Hi there. While I won't get to see you on this hike, I'm glad you're a part of this list.
I was planning on having a surprise at the end of the hike, but since you won't be going, I'll just tell you the surprise: It's a waterfall. Please let this be a surprise for the others. Don't tell people going on the hike. I will find out and trace it back to you and have your membership in hiking club challenged in front of the Supreme Court.
Thanks for being part of Hiking Club.
