Season’s Greetings to all:

Harriman Hikers is a New York-New Jersey singles hiking club. We meet every Sunday for hiking, rain or shine at 11:30 am at Ramapo College of New Jersey in Mahwah, NJ in Parking Lot B-1 South. Complete details on our website, www.harrimanhikers.org

When we say we hike EVERY Sunday, we mean*EVERY* Sunday, just as we have for over 30 years!

Our Annual Sunday after Thanksgiving Hike/Feast was once again a BIG SUCCESS! We were very fortunate to have a simply gorgeous day on Sunday, Nov 26th, 2006 for the Annual Sunday after Thanksgiving Hike/Feast!

As is customary we made sure we got a group photo- see it on our homepage www.harrimanhikers.org. Eventually (along with the current backlog of hiking photos that need to get uploaded) we will add some photos from the Thanksgiving Hike to our photo gallery.

Dont be a shut-in this winter! Cold weather should not hamper you from getting out to stay fit, enjoying ALL of nature’s seasons, meeting new people- and being comfortably warm and dry doing it. Please have a read over our Harriman Hikers Guide to Winter and Cold Weather Hiking and join us in the great outdoors this winter!

In December, there are several events in addition to our regular Sunday hikes, planned privately by members and friends of Harriman Hikers, that may be of interest to you:

SATURDAY HIKE DEC 23RD LED BY ED BURDZY
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
The following 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 following 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.

Ed Burdzy will lead a hike on Saturday, December 23rd 2006. Destination
to be determined by Ed, day of hike.

Meetup for Ed’s hike on Saturday, December 23rd 2006 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

Hikers in good physical condition are welcome to join Ed’s hike. If you have hiked with the Harriman Hikers and can handle the usual 7-8 miles of hiking over hilly, rocky terrain in warm weather, then you are a likely candidate for Ed’s Saturday, December 23rd 2006 Hike. During cooler weather, but during daylight savings time, Ed’s hikes tend to be a bit more ambitious at times, but since we will be back on Eastern Standard Time in December, hours of daylight will dictate that Ed’s hike will be more akin in length to regular Harriman Hikers hikes of 7-8 miles.

Contact Ed Burdzy 973-471-0492 for questions and more info.
