Jan 6, 2019 Dayhike at Camp Tuscazoar 1:30 pm Joe R/Dan A.
__Hey TWC Hikers – Supposed to be a nice day Sunday, so how about walking off those Christmas cookies! I talked to Camp Tuscazoar and they are fine with us hiking there although they have a group clearing out about 12:30ish, so they asked is we could start our group at 1:30 to give the 1st group time to clear out. This hike was scheduled for last June but canceled due to the heat. We discussed doing it again but then it was too stormy! Hope this third time is a charm! Might be a little muddy. Some hills, so sticks would help
