We had more and darker hair when we started doing this 20 years ago


Happy 20th!!!

Hike stat, courtesy of Alan: In the history of INCH, there are 46 people who have at least 1 forest, including Russell and Sarbi. If my math is correct, 25 of them were on this hike (over half)! And 2 more (Chester, Janice) were there for the party afterward. That has to be a record.

Milestones:
Craig A's 10th leaf
Iris's 130th leaf
Kathryn's 140th leaf
Peter E's 140th leaf
Russell's 1st forest
Sarbinder's 1st forest
