This adventure starts out with everyone waitlisted, and then as drivers sign up, folks will get off the wait list.
WITHDRAW/CANCEL-PARTICIPATION DEADLINE is the same as the posted signup deadline for every club adventure unless otherwise noted. If you are on the wait list and make other plans, please withdraw ONLINE (otherwise if you get off the wait list last-minute and don’t show up, and someone else could have gone in your spot, that’s a problem).
Drivers needed and greatly appreciated (~80 miles total). Drivers please arrive with completely full tank of gas; you’ll score a filled-up tank up on return plus a 30% TIP. The more drivers, the bigger we can grow the size of this trip to let in any waitlistees. Thanks!

Meeting / departure location is: on Jefferson Park Avenue (JPA) at the Free Trolley bus stop just before that bus turns right onto Maury Avenue. If you’re on JPA facing Fry’s Spring Station restaurant (which is on the NE corner of JPA and Maury), we’re meeting at the bus stop / grassy area that’s on JPA to the right of that restaurant.
This trip’s leader is a Wilderness EMT and Geo Medic, is the instructor of the Wilderness First Aid & CPR courses posted in the club, and will be happy to help anyone in need.
