Mike Kretzler - Corsica, The Toughest Long Distant Trail in Europe

Mike Kretzler will tell stories about and show pictures of his recent visit to Corsica and the hike
along the notorious GR20. Corsica is a beautiful and rustic island in the Mediterranean. It's
mostly, but not completely French. The GR20 is a tough route that follows the top of the very
rocky island for over 100 miles. Support for trekkers is provided by a series of rustic refuges and
bergeries, which offer lodging and food along the way. Transport, electricity, and cash are in
short supply along the route, but camaraderie is abundant.

Who: All members and anyone interested in learning more about the Mountaineers are welcome. Free!

What: The Monthly Meet the Mountaineers Adventure Speaker Presentation and Potluck. Bring a dish to share, your own plate and flatware. No paper tossing at our potlucks! Or just come to hear the Speaker at 7pm- your choice!

Where: Friends Meeting House, 3201 Boston Harbor Road. (From I-5, Plum Street, head north, left side, next to Priest Point Park)

When: The first Wednesday of the Month, September to May (excluding November), at 6:00 PM for a shared potluck and socializing hour, followed by an Outdoor Adventure Presentation at 7:00 PM
