Trip Reports

September 28 Upper Platte

 | Published on 9/28/2015
Amazing weather: shorts and tee shirts.  Some of us met for lunch at Rico's, and the others met at the access on US-31 - where we had to work around the road construction equipment that was blocking the path.  No mishaps, record time.  People: Kris Earley (who said she always is), Linnaea Melcarek, Bob Buryta, Allen Hoeft, Jill Zofia, John & Winston Walton, and John & Lois.  Special thanks to those who helped with the shuttle: John W, Bob, Allen, Jill and Kris.  No mention will be made of the car keys left in the shuttle vehicle.  It was no big deal, just a bit more time spent outdoors on a gorgeous day!
