Announcing a new Meetup for Hiking & Nature Meetup!

What: Camp, swim and watch a jousting match!

When: Friday, August 13,[masked]:00 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

***NO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION***

WHAT: Camping Friday overnight into Saturday at Harriman State Park, with light hiking, heavy swimming and the option to check out Renaissance Fair in Tuxedo on the way back (http://www.renfair.com/NY/). Returning to the city on Saturday evening.

WHO: Experienced or beginner backpackers. Must have prior hiking experience (Intermediate Hikers) and able to carry your own things.

WHEN: Meeting near Harriman Park around 7pm on Friday, leaving the park around 4pm on Saturday. We will drive to the trailhead together on Friday, hike about an hour to a campsite by the lake, and make camp. Will swim to our hearts' content in the morning, then hike a bit and leave the park to head to the Renaissance fair.

HOW: A max of 4 ppl are allowed to RSVP as I am already going with some friends. People that have never camped before but consider themselves Intermediate Hikers are welcome, as long as you have all the necessary gear. PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER WHEN RSVP'ing so I can let you know where exactly we are meeting. Feel free to email me with any questions.

WHAT TO BRING: The usual camping stuff, dinner, breakfast, snacks and lunch for yourself. I will bring a stove for boiling water and can find an extra tent, if need be. Beginners MUST have own sleeping bag/pad
