I sent a DM to TOY4RUNR as well. Perhaps we can persuade him to join and you can both head that way together. I hope so. It's just a bit further for him, but I don't think he'll regret it, and it would be a good chance to actually meet each other prior to bigger adventures later. We'll see.

I ground tent as well. I was hoping to test some snow gear this weekend - but the forecast warmed up and turned to mostly rain instead. I'll adjust accordingly.

I'm in! I cant stay long on Sunday, but I'm in for camping in Oneida, after the meetup.

Nice!

I'll keep an eye on this thread. And will provide specific location details via DM.
I'm also still trying to see if there is any way I can meet you guys in Tully or as you go into Morgan Hill - but just for the drive - not the breakfast. Coordinating that might be more trouble than its worth. Unless you can narrow in on a specific exit time from the cafe or an entry time for Morgan Hill (then I could join up at a coordinated position).

Lets plan on departing the Café no later than 9:30.

If history repeats itself, we usually just end up standing around in the parking lot. :)

Thinking about joining, Camping overnight would be coming up from Columbus, Ohio
I have one more slot available for camping. The site is near Verona, NY and convenient for getting right back on 90 W to head home. There will be 3 others - including myself. Needs to be firm though, can't hold it for a "maybe", so let me know.

Hi Everyone. I am looking forward to Saturday!
We will begin by meeting at The Elm Street Cafe. From there the day is split up into three sections, first Morgan Hill State Forest, then Taylor Valley State Forest and finally Linklaen State Forest.
Feel free to do as much or as little as you would like. Sounds like the roads in these state forest are well kept and easily doable in a stock vehicle.
This area is new to me. We will explore any unpaved roads in the area, and mark any campsites for future trips.
The dog and I will return to one of the campsites and stay for the night. Anyone interested is welcome to join.

GRMS Channel 15. I have a couple extra radios, if anyone needs one.

Not a bad turnout for Up State NY in the middle of winter. Great job!
