RSVPs NOW CLOSED. IF YOU HAVE HIKED WITH ME BEFORE AND ARE DYING TO COME, EMAIL ME DIRECTLY. ROB
OK...it's on. Apologies for not opening this up until now. Quite a few folks have contacted me off-line this week about going on this, so hopefully we can get a good group together.
The plan: We hit the trail mid-afternoon, enjoy sunset at a lake for 1-1.5 hrs.,(so yes, prepare to get wet if that's what you like to do) and proceed with our moonlit hike into the night! Total mileage covered for the day will be in the 5-8 mile range, but be prepared for more, if needed. The majority of the hike will be during daylight. I expect we'll get between 10 and 11 or a bit later.
Transportation: Meet at the same place we did last time: the Park and Ride at the intersection of Route 17 and 17A, about 2 miles north of the town of Tuxedo.
You can also take the bus from Port Authority.
Be sure to tell the driver where you want to get off. It's the first stop after the town of Tuxedo.
PLEASE INDICATE HOW YOU ARE COMING WHEN YOU RSVP.
If you are willing to offer rides or need a ride, feel free to use the comments section or your RSVP.
If we have enough cars, we may set up a short shuttle.
Pace: Before dark: moderate with stops to enjoy the scenery and company. After dark: a bit slower. No non-stop hikers, please.
Light: You need at least one source of light, preferably two. A headlamp is best. Bring a flashlight as backup or bring two flashlights. Garrity makes a sturdy disposable light, under $5, which you can often find at your local hardware store, CVS, Staples, etc. or order from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Innovative-Concepts-LL10GST06N-Disposable-Flashlight/dp/B00176RR7U
