Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

I need an excuse to visit family in NY anyway, so I may be interested!

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

Yes, I *could* boondock if it's below 35 out, but I'd much rather camp somewhere with 30AMP service so I could use my electric heater.

Until I move away from a place where my main access is tunnels, therefore no propane - or until I decide to deal with finding a gasoline webasto, I am going heater-less.

I am well insulated, though, and would not suffer too much, but it's also approaching the cold season here. Too bad we didn't get it going last week. Was glorious.

When are we talking about?

And of course, worse comes to worse, I could always hook up my honda generator and plug the heater into that. Seems nuts, but it works that way.

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

I don't recall any groups on the site planning a winter meet and greet yet. Could be interesting. (Though hard to picture lengthy talks around the campfire. We'll just have to bring all the layers & get lotsa wood.) I think at those temps - special dispensation could certainly be granted to use your Honda Generator nomadcat. While nobody loves camping next to a generator, I would like to see/hear one up close just to better understand how loud (or quiet) they are. (And what they can power.)

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

There's a campground up in Phoenicia that I called yesterday. He said they'd be open till Christmas, but would close from then until March. I think that's the norm. Heck, most are closed already, I think.

He also said, by the way, that they have no electric, as it was washed out by the flooding.

Can anybody think of any scenic places open in the dead-of-winter around here?

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

There are a few great campgrounds here in CT that I need to check with if open.

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

check and see. it would be fun to camp, even if we're huddling in our vans and talking via walkie -talkie.

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

this place is open all winter and has all the hook-ups. I have a call into them and assume they may cut us a deal during their slow time.

the other thought is to find some private land which I think can be done.

check it out

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

That would be great, esp. with the hookups. It would not deter me, but I must confess to seeing the name "Lyme, CT" and thinking "Tick."

The colder the better.

Re: East Coast Meet and Greet

private land is fine, too, even if the hound and I are huddling under the blankets together.
