0500 at Lynnwood Transit Center, Lot A

Long, strenuous hike. Per WTA's write-up the trail may be closer to 6 miles, the last mile or so can be hard to find.

Start out low in the deep dark forest and climb to high meadows and views. Bring lots of water and strong legs.

My goals for the trip are as follows:

1. Be safe.

2. Have fun.

3. Make it to the top of Huckleberry Mountain(or as close as we can safely get)

4. Learn something.

My expectations for participants are as follows:

1. Stay with the group.

2. Be physically fit. This is a tough hike.

2. Have the necessary gear to be safe and comfortable and know how to use it.

3.  Participate in group discussions and decision-making regarding route selection and turn-around time.

4. Voice any concerns about trail conditions, terrain choices.

5. Be open to learning.

My Style:

1. I love puns and jokes and riddles and words.

2. I am easily distracted by nature.

3. I like a good workout but I also like to have a good time.

4. I sometimes take a bit to respond because I'm mulling over my response. If I don't respond to you right away it's because I'm thinking about your question or comment.

5. I'm curious about people, so I may ask you questions about yourself.

6. I enjoy telling stories.

7. My leadership style is flexible, usually it's fairly relaxed. I'm also a big believer in servant leadership.
