  1. I will be in Chiang Mai for your March 4 hike and would like to join you. I learned about you while hiking in August in the Columbia River Gorge in Oregeon. Is there someone to contact when I reach Chiang Mai to check on the time &meeting place for that day’s hike?

    thank you, and hope to be hiking with you soon, Patty Pandzik

    • Hi Patty – As of today the group has nothing scheduled for March. When hikes are offered they are shown on this web site and always give time, meeting place and detailed description for each hike. Hope to see you in March.

  2. Are there any hikes planned for this weekend? 11th and 12th Feb?

    • Hi Mandy – There are no current offers to lead hikes this weekend 11th or 12th February. Any offers will be most welcome.
