THOG Swap Meetup

  • June 14, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • North Cary Park

This is being rescheduled due to the certainty of lots & lots of rain and also I have a few more people that would like to come and could bring some gear to sell or trade if given more time.  If this interferes with your plans, please update your RSVP.

With so many people carpooling to different locations you are bound to end up with someone else’s stuff or left your stuff in someone’s car that you rode with on a trip.

 

Have you upgraded some of your equipment and would love to pass it on to someone new to THOG?

 

Have you not seen some of your favorite THOG friends in a while or just need to get back into things?

 

This is the event for you. We will meet at Cary Park at 5:30pm and meet behind the restrooms under the large pavilion with the picnic tables. We will have dinner there and show what we have brought “to the table”.

 

At 6:00 pm we will walk the Black Creek Greenway past Lake Crabtree to Airport Lookout. Upon returning, we will stop at a gazebo that overlooks Lake Crabtree to watch the sunset.

Sunsets at 8:29 that night and is a beautiful sunset on a good night. You may choose to head back to the park if you would rather not watch the sunset.

 

What to bring: A little cash if you are looking for something to add to your gear

Headlamp-it will be getting dark upon our return after sunset

Dinner to eat before we start our walk

Water for the walk & a camera

 

When RSVPing…note in your response what you are bringing-if anything. Ie: size 8 hiking shoes, 2 person tent, Betsy’s Chair Cover.

 

Meet behind the restrooms under the pavilion where the picnic tables are. This entire hike is right around 6 miles roundtrip +/-. Depending on the pace of the group we should be departing the parking lot by 8:45-9pm.

    I'm going to stop by and sell a sleeping bag and backpack if that's ok. Thought it was tomorrow for some reason. Was going to RSVP :)

    If I am running a little bit late please forgive me. I have to go pick up JD's tub of gear after work before I come to the park

    Looks like this isn't going to be as popular as I thought. It might just turn into a simple dinner and a walk. I will try it as a SWAP meet again on a Saturday in a few weeks.

    • Betsy B.

      I am picking some gear from JD to bring. It just wasn't as big as I thought it would be so I'm just going to try again in a few weeks and hopefully get a bigger turnout but yes everything is still going on as normal.

      I still want to get rid of my tent, so I will be there.

    JD is donating a whole tub of items that are free that I will be bringing. since he couldn't come I don't know exactly what all is in the tub

      I'll check back later so if you see a 1p size tent in there let me know please! I'll be in the area.

      June 14, 2013

    Kurt this is not as big of a turn in as I thought it was going to be. I'm going to run it again in a few weeks so just keep your eyes open.

  • Kurt

    Anyone plan on bringing a 1 person tent?

    June 14, 2013

  • Betsy B.

    Yes, it is still on.

    Wedding out of town

    Doesn't look like I'm going to make it after all. =( Have fun though!

    Betsy - I tried to get out of my step-son's wedding in Asheville. Duhh. I'm in bigger trouble for trying. I have gear I'd like to drop off with you for distribution based on interest but I won't be able to describe their providence or optimal use. I'm in Cary. Thanks - JD

      Well shame on you for trying to get out of a wedding. :+) email your phone number to me so we can discuss this

      June 12, 2013

    • JD

      When nobody in either family gives the chances at the marriage lasting more than a year, I decided . . . OK, I know. I should . . . [masked]

    Betsy - I'm just one person, but if the rain means a one-week postponement, I can contribute more. I just drove a 26-foot moving van from California and am still unpacking so it'll take a few days to locate stuff. I can bring some stuff tomorrow or 3-times as much the following Friday. Thanks, JD

    Glad it was pushed back a week. I'll try to get my gear together and figure out what to bring by next week.

  • Nancy

    I'm just going to come to hang out and have dinner as I'm still not in shape to walk long distance but it'll be good to see people. =)

    Betsy I have lots of exta gear I just pulled out of storage n it'll take a week to sort out to see what I can donate. JD

    Sounds like fun. I have a large, 8-person tent I got from a neighbor that I never use. I'd like to pass it on to a new home.

    May 29, 2013

    • Bill D.

      I'd like to see your tent. Are you looking for anything as a trade or just folding money? ;-)

      May 31, 2013

    • Sylvia

      I just want it not in my house anymore; since I have never actually set it up, I can't vouch for its condition. Free to a good home!
