The Plan:
People drive many miles to go to a parking lot and meetup with others who have also driven many miles. Then these people abandon their cars and take off on foot to follow some weirdo (me) , who many have never meet before, into the woods at a moderate pace for about 7 miles. They then return to their cars and go to a local dining/drinking establishment to so they can forget the whole charade. What compels them to do this is the subject of a TLC documentary that will air in 2015. It has also probably been blogged about somewhere.

The Meeting Place:
We shall meet at the parking lot just south of Bishop Lake Road and just east of Bishop Lake.
