It's unlikely, I'm afraid. I'm taking a much-needed week's holiday starting today, and am off to the east coast tomorrow in my car. My travel plans are open-ended, so I don't know whether or not I'll be back by Saturday, but I hope the trip and weather will be good enough that I'm not.

Oh, too bad. Do let us know what you see and do on the coast though as I am planning a similar trip at the end of the month (though only for 3 days or so).

I loved this hike when we did it last time! It's on Saturday this week, so no-can-do :(

BTW, I'm leaving in two months, we'll have to get together before that, fellow tree huggers. :banana:

Not a silly, but a sensible, question. For this hike, we won't go. It's just not possible in the rain, or even after a rain, as you have probably guessed already.

For others, we sometimes still go, depending on the trail. Often you can carry an umbrella, or wear a raincoat. This time of year you have to be careful though because the rains or torrential and can cause floods or landslides. On the other hand, it is also warn enough that getting a bit wet doesn't matter much.

With the weather report the way it is, it is very unlikely this hike will happen. I will post the final word Friday night. If the weather is still questionable I might change the plan to a Muzha hike where the trails are safe even in the rain.

BTW, welcome to the club.

Well, the forecast is too lousy. No way to do this one. Let's hope for next week. In any case, now Ironman can join us.

Any alternatives for tomorrow?

Or is the weather going to be really bad?

Oh 31 is a nice temp as long as you aren't out on a ridge the whole time (oh wait, Wuliao Jian is a ridge hike).

Anyway, the weather bureau was forecasting up to 2 inches of rain tomorrow.

Okay, we are going to try again this Sunday June 18. I believe the weather will cooperate.

We'll want to meet in Sanxia around 10. Those coming from Taoyuan can go directly to Sanxia and meet us at the traffic triangle just before the turnoff for Belgian Pie. Those of us coming from Taipei will probably have to take the MRT out to Yongning Station and then a cab.

I know the rats are in. Who else?
