Relatively short hike, 2.5-3 hours about, estimated. Walnut Creek Park is southwest of the juncture of Parmer and Lamar and one can get to the park by finding the Walnut Creek Rd off of Lamar just south of Parmer or from Parmer west of Lamar turn onto Willow Wild Dr which leads to Walnut Creek Rd.
We will meet in the picnic area off of the parking lot which is off of Walnut Creek Rd - which runs through the park.
Dress appropriately for the temperature, bring water, good shoes, water for dogs if you bring them. Discussion topics for may include 1) implications of continuing expansion of the universe, 3) when the US political parties change - what will the next ones be named (e.g. libertarian, tory, social democratic, tea party, fascist, communist, good time) and what will their policies be, 2) what are the social implications of 3D printers in every home, or any number other topic - probably more interesting than those.
If you are running late call my cell, otherwise we will leave on time.
