Sunset Potluck and "'A' Mountaintop Full-mooning"

We have a potluck at the pavilion of Sunset Parking lot of 'A' Mountain at 4:30 pm, then climb 'A' Mountain to celebrate the rising full moon. We will take the maintenance road to come back to the parking lot.
The hiking distance is totaled about 2 miles, with a few hundred feet of elevation gain. All on trail.
The difficulty level is classified as very difficult if, one closes one's eyes, and hobbles along on one leg the whole distance.
If you signed up for Las Cruces Hiking Meetup Group 3 years ago, and ever since been wondering, when will it be your very first hike with this group, well, this is it. This is it!
Bring along a torchlight, just in case. Bring your most favorite dish. And also, feel free to bring your 'free spirit' (like barley juice? wink) and good humor. Let's party!
Since we are going to be in the open, dress warmly.
Please RSVP along with what dish you are bringing.

    Such a fun party, plenty of food and drink, plenty of merry to go around. Good company and good hike.
    Especially impressed by Timmy, you know, my retard brother, who hauled his whole refrigerator and half a house over, and was the first one there. And dressed beautifully also, bright blue t-shirt, shorts and flip flop sandals. I got quite a mind to prop up a tent in his front yard, you know, that way, would save me a bundle of money by feeding myself! :)
    I am hosting another full moon party next month! Check it out! and the whole Las Cruces is invited!!!

    On the small chance it happens to rain tonight, are we still hiking?

      Had a deal with the weatherman. If he keeps his end of the deal, we are all good! And the worst scenario would be : eat, drink, and be merry :)

    Can we arrive late? What time is the moon rising?

    January 26, 2013

    • Yubao

      Somewhere after 5:30. I don't have a computer to find the exact rise time. And I do have a faulty memory. If you want come later, I don't think it's a problem.

    I'll bring something, maybe some sort of main dish item and some cookies.

    January 25, 2013

  • Yubao

    As the host, I reserve the right to make a last minute decision, based on what's already there, like, for example, barley juice?

      So, Timmy, my nemesis, my "dumb-n-dumber"­ tandem bo, besides your poker face, what are you bringing? And i trust your intelligence

      January 25, 2013

    • Yubao

      Well, I was going to write that I trust you are intelligent enough to take that as a serious question:)

      January 25, 2013

  • Timmy

    I am very interested. I might be able to attend. Have to see how I am feeling tomorrow. Sounds like fun though, and I have always wanted to get up A mountain.
