In regard to our upcoming min-mustoer on Friday 10-26-07....
I plan to walk the new trail on along east side of Burnside's Bridge.
Do you have a specific time for conducting your Final Attack tour?
Given this is new terrain for attendees, there will be avid interest in that tour.
Please pick a time that accomodates your schedule and we'll make the final plans accordingly.
Also make a guesstimate at how much time the walk will take.
