Here is the kind of email that just makes me happy. It is from one of the parent chaperones to several of the others. (For the big junior high orienteering field trip that is finally happening on Friday.)
Hello Pond People -- we have a "Pond Transition" set-up to plan. Who can still come to the Fells early? who wants to ride together? anybody have a wagon that they can fit in their car/van? would it fit in mine?
I'm proposing that we meet at 32 Garfield Street at 7:15am on Friday (ouch) and, of course, it would be good to be in as few cars as possible. Leaving at 7:30 - gets us to Fells at 7:50or so - which leaves us about 30 mins to haul & set-up and then get back to parking lot for Barb's chaperone orientation at 8:30. We are about a 7min walk from the parking lot - 3-5minute walk from the drop-off point.
Please let me know your availability and how you want to get there -- looking forward to being in the woods on Friday.
