John and Rita Gabrovsek joined the Cleveland Hiking Club in 1979. Rita is from Germany, where hiking is part of the culture. John learned about the club when some hikers were walking through Cleveland Heights near their home. The Gabrovseks describe favorite hikes and trips, hike leaders and other members, and New Year's parties at the club's camp. The club was much smaller when they joined.
