That's right Planet is hitting the big 29-U! 29 was such a good age, she decided to stay there. So come One, come All to GoodFellas in East Fishkill, NY on Rt 52. Just off I-84 and Taconic Parkway. Meet at GoodFellas at 3PM.. until whenever, cache beforehand, come check out the area. It's everyone for themselves, typical American Fare, reasonable menu, wings, burgers, sandwiches, etc...We hope you will come celebrate with us... it's a once in a lifetime experience... share it with us! You only hit 29-U once, even though we tried for S twice!
This area is overripe for an event. Winter is about to end and it would be nice to get the OBC (Old Boy's Club) and everyone else together.
Edited 1/15/07.... It's looking like we've got the makings for a party already! Please RSVP here so we can give the restaraunt something of an expected head count. Thanks.
Planet, Poohstickz and I have placed six caches for an unorganized, informal, unplanned, pre-event hike. They are in a brand new state park we have been exploring for a couple of weeks now. I've uploaded a couple of pictures of the track with caches but don't go until the caches are approved! There are two places to park, one on Ludingtonville Rd. off I-84, and one at a park and ride on Rte 311 but the trail head doesn't begin right at the lot, so best off groups head out from Ludingtonville lot. We figure if anyone wants to hike informally, we are planning on meeting at the Luddingtonville Rd. parking lot at 10:00 AM, and waiting up to one half hour, before beginning the hike. It's about 3-4 miles or so (oneway), depending on how many caches you do, over rolling terrain, the trails do manage to take you around hills. Two of the caches are at the tops of hills. The elevation change shouldn't be more than 300+ feet up any hill. If people want to organize themselves and leave a car at either end, you could do that.
The park is new, so not all of the trails are marked well and they are a bit rough. It's a place called Wonder Lake. The property was Elizabeth Montgomery's summer estate, thus the cache names. The hill is called Bare Hill. We hope you can come! See you on the trails.
