    A couple of us go up to either 501 shelter sometimes. Nice camp sites if you go to the shelter and turn left. I've been working crazy hours but I may try to join for the night.

    what weekend are you going out to that? i just found out one of the kids in my hall has some stuff for cold weather so i think i'll take him on his first hang if that weekend works out.

    I am on mandatory overtime indefinately and have to work 3rd shift Friday nights every other weekend. So I have off this weekend and then every other weekend after that..Oct 30, Nov 13th, Nov 27, ect... Pick one and I should be up for an overnighter at 501. But don't let Greenlespaul know, he will make you carry his gear.

    Vagabond, I might be up for that too, or other future hikes. I live in Lancaster and usually do atleast 2 overnights on the A.T. a month. I only recently converted to hammocks but am loving it!

    Hey GLP or Dutch,
    Where is the 501 shelter? What is a close town? Is this the one where you exit I-78 at Bethel and head north? I might be able to do an overnight on 11/27 but my plans are not yet final.

    That's the one I was thinking of. If you were to head south on 501 past the AT from Pine Grove, you would hit Bethel in 2 or 3 miles.
