The hike is ON! See you all at Wallenberg Square!
Hooman in the comments checked Acuweather and found that the rain will not start until after 2:00 pm today.
The Olympic Diner has re-opened as the Classic.
The new owners re-designed the seating. They now require a reservation to reserve the group area.
We will have to stop our hike at mid-point to get an accurate count and then let them know how many of us there will be.
They are offering us use of their group table as well as separate checks, but do not want to sponsor us at this time.
I have eaten at the restaurant a few times. It is has been modernized with good prices and caring service workers. If you enjoy cake, they make great looking pastry.
I think that I'll do the Orange Trail in Reverse this week.
We will meet at 10:30 AM and start the hike at 10:45 SHARP!
Estimated time for the hike is about one and one quarter hours. Could be + or - a little bit.
30 minutes into the hike, I will take a tally of how many of us will go to the new diner so that we can get a reservation for the table. There is no pressure on anyone to attend the meal because the new management is not a paying sponsor.
Hope to CYA there!
