Northeast SP Gathering

Postby kakakiw » Fri Sep 24, 2010 4:44 pm

I thinks it's time for us to have a little gathering in the Northeast. I was thinking maybe next fall in the Whites, although Woodsxc thought of a Mainer's gathering this winter. Whatever develops let's try and do this.
So what is everybody's mind?

I'm in for almost any gathering, provided I can bum a ride off someone (or steal a car).

I'm going to be in the Whites this winter with some friends (who use SP but are not members..) I don't have the dates nailed down so list a few. I was thinking I would be up there over new years. (around 4 or 5 days)

I could be up for this. Combine it with a ski trip. Since I have a minivan
Image I could possibly bring along a couple of NYCers.

Do you mean this fall?

I'd be down as long as there aren't any Bowl games or playoff games on. If it's still early enough in the fall, any thoughts on the Bonds?

That shouldn't be a weekend killer surely.

Rent something like this for a week. Nice home Theater. Game comes on and you head in.

For me, 2011 would be best and it would give everybody plenty of time to think, wimp out or get in shape.

I think a winter snowshoe hike up a peak would be a killer way to start off the new year. Jan 1st 2011?

(maybe a gully ice climb for the more advanced? :) )

I'd be down for a meet either in the Gunks or Adirondacks this fall. Free camping, great cragging and a lot of hiking to do for folks who aren't into technical climbing...

For me to get to Maine or the 'Dacks or 'Gunks would require significant advance planning, so somebody pick a time and place (why not two?) and I'll see what I can do.
