I never want to see a day
That's over forty degrees
I'd rather have it thirty,
Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

There are a couple of folks who will take some time getting there so 1PM satrt at the parking lot would work. Then there is a hike and the shortest route is XX minutes long? Then should we do lunch and then a tour? Some folks will probably get there earlier and do a longer hike.
Or would a planned start at the parking lot at noon be okay? Mark?
It would be great to do the BBQ option, but then it becomes a big deal and everyone's timing may be a bit different.
- arrive at parking lot
- walk up
- hang out together
What think ye?
What time are we planning to gather for lunch/tour (in other words to be at the OBS) and which order do we want to do them in? The hike from the parking lot to the OBS via the Red Dot trail shouldn't take more than 1/2 hour.
My suggestion is that anyone interested in doing a longer hike meets at the Trailside Museum parking lot 2 hours before whatever the planned starting time for the rest of the group is. We will hike up and do the Skyline Trail North/South loop and meet the rest of the group at the OBS.
Keep close to Nature's heart...
and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

Karen and I could probably be at the parking lot for 12 or a little after. Remember we are doing the road so we can meet whoever wants to do the road with us by than and most likely be at the Obs by 1 to meet everyone else
It probably makes sense to say meet at the Observatory at 1:00pm. Then those who want a longer route can do that.
Here is a map http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/trails.../blueHills.pdf
I guess that is the plan They are sending me detailed info and map about the road

If your not a OBS member yet then what are you waiting for
Will anyone be doing the Red Dot Trail? We were thinking of getting there early to check out the museum and doing the Red Dot to meet everyone at the OBS for the tour at 1PM.Are we doing picnic on the summit after the tour?
