Re: [hiking-309] The Hiking group

This team of hikers is amazing.  I've only been on one hike with you all but had a blast getting to know everyone on that particular hike.  I have not been on a hike since that time due to my work situation.  I am  very glad to still have a job!  So when things mellow out I will meet up with you again:)

In the mean time- be safe, happy and content.

Lisa
