Agi, Alison, Amy, Anna, Bob L, Bob Mc, 2 Christines, Darina, Diane, Elyse, Hallie, Holly, Irma, Jennifer, Karen, Karin, Kelly, Kimo, Linda, Lyman, Lynn, Mark, Mary, Norma, Paul, Rhonda, 2 Roberts, Ron, Shari, Sara, Scott.

I'm the slowest on these hikes, so let's not slow the group down any more.

For those of you who have done strenuous trailblazing hikes with me, you've been referred to as Camille's Commandos--here (http://www.meetup.com/calabasasdayhikers/calendar/15540775/)and here (http://www.meetup.com/fun-in-the-sun-Oxnard/calendar/15541766/). So come on, Commandos--here's one for you. Great training for our 12-20 milers.

After the Deluge Hike in Satwiwa

Rain is forecast for Saturday, Sunday and Monday! See forecast here:

This will make it impossible to hike on the trails--too muddy and slippery. So we'll hike on the Black Beast, aka Awful Asphalt (my recent name for it), in Satwiwa. That is, of course--if it's not raining at 6:00PM. Please be able to check your email or this website at 4:00PM in the afternoon.

We'll probably make it to Ranch Center Road, go a short distance, then turn around. It's an out-and back route--all downhill on the way out, then all uphill on the way back.

Meeting Place: Will be emailed to participants.

Time: Arrive earlier and have packs on, ready to leave promptly at 6:00PM. If you get there at 6:01PM, we'll be gone.

Estimated Stats: About 5-6 miles, 800'.

Terrain: Wide fire road and asphalt road.

Level: This hike will suit you if you're usually at the front of the pack and wish the group would go faster.
Bring: Snack, water, first aid kit, camera, headlamp (I have extras to lend), trekking poles if you like using them.

Wear: Comforable shoes (lugs not absolutely necessary), layers. It will be chilly.

Dogs: We'll be in Point Mugu State Park, and no dogs are allowed there.

Sunset: 7:04PM. Twilight: 7:29PM.
