Hike tomorrow, Sunday Dec 17

posted Dec 16, 2017, 7:12 AM by Doug Gifford
As a reminder,

We're going on a hike in Harriman State Park in NY tomorrow.  The new snow will make the forest all the prettier, we are going to have a great time!

We are meeting at Quick Check at 6:00 AM  (It gets dark early so we need an early start)

Please dress for the weather.  It will be about 20 when we start, and should get up to about 30 during the day
Also bring:
- an extra dry pair of shoes and socks to leave in the car for the ride home
- lunch: Hot lunch will be preferable in the cold.  We will stop and take time to cook lunches, and we will have backpacking stoves to share if you don't have one
- water - even though it is cold out you will need to drink plenty of water, and will need water to cook with 
- hiking sticks if you have them, they will help with your footing on the snow
Please bring a signed permission slip, (attached).  If you are unable to print one out to be signed, I have made several copies and I will have them with me at Quick Check in the morning

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.
