“I got that spooky feeling that TTers will once again be hovering by the old chimney and lurking amongst the stands of Norwegian Spruce.
Let the planning of this year's gathering begin!”
“Lets do it.. A one day OLP hike...
“I will have plenty of vacation time built up by then but from here it will take two days to get there.”
“You're camping out for an entire month?”
“Lets do it.. A one day OLP hike...
Oh you nut!”
“Could you make this trip the first weekend in October? I miss it every year because it's always during hunting season.”
“YOu just have to get your priorities straight!!!
“If it ain't hunting season its hockey season.
Perhaps if we imported some black flies we could lure Adirondack Zac out of the state he's in.”
“I agree with zac. but not the killing part(bastard). we miss it every year because we have a Halloween party”
“You all are so unpatriotic... First weekend in Oct is the freedom run..
“I think my head still hurts from the last Masten trip.
It was a kind of chilly last year. Earlier in October would be good.”
“They need to stop making them critters so tasty then DORK.”
“Possum that tasty?”
“go for it and hoep you do not die from meat flu”
“I'll look into early October. I don't see why not. We may be early for the fall colors. I wonder if the bluegrass band will be back this year. That was awesome. Masten really came alive last year. The weekend of the 3rd, I am doing a trail run, so that weekend will unfortunately not work. How about the weekend of the 10th?”
Is that anything like the rockin' pneumonia?”
“Liam will be there this year. It seemed there were a couple kids there last year.
Jackstraw did a great job of planning last years trip. The musical entertainment was awesome.”
“Are you teaching Liam some Beatle's songs?”
“I put the dates as September 25-27, a month earlier than usual. It will still be green in the hollows and mountains around Masten, but the weather should be nice.
How do those nights sound?
Liam loves the Beatles.”
“oh and 32oz, I'll be up for a big dayhike on the OLP because the Megatransect is the following weekend and that would be good training. I don't know about doing the entire loop though. I might be up for doing the Sullivan Mountain/Rock Run half and adding in the cross connector.
I don't want to over do it the week before the big run. Also, so much partying to do, so little time.

“It would be nice if it wasn't so *(%$()%^&@#%#in' cold like last year.”
“It should be quite a bit warmer this year, as the planned weekend is in September, a month earlier than prior years.”
“MarkO, you were entirely too sober, that was your problem.”
“Sept 25-27 is the KTA weekend, in Marienville this year.”
“Yo Spindle, perhaps you could help a home boy with that.
“I could, but not this year. I'll be in CO the two weekends preceding and probably should set eyes on my children sometime in the month of Sept.”
“bring the kids to Masten.”
“Nooooo. Mine are at that impressionable age when they will remember things like the Pennsonator helping people out of their pants and pouring them into their tents. ;)
I like my children holding off on learning such things at least until the early teens.”
“What's a mother to do?”
“Wallow in denial and hope for the best.”
“That's in Africa right?”
How's the agony of de feets goin'?”
“T'ain't just a river in Egypt!”
“sorry.kiddies. lots going on in sept. and besides , its gotsta be in october!”
“I agree it has to be in Oct. just not halloween weekend”
“ok - how about the second weekend in October? Jackstraw has to be there. It's just not Masten without Jackstraw.”
“What about Spindlette??
It just wouldn't be the same without her wisdom..............or uh, wise crackin'.”
“Oct 9 -11
“MarkO, I can sit and talk drunken smack with you any of the first 4 weekends of Oct.
Halloween is of course, out. New brooms and Witch parties and all that.”
“I made it for weekend of October 9-11. Will that work? The weekend before that is the Bald Eagle Mega Hike that crazypace and I signed up for.”
“Bring yore broom, darlin'!”
“I want in.”
“Howz about bringin' that lovely daughter of your's, Gremlin?
Seriously, we could use more pickers........and perhaps someone who can actually sing.”
“darn, I have to back out of this. i forgot I will be in school...unless a ghost kidnaps me that is :)~”
“I'm in if I ain't harvesting potatoes or planting garlic.”
“school on Saturdays?”
Is that for vampires or zombies?”
