    Well it looks like this group and ct prepper has not got a new leader. Sad bc it seems that we were starting to get the ball rolling. If we merge the group and everyone has to make a small payment via PayPal or something. I m sure it would be cheap. Otherwise I will be on the Google site. Stay safe.

      Hey rob I did a hike today at west woods. Was a nice day for it. What and where do you sign up for virtual hangout.

      Download and install google hangouts...sign in with a google account..not sure if you can use other email accounts

    Hey Guys there is a Google Hangout meeting going on now if anyone wants to join please shoot me your email so we can add you. General meetup follow up.

    Well I think Middletown is the best bc I think it is in the middle of the state. I believe we just need some1 to be leader to collect dues and make payments. Set up classes for fun. I think a committee would be easier to delegate duties so not one person is overwhelmed. Depending on what class we want to give can and will dictate where it will take place. We can also send out prepper tips people have read, videos, or reports from websites via email. Maybe a monthly newsletter email with upcoming meetups, tips, news, and shows on geared to prepping. Just thinking of ideas. Feel free to comment good and bad so we can make it better.

      I love the idea jason. We have the perfect website and blog set up just for this. Allowing for every member to be a "leader" and open for anyone to give demonstrations on skills they would like. Can you call me @[masked] I would like your feedback once we review details.

    Ok definitely count me into the next meeting: I'm very much looking forward to it!

    Dina would it be a good idea to have some one act as a temporary group leader for 6 months just to organize the elections and set some short term goals, meeting locations and discussion topics. It could be a great way to kick start our group and formalize a charter. My work schedule is very unpredictable but I would be happy to assist in anyway possible. If the group can propose some large geographic areas to meet I ll make the final arrangements for seating (maybe a diner , hotel or maybe Cabelas in Hartford they have a large eating area and they have literally bus loads of people come in to shop) plenty of good options .

      Rob, I appreciate your dedication and enthusiasm, and this is just my opinion, but as this is just a meetup group, the person who is Organizer (the one who pays) is leader and I'm not sure we need anything as formal as a charter, but that is up to the leadership. I kind of hope that this will be more focused on fun and less on bureaucracy. We might want to have a legal disclaimer, and I can bring one I drafted for another group, but I'm not a lawyer, so we might want to have a lawyer take a peak at it. I think those of us who attended the meeting on Oct 26 figured out that Middletown, Meridan, Southington and Waterbury might be the most central places to meet, do I have that right?

    Did the group choose a new leader? If so please let me know how to contact them. Thanks

    October 31, 2013

    • Dina

      I don't think we did decide, but The Artman said that he would try to contact the 3 leaders currently listed. We have not heard any news yet.

    Would any one like to go up to blue trails in Wallingford during the week and practice some rifle target shooting . I was planning on going Wednesday , it's 27 dollars for all day plus ammo. On the weekend it's 27 dollars an hour.

    1 · October 27, 2013

    • Jason

      Would of? Do they still allow clay shooting. I heard it got shot down bc of neighbors complaining. In winter I go to Bridgeport shooting range. They allow 12gauge shooting with special ammo.

      October 31, 2013

  • Jason

    How did the meeting go are we looking for a new leader or committee?

    October 31, 2013

  • Dina

    COULD NOT FIND ANYONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • The A.

      There were 6 of us at the pavilion at noon till 1:00 or so. Then the fire trucks came in to deal with a brush fire up the trail.

      October 26, 2013

  • Rob D

    Last minute change of plans please let me know how the meet up went

    October 26, 2013

  • Dina

    We stopped to empty water out of the backpack from one of the water bottles that was leaking. Then Mitch saw the smoke pouring over the top of the mountain. Then we heard the fire engines and someone said there was a brushfire. We smelled smoke and just decided to turn around and it wasn't worth the risk. What happened up at the top?

    October 26, 2013

    • Walter

      We saw the smoke....far enough to escape if need be..very nice view

      October 26, 2013

  • Dina

    We went back down when we saw the fire.

  • Jason

    I just got called to do a side job it's in north haven I will try to make it.

    October 26, 2013

  • Dina

    OK, we will be at the Pavilion at 12 noon with hot beverages (and a blanket!) We would like to hike as well, maybe after we chat?

    October 26, 2013

  • Walter

    We can also meet at a Park & Ride and go in fewer cars and chip in (minimizes parking fee). There is one in North Haven off of route 40 @ Devine Street (Exit 1). It is a 6 minute ride from there to the park.

    October 25, 2013

  • Jason

    Also I think John said he lives 2 mins away.

    October 25, 2013

  • Jason

    Well the main trail is exactly 1.6 miles to the castle. I did a fast walk and took nature paths which are more direct but more of an incline. It took me 20mins. However pavilion is close to parking lot and main lot is $9 per car.

    October 25, 2013

  • Dina

    Where exactly are we meeting please? Is there an indoor place where we can sit and talk?

    October 24, 2013

    • The A.

      Might be tough to converse with a dozen people while hiking.

      1 · October 24, 2013

    • Alex

      True...unless we set up points within the trail where we can rest and chat for a few...def keep us warm for a bit...just a thought...I'm open for other options

      October 24, 2013

  • Jason

    If anyone is interested in solar panels I added a topic in suggested. It needs two more people to make it on home page. I might have a job this Saturday if not i will be there. Where at the park the sign the castle.

    Anyone else thinking Zombie Apocalypse?! Otherwise it would be great to learn new things.

      Tell them about plum island and close we are. They could try to weaponize rabies with a flu virus. That always freaks people out.

    Here is my direct email [masked]. Meetup is a pain to login to. If I can contribute $10 to keep the Meetup group going I can do that.

    October 9, 2013

  • Jason

    Well I am also doing a hike this weekend at sleeping giant with another group. But do what ever is best for the group. Like I've pointed out b4 I m only trying to help. I m not trying to be the head.

    September 29, 2013

  • Jason

    Hey is this topic being sent out to everyone in the group? Does it go out to former members? Just wondering more people are not responding.

    September 28, 2013

  • JOHN

    September 28, 2013

  • JOHN

    Sorry Chris but 10/19 is PIT BULL AWARNESS DAY in Ansonia and I have a booth there selling paracord dog leashes and collars.

    September 28, 2013

  • Dina

    10/26 is better for now. Another option might be to have a Skype or google hang out call?

    September 28, 2013

  • Chris

    Does 10/19 work better for everyone?

    September 28, 2013

  • Jason

    Well that sounds good to me too. If I can get a babysitter for my son and don't have any jobs then.

    September 28, 2013

  • JOHN

    OK !!! I AM WILLING TO HELP OUT ALSO. DOES ANYONE HAVE A PLACE TO MEET ??? NO BARS PLEASE

    1 · September 23, 2013

  • Dina

    I'd be happy be the central CT organizer with Jim and whoever else from other areas. I never met Adam, but I hope he had a good life and hope he was prepared to go! How sweet of him to start this group. So yes, I really think we need this group and would be happy to help with planning, as I'm organizer for a few other groups already, I could lend organizer expertise as well as public health and permaculture knowledge.

    1 · September 23, 2013

  • Jim H.

    As an associate leader, I would be more than happy to step up to the leader role. I live in southeastern Connecticut though. What does everyone think about that location?

    September 23, 2013

  • JOHN

    I want to keep this group going? Is there a funeral service for Adam? Probably too late but worth a shot.... Yes, let's all do an outdoor barbecue or some shin dig where we can discuss a new leader.
