  • Apr 26, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey everyone! The season begins! A bit of a late start this year and sorry for those that attended last year we never got around to the year end trip either....BUT we will make up for it this year with lots of fun! Hope to see you all soon!

YOU MUST READ this entirely to sign up!

It costs a $5 non refundable fee that secures your attendence.  You are on your own for the meals and beverages for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

You are responsible for accuring your own campsite. If you want to share....arrange that between members.

My site is #16 which is the base camp--can't wait to see/meet you all! Please do NOT arrive at base camp before 11 a.m. on Friday.

You are responsible for booking your own site at http://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/Clarence_Fahnestock_State_Park/r/campgroundDetails.do?page=details&contractCode=NY&parkId=409&topTabIndex=CampingSpot.

Reserve America charges will be about $19.00 per nite per site.

I will notify you of any changes.

You must bring all food/water etc that you will need. I hope you decide to join this is going to be a really relaxing great week-end!

Dogs owners, please be sure to call the park directly and find out if you need any special tags information etc for this week-end.

    Didn't know where else to post this, but can we see a blown-up image of the shirt graphics? The site doesn't let you enlarge for some reason (I think we were able to do it last year.) I see the yellow pineapple but not much else on the front.

    Superb. Great conversation, lots of silliness, laughter, and magnificent, roaring campfires, and a near-full moon. A wonderfully slow-paced 1.5 mile afternoon hike, AND Mother Nature smiling on us the entire weekend. Lovely, relaxing, fun, and so enjoyable. I was so happy to see everyone again. • Thanks for your organinzing, Denise. You are so our Meetup QUEEN, your highness!

    Hi Gang... I was planning on attending, but it looks like all the sites are already booked. Sounds like you Campers will have a great weekend!
    Look for you another time.
    PS to Denise... I've been here a few times and I believe your campsite is elevated from the road.

    MAGNIFICENT weather predicted for the ENTIRE weekend! Y A Y ! I won't have to sleep in my car to avoid being swept away by rising waters, like last year. (I have been having daily chats with Mother Earth and Father Sky since they left a live snail next to my car on Earth Day, so you can thank me when you see me.)

    I am hoping that the campfire wood for sale at the site is dry but does anyone know of a local place from which to buy any?

      I know Walmart & Home Depot are on the way, EAst on Route 6 near or in Crompound/Yorktown, going North and I think one of them will have firewood and starter sticks. (I'm planning on picking some of each on my way, too.)

    Quick question...I reserved a spot (site 5) but I did not realize that the site said "Hike In" I have never been to Fahnestock before... Does anyone have an Idea how much of a "hiking in" I'm going to have to do? And ....where do I leave my car?
    Thanks :)
    Looking forward to meeting everyone

    If I can get Friday the 26th off as a VACATION DAY, I'll be driving to arrive around 3:30 or 4:30 pm so I can have a bite to eat nearby before setting up camp at 5. • Would anyone like to carpool with me from upper Westchester? (I can alter my route to accommodate someone nearby or enroute.)

    Yes this is camping! and as it is the first of the season I say bring paper and a pen to make a list as you go thru your camping equipment to refill and replenish ie what batteries do you need, airpump still working?, out of paper towels...air mattress leaking etc etc...bring totes, or bags and throw all your camping gear in car and come and get organized on saturday morning and then you will be set for the season!
