See Your Current Mileage
You can see your current mileage and all the hikes you have attended since the beginning of the Club year (October 1). Click on the Mileage link and then click on the link for Mileage Lookup and follow the instructions. If you would prefer that others not be able to view your mileage or hikes, please advise Karen Zimmerman (kzimm729@gmail.com) and your name will be blocked. The website mileage will be updated every week, however it often takes longer than that to receive and process sign-up sheets. So please be patient if your latest hikes do not appear.
