Hike/Camp/Party & New Hope Pride

Hey all, 

Here are the details for the weekend.  The weather looks like it will be amazing!  

9AM Meet at parking lot next to the D&R canal in Lambertville, NJ.   (~90 mins from NYC)   Directions to Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum PARKING LOT (Lambertville):  http://www.holcombe-jimison.org/directions.html    

Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum
1605 Daniel Bray Highway (Rte. 29) 
just north of Lamberville, NJ   
(when you turn off of rt 29, it is down at the end of the road. )

Then you will choose to either walk south along the D&R Canal path for ~1 mile to Gary’s house for brunch /cocktails  or walk north along the D&R Canal to the Stockton bridge, cross over to PA, and walk back to the New Hope (~6 miles).   (Gary's house is available for brunch/cocktails in the morning, and not the afternoon.)  You can decide on Sat morning, which you'd prefer to do.  http://www.dandrcanal.com/pdf/Delaware-River-Scenic-Byway-map-10-11.pdf

11:30AM  Meet in front of the Bucks County Playhouse, in New Hope, PA.  (~ 1 Mile from Gary's house.)  We will all meet back up to watch the LGBT Pride parade/festivities until 1pm.

Address of Bucks County Play House:  http://www.bcptheater.org/plan-your-visit/directions-parking-and-other-transportation/

At ~1PM, we’ll walk back to our cars (~1 mile) and drive to the campsite, which is ~40 mins away in Nockamixon State Park.   http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/findapark/nockamixon/

Little Red Barn Campground, 367 Old Bethlehem Road, Quakertown, PA 18951,  (We'll choose the adjacent campsites when we arrive.)

In Nockamixon State Park we can go hiking and/or rent boats for the lake.  Everyone is welcome to join us at the park to go hiking, even if you don't intend to stay overnight.

I'll bring wine for the folks who are camping over night.  It's going to get down into the 40s on Sat night, so bring a warm sleeping bag or blankets.  (This is car-camping, after all).  If you are planning on camping, but don't have a tent, EMS, REI and most local outdoors stores will rent you any gear you need for a small fee.   Contact me if you have questions about this.

    Water freezes at 0 deg C (32 deg F). Water boils at 100 deg C (212 deg F). If the geek said, "half way between 0 C and 100 C is 50 C, so that must be equal to half way between freezing and boiling on the F scale too, (ie 122 F). Also, room temperature is around 20% of the way between freezing and boiling on the F scale (68 deg F), so it must also be 20% of the way between freezing and boiling on the C scale. Would he be right? Ye of little faith can calculate the answer at http://www.mathsisfun.com/temperature-conversion.html ;)

    I have one more spot in my car if you'd like to join. Picking up from Jersey City Newport station, but will be returning the same day. Cheers!

  • Alex

    Fellas...spoke with Glenn (super nice guy)...he's working on a campsite reservation for those who want to stay over as well as the hiking trail for the entire group.

    As for carpooling, he will be reposting the spreadsheet, but can I propose that those who are driving through the Holland Tunnel meet and follow each other...maybe even grab some grub before we travel.

    If you are a driver, hit me up privately and lets coordinate....just a thought.

    May 13, 2014

    • XL-007

      I agree. Let's set up a meeting place and what time.

      May 14, 2014

  • Glenn

    I've updated the carpool spreadsheet. Please enter your information, so we can make sure that everyone has transportation.

    May 13, 2014

    • Jose Carlos R.

      I can't find the link either .
      Where are we meeting ? Where are we camping ?

      May 13, 2014

    • XL-007

      Me neither. :-(

      May 14, 2014

  • Alex

    Fellas...havent heard anything yet on the plans and don't know what is happening, but still want to hike/camp this weekend.

    If plans come together for New Hope, then lets move forward, but if not, would anyone be up for a hiking trip at Bear Mountain? - close and easy...maybe camp over night at the campground?

    Just a thought....Email me directly if you want to plan it out.

  • Jose Carlos R.

    Glenn There is a problem with the spreadsheet . Can we also have specifics of timing and locations ??

    May 11, 2014

    • Michael

      And type, length of hike please.

      May 11, 2014

  • XL-007

    Glenn, I just checked the spreadsheet for carpooling and it's still empty. Those who have car and driving should start filling it up so that those who are looking for a ride can also start signing in which car they would like to carpool with.

  • Alex

    I can drive from the city...I am in the LES and have a car. Can take four ppl.
