Things to know about this hike:

• I am getting most of my information about this hike from the webpage below.
• You should take into consideration your own ability to hike this distance at an average hiking pace.
• If it is raining like crazy or forecasted to rain I will cancel this the night before.
• There is a possibility I will be travelling for work over this weekend.  If so I will need to postpone this hike.

    Great hike Burr!
    For those who are interested, here's the link to the cheese hike - unfortunately I was mistaken and it's in Gruyeres, not Emmental.

    I am confused how some got to be on the attending list when the RSVP's don't open until tomorrow?

    June 3, 2013

    • Martin

      people who did the first stage got a spot by default and some time to check if we could do it or not. Now when it is obvious that some of us won't be able to make it, the RSVP will open tomorrow at the defined time, so everybody else has an equal chance to RSVP ;) I hope it helps plus good lucj with being online on time.
