Yes, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!

If anyone would like a ride up from Santa Cruz, let me know -- I'm on the west side and have plenty of room in my car.

Had such a good hike yesterday! Thanks to all who came out.

Who's up for a November hike? And where do we want to explore next?

Here's the view from the top:

I'm definitely up for a November hike! That was so fantastic, everyone.

Also -- if folks are looking to get some more frequent informal hikes/walks along the ocean/etc going, feel free to PM me. I'd love to get low-key hikes/walks going in the evenings or weekends, and am happy to do some texting/emailing to make it happen. :)

Hello all! We are on for the next hike Sunday, November 11th at 10am at Big Basin. We will be meeting at Park Headquarters and hiking the Sequoia Trail, an easy four mile loop.

There are a couple of us who have State Park passes, so we will be doing some coordinating of carpooling to avoid the $10 parking fee. PM me if you're interested.

Hey guys! Newbie to the forum, although I've been reading MMM for some time. It's good to meet you!

I would love to come to the hike on Nov 11, but I have a favor to ask of you.

On the plus side, I don't have a car, choosing to bike pretty much everywhere. On the minus side, there's no easy way to bike or bus over to Big Basin from the downtown area, so I'd like your help in finding a carpool. I'm happy to chip in for gas and/or the parking fee, and would prefer to ride with woman or family. Thanks!

Hi, it would be great to have you join the hike! I can give a ride from the Scotts Valley transit center. If you can't find a ride from downtown this is an option if you can bike or bus to the SV transit center. I'm female and will most likely have another female friend in my car as well.

Yes, thank you @AlwaysBeenASaver, I'll plan on it (unless offered an option directly from Santa Cruz). What time shall we meet?

We're meeting at Big Basin at 10 and it takes around 40 minutes to get there from the SV transit center.  Not sure how often buses run or what time they would get there, let me know, I'm flexible on pickup time. I'll PM you my name and cell #.

Big Basin hike has been canceled due to smoke and bad air quality. Letís brainstorm for January!
