Departure is this Wednesday. I'll be heading up from NJ and meet DougD at his place and then drive up to the lake from there, where we will meet up with ScottB, his brother Charles, Aaron and Ken Ward (Slowstroke) flying up from Florida .
Weather forecast looks outstanding! Sunny mild weather each day and cool nights with a full moon on Thursday night. Our campsite will be on the eastern shore which will provide outstanding sunsets. The adventure can't begin soon enough!

I am going in a couple of weeks. Common Ground Fair is this weekend and is for me a must do.

We'll be camping about 9 miles up at the Lincoln Brook site as a base camp and do some exploring during the days. Travel day for me is Wednesday and we will meet at Black Brook, and launch Thursday morning.

It got to freezing. And the wind is up. I think winter is not far away.

went to do some last minute shopping. Got some steaks, sausage, peppers, onions, cashews, m and ms, 3 lbs of bacon, eggs, bagels, beef jerky, sharp cheddar cheese, picked up a new black diamond revolt headlamp, fuel for the stove. All that's left to do is beer up. After the summer from hell, this is a much needed retreat. I only wish it was longer than 5 days. See you guys soon.
