We all know most dates are not written in stone. Weather, Fire, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Flood, Tsunami,
or Invasion from Outer Space, etc. Just might change things.
Some will fall by the wayside and others will be spontaneously added by members at our meetings, as is our tradition.

*    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *
 
These (BELOW) are hard dates by group consensus, which are written in stone. This year is another ambitious
schedule that will offer many diverse environments, an aspect we love about the great out-of-doors. A schedule
that will test commitment, vigor, resources, patience, and some days… resolve, but challenges worthy of all.

This year promises to be great fun. See you on the trail,
