February 29-March 1, Cabin Trip, Thendara Mountain Club, Harriman State Park NY
Our friends at Thendara Mountain Club have invited us to stay overnight at their rustic cabin in Harriman State Park. The cabin (built 1929) has heat, electricity, a full kitchen, indoor men's and women's washrooms with hot showers, and unheated bathrooms about 50 ft from the lodge. There are seven bedrooms with 2-4 cots each (rooms are shared). The cabin has a big main room with fireplace, comfortable seating, eating table and screened in porch. The weekend includes Saturday night dinner, Sunday breakfast and a bag lunch. Meet us at the cabin on Saturday morning at 9:30am to join us on a hike (TBD). Depending on snowfall, we may instead snowshoe or even cross-country ski. We may also carpool to the trail head. Later in the afternoon we will return to camp for a relaxing and well deserved happy hour in front of the fire! Dinner will be provided by the Thendara host for this weekend. Breakfast and lunch will be available on Sunday. Diet restrictions can usually be accommodated - just be sure to tell the host when you RSVP. You need to bring a sleeping bag or sheet and pillowcase. There are wool blankets and pillows available. On Sunday, after we have breakfast and prepare our bag lunch, we may go out again starting at about 11am from the cabin. The total cost will be approximately $50, depending on what food the host brings to prepare. You must pay the balance in cash to the host during the weekend. This payment will cover meals and lodging for Saturday night (meals are Saturday happy hour and dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch). YOU MUST RSVP AND SIGN UP FOR MEALS BY WEDNESDAY January 30th. You can take the train or bus to Sloatsburg and can either hike in, ride a bike up scenic Seven Lakes Drive, or we can arrange to have someone from camp with a car meet you at the station. Feel free to bring a spouse, date, friend and well behaved kids, but sorry, no pets.
To reserve a spot, send a check for $30 made out to Campers' Group, to: Campers' Group, 48 S. High Street Mt. Vernon, NY 10550. Once the organizer or a trip leader is notified of receipt of your check, you will be added to the RSVP list. For immediate inclusion, pay $31.23 via PayPal on the meetup.com page for this trip.
