    Only 6 of 14 signed up found each other. Need to be more disciplined about confirmations and follow-thru.

    I might be interested in the Howe C. trip..I live in Rotterdam so going to crossgates isn't practical..Does any one live near me? I would also really like to go for coffee or something after. There isn't alot of choices in that area but something is better than nothing..It would be fun to discuss the caverns and get to know everyone better!

      The Staff there suggest that we meet in the main lodge near the fireplace. I will try to have a sign or balloon to help us locate each other.

      We meet at the Penneys lot near where you enter from the Northway. I will try to have a sign on my windshield or a balloon tied to my antenna.

      Howe's cave opens at 9. Top clarify: For sharing rides, meet at Crossgates between 9 and 9:15. Self-drivers meet at Howe's 10:15. That way we can do a cave tour and maybe grab a bite and mingle after.

      You can click on upcoming meetups, open the suggested meetups tab and create a new suggested meetup - then wait for people to sign up. If you have a couple of folks you can ask to pick the event, it will migrate to upcoming once there are 3 participants. You could also try this on one of the many hiking meetup group sites.

    I see people are interested in this - Is a weekend better than a weekday for most people? And if more than 4 people go, anybody else willing to drive another carload? I can take 3 in mine.
