Last time I hiked Dolly Sods I left being carried on a stretcher, but I can't wait to go back!

Damn right, Steve!  :o
Congrats on the grand baby!

Btw, from talks we had on the winter day hike, it looks like we're planning on Dolly Sods for the spring trip. See you there!

I missed the Fall trip (First grand baby was born) but am planning on the Spring Outing. Someone else needs the Chicken candle...

Due to the extremely cold winter we've had so far and the opportunity to see some pretty cool ice formations, we are going to move our winter hike to Hocking Hills. We'll meet at Old Man's Cave on the 27th at 11am and head out from there.

Post hike, we'll stop at Brewery 33 in Logan for a sampling of their brews and, if anyone is interested, we can hit Millstone BBQ for dinner. See you soon!

BTW Traction devices for your boots--like Yaktrax--are highly recommended.

Our winter hike 2017 at Clifton Gorge was a ton of fun so we will do it again in 2018. The date will be Saturday, January 27th.

Short, sweet, and to the point. Love it.
Iím in!

Our winter hike 2017 at Clifton Gorge was a ton of fun so we will do it again in 2018. The date will be Saturday, January 27th. We will head to the Athens area and hike some of the trails in Strouds Run State Park and Sells Park. Sells is an Athens city park with connecting trails to Strouds. There is no shortage of nice trails in this area so we'll have a lot to choose from. Afterwards, we'll go to Jackie O's for lunch and beverages. Times, directions, etc. will be posted in January. Hope to see a big turnout!

Backpack Trip Talk / 2018 Outing Dates
« Last post by BPO on December 05, 2017, 07:06:57 PM »
Our Spring outing will be held the last weekend of April. The dates are 4/27 - 4/29.
If there is enough interest, it would be great to go back to WV or even Red River Gorge. We will discuss after the first of the year.

Our fall outing will be held the third weekend of October. The dates are 10/19 - 10/21. No destination at this point.

I'd like the trips in 2018 to be true backpack trips. No tree houses or covered wagons.  ;)

Correction - Saturday night's camp is very near the river and does not require a mile long hike to reach as I previously mentioned in the itinerary post. If you have a dry bag you'll be fine with that. Packs shouldn't be needed.

FYI - Muck boots or some kind of mid-calf waterproof footwear is recommended for put-ins and take outs.
