    @edmund?? Please explain your statement that site sharing is not possible ... Unless you are a lady. Frankly that is really creepy and im sure that is not your intention so an explanation may make some of my female members feel better...please respond...

    Looking forward to camping in the Spring with such a sturdy bunch. You do know you are going to freeze your a***s off this weekend?

    Jeanine,
    Like I said, it's no big deal. I forgot mine on a two-day backpacking hike two months ago, and now my one-burner is in my back pack on a permanent basis. With the chill ..hot food is a must. Have fun.

    October 29, 2013

    • Denise

      Liam its truly appreciated thanks for reaching and hopefully we will meet in the spring when the season opens again!

    Jeannine,

    If no one comes through for you I can drop off a one-burner or two-burner stove with fuel. It's no big deal, I live ( at the most )10 minutes away. I'm obviously not joining the camp out ( too close to home and other plans) but whatever I can do to help. I love backpacking and camping, so I'll make it one of these days. Stay warm.

    October 28, 2013

    • Denise

      I already responded to Jeanine thanks for the offer we will have at least two to eight stoves as always no worries

    Hi gang. I don't have a cook stove - does anyone have one I can share? I am happy to chip in for fuel. No worries if not

    October 28, 2013

    • Denise

      I will have a coleman stove with that you can use no problem. See you soon!

      Hi Jessica

    • Denise

      Hi jess that sounds great just be sure to sign up and pay the member fee and we will see you this weekend.

      October 28, 2013

  • Trevor

    Hi Denise - Yeah -- that would be great and I would appreciate it. Please put me down for 1 person at the site #8 and I will figure out a place to park the car (I guess they don't let you pay a little extra for the third car?). I will bring my own tent and gear. I will bring cash to pay whatever share of fees and the $5 group fee. Please let me know if anything changes. BTW - how do I contact people regarding the parking? Should I just show up and figure it out on the day? Or post something here perhaps?

    October 25, 2013

    • Denise

      Denise you rock! Perfect tganks so much! Trevor hope you get this message in time and dont forget all cars are required to have parking pass in window so be sure to stop by office and get your pass.

      October 26, 2013

    • Denise

      Ilya I appreciate your feelings however me and most of my members work full time my camping group is a hobby and I did not mean to ignore you however all our events require each member to acquire their own site sometimes it works out to share and sometimes it doesnt. It is not a matter of you not receiving a response I believe it is human nature for people to want to meet in person before sharing a site. I have the kindest most generous people in my group that i have ever had the honor of meeting and I believe if you extended a bit of effort and had booked the site and met everyone you would have to agree.

      October 26, 2013

  • Denise

    Hi Trevor
    Looking forward to seeing you. I dont accept cash payments for the meetup fees in order to attend you would to pay here on the site first please. I am not trying to be difficult its just too difficult to organize payments in cash and frankly dangerous to keep cash like that at site... The total payment would be 35 for the site and meetup event cost. Payments are accepted thru paypal. As far as the car i think the office will require an $8 parking pass fee and it is more a space issue really so prob that weekend we will find out which member only has one car and you might be able to share their parking spot. Hope that covers all your questions and looking forward to seeing you!

    Hi - I am interested in possibly coming to this camp-out. I would like to join someone's existing campsite for a spot for 1 or 2 nights. I have my own tent and equipment so that's all set. (I have a 1 man tent or 3 man tent so let me know if anyone needs help/space). I am happy to drive anyone from the Greenwich/Stamford/Lower Westchester County area up and down for 1 night or 2. Thanks

    October 22, 2013

    • Trevor

      sorry - may have done this wrong - - I replied above -- (yes I would like to be at site #8 -thanks!)

      October 25, 2013

    • Ilya M.

      Yeah, well i figured since nobody's replying, it wasn't worth the effort of booking a site for 2 nights when i can only come for one. See you in spring then.

      October 25, 2013

  • Denise

  • Denise

    For some strange reason it's impossible to get an online map of the actual camping site in Fahnestock. Your link is miles off ( not your fault, obviously). Mine ( see below) is more accurate.. though not exact. Camping is directly across from the entrance to Canopus Lake beach road ( inaccurately marked as the camp site location). It's the "L" shaped road on my map. Big sign.

    I've hiked in the area many times and done some camping there.
