welcome to the forums. where were you originally from?
Same thing happened with my wife and I! "My" thunderbird is now "her" thunderbird. Where abouts in north jersey are you? We're in parsippany
welcome from north jersey. we're pretty active, so be sure to keep your eye out on the trip planning forum
welcome. there are NJ people who try to get out twice a month. Keep your eye out in the trip planning forum
My wife covers herself head to toe with her topquilt every single time. And every time i ask her about condensation, she tells me she hasn't noticed anything. No wonder she sleeps so well!
Here are some pics, in a random order.
Nice meeting you guys, and nice seeing familiar faces.
PBTB's method for drying...
good question. What would be good to bring? Cake is on order for pbtbs b-day.
I'm uncertain as to what time we'll be arriving - it's a 120 mile trip in rush hour. Hoping to get there before...
From what I remember , sites 1 and 2 had over a dozen hang spots each.
Here's a pic of site 2 :
Plenty of spots to hang!!!
11 is quite a hike to campsites 1 & 2 from what I remember. The last time we were at bodine field, silentorpheus and myself noted that 11 is super windy since it's right by the water. It's a...
R. I. P. piggies
R. I. P. my digestive system after the weekend!
Change of plans : We're looking to arrive friday night. So we'll be around sat. if paddlers are needed.
Looks like only a few folks are staying friday night, if so I'd be willing to bring dinner...
Hey mike! We're planning to cook 3 racks at around 13-15 per rack.
We're also bringing cake for PBTB'S BIRTHDAY BASH IN THE WOODS
mike no need to get racks for us bud, we already purchased some. We'll be there in the AM!
Ok, sounds good. We removed ourself from the paddler list. We'll be there early sat. am at bodine field. What campsites did we get?
We're thinking about arriving saturday morning at the campsites. If you guys paddle on saturday, what time will yall arrive at bodine?
crab cakes out in the forest? yeeeah right. :tongueup:
we can do ribs in our dutch oven. There's a dry rub recipe we like to use.... doused in some guiness its amazing :cool:
We can bring a dutch oven if we're paddling. Let us know what you want us to make!
I kind of want to make cinnamon rolls with bacon in the middle
Count diana and myself in. We're able to paddle if theres enough room/equip. for us.
I may be interested
that guide gear tarp saved our asses!!!!!!!
Here's the post that kept silvr's AMAZING guide gear tarp up, and inadvertently caught on fire.
It was a fireball. If i hadn't leapt out of the way, I wouldn't have a face! Im sure he didn't realize how big the fireball would be....
Good seeing you guys as usual, and nice to meet you krust. Here's a few pics of our originally selected site 11 (which was reserved for the paddlers )
We'll bring a few pots as well for heating water. Gotta have our hot nalgenes! - Diana
We can bring Styrofoam/paper plates and I think we have some plastic utensils...not much, but better than nothing if we run out - Diana (too lazy to log out of Chris183's account).
Spring needs to get here now!
I plan on bringing two bundles of wood for cooking purposes as well.
We're bringing cheesy chicken casserole
Ok, thank you for the great pics and detailed instructions. Change of plans though, the double digit temps has encouraged Diana to join us. 1 more to the roster please!
so the beaver branch canoe landing is where we turn in to go to the parking area at the campground?
hahah no my wife does :lol:
I drive a little mitsubishi :sleep:
thanks for the reassurance. i get nervous with my little putt putt car. I have that turn into the campsite off chatsworth road all programmed into my nav.
No, sorry I didn't clarify. I have a deep 12qt that will fit 2 batches worth!
Is the camp entrance off chatsworth road marked? I hope my wee little car can make it in there
Yeah it's got veggies. Two batches should technically be 8 servings. Another main course would be great, just in case i fail miserably at making the stuff.
Im thinking of making cheesy chicken casserole in the dutch oven. I have a feeling we're gonna have more food than necessary.
Ok. I'm in. It will just be me attending.
I'd like some extra info on the campsite. Do you require my license plate? Is it a parking lot, or do you drive into the campsite like batona?
jacksrbetter has an 11 ft wide/12 ft long tarp if i'm not mistaken!!
gordon, so does this mean we'll be seeing the mrs. at the next hang?!
Then again i wouldn't mind setting up base camp with silentorpheus for the ones paddling in. Large signal fire, a hot meal ready to go!
This trip it might just be me, and I'm not sure if if i should paddle in or not. If you have room for one more in your canoe id be interested in joining you, but Ive never paddled in my life!
tentatively planning to join in. Will know soon!!
Hey guys. Diana, Ron and myself are tentatively planning to do a section of the NPT on the first weekend of april this year. I will be paying close attention to this thread
The entire hammock weighs over 3 lbs.
Just the hammock. Thank you and edited.
Hey guys. purchased this clark in April of 2014. The only issue we've had since new was that the secondary zipper (bugnet zipper) can get stuck at the end of the foot end from time to time. The...
stacking quilts, thats madness
according to diana, theres no comparison. she says theres more room, material is softer, better features, more comfortable, lighter etc.... the list goes on!
heres a pic of her...
hey silvr. i regret not being able to check out your purple hammock at our last hang, so I ordered one!!! :shades:
It was !!! However, the wife loves it so much I decided to give it to her
Hey bud, thanks! Hopefully we can get a hang before the winter hang in Jan. I won't be able to make it to the xmas...
