Harriman Hikers News April 2007

Spring is here!

Time to put away all those cold weather clothes and start lookin’ good for your Spring and Summer wardrobe. What? Of course- no better way to trim off all that Winter bulk than a hiking regimen!

We’ll cover Sunday!

As you might know, Harriman Hikers meets to hike each and every Sunday, rain or shine, sun or shower, year-round at 11:30 a.m at Parking Lot 1-B, South Lots, Ramapo College of NJ, 505 Ramapo Valley Road (Route 202 North), Mahwah, NJ 07430. MAPS

Established 1974, we are one of the longest-existing outdoor singles groups in our area. When we say we are there every Sunday for hiking, we mean it.

BTW, Does anybody remember hiking by this sign last summer?

Harriman Hikers Wilderness Message Board

Come to think of it, it probably wasn’t last Summer, it was actually probably around APRIL FOOL’S DAY! har, har!

Be assured, tho, there is no kidding that we have been hiking as a group every Sunday for over 30 years- b there or b L7!

News From Gene

Many of us who have been with the group for a while are on Gene’s email list, to which he sends updates of his hiking adventures in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and as such, received his recent missive describing the first hike of his 2007 hiking season as well as some photos of his adventures.

If you are relatively new to our group, then you may not ever have had a chance to meet Gene Doleschal, our Hike Leader Emeritus and may not be on his email list.

Fear not, we have posted his letter and photos on our website for all to enjoy!

If you would like to get on Gene’s email list, email us and we will gather up all the requests and send them to Gene in one batch.

Leah’s a Grandmother!

Leah Schwartz, a long-time Harriman Hiker, is now a proud GRANDMOTHER. Leah’s daughter Danielle gave birth to Lucy Madison Brennan, 6.7 pounds, March 17th, 2007. Congratulations to all!

We hear Leah’s already shopping hiking boots for that baby!

Saturday Hike in April

Ed Burdzy will lead an additional hike Saturday, April 21st, 2007.

The hike is in addition-to and does not replace or affect Harriman Hikers regular Sunday Hike. Harriman Hikers meets every Sunday for hiking, rain or shine, year-round, as we have for over 30 years.

The hike is coordinated privately by Harriman Hikers Hike Leader, Ed Burdzy. Please contact Ed by phone 973-471-0492 for questions or more info about this hike.

Hike destination will be determined by Ed, day of hike.

Meetup for Ed’s hike on Saturday, April 21st, 2007 is as usual for “Ed Hikes”, 10am in the south (public) end of the parking lot at the Mason Jar Restaurant on Route 202 in Mahwah, NJ. Map

Ed’s Saturday hikes can be more ambitious and longer (8-12 miles or more) than Harriman Hikers’ Sunday hikes. You must speak with Ed first if you have not hiked with Ed before, spoken with him about joining his Saturday hike and/or have any reservations about your abilities as a hiker. Contact Ed Burdzy 973-471-0492 for questions and more info.
