Turkey Trek, Snow Edition!

It snowed all day in Bangor, and it's still coming down. I'd say there are about 8 inches of snow.  Here is the latest update about the plans for tomorrow's Turkey Trek "trail run."

It may look a little different this year, but we are still on, and please consider coming out and joining us.   You are welcome to come and cross-country ski, snowshoe, hike, or if you don't mind your feet getting cold, run.  Come on... be adventurous!  Be tough!  Be cool!  I'm bringing 60 cups of hot coffee donated by Tim Hortons.  Don't make me drink it all.

Please don't forget that one of the reasons we are gathering tomorrow is to donate food to the Good Shepherd Food Bank.  If you decide not to come, please consider joining our virtual food drive which you can accomplish right from the comfort of your warm, dry home.  It's really easy to donate.  Just go to The Good Shepherd Food Bank website  where there is a headline for the Virtual Food Drive and hit the "donate" button.  Thanks to the generosity of the many donors and the efficiency of food banking, a $1 donation to the Food Bank provides $8 worth of food for Mainers facing hunger.    So a $10.00 gift equals $80 in food.  Wow.

That is something you can feel good about as you unbutton your pants to make room for pie.

No seriously, think about the bounty of food we will all be serving up tomorrow afternoon, and you'll feel better about your meal if you share the love with those less fortunate.
Whether you join us tomorrow for some time in the snowy woods (bundle up!) or not,  Happy Thanksgiving!

I suck but I don't think we are going to make it in the morning. I don't have snowshoes (or xcountry skis, although I want to get some eventually). I will donate, however.
Next year, next year there will be no snowstorm and I will also not have a three week old baby like last year. :)

Is the trail packed down at all? I don't have snow shoes or skis either :(
