PSC Hiking Club

Hi PSC friends,

We had a lovely hike in Edgewood a few weeks ago.

Our next hike will take place Sunday, May 7. We will meet at 3pm in Pacifica at Mori Point: http://www.parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/mori-point.html

There will be wild flowers and beautiful views of the ocean.

It's a beautiful place, only 30 min or so from the San Mateo/FC area. I will provide more specific information closer to the time.

Would be helpful to know as we get closer who plans to attend so we know how many people to expect. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need more info/have questions. More background on the PSC hiking club is below:

Dear PSC members,

We would like to invite you to a new initiative called PSC Hiking Club. Led by Dan and Adina Epelman and their kids Lia, Noam and Ayelet the idea is to provide an opportunity for families with kids to enjoy the outdoors.  The idea is to turn hiking into an enjoyable experience for the whole families- something that happens naturally when kids hike with other kids.

How does this work:
We meet in the afternoon on a Sunday once a month. The hikes will be relatively short (2-3 miles at most) as the idea is to build up the appetite and enjoyment slowly. The overall duration of the activity is 3:00-5:30pm (or 2:00-4:30pm when the days are shorter) which includes hiking, stopping for breaks, having a snack at the end and so on.

Who is this for: 
In general it's open to anyone who's interested. It will be particularly enjoyable for families who have kids aged 4-9.

If I am interested, do I have to come every time?
No, not necessarily. We know there are other things going on in your lives. Somewhat regular attendance, however, helps build the social element of the community and kids' appetite for this.

How much effort will this involve in terms of planning and so on?
Dan and his family will plan, announce the details and lead the hikes. Your job is to show up on time, have plenty of snacks for your family, as well as the right "gear" - hats, sun screen and so on.

Where will the hikes be?
Normally on the peninsula, perhaps just over the San Mateo bridge and maybe a bit in the South Bay. The overall idea is to drive less and hike more.

I usually go over some rules before we start, which seems to be a big hit with kids and adults alike – no touching of plants, no fighting, no whining….:)

Do I need to RSVP each time:
It would be helpful to let Dan know by Sat night so he knows how many people to expect and whether to wait for anyone running late.

How can I learn more about this:

You are welcome to call Dan at (650) 704-5507 or email him at: danepelman@gmail.com
