Hey Everyone,

Let's gear up for some major disappointment!

You know, that's when you open up your presents and find you didn't get what you wanted... or got the cheaper version and now all your friends will laugh at you... or you realize you got re-gifted... or you got the exact same thing as your frenemy.

Cheer up, that's not what Christmas is about anyway. Christmas is about this completely ridiculous story of a woman who got pregnant and gave birth to a super human being, all while maintaining she was still a virgin, can you believe that shit?! Talk about pressure...

There is one thing you can count on though:

No, no, no, not my annual Christmas Day hike, silly... death!

Yep. It's guaranteed, so you might as well make the most of life while you got it and forget about hoping that all those material objects will bring you happiness and just choose to be happy NOW! And, thankful you didn't have to act like a virgin when everyone knew you really weren't, and thankful you didn't have to act like a saint, have a full beard and wear a robe with no underwear all year long!

However, if you wanna hike with me on Friday, you gotta bring me presents.


Okay no, not really.

Now I don't want all of you to get excited about the Big Day, because there is rain in the forecast β˜”οΈ πŸ’§πŸ˜°

I know, I know, I'm not happy about it either, but what can you do? So if it's raining in the morning, obviously we won't be hiking, so we can meet up and get coffee and share stories... yay! But if it's just cloudy... we're on like Donkey Kong 😁 😸 😁

Here's the deal, I'll announce the location of the hike (or coffee place)... The Night Before Christmas (that was totally unintentional) in a Meetup email for those of you who are confirmed. Just know it's gonna be in Thousand Oaks, which is located in the Connayo-rhymes-with-mayo Valley, one of the best places on earth 🌎

I am limiting attendance on this hike so I'm not allowing any plus ones when you sign up. I also ask that you please don't sign up and hold a place just so you can be confirmed and then decide Christmas morning whether you wanna come or not. OKAY?! That's not cool for those who are on the wait list. I appreciate your cooperation! πŸ‘

I'm allowing doggies on this one too 🐾 as long as you abide by my rules of picking up and packing out their waste, because poop doesn't look like this:

πŸ’© πŸ’© Thank you!!

Here are some pictures of previous Christmas Day hikes:

Keeping my fingers crossed it'll be clear!!!

See you then my little Elves and Tinkerbells... πŸ’‹ πŸ’‹ πŸ’‹
