Day Hike Jan 16 2010

Come join us on a Troop 98 Day Hike into (and out of) Philadelphia! 
It's a great way to start getting in shape (whether for Philmont or anything else), plus we'll get to know Chinatown!

Here's the details:

Start:  At 10AM at the parking lot on the Southwest side of Falls Bridge (cross Falls Bridge [which is on Ridge Ave., at the bottom of Lincoln Drive], turn left onto West River Drive and turn into the first parking lot on the left, facing the river).  Map here:  MAP

We may set up carpools from/to St. Dunstan's after we receive responses (or set up your own with your patrol!).

End:  At 4PM at the same parking lot.

We'll split into crews/patrols for the hike and go down the West side of the Schuylkill River and back up the East side, for a total of about 11 miles.  We'll have time in Chinatown for a little shopping and lunch at Sang Kee restaurant.  If we have time we can tour the Fortune Cookie Factory!

Check the weather forecast and wear appropriate clothes for the hike, including your hiking boots if you're going to Philmont.  Bring rain gear, water, perhaps a small pack, and about $10 for lunch and any additional spending money you might want.
