Castro Saddle to over look the Pacific, Santa Barbara Island & the surrounding mountains...

There is a lot to see and may be sudden & frequent stops for print making, so don't forget to bring a camera...

We are in no hurry.

Leave your 8 track players at home.

There will be plenty to hear in the surrounding countryside... work the crowd and talk to others in the group...

Wear comfortable clothing (come in costume, if you like) and a hat. Tennis shoes will be fine for this pilgrimage; boots are best.

Chew toys:

Be sure to bring a hat, to wear, not to eat.

The eating of one's own hat; or anyone else's for that matter, is considered bad form.

Bring 3-4 quarts of water, more if you like & something to chew on... (do not chew on your nails, or anyone else's {see eating one's own hat description above}...).

Peanut Butter Cups or See's Chocolate See Gars are more than acceptable to bring and chew on !!!

(... anytime of the day...)

Do NOT sink your fangs into anyone else's neck or anywhere else for that matter. This is also considered bad form & should be avoided.


101 toward Ventura or Los Angeles (east or west), exit Lost Hills Road.

Turn south, drive about a mile, the park will be on your right.


Necessary facilities should be available at the park; however, adjustments should be made prior to arrival.

Worse case scenario: drastic measures can be taken along the way...


Grab a place in the car park.

The fine print:

Do NOT bring your dogs, cats, canaries, javeline, drama, +1’s or other pets.

No whining, sassing, gossiping or throwing looks.

Leave your job at work or at home.

Do NOT push real estate/refinance and/or try to sell soap to the group.

You will have about 10 minutes to:

• complain about work

• politics

• current affairs

After that; enjoy the scenery...

I will take your confession(s) as necessary... after that; enjoy the scenery...

Scamming & laying it on thick:

If anyone wants to get someone's phone number, be cordial about it.

Do NOT start at one end of the conga line & work your way to the other end and/or lay it on thick.

This is considered bad form & should be avoided.

If the individual concerned is NOT interested: give it a rest.

Rules of the road & proper etiquette:

Walking, up hill has the right of way; downhill yields to uphill.

Runners, yield to all walkers & horses.

Bikes, yield to all walkers & horses.

Horses have right of way on all accounts.

Showing off:

Getting to the top first or being the fastest on the trail: no one cares.

It's about the experience, scenery & friends...

Straying from the purer faith:

If you decide to go off on your own: you will be on your own.

Let someone know should you decide to bow out early...
