This weekly evening hike will be different each week and will range from easy to moderate. We will begin at 6:30 pm, which should allow time for many members to end their workday and get to the hike without undue stress. Most hikes will likely take about 2 hours, but since each one will be different, some will take either more or less time. I will also vary the locations somewhat to allow for different people to attend.
I will try and mention sunset times, but note that many, if not most of these hikes will include at least some hiking at night, so bring a flashlight or headlamp, in addition to water, hat, sunscreen (if needed), hiking poles, backpack, food, compass, tent, night vision goggles, wilderness survival kit, Swiss Army knife, 1000' of rope, repelling harness, grappling hook, bear and insect repellant, GPS, satellite phone, maps, water purification tablets, and Ouija board.
Other than that, you won't need to bring much.
I'll edit each individual week's description some days in advance so you'll know which state and county we'll be hiking in. I do believe most of the hikes will take place in the Continental U.S.A.
If individual members would like to lead one of these weekly hikes, I can arrange that too. Just sent me a note, but I want them always to begin at 6:30 pm so as to avoid confusion.
I myself will NOT be able to make it every week, so on those days I will simply cancel the event, unless one of you happens to be leading that week.
