"I'm planning on driving over Sat morning (promise I'll get up and going early)"
Does anyone else see a difference in determination between the two statements? We will leave soon after 10 AM to go into Cleveland. You are welcome to call any time after 7 AM. Join us if you can. PM if you need the phone number.

Our Hiking Hounds group has parked (barked) in their parking lot to use as an approved starting point for our Sunday morning five milers. There have always been a lot of guests who seemed happy out walking. Two walked off with Savannah throwing her her stick. The hostel is always full when there is a bike or running event in the park, but it is also the nearest place to stay. The Towpath is less than a 1/4 mile away. It is also very close to the ski area and the three waterfalls. The location can't be beat and I read in some review that the breakfast muffins are great. That is all I know.

“Lee Friedlander exhibit at Cleveland Museum of Art speaks volumes”
Saturday, March 21, we meet for early lunch 11:00 AM at the Bo Long Chinese restaurant where many of us met before. This is less than a mile from the Cleveland Museum of Art. Saturday afternoon I would encourage you to hear “Friedlander Talks”, 2:30 PM, Tom Hinson, CMA Curator of Photography. The museum is open until 5 PM.
Bo Loong Chinese Restaurant

Cleveland, OH 44114
A Google maps street view of the front of the restaurant, on the south side of the street. The Marathon gas station at the corner of St. Clair and East 40th is on the left of this view.
We will meet at our house in Bath for pizza, show and tell and talk Saturday evening. 9 AM, Sunday morning, coffee and gab at our house, then off to the Akron Museum of Art for more Friedlander and Edward Weston. The Akron Art Museum opens at 11 AM. There is free parking across the street.
PM me if you are coming. PM me if you need directions to any of this.
Dolly and I are looking forward to your visit, seeing what new work you have done and the museum shows.

Just thought I would mention, of interest to at least one member of the group. as of Sunday there was a small sign attached to the main sign at the Country Maid, home made, ice cream store and "manufacturing facility" (one churn). The add on sign reads, “See you in March”. It does not say what date in March. The driveway is still closed by lock and chain, so I could not stop to inquire. There is fresh snow on the ground today, Monday, March 2nd. I realize this is incomplete information and I should not have posted it until I had more specific information, but I couldn’t help myself. I am looking forward to the peach flavor with real peaches from their orchard myself. Dolly prefers penuche.
“Penuche is a fudge-like candy made from brown sugar, butter, and milk, using no flavorings except for vanilla. Penuche often has a tannish color… Wikipedia

Thanks to John's PM...
I'm tentatively in for the two days of activities. Living North and East, I may just opt to meet you all in Town....
though Paprikash/Chinese food/home made ice cream have some appeal.
Mmmm ..... ice cream .....
I hope the 21st/22nd is late enough in March for ice cream! Maybe someone at Country Maid lurks here and realized they could make a profit that weekend.
Just talked to my buddy Gene. We're planning to be there for 9 o'clock coffee Sunday morning, John. Looking forward to it! Shawn
