Everyone is required to have a "Hello, my name is..." sticker on the left side of their chest. You will not be allowed to participate, except for being a belay slave, if you don't have one or if it's not exactly on the left side of your chest.

or, on the off chance that there is a shortage of "Hello, my name is" stickers, have a tattoo of your name on your forehead is the only other acceptable way of introducing yourself. You can pick whatever legible font you would like...

I don't suppose this gathering is restricted just to PA climbers so what do you think to a Canadian straggler joining in?

Grant, I don't see it being any problem that you come, except for maybe one condition....bring me another case of Labatt's draft!!!

Neither of you had better fall asleep in the car... I've got a sharpie marker, and I'm not afraid to use it. :twisted:

I'll be driving up Sun morning so it looks like I'll see you at 8AM in the West Trapps Lot. My only question would be......how will we know each other? or will we all just meet at the Trail head?

Chris

You will find us...also...you can check the bulletin boards if you are late. We will leave messages on the boards. Looking forward to meeting you.

Taino, thanks for agreeing to update the site on Saturday night.

So, umm...opening a whole new can of worms here, but is there anyone around Philly that wants to Carpool? Doesn't make sense to waste gas if there's someone else around me that I can pick up on my way up there.

gail et al,
I'm not going to make it this weekend. It looks like you're in for a great weekend, but I'm just to exhausted from work to do a weekend right now.

I guess the only think worse than a weekend warrior is a lame weekend warrior.

I hope you all have fun and I hope to meet you all soon!

all my best,
jeremy

I understand.

In that case...Anne: Chris (dontfall), Dino (my roommate) and I will be crashing SOMEWHERE on Friday night up there. We should meet up. (Allow I've never been to the Gunks so I don't know left from right).

but it would be fun.

glen is coming...but he'll be up there early friday to visit (and stay) with family in the area.

let me ask this: if we get there and find the hostel by 8, is there room for 3 more? I really don't want to just invite myself (and the other 2).... if not. no biggie.

[Randy thinking to himself]
I'm trying to do some. I'm planning to leave W.C. by 2:30. Up to Allentown by 4. And then up 78 to 278 to I-87. We should be there by 8.
[/I'm done]

Question: Given its a Friday night... where can I expect traffic to be bad (I know PA roads) but are 278 and I-87 gonna be bad?

#2: From Allentown...is it better to take 78 or head North to get on I-80 or even I-84?

We will be there on Friday evening but we probably arrive later than 8pm (closer to 10pm is typical for us). So don't wait for us for dinner although you may let us know where you are.

Randy, I believe there is room at the hostel on Friday night...just call Craig to reserve. Mitch, DCollins and SO are all staying there Friday night. Gail

Randy the driving that Anne suggested is good, but if you can get to I-84 without too much hassel it is a beautiful drive and usually not much traffic at all. 84 will dump you onto the Thruway 1 exit south of New Paltz.

Leaverbiner...good luck at the comp! Emma will be taking photos, Max is competing and ex husband Brad is judging. Daugther Paige will be volunteering, but not sure whether it is judging or what. Poor planning on my part!

yeah...i work at a camp in the poconos that is 10 minutes from i-84...I never realized how quickly we could get to the Gunks from there (70 miles on i-84 and another 15 north) if I would have realized that before, this would not be my first time to the Gunks!!

oh and Gail...the first post has multiple meeting times for Saturday. I believe its 8 AM. Better delete the mention of 8:30.
