    High temps are going to be in the 50s and lows are above freezing! Welcome to the January thaw.

    I'll be there Friday night. Start a signal fire for me.

    I'm going to have to sit this one out. My car has died and I'm going to be out looking for another on Saturday.

    If people are planning on one of the other dates, I am interested.

    I'm aiming to be there around 1pm, maybe a little later if I get too distracted by the stop I plan at Wegmans to pick up some food.

    Just a suggestion....if eveyone brought one bundle of wood, that would be very cool. Wood is a bit scarce at the actual campsite. They sell bundles all along RT414 and on Rt 2 just as you turn off rt 414. My pulk will be available to haul it in if there is still snow on the trail. Worst case scenario...we have to carry it in....only a ten minute walk. No biggie...

    Just checked the weather report again. It's getting better with a 60% chance of showers on Friday....zero percent chance on Saturday with some sun and a zero percent chance of showers on Sunday. High of 46 on Friday and 60ish Sat./Sun....lows will be 46 both nights.

    I'd say the odds are becoming more favorable for no rain on Friday, especially toward the later part of the day. So come on down!!!

    I won't be in until Saturday, probably mid-morning. What's the potable water situation? I was thinking about bringing my 5 gallon container.

    This is a backcountry camp site. Granted, it's not that far off the road, but a five gallon container is pretty hard to carry unless you're bringing a pulk. There is a pond (that may be frozen), and plenty of snow for water. The snow situation will probably change dramatically this weekend though. I'd suggest using Aqua Mira or boiling for water treatment.

    I'm down to a "maybe". The flu hit me hard today, but I'm hoping to get over it and make it anyway.
