We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The current weather calls for temps in the upper 50's and rain. 100% chance of precipitation in the AM, but stopping and being partly cloudy. We've had lots of luck on our annual walks, so I'm calling in a chip here with the weather manager and imploring him to keep our positive streak going. That said, we've walked in the rain (really more mist) so be prepared with rain gear.
Map is here - some minor revisions - but it's still in the 11 mile range (we can pick and choose alterations on the path as needed). By lunchtime, we should be around the Polo Grounds, and there are eateries of various sorts along Amsterdam Ave for about 10-11 blocks. We'll find something (I'm sure they'll have food trucks, too).
We're looking forward to seeing everyone! 9 am by Teddy's statue at the Natural History Museum.
