Hey there Trailmen-
Guess what?!? I forgot that September is one of those odd months that show up on the calendar from time to time. It has five Saturdays! And you know what that means. There will be no meeting this Saturday. Hope you have fun things planned.
Please watch this space for more information about next week’s plans to attend Living History Days at Leonard’s Mills. Until then,
Here are the details for the Return to Bald Mountain hike.
First, please ensure that you have a working flashlight or headlamp along with the things that you would usually bring on a hike (see list below). This hike is going to start in the evening and end in THE DARK.
Second, bring a bag lunch/dinner to eat when we get to the top of Bald Mountain. This meal may serve as a snack or as dinner-your choice. 🙂
Meeting Time: We will meet at the Dysart’s at the intersection of Rt 46 and Rt 1A at 5 pm on Saturday, September 22nd.
WE WOULD LIKE TO LEAVE BY 5:15.
We should be back at Dysart’s around 9:30 pm.
Meeting Place: We are going to meet at the Dysart’s at the intersection of Rt 46 and Rt 1A. From there, we will decide how many vehicles we are going to take to trail head at Bald Mountain.
Directions to trail head: From Dysart’s, we will take the Upper Dedham Rd. to Bald Mountain Rd. Bald Mountain should be easy to find because it’s right off of Bald Mountain Road in Dedham. The trail head, which at first looks more like an access road, is on the left near the junction of Bald Mountain Road and Johnson Road. There is a farm on the right at this junction. We will follow the wide “trail” or access road to the base of the mountain, ignoring a few smaller trails, and follow the wide ski trail up, following the power lines.
Here are the things that you will need:
- A BAG LUNCH/DINNER
- A thermos with a hot drink (optional)
- A WORKING FLASHLIGHT OR HEADLAMP
- any weather appropriate clothing you may need
- a blanket (if you think you may get cold)
- a small bag / backpack to carry your supplies in
This is just a reminder that we will not be meeting this Saturday (9-22) morning. WHY? ‘Cause we are going on a hike this Saturday evening!
We are going to meet at the Dysart’s at the intersection of Rt 46 and Rt 1A at 5:00 pm. We would like to leave for Bald Mountain by 5:15 pm.
More information about the hike will follow tomorrow or Wednesday.
With some many of our Trailmen (young and old) attending Calvary Chapel’s Men’s Conference, we decided that it would be best to cancel this Saturday (Sept 8) meeting.
If you are interested in attending the Men’s Conference, here are a few details.
Conference Times — 8 am till 9:30 am — registration and fellowship;
9:30 am till 4 pm — conference
Cost — free
Lunch — bring something for the grill. If you don’t have a grill, don’t worry, someone is always willing to share
Conference Location — Calvary Chapel — Rt. 15, Orrington, ME
Stay tuned for more information about September’s event. It is going to be a hike on the 22nd.
