RED (Or Blue Lining for some people) ------ the BLUE ^^^^ís


START TIME AND MEETING PLACES: This week, April 24, 2008, we will be hiking up and around the Hancock Hill area.I still havenít worked out the exact trails yet, but I think we will be gaining a little more elevation.This is where we begin to expand our hikes from flat to flat out tiring.Start time is 5:32 P.M.I am giving everyone an extra 2 minutes to get ready since I have a few new people to meet.


We will begin, again, from the parking area at Houghtonís Pond.To get there, take Route 128 to exit 3 and travel North to the end.Take a right and drive about Ĺ mile to the large Houghtonís Pond Parking Lot.Fred Wason and I will be leading and Holly Makowsky, Cheryl Lathrop (if she graces us with her presence), and Walt Granda will be our co-leaders.I hope we get as good of weather as it has been since Friday.


Oh, one more thing.Iím not extremely picky about having every type of hiking clothing and equipment in the world on our RLBH hikes, however, I am strict about headlamps (you regulars know why), water and rain coats.Please make sure you have these items and please pay attention to the *1 Quart Minimum* of water.I know some of you donít drink that much (someone I know in particular!) but I would rather you carry more and not drink it than not having enough and needing it.


Any questions, call or email me.††
