Sounds like a great time. Unfortunately with a toddler in the house I have a hard time making overnight commitments. I will definately be keeping an eye on this thread in case things work out.

Still in the works? on 03/31/2013 18:17:26 MDT Print View

I seem to be joining the game late but wanted to see if you still had a plan laid out and what length of time you had in mind.

I've done a couple of the west coast events, would be great to do something in the east. Would love to drive up from pa!

Hi Sean,

My apologies for using your family name, I was posting on a phone earlier.

Hi GG,


It would indeed be nice to have an east coast meet, I have been at 6 Bpl meets so far this year and they are great.

Throw some trip ideas and dates out there.

Been out of the game for a long time since buying a home. Gotta dust off my "old" SUL gear list and see if I can find everything in the basement and get to the gym! :p

Gents,

Good to hear from you both.

I was going to try to organise it for when the bugs are not so bad, what's it like in August?

Bugs are not too bad one it warms up in the ADK's. June is likely buggy. July is mostly free as temps rise into the 80's. Not real good for hiking, too hot.
Late August, September would be better for heat.

I am looking forward to it. I am usually in the north west areas. Often I will take a trip along the canoe routes, central to northern sections. Seems like every other week I am up there somewhere.

Cheers James,

Hiking in the 80's would be too hot hot for me, I was out West last June and the heat (along with the altitude) messed me up big time.

Folks,

I am going to Lollapalooza the first weekend in August but free the rest of the moment.

Its a 10 hour drive for me so to make it worth while I would like if we did 3 full days starting about 10am or so on the Friday morning.

I am open to suggestions as it will be my first visit, but somewhere on the West would make my drive easier.
