35Up's Bootie Shaping Trek at ROSWELL's Historic Vickery Creek Covered Bridge!

Hello 35Up Trek Boogie'in Hounds:

Join your 35Up & 40 or so, Mingling in Atlanta MeetUp friends at the World Famous, Roswell Covered Bridge for an awe inspiring 5 mile Bootie Shaping Trek. Respectfully, continuing our trail scooting, before, you start hooting about your winter bootie pack! ....:) :)..We are working on some summer pool parties!.... Yes! Start thinking what your NEW 2013 silhouette will look like!!!..

We will meet up at 3:30 P.M., at the Covered Bridge Trail-head for Vickery Creek (w/2 new restrooms). (Note: We have a new trek to add. It was renewed by our Roswell trail rehabilitation volunteers. This new trail has a new Eagle Scoot project bridge, we will be crossing, as well.)

This will be a new 5 miles stretch, to continue preparing our Spring booty! & of course, we will be watching closely for Vickery's Great Blue Heron along this beautiful creek feed into the Chattahoochee. 35Up's trail scoot & Great Blue Heron search will begin at Vickery’s beautiful Covered Bridge, and with the exception of a few short steep stretches alongside the creek-ravine bluffs and gorges, the terrain is fairly level. (Easy Level D-2) We will include a stop at the spillway dam, which fed the mill wheel in a factory downstream. Supplying textiles for Confederate uniforms, the mill was a primary target for Gen. William Sherman whose troops destroyed the facility during the Civil War. The trails along Big Creek are very scenic with the sound of a rushing mountain creek and waterfall. The search will be led by Memphis Russ, a seasoned explorer with intimate knowledge of the Vickery Creek Trials.

**Please try to arrive by 3:15 p.m., so we can start the hike at 3:30 p.m. on the dot :)

    Hi All- I put my name on the waiting list over a week ago. It seems there are still no more stops left. Is it best I do not head up to the hike? How do I know if I made the cut or not? I am new to this meetup site and am not sure how communication for events work. Thanks for mentoring the rookie:)

    Sorry, I cannot attend this time.

    Ok Trekkers> Weather is, to be, awesome! 63* & Sunny! I'm wearing comfortable shorts. We should get about 70 attendees by event time, even though, 95 are currently scheduled to attend. Reminder: This is primarily a social hike! We put a fast scooter in front, Harley me-in the middle & a chatty mo-ped bringing up the rear. So, bring a patient heart to help us all finish, happily, with many new friends! We do stop 4 or 5 times for taking Facebook & Family photos where, especially, scenic backgrounds exist....Russ

    I must say the name for this event great. does it mean I don't have to go workout?

    February 23, 2013

  • Kathie Z

    Looking forward to it. Will sneakers work or do I need hiking shoes?

    February 20, 2013

    • Memphis R.

      Sneakers will work if, the ground is fairly dry. If you enjoy hiking, please acquire some good Ankle protecting Trekker shoes! They grip the slippery leaves safer & protect your ankles from twisting, upon a tumble over trail path stones & above ground tree roots. & Even I stumble, while taking my eyes off the ground to observe this marvelous beauty! :)

      February 22, 2013

    • Steve A

      I am weaing some hiking boots to be safe but will have some other shoes for afterwards
