I am not 100% certain if I will make these dates, but, if you all get together at Gathland, there is a mighty good chance I will make it! Sorry to be so vague but this is out of my hands now!

It's always best if your an early riser!
I like hiking as it's like exercise!
I'm off that weekend (for now) and have in mind to make it up to Gathland on Sat afternoon for an overnight.
I'll keep an eye here (and post) as to how the weekend is shaping up.
For those interested in an "informal" hang ( as in bring all your own food/beverages, no raffle or scheduled activities other than "hanging out" and shared adult beverages around a shared campfire), I am currently scheduled to be up at Gathland State Park in the usual MAHHA site this coming Saturday afternoon and night.
Cranky, hope your schedule works out so you can make it as well.
Weather forecast is currently for thunderstorms, which is not delighful but that's what extra tarps are for!
Forecast is for rain all day Saturday through Saturday night. Thunderstorms at times. I have been at Gathland in weather like that and it was dramatic, to say the least. It rains so hard there the air is filled with vapor.
I think I'm going to pass on this weekend and hold out for slightly better conditions given that its an elective outing.
any other dates suggested?
As long as it isn't between June 1-8th, I should be in
I'll be out there between the 27th and 30th, going sobo from Pen Mar to Harpers Ferry. I could use some company
