        Will be there early Friday morning to reserve a site or 2 (depending on the results of the poll) for others that are coming up Friday or Saturday. Willing to share the site with others having small tents.

        In the poll it should have read that I’m willing to share a site(s).

          Something’s not quite right – viewing the list, SilentCal appears offset by a column compared to everyone else.

          And in actuality, I’m willing to share or have my own site. It’s just that I’ll have my slightly larger car-camping tent instead of the little backpacking one, and so will need a little more space…

            Geez Cathie always did say I was a little off kilter….. 🙄

            I have a small backpacking tent and won’t take up too much space. I don’t mind sharing a site at all. I’ll go early friday morning and grab some sites and will leave a message at the kiosk if need be.

              Odd indeed. There appears to be an extra tab in there somewhere.

              Oh, well. since Greg is on vaca this week, it’ll have to stay like that for a little while. Unless he’s loggin in remotely… but I know I wouldn’t be if I were him! 8)

                I need to add two people to my list. They will also be hiking the Hancocks with us. They hiked Carrigain last year with us and were interested in helping us out this year.

                    Hi Miles. I’m actually in Nashua right now posting this from my parent’s house… off exit 7E.

                    (For those who don’t know, living in Nashua is like living in New Jersey… what exit? ButI digress…)

                    The agenda hasn’t been set, but I think it’s generally planned as an all-day discussion, with breaks for food and drink, perhaps more of the latter at times.

                    I’ll start a new thread soon to layout a more specific agenda.

                      Thanks for the reply!

                      The reason I asked for the time was because my friend Jeff and I are planning on hiking Isolation that day and wanted to be able to stop by Hancock Campground to pick up on any new information for this years Flags on the 48. We had a great time on Carter Dome last year and are looking forward to this year’s event!

                      And just to clarify my Nashuan New Jersian location, I’m just off exit 5W in Nashua. :flag:

                        I’m sure later in the night we’ll all be by the campfire swapping stories and ideas still. I’m planning on bringing my grill and some burgers and dogs to enjoy. Some other flagbearers have asked me to keep notes and I’ll be happy to share. Looks like we’ll get a good turnout :flag: :flag: :flag:

                          I had originally planned to bring a couple of people, but I can’t reach them. Now I’m registered twice, woops.

                            Please drop me to 1 attendee (myself).
                            I’m still bringing my fairly large (4) tent, though – when I car-camp, comfort is important!

                              I’d like to attend, but with baby and difficult job, I may not be able to. I’ll wait on submitting my registration until I know more. So count me in as a definite maybe…

                              Oh yeah, and as a native New Jerseyan, we don’t use that silly “What exit?” phrase! That’s a New England invention. Even if we did, no one would know if you mean off the parkway or the turnpike. (We won’t mention why it was necessary to have both in one state)
