    I have an update from Dave at Mohawk trail state forest. They are planning on having the area open by mid Sept. but there is no guarantee.
    We can shoot for the Oct. 5-7 date and hope for the best or if someone has another location near them that they can check out we can change the site for this hang.

    Anyone have another site near them that would work for this? I hate the thought of setting a time for the Kenneth Dubuque state forest and having it still be closed.

    Sounds good trip. I may be able to make it. Might bring some potential converts.

    Here is my last update NightHauk. I haven't seen any post about other locations. I'm concentrating on my training right now and won't bother checking back with them until September when I get back from Maine.
    Thanks for the offer of assistance. If it does open up in time the only thing I would want help with is if we were going to do a group dinner on Saturday.

    Do you know of another location we could use?

    All, sadly, neither date works for me, currently. The one in September, I will be at Loon Mountain for the highland games. Then, currently, the October date, that is currently our yearly band meeting-and, I would bag it, but, I am the current president, and will be stepping down that day, so, I sorta NEED to be there . However, that date is subject to change, so I will keep an eye out on this one!

    I will check with the local State Park here - Harold Parker State Forest/Park - about the possibility of a group site, or multiple adjacent sites. I camped there several times last summer, and t is a pretty good place. If things need pushing, GeneGene can also advocate for us, since he works for the DCR. I have already met the Rangers there, and worked with them as a Fishing Instructor for the State on several events last year.

    I will let you know as soon as I get a chance to drop up there. It is in Andover, North Andover, Mass, and right off the highway - easy access!

    Sounds Great! Glad to have a plan B.

    I'm thinking this should be plan A for fall with the uncertainty of the KDM state forest opening. We were looking for a hike in hang with an easy 2 miles or less but I'm good with another group site hang and then try for the hiking trip in the spring.

    Raiffnuke and I were there for a hang and really liked the DAR group site. The only issue is the group site was booked for the entire year on the weekends.
    If we wanted to try DAR I think we'd have to plan well ahead and book it as soon as the season starts.
