New Paltz Rail Trail Winter Walk!!

  • Feb 1, 2014 · 1:00 PM

Update Update!!! We are all dining at 3:30. No more separate seatings!! Please be on time for our walk so we can get started quickly. Thanks!!!

Happy Day!!! You can sign up for your desired time on Saturday so the restaurant doesn't get overwhelmed with us all descending at once. There is always some shopping that can be done if you chose a later dining time....just thinking....Pegasus...... :-)

Happy February!!! Let's enjoy a relaxing walk on the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail in New Paltz.  Their website is http://www.gorailtrail.org/maps.html. It is a wide unpaved path that we will take from New Paltz north as far as we want to go. It is flat and straight, not difficult at all.

If it's snowy you will want boots/snowpants/long johns. If you have MicroSpikes or Stabilicers do bring them!!! Icy trails are no fun and regular boots can't compete with ice. Dogs welcome. We will dine afterwards in New Paltz, location TBD. Bring: hat, scarf, gloves, camera, perhaps water or tea. I'm guessing at least 2 hours walk, hopefully 3 if it's a great day.

We will meet at the large Park and Ride on 32 north of New Paltz. It is across from Stewarts. The address is 98 N. Chestnut Street, New Paltz, NY, 12561.

Nasty weather cancels, check your computer beforehand. Please send me your cell if I don't have it, I'll return with mine. Please DO NOT TEXT ME or touch the Good To See You buttons after the event.

$2 Meetup fee unless it's your first event or if you're over 50 events with me in which case it's free!! All events are at your own risk and you will need to sign a liability waiver to participate.

    Sheryl, when you started this group did you think that you would plan/attend 500 events? Well my friend you did it!!! As we focus on the journey and not the destination, it's apparent that you have created a memorable journey for so many thus far, and will continue to do that with many more fun-filled events...Thanks you so much Sheryl!!! :-)

    What a beautiful, winter day for a nice, easy walk on the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. I loved the ambiance of Barnaby's upper dining room, the fabulous food and all the great company. Another perfect meetup, thank you Sheryl.

    Sorry Sheryl, could not attend. Received a call late last night that a dear friend of mine's husband past away at age 59. Attending the wake and funeral on LI this weekend and Monday. Hope to see you and the gang soon.

  • Joan

    Ok as usual I am missing something. I clicked on the above website and it is not found. I sent a message last night to find out where we are meeting and that hasn't shown up.
    I am doing a process of elimination good thing I know the area. Are we meeting @ the parking lot near the old stone houses near the church?????OR at the park and ride across from Stewarts OR @ some other mystery place????? Please help!!!!!!! Or it will be where is Waldo(Joan)

    February 1, 2014

    • Joan

      Ok now that I am @ work using a Laptop I can see all the messages. See you @ the Park and ride. Waldo is now found.

      February 1, 2014

    • Sheryl

      Happy Waldo!!!! :-)

      February 1, 2014

  • Anne

    I am not sure if I will be able to join the group afterwards for dining at Barnaby's. I have to see how much time I need to deal with some problems here. I will let you know.

    February 1, 2014

  • Debi

    Hello am walking not staying to eat

    February 1, 2014

    Sorry all deepest apologies, I cannot make the walk today!

    sorry its my New year going to city have fun

    January 29, 2014

    • Sheryl

      Happy New Year Jan!!! :-)

      February 1, 2014

    • jan n.

      thanks enjoy the sun shine

      February 1, 2014

  • Sheryl

    Another thought, you may want to park near Barnaby's and walk up to the park and ride so your car is nearby afterwards, otherwise you'll have to walk back to it afterwards. :-) Please don't park in Barnaby's lot, it's very small and you may get towed if you aren't eating there immediately. Street parking with purple meters is your best bet.

    • Marie

      Sheryl and all, so sorry I have to miss this outing with you guys. Apologies!

    January 31, 2014

    • Sheryl

      We will meet at the large Park and Ride on 32 north of New Paltz. It is across from Stewarts. The address is 98 N. Chestnut Street, New Paltz, NY, 12561

      January 31, 2014

  • Sheryl

    I want to set off at 1 as our walk is only until 3:30. I will start hugging at 12:45 so we can be on time to take off.:-) I will have a sign up sheet and a can for your Meetup money so I don't have to fuss too much at the beginning. Latecomers may find we've left, please be early and READY TO GO with our Name Circle at 1. Barnaby's doesn't want us later than 3:30 with this large group. :-)

    January 31, 2014

  • Sheryl

    I'm going to call and see if we can do just 2 seatings, that'll be much better. Stay tuned!!! TGIF!!!! :-)

    January 31, 2014

    • Sue K.

      Hi Sheryl... I'm going to skip the lunch part.

      January 31, 2014

  • donna

    Not dining, I have to be to work at 5.

    January 31, 2014

  • Emily

    i will be there fot the walk, but not for dinner at this point.

    January 31, 2014

  • Jan

    OK, so I read that we were to sign up for dining on Saturday. Did not read the additional emails :(
    I can barely see the screen on this "smart" phone!

    January 31, 2014

  • Sheryl

    I had it wrong, 'No man was ever shot by a woman while he was doing the dishes.' :-)

    January 31, 2014

  • Sheryl

    Everyone who didn't respond is in the 4:00 slot. It will be VERY important that you are at the restaurant at your slotted time or it will get VERY discombobulated (my big word for the day!!). Then they will hate us forever, and probably NEVER let us come back... and they will make problem people DO ALL THE DISHES.... :-) :-) :-) Sorry, please be on time for your seating. :-)

    January 30, 2014

    • Pat(ricia)

      I don't mind doing the dishes! ;D.

      1 · January 30, 2014

    • Sheryl

      Did you know no man has ever been shot while doing the dishes? ;-)

    Just walking, not eating

    January 30, 2014

  • Roberta T.

    I'm going for the walk but not for dinner. Please don't add me to the list.

    January 30, 2014

  • jmp

    as for dining, I am flexible for anytime seats are available. No preference!! I'm from this area so if others want to go to the Bakery on N. Front St, Starbucks or P&G's before the later reservation time ( these places are nearby) or anywhere else. .I'm game to show others around. There is a fun art store called "Manny's" on main street worth visiting for the heck of it! JoAnne

    January 30, 2014

    • Sheryl

      Manny's is amazing and I am sure to visit Pegasus (cool shoes) at some point. Also Handmade and More.....You're in the 4:00 slot. :-)

      January 30, 2014

  • Louise Leclerc M.

    Sorry Sheryl but could I please change my dining time from 4:30 to 4:00 and add Dave to that time also. Since we are carpooling it would be easier for us to eat at the same time. Thanks

    January 30, 2014

    • Sheryl

      Absolutely not a problem. Done. :-)

      January 30, 2014

  • Lisa M.

    sorry - have to work maybe I can hook up with group in the evening -

    January 30, 2014

  • Sheryl

    I'm changing my dining time to 4:30. I will get the 3:30 people organized but will likely eat at 4:30. If I ate at 3:30 I'd be ready to leave at 4:30.... :-)

    January 30, 2014

  • Dale

    3:30 please

    January 30, 2014

  • Sheryl

    Guessing Janet and Charlie are in the 4:30 one too. :-)

    January 30, 2014

  • Sheryl

    4:30 is FILLED. Everyone else needs to dine at 4 or a few at 3:30. If we have a bunch of no-shows I will change the 4:30 to 4:00 but I don't expect to have to do that. Wahoo!!

    January 30, 2014

  • DennisN

    4:30 will be fine for me.

    January 30, 2014

    • Joan

      4:30 would be fine

      January 30, 2014

  • Cathy M

    4:00 Is awfully lonely...can I be a pest and change to 4:30? Thanks Sheryl.

    January 29, 2014

  • Sheryl

    Hi Friends, If you are set on a particular seating please post it now. Once we get to 15 for the 3:30 you need to choose a different time, and same for the 4:00 (20) or 4:30 seatings if they fill up. I may need to change people if seatings fill up and you pick a time after it has filled up. I am going to be in the 3:30 seating and will stay at the restaurant for all seatings just in case. I only count in the 3:30 seating. :-)

    January 29, 2014

    • liz

      I would like the 3:30 as well +1 so (2). This is a first time event for me...anything I should know besides bundle up and be ready to walk my butt off... can't wait to meet everyone:)

      January 29, 2014

  • Marta

    Is it ok if I meet people after the walk at 4:30 pm?
