Email sent to everyone on the roster or waitlist for the snowshoe tour to Diamond Head this upcoming Saturday. If you need to winterize your vehicle (find the tire chains, antifreeze, get sand, etc...) or find, repair, organize winter gear (snowshoes, long johns, shovel, change avalanche beacon or headlamp batteries, dig up extra gloves, sunglasses, thermos, hand warmers, etc... - see red items at http://www.mountaineers.org/seattle/snowshoe/equipment.html for suggestions); now is the time to do it. If your vehicle handles winter driving even moderately well, please consider offering to drive [see http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/winter/ for winter driving tips]. If you discover you can't come, please let me know, so someone else can. Here's some handy links on current conditions you may find useful...
