*CANCELED* Sunday Saunter to Lovely (Mt.) Lincoln

*CANCELED* (see below)

Greetings, O Estimable Finals-Weathering Comrades!

Take a break from studying (and yes, you'll need one) this Sunday with a walk through some gorgeous woods in Pelham to the high point of the granite ridge that forms the eastern border of Quabbin!* You'll get to see nice mosses, the WFCR transmission antenna (yes, really!), nice trees, new friends, maybe old friends...really, what doesn't this trip offer? Oh yeah, and there's a cool view at the top. This trip is great for people new to UMOC or to hiking: it's only about two miles, with only about 250 feet of elevation gain. In other words, it's a perfect break-sized hike!

We'll meet at the UMOC gear locker at 8:30 AM on Sunday, 5/7. The locker is in the photo lab building behind Thompson. It has a beautiful mural on its door. If you’re new to UMOC, plan to come a few minutes early for some SUPER EXCITING paperwork. The trip is $5 for nonmembers.

-closed-toe shoes that can get a little wet (there's a fire tower at the top, so absolutely no sandals, flip-flops, or anything like that—sorry!)
-comfortable layers (it will not be all that warm)
-water (required!)
-$1 for your driver for gas (unless you have a magic carpet to offer us instead)
-a snack, if you like
-a backpack or bag to carry said layers, water, and optional snack

A word about the waitlist: if you're on the waitlist, you're welcome to show up to the gear locker on Sunday, and we'll probably be able to squeeze you in. The only issue will be if everyone who signs up shows up.

Looking forward to Sunday,
Andrew, Corey, Kevin and Alex

*Quabbin views not included, alas.

UPDATE: We need a driver! One of our drivers backed out. If anyone knows someone who can drive for this trip, please have them sign up--thanks!

Hi all:

Alas, I have a serious cold that's pretty much laying me flat, and we still don't have a driver. Between those problems, I'm canceling the Mt. Lincoln hike Sunday. Sorry! Find some woods to wander around in Amherst--it'll be an acceptable substitute.

See y'all next semester,

Unfortunate it turned out this way. See you next semester!
