ber as the weather permits. These events will take more of the “coffee run” format where there will be no prior registration and whoever wants to show up will just show up on the day of the event. We will make it a shorter run which will culminate somewhere that you can either join us for a bite to eat or not...your choice. We wanted to give this a try for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we think club members would like to get out and drive their cars more while the weather permits and be able to do so with other club members who en- joy the same. Secondly, perhaps some people would prefer a shorter event that would free up the rest of their day for other things. And finally, maybe some members just were unable to join us on our other treks due to other commitments and just want another opportunity to participate. In any event we are going to give this a try and see how it is received. The details of these cof- fee runs will appear on the website as they are planned and we will supplement that with a mail blast. Then, if you want to participate, all you have to do is show up at the appointed time and place, sign a waiver, participate in a short driver’s meeting and off we go!
Now that school is back in session and we are officially into the fall season I know certain things are changing. We can’t turn on red lights be- tween 8:00 and 4:00 near schools and the leaves on the trees are turning colors. This is the time of year though that Sue and I love to go on long drives in the country. We don’t always need a destination, we just like to get out and drive and take in all of the beauty that our surrounding en- virons provide. And anytime the temperature permits we will put the top down and breathe the crisp air knowing that the harsher weather will soon be here.
So as always, while the weather still allows us these opportunities, just out there and keep on trekkin’.

It is the last day of September and Sue and I just completed another practice run for the upcoming trek. We returned from Hilton Head yesterday where three plus rounds of golf did in my already sore back so I had an 11:00 appointment with my chiropractor. So when the alarm went off at 5:30a.m. we were quick to get out of the house and get on the road knowing we had a long drive ahead of us. It was still dark when we began the route but as the sun began to rise we were already well on our way. The colors of the rising sun were breathtaking but everywhere a low ly- ing mist blanketed the waters and grounds we passed creating an eerie feeling worthy of any horror movie. Throughout the entire route we spotted deer everywhere and the final sighting count was 18. Thankfully, all of them survived our passing, as did our car, without incident. As of this moment there are still a few slots open for both the day trek component as well as the overnight portion so if anyone wants to make a last minute decision to join us, please contact me right away; we will do our best to fit you in. The flyer can be found in this issue of the Post as well as on line. (Pages 19 and 27)
Although this will be the last official trek of the season, Sue and I are planning to do at least one or two informal events in November or Decem-
