    NY>Finger Lakes NF>Jan-Feb Inaugural Frozen Fingers Hang

    Hey Everyone -

    This is going to be the planning thread for the inaugural Frozen Fingers Hang.

    I had originally started a thread here wondering if there was a winter hang in New York. There are some folks that do a hang in the Northern Adirondacks in February, but there was nothing in the Central New York Area.

    Through the thread linked above, we have decided to organize a hang in the Finger Lakes National Forest (hence the name "Frozen Fingers). HF member Miguel help us find a location that has winter access by car, but the camping area is about a half mile from the parking lot. It's still a pretty secluded area, smack in the middle of a national forest. Being close to the parking area means that we can easily bring in firewood and supplies as needed, and be reasonably close if someone needs to bail out.

    Here's a description of the camping area from Miguel:
    The camping site is near the north end of Foster's Pond. It's about a five to ten minute hike in from the road to the campsite. The area is about eight miles north of Watkins Glen NY off of Rt 414....East side of lake. If you are checking out maps, you turn off Rt 414 on to Rt 2 (Picnic Rd) go 4.4 miles to T, turn left and go 1.1 miles to parking area on left....directly across from Chicken Coup Rd. It's simple to find.

    I'll post a poll to see what the preferred date is.

    Post a thread on here to let us know who is interested. There appears to be plenty of space in two separate areas for at least a dozen campers, but probably a lot more.

    I hope to see you there!

    David
