For those that don't follow the Forum; Kurt and myself will be conducting our First Hike of 2009 tomorrow, Feb. 28th. It will be held in Weiser State Forest. Which is in Berks & Schulkill counties. It's open to all that wish to join us. If interested you can contact me at: OR

The hike will take place Rain or Shine , Hot or Cold so if your thinking of joining us; be prepared and come prepared.

Our next planned Hike will be on March 21st. At Michaux State Forest, this will be an over night hike. We're planning on hiking in till we find a likely spot or till we're tired of hiking. Set up camp, spend the night and hike out the next day. This will be a first for us, although we've been gearing up for it a while now, buying back Packing Tents , Sleeping Bags and other lighter equipment which we'll need to make are stay in the Forest comfortable. This type of hike may not be for everyone. But it's Time to get back in Tune with Nature Folks.
You can contact me for more info on this hike at the above e-mail address's or follow the planning of both hikes on the Forum.
