Aug'18: Marin Headlands Hike

August 26th (Sunday) || Adventures of a Human: Hiking

Hi friends,

Hope you’ve had a fun month so far. I’ve had a great Aug; it’s included taking my first week-long vacation in almost been 2 years; not taking that long between vacations again, and being back in Phoenix, AZ after a few months 💜. Do you have fun travels coming up?

For this month’s hike, we’re going to keep it close to SF which should give us more transport options and get some good weather.

P.S. If this is your first email, here's some context: about once a month I like to get a group of 15-20 friends together to hike. The key idea being: there's something very special about getting everyone together in nature that allows for serendipitous interactions and fun conversations. Plus, I get to see each of you more frequently.

P.P.S. Incase you’d like to join Kevin and I on a 11 mi, 3700ft hike to Mt. Diablo’s summit tomorrow, lmk.
