Yesterday we reached a new milestone for the group -- we broke the 1,000 member mark! Yep, that's right, today we now officially have over one thousand members receiving this email! And we are still growing! In the past month, over 50 people have logged on to our website to join the mailing list.

Last week I mentioned our new away trip for 2007 - Pinnacles -- slated for the weekend of March 31/April 1. Pinnacles is only a couple hours away (at least the way I drive!) from the East Bay, so this can be a day trip, returning home afterwards, or an overnight camping trip, with campgrounds right down the road from the park entrance. Totally your choice. You'll find more details now posted on the website regarding the upcoming trip. Additional details to follow, so stay tuned!

Special thanks to Wayne for leading a fun and challenging hike last Sunday. It was very similar to our Table Top hikes of the past, but Wayne found a way to turn it into a loop hike rather than the standard in and back routine. That's the beauty of Briones ... lots of trails and routes to explore! Thanks, Wayne!

This Sunday the game plan is to hike at Castle Rock (in Walnut Creek), but that's pending decent weather conditions. Rain will cancel. A drizzle might get me out but anything more will cancel the hike for me. Phone my cell phone in the morning (after 9AM) for an update as to whether the hike is still on or not if the weather is iffy. (My cell phone number is posted on the website.)

You'll find driving directions and other details about this upcoming hike posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. Remember, RAIN CANCELS.

Happy Trails! :)

Happy Trails,
