Andrew filed this report of the Moraga Road to Reservoir Rim Trail hike:
for those preferring to stick a little closer to home this weekend, check out Andrew's hike at one of my favorite spots -- Inspiration Point. Andrew says of the upcoming Nimitz Way (Paved) Trail - Inspiration Point hike on Sunday, June 22 at 9:00 AM: "I will be hungry after the hike. Pizza by the slice in Orinda Village?".
Member's Only Email ListsFinally a word about the Member's Only Email list. Though I haven't had the time to fully read all the details regarding the most recent postings, my initial reaction, however, is they either violate our rule about promoting fee based hiking opportunities, or are in a grey area at best. So to play it safe I have temporarily disabled both email lists from further postings for now. I simply don't have the time right now to deal with the flood of emails and the subsequent unsubscribe requests that past experience has proven time and again will result
Remember that these lists exist to allow you to exchange questions and ideas with other members related to hiking, especially topics related to hiking in the local area. Such emails should not, however, be used to promote anything that charges a fee or asks for monetary compensation, regardless of the intention. If such postings were allowed, then the email list would turn into nothing more than another opportunity for spam, which would cause most of the membership to flee, ultimately rendering the list ineffective. Remember these email lists exist for your benefit. Please use it wisely and question every email before hitting the send button. If your email asks for money (or refers to a document or website that ultimately asks for money), then it is not considered appropriate.
Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
As always, you'll find more details about each of our upcoming hikes, including starting time and directions to the trailhead, posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. In the event of rain, please check with the hike leader as to whether the hike will proceed as planned.
Happy Trails! :)
