are you coming to the hoggett event?
Our friend and hoggett attendee Jenna Woginrich posted about it on Huffington Post, starting quite a flurry of comments that are worth a read.
We hope to see you tomorrow! If you are coming, please be sure you've written down directions. Here they are again, just to be safe. And please grab a map and be prepared for limited cell phone service. Bring clothes for warm and cool weather, for rain and for sun, and come welcome Spring with us!
If you have not told us you're coming, please email La at goldentree at hotmail.com
