Still interested. Just wondering if you've put this on the calendar or the back burner. Could you post an or communicate privately? If this is a go, I won't schedule anything else that day. Thanx.
Sounds fun!! I have yet to attend a “hike/event”, this is closer to home. Keep me posted I’d like to come. Bruce

Is anyone down to plan a camping trip with me? I'm thinking there are a lot of guys in D.C. (and surrounding counties) who would like an overnight camp and hike. thoughts?
BTW I see mention of Mathews Arm CG. It doesn't open 'til May 2 this year. But we wouldn't really need to stay in a campground, or car camp, would we?
I live part time in Luray, just west of SNP, and have backpacked extensively there. I could be of assistance planning an itinerary, and if it's one of the weeks I'm going to be there would definitely want to go myself. I typically do backcountry camping, not frontcountry such as commercial campgrounds, but let's see what others are into. As of now, I'm free every other weekend starting last weekend in April. Just need a couple weeks notice so I can make plans for my dog - he is not a backpacker.

Great idea! Cottage sounds perfect
Thanks for all the feedback! This is still in the very early stages before we make any final plans but it sounds like everyone would like to share a cottage rental. Jon and I have been to Lake Placid many times, have climbed all of the 46ers, and very familiar with the region...we continue to return because it's a magical place!

Tonetom and I may be interested. We're fairly flexible on time, preferably when we have the best chance of good weather. We'd be driving up from DC and may add some extra time to spend in the area while we're there.
I would love to do this & participate; just let me know when. What a beautiful adventure this could be. I'm in!

Hi Shawn, great idea for a backpack, I could do in February, but March I can't. Great idea though. I'm going to 'like' it! And thank you for the idea. Pete
Hey, Zak, I hadn't noticed that it didn't post the date I entered...this site seems to have some quirks with mobile phone access. Anyway, I'm leaving on the 23rd of March. My return date is open-ended, as long as I show up for work on April 2nd. As far as length, it's limited by the small number of access points to the canyon, and the need to keep advancing to the next available water source.

Anyone know of any cool waterfall hikes in socal??>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
The santa cruz trail also has some great views and also river camping with day hikes for people that don't want to go to the backcountry. In the SB front country there is also the seven falls trail, folks can branch off to do cathedral peak (bring a rope for the top for those who aren't mountain goats) and there can be swimming holes. Would need to be in spring though for either of those to have waterfalls. Was just back in Manzana last weekend and the creeks are bone dry.
There are also smaller falls up the Santa Cruz Trail near the Santa Inez River just north of Santa Barbara off Hwy. 154 (Oso Creek through Upper Oso Campground). In Southern California, the waterfalls flow more in the late winter and early spring in conjunction with rainy season. I'm all in.

Road Cycling On the Coast
Date: Region: New England Activity Type: Road Cycling Place: Portland, ME
Interested in developing a road cylcing ride event for those that live on the coast from New Hampsire to Maine.>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
I live in southern NH and would definitely be interested - date and length dependent. If less than 25 miles, that would be great. Lots of commitments and tentative plans coming up so date would definitely play a factor. Look forward to hearing more!!!!
I'd be interested too, if my school schedule allowed me to get away. Ideally, this kind of trip would suit me better in the summer, but that might be an incentive to do it again - and maybe make it an annual event.

I live on the Maine coast but have a vacation home in Andover, Vermont which is right next door to Weston. I'm not sure of gay places, except as Mike mentioned down at Rock River. But generally speaking almost everyone is gay friendly in the area. I have hiked a few of the mountains in that area, but have lots more to explore. Have fun, great area to visit!
Hi, Not sure how far you'll be from Brattleboro, but there's a gay swimming hole at Rock River that's clothing optional. Check it out if you have time and are within close proximity. Mike

Total solar eclipse
Date: Region: California/Hawaii Activity Type: Spectator Event Place: Rodeo, CA
Anyone interested in viewing the total eclipse occurring in Oregon?
>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Eclipse is early Monday the 21st....I've been told it would be best to get settled there at least a day or two before because of the difficulty of finding a place to set up and the possibility of major traffic jams.
Great idea....and I have attempted to plan it with various friends for months. Reality is it is in a week....and flights into the area are booked solid and campgrounds are full. If you have a place secured in the path of totality, and one that is in the dry part of Oregon or Idaho or Wyoming, I would be interested.

That would be right up my alley. I've been to beautiful Jennie Lakes with Great Outdoors LA on a day hike and thought 'why don't we camp here for a night'. However I am leaving for Europe next week and will stay 4 months, it will be November when I get back. I backpack usually in Yosemite, but it would be so nice to do this trip to Jennie Lakes Wilderness. Pete Abbott San Francisco

I am with LikingOutdoors. July or August would work best in terms of the weather. Where in the North Woods are you thinking? Moosehead Lake area?
This sounds like this would be as fun trip. Depending upon the date I would attend and all sounds good although I probably would not bring my 4 wheeler. Perhaps July or August would be best weather wise time for such a trip.

Dirt road Mountain biking
Date: Region: New England Activity Type: Mountain Biking Place: Lynn, MA
This trip idea is for you who likes to ride your montain bike in dirt roads and no looking to climb rocky hills and not looking to ride 50miles in one day.
This is an easy ride, pace and distance is up to the group riding together... >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Definitely interested, but definitely out-of-shape as well, so that easy pace easy distance aspect sounds good. I wouldn't want to slow others down. If there are places for me to rest out as others continue rocking some sterner stuff, I'd come too. Can't do early May, but otherwise my schedule is open.
I'm interested, Just avoid too strenuous terrain.
