●●Important disclaimer (please read)
Because of the Covid 19 pandemic we have to follow the current Covid restrictions (see online for more info) during our walk. A Covid Safe Ticket will be needed if you want to join us for the warming up stop in the middle of the hike (Pub The Casino)
As last week’s “Baby Hike” as baptized by Flo was a real succes and my Physiotherapist actually doesn’t allow me yet to go for big hikes, I decided to organise another one this Saturday.
The weather on Saturday will be cold (3-7°C), but without rain.
For this hike we will walk in the "Flemish Ardennes" and pass by some nice buildings.
Somewhere in the middle of the hike we will make a stop over in a pub (still negotiating to find one for 25 pers) to warm up and take a break.
Please don't forget to pay Maikel a beer :-)
During this hike we will mostly walk trough fields and small villages. We will walk both on paved and unpaved roads. I have never walked this road before. Be prepared for possible mistakes in the planning.

In the unlikely case of too bad weather, we may cancel a hike, even few hours before the event. If this must happen, we will of course update the Meetup website and send out an email to those registered. So, it is important to have access to either the Meetup.com website and/or your emails.
●● What to bring:
- a corona mouth mask for the public transport
- your corona safe ticket for the pancake break
- warm comfortable hiking clothes
- water and some snacks for the breaks
- a (head)lamp for when it gets dark in the evening
- some money to pay Maikel a beer ;-)
●● Basic rules:
Please RSVP only if you really intend to come. And if your plans change, update your RSVP latest 1 day before the hike, so other people still have the possibility to join. . This is basic courtesy towards others. People who cancel at the last minute or don’t show up for the hike will be blacklisted for future hikes. Do not show up for a hike unless you are on the roster (i.e. Yes RSVP, but not Wait Listed).

By signing up for this event, you agree to release the organizers from any responsibility and liability in all claims. As the participation is strictly voluntary and you freely choose to join, it is the responsibility of individuals participating to ensure that they are fit enough and have adequate coverage to protect themselves.
