Meet before sunrise, done before noon, why so early?

A.Personal preference.
B. Some people are married and have kids and want to also spend time with them. Not everyone is a single dude 'on their own time'. Or other hobbies. I'm also a big time morning person. I wake up at 545 AM( or earlier) every AM 365 days per year and it's the best thing I've ever done.
C. To make you mad. (Kidding)

Well, I was just wondering. I'm a mid-day to late afternoon and evening hiker. I can be a morning person, but in Spring, not now in the bleak December. It's well know that ravens frequent chambers in the early hours of the morning, this time of year.

I'm interested if a few members that I haven't met commit.

Otherwise I'll probably stick with my yoga group. They're competitively slow so it would be nice to get in a more normal pace hike.

If Crzy4AZ abandons Instagram and her children for a few hours to go hiking in the otherwise unknown MSP, then I too will go to great lengths to join the parade!

I should commit to this, just to see who cancels. Jason, perhaps?

@Crzy4AZ

What about @mazatzal ? He does long McDowell hikes all the time. When I write a name with @ - - are they "tagged" ?? I don't think so b/c not showing up bold. But I wrote PM to all above to turn the crank and see if we can squeeze a couple more hikers onto the maybe/yes list!!!! :DANCE: :pray: :pray: :pray:
