    Philadelphia-area people, want to hang on Oct. 8-9?

    Basically, I only have one friend who's into camping and he's busy next weekend. Seeing as how it's October, I want to spend just about every weekend in the woods in one way or another, so I thought I'd see if there's anybody from the area around Philly who'd want to set up a group hang this Saturday-Sunday. Or Friday-Saturday I guess although I probably couldn't get off work early enough. I live in the city and don't have a car but I could take the regional rail out to meet someone and get picked up. Anybody interested?

    I'm looking to get one hang in before Fall MAHHA at Gathland State Park 10/14-16. I'm good for an overnight 10/8-9 if it fleshes out.

    English, tricky language. I was trying to say that I'd be interested in a local hang (NY/NJ) before going down to the MAHHA in Maryland.

    Even though I live in NJ, I have never hung or camped in New Jersey. That $20 per night fee for a campsite at Parvin just kills me, and that looks like the rate at all NJ State Parks & Forests. Makes the Catskills, Adirondacks and AT look quite enticing!

    I might be able to swing something this weekend. I'd just have to shuffle some family stuff. Since I had to cancel MAHHA. I'd like to duck out for a night if I can.

    There are a few backcountry camp sites in Wharton that are $2/person/night and they're pretty nice spots too. Batona Camp, the location of the winter hang, is one. Lower Forge is another that I've hit.

    Interested yes, but not available.
    I have a day-long commitment on Saturday.
    Oh yeah, and my UQ and tarp aren't in yet and I think I would have a severe case of CBS without them.
