“After getting my ass in gear, my trip to PA is now posted. Hope to see ya there!”
“I can't find this on the trips page”
“Earth - it's there. Look around the Novemeber time line. I'll do a c/p of the link fer ya:
Hope to see ya there!”
I May Be Away That Thanksgiving Weekend
I may have to crash yer trip.”
I know that the date might not be the best for evertone, but with school and all, it's the only time I can get there....”
“This might work out real nice for me, see if I can pawn off the kids on some poor family member for the holiday weekend.
I'm down as a maybe, a strong maybe.”
“i can't get the c/p info to work. what was the website i need to look at for more info?”
“no prob man - google is my best friend!
This looks like it'd be a good hike, I hope I can make it work out!”
“I'm down as a fairly strong maybe, mostly pending what I can do about escaping family on Thanksgiving. But even I can't escape them, I'm sure I can find a "jump-in" point on Friday morning...
This will make a good addition to my recent "Hike Pennsylvania" initiative...”
If you look at the trail system, there are a couple of good spots to "put in" if you need.”
“very nice trail system, especially in late fall with nice views of the reservoir. don't miss nelse run, great camping where tracy run enters the reservoir. handsome lake and hopewell are very nice campsites, right along the reservoir, pit toilets, water. must self register though and pay $8.”
“I am with PS on that one. I may not be able to get away till Friday either.”
“That's cool too. It's possible that that we could stay another night on the trail too. Maybe relocate up river and camp, and skip the ride to Red bridge. You guys could bring in the beer :) . I've heard that we can really camp anywhere, per the NCT rules.
jmitch - thanks for the info! I'm really looking forward to getting out there!”
“I ain't seen that bull chick in quite some time now and It's high time that I try so we'll put a maybe in on this one fer sure!”
“The trip page has a "gnarly" url. Can someone tidy-up the link?
Thanksgiving may be tough but I've got to pop my cherry with the TT posse some time.”
good to hear.
I can't do any linkie poos, but try changing the date range on this thread. I think Roam did something.
y'all email if ya gots any questions.”
“Hey Pete. I would be fantastic to see you again. I'm a "yes". The only thing that could change that is if whatever job I take won't give me that time off. I hear REI is pretty flexible. :-)”
“so can I put myself down as a maybe? or is this invite only
“mapes - feel free. It's an open thing.”
“I have signed up as a weak maybe. ;)
It will be tough because I will be out of town two weeks before for my sister's wedding, but I would sure love to come out and meet some of you MI folks.”
“Fritz - That's awesome!
Hope to see ya there!”
“Oh, dang, just remembered...I am considering getting some broken bone fragments dug out of my ankle right after my sister's wedding...well, maybe I'll just push that back another two weeks....”
“What's a couple of bone frags anyways?
I Thought I Already Signed Up???
“is the route set yet? i'd come in on friday if that's possible.”
“helinka - A route hasn't been decided just yet. If it's OK, I thinking about waiting a tad more before I get an outline together for a route. There has been some talk about maybe spending two days on the trail instead of just one. In that case, we would prolly be staying somewhere near Dennison run, which is just south of Willow Bay area. I don't have my maps in front of me at the moment.
Another reason is that I'd like to get more of a sence of how many people are going to attend. My thought is that there are many trails systems right off of Tracy Ridge campground. Some might not want to go the same route as others, some might want to bush wack. My thoughts are if we just say "First night, we'll camp here, second night, we'll camp here", it might give a little flexiblity to the hikers.
Don't worry, though. Once the camp areas are set (hopefully sometime in early Oct.), I can suggest a route to you and a "put in" spot for ya.
I hope this answers the question for ya. If not, please feel free to email me at: email@example.com and we can talk further!”
“thanks Q. i can wait.
i guess i'm getting a bit antsy to get out”
“Hey, I completly understand!
I haven't spent a night outside in a REAL long time!
I can't wait to get outside!!”
“I've been wanting to get some hiking in Pennsylvania on the schedule. I'm a pretty sure. Kmart doesn't give us the Fri after Thanksgiving anymore. Need to make sure I have a day to spare. Thanks Q for organizing.”
“My pleasure, D. That area is real nice from what I've read/researched.”
“I think Phantom Soul and myself are getting closer to definites on this, Q. We are in intense negotiations, as we speak, of the hows, wheres and whens of the situation. We already know who we are, so we need not cover that. The whys of the situation, who the hell knows.
Ok, I'm rambling.
Will let you know as further results pour in!”
“mmmm now what to do and where to go while tree is gone...
“TB - LOL!
Mapes - naked pillow fight? Nudie bar?”
“I'm signed up as a maybe for this trip. Will have to see what the family is doing.”
hope you can make it.”
Party On Garth......................Party On Wayne
“Three folks confirmed so far.
Looks like a party to me!”
“Hey Frankie Boo! I am leaning pretty favorably to this trip. Not a definite just yet, but it's looking good!”
“is there a place to jump on to this trip Saturday morning?”
“ANd I am not sure if it will be Thursday or Friday. I believe I am hooking up with Phantom Soul and we will both be there. At least, that's been the preliminary plan. ENS, is there some way you could hook up with us and expand the car pool? Not sure where you are living now...”
“I'll give it some thought. This is the Thanksgiving Trip!!”
“i wonder if it'll snow by then? US thanksgiving seems really late this year
i'll car pool with ya tree. i'm not tooo far out of your way.”
“Look forward to meeting y'all.
BOOddur - Can't wait to see you and BOOddurDog again!”
“Great, Helinka! This may just come together very well! And, likewise, Tara!”
“I'll put myself down as a maybe right now. Tree, when are you guys heading out?”
“I may not be able to go until Friday morning.
I have to talk to Phantom Soul and see what his situation is, too.”
“I have family things on Thursday”
