Re: The Dogs of Portland Hikers

I'll forever be indebted to the kindness of Portland Hikers, Grannyhiker and Water (and Bucket!), for making sure that Oscar stays safe, warm, well cared for, and properly hiked out while we're abroad. You are all the best! What an amazing community!

Re: Loowit in a day - July 4th.

Anything else I should know or consider about this hike? There is virtually no shade, so it gets very hot. An overcast day would be ideal for a 360.
