What to bring:
- Water bottle and/or Reusable Mug: There will be some disposable cups but please help us save mother earth and avoid waste by bringing your own water bottle and coffee mug.
- Tent & Groundcloth. You absolutely, positively MUST have a tent, although we encourage people to share. If you do not have a tent please let us know ASAP so that we can make arrangements. If you are bringing or buying a tent please note that while a two person tent, sleeps two, it will probably not accommodate two people and three days worth of gear. We suggest you select a tent that is rated for at least one additional person. E.g., bring a three person tent if you are a party of two. You should be aware that you must also lay down some kind of ground cloth under your tent: a tarp, heavy duty plastic sheeting, or model specific footprint.
- Sleeping Bag. It gets c-o-l-d up there in the hills! You will need to bring a sleeping bag rated for 40° F or below.
- Mattress Pad or Air Mattress. A mattress pad is a foam or inflatable mat (similar to a yoga mat), that cushions and insulates you from the cold, hard ground. An air mattress is essentially an air bed. It is much heavier than a mattress pad and requires an air pump to inflate. While air mattresses are much more comfortable than a mattress pad, they have a tendency to leak.
- Change of Clothes. Be sure to bring at least four (4) days change of clothes. You should be sure to bring both warm weather (summer) clothes, cool weather (fall) clothes and swimwear.
- Flashlight/Headlamp. News flash! Outside of New York City it gets dark at night. You may find a headlamp like the Petzl Tikka is more practical than a hand-held flashlight. You might also want to bring additional batteries as appropriate.
- Footwear. Hiking boots or rain boots, water shoes/aqua shoes and quick-drying sneakers (synthetic materials sí, canvas no). Extra socks are a very good idea.
- Towels & Toiletries. If you are participating in waterfront activities you will probably want to bring extra towels, clothesline and clothespins. Remember that we are staying at a campground and not a hotel; you will need to bring your own soap, shampoo, etc.
Early car people arrive early to set-up camp. Bus arrives 8:00pm. We set up tents, ask for help if needed. If you are an early to bed/light-sleeper, set-up away from main fire. If you want to stay up late, camp near the main fire. We then have dinner followed by quaker style campfire meeting.
Saturday morning: awake ready for breakfast; make lunch; be at launch site by 10am; 4 in a raft works best; have fun; stop along the way for snacks then lunch; bus back to showers. Prepare dinner; meeting. Lots of laughs about days trip, more campfire fun. Don't go to bed,you might miss something (last year, 2am belly dancing).
Sunday morning: breakfast followed by meeting and anniversary/newcomer presentations; then break down camp before days lounging, swimming, volleyball, whatever. Casual lunch; Bus arrives late afternoon, or ride back w/ someone or stay all afternoon w/ some of us stragglers.
